1991 Ford Mustang LX 5.0 2dr Hatchback
Great car. Built very well, never had any problems other than the usual replacing of water pump, hoses, and alternator after 80 or so thousand miles of driving. The alternator was actually due to not being able to handle my 750w amp and sound system. Vehicle is very easy to work on. Very light. Can't stress that enough, especially compared to todays vehicles. Not nearly as comfortable, but it does have something that todays cars lack, and that's raw excitement. Nothing today feels like the way you do when you stomp on the throttle and hear the 5.0 roar as it sinks you back and makes you feel as if your car is tearing through the wind and clawing at the asphalt. Very exciting.
Light weight! Think of a Ford Focus, (Modern) Honda Civic, Nissan Sentra, etc. But with the hp and torque of an old school pushrod V8. Easy to work on design, huge aftermarket to increase performance to that of, or better than, modern performance. Large cargo space capability (hatchback). Timeless look
No cupholders! Usual rust around the glass frames and hatch. Small width of rear tires don't stand a chance to the globs of torque this small V8 thumps out. Full length sub-frames help a ton with chasis creeks and groans along with a more comfortable ride, to me anyways. By todays standard, more HP.
