    Smokey Finder — SMOKEY FINDER - Rental car for our vacation in Virginia Beach. I just had to drive the new Mustang when they first came out so I reserved one with Hertz at the Norfolk Airport. I was not disappointed with the drop dead looks of this car. We drove it across the Chesapeake Bay Tunnel to friends in Maryland. On the way we stopped at a small diner in a small town for lunch. A few minutes after we sat down some other customers came in and were talking about the cool Yellow 'stang out front. The car was a dream to drive. During the drive back to Virginia Beach the next day, everything was clicking - the weather was great, the road was wide open, and the car beckoned to me. As I rounded a slight downhill turn to the right I noticed something odd in the middle of the highway. It was Smokey and he had his radar gun trained on the grill. Busted!!! He got me for doing 70 in a 55. Cost me $75. Bottom Line - Ford hit a homerun with this one - at least the sheetmetal. I hear they have been working over the years to improve the guts.

    Pros: Great looks, head turner

    Cons: Performence did not match the appearance

    Its A Wonderful Car For Someone Who Has A Small Family And The Younger Set — I love the car, its just that we are older and its for the much younger set. Drives great, runs great, interior and exterior in great shape considering the year. New brakes have been added, new windshield. It is fun to drive. Has not been in the shop at all since we've had it. It is a 2 owner car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The car is a very nice looking car, it drives beautifully, little noise, comfortable, back seat is usual not too small. Everything is in VGC as far as we can tell.

    Cons: Too small for us.

    Excellent Retro Styling, No Major Mechanical Problems, Excellent Handling — I dislike the hard plastic in the interior. The carpeting is also not very dense nor are the factory floor mats. Adequate power especially for a six cylinder. Handles great, stops great. Kind of hard to see out the back if you're shorter.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Awesome styling. I feel in love with the concept car. That's why I duplicated it. Shaker 1000 sound system, red leather interior, brushed aluminum accents, Mycolor dash

    Cons: Head restraints suck eggs! Hard plastic in the interior scratches easily.

    Great Car For Those Who Love American Muscle. — Love it! Fun to drive, great power train. The perfect platform for modification and customization. So many aftermarket parts for it, the possibilities are endless. No two are alike. Capable of being a serious racer with some modification. Parts to upgrade this car are not too expensive. It is easy to work on and a joy to have.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: So many aftermarket parts for it.

    Cons: Driving in snow/ice.

    I Need More Seat Time! — Total blast to drive! Quick, handles well, stops on a dime and gives you change, most comfortable Mustang I have owned for road trips, gets good fuel mileage if you keep it under street racing limits. Only real problem is it wears out rear tires prematurely;)

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Fun to get in trouble with!

    Just Pure Fun — I love my Mustang. The fun factor is at the top. It fits me and my wife perfectly. I did have to put a Short Shifter in it. I also put a little wider tire on it. The 235's didn't do it. I went with 255's at all four corners.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fun Factor

    Cons: Fuel Cost
