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.

The car is super fast! The handling is great, as well as everything else. 225 horse doesn't sound like much, but it uses all of them. That's for sure. If you find one with power everything, moon roof, and a five speed, it's like driving a really fast Caddy. Overall this truly is the best bang for your buck. I found mine for an even $3,000. It looks like it rolled off of the showroom floor. The best part is that with minor mods you can put this car in to the 300+ horsepower range. In '91 the engine is better than later years. You can also find parts much easier for this year.
Ford had a turbocharged, carbureted, 4-cylinder Mustang in the early 80s. They also sold turbocharged Escorts for a SHORT time in 83-84. The Mustang SVO, a very SWEET car, was a 2.3L Turbo with fuel...
