I own this beauty for almost 7 months and I would say I had some small issues, but she didn't let me down at all. Mine is not a Shelby but C/S edition which has all of the Shelby package in it and runs light rocket. This is my favorite car of all time and with cheap upgrades you can make these run 11-12 in 1/4 mile. The only thing is because i got the Shelby's Maximum Performance package, my suspensions are so stiff that the car doesnt like bumps at all.

Great car to drive. I have a five speed with a V6. It still competes with the best of them. This has over 250,000 miles on it and it still gives any car in its class or higher a good run. People still ask me whats under the hood. I say just change the oil every 3000 miles and tune it up with some plugs every 5000 miles. The car is great on gas. The best part, I brought this car for $300.00 sitting in someone's backyard with weeds growing around it and wasp nest in the door jambs. I was told it hasn't run for years. "One day it stop running." So I hook up some cables to the battery. It turns, but didn't start. No spark. I change the coil, turn the key...Voom! on the first crank. What a car!

Well I got the car and alomost immediatly I started to have some problems with it. I eventually got a new engine, catalytic coverter, radiator, and the tranmission rebuilt; twice. It runs good now but there are still some things that could be better. The radiator fan is hooked up to a manual switch on the dash because when the engine was changed the person that did the work screwed up the wiring. I would like to get new glass all around and a new paint job aswell. I'm working on getting new tires and wheels for it. I would also like to soup up the engine and get more horse power out of the 5speed manual 2.5Ltr 4-banger engine. It's my first car and I'm learning a lot and want it to run better.

I am a proud owner of a 1991 Daytona
Es. The car is moderately well loaded.
I accumulate mileage quickly, and my
daytona has had very few problems. It
is a high mileage vehicle (160k) but is
still running strong. I did however
replace the transmission not that long
ago, due to some internal bearing noise
(previous owner didn't fill up trans
lube) and the only other beef I have is
the fact that it blows some blue smoke
dude to worn valve seals (very common

Fairly reliable, sporty looks, good
handling, looks great with ES ground
effects, looks stupid without them! I
retired this car at 175K, since I now
have a wife and baby daughter, and the
backseat (what backseat?) is too small,
and the car sits too low to the ground
for my wife. Otherwise, it still runs great!
Although My ES doesn't have the
Overdrive Automatic(a historical trouble
spot), the 3 speed auto transmission did
die at 120K. I have the same trans in a
'96 Voyager and, at 107K, it's starting
to hiccup in the same manner. just be
sure you expect a trans problem. I
haven't had any problems with the 2.5L 4
cyl, except for injector/throttle
cleaning and an EGR valve.
