Re: How Much Do You Love The Mustang???
I prefer the current (2005+ style). My dads '91 LX 5.0L hatch was quite the machine in it's day for the price. Purchased new and moderately abused with minimal repair costs. Headroom suffered, but the removable sunroof was nice. Modifications were also a plenty and it was before OBDII came into effect.
At least the GT500 can be had as a go fast, factory warrantied machine. Still, if I had to pony up that kind of dough I'd opt to get a much better balanced Corvette, even more so for longer freeway slogs.
As much as I like the current cars, I'd opt to find an earlier 90's in half decent shape first. I should buy a new one, take it to a coach builder and tell them to add a third row so I can dump the SUV. Just think, a 22' long Mustang, boasting a V8 with V6 like performance weighting it at 4500lbs that can seat seven. Each door is also ten feet long. ick.
