All I can say is wow. Car was bought as a wreck from an insurance company. Had some panel damage but the airbags originally killed the car. Fixed it up and got it back on the road. It has been in 6 wrecks since then and been rebuilt every time at a fairly cheap cost. The thing won't stop kicking. Car is fun to drive. The rack-and-pinion steering in this car means you are directly connected to the road, no power steering in your way. Just you and the road. The car has plenty of zip. When the car shifts above 50, you will find yourself trying to slow the thing down, it wants to go fast. The heater in the car is powerful, it will heat the car fast. The a/c is like a normal car. Great car in all.
lots of zip great heater lots of durability, survived 6 wrecks in its whole life that required panel replacement. rack-and-pinion steering, direct control
raising the car might help, we scrape all the time on the hills in Athens Ohio but these are also wreck related problems so nothing to report bad here.
I have owned and driven my car since day one when she came off the truck. She only has 70000 miles on her. It is only driven in the nice weather because our Indiana winters can be harsh on the car because of the salt and also the bigger tires on the vehicle. We took it to the 45th anniversary in Birmingham and she performed very well on the track and proved that she could give the more powerful Mustangs a run for the money. It was not a timed thing but just a chance to be on a spectacular road course. It has been a fun car to drive for 15years and still looks excellent inside and out. No she is not for sale.
I like the 5speed manual transmission and the comfortable leather seats. It could use a better cup holder that didn't leak all over the console.
Bought this car used at 10 years old. Still looked good for its age. The car road bad, but later fixed this (new springs, shocks/struts). Parts are cheap and it can be made to go fast cheap. Car had zero rattles until I drove around with no exhaust for a while. Gas mileage stunk big time.
Cheap to fix, build and work on. The car looks good for its age. Can't beat the mustang sound.
Better engine. Something that has more power and gets better gas mileage (ls1 type engine). This is way too late, but I made suggestions.
I have owned my GT since 1997 arguably the most reliable American made car I have ever owned and that Ford has deisgned and manufactured. I have replace clutch and pressure plate and brakes. regular oil changes and I bought it with 15,000 miles on the odometer it now has 230,000 and counting never replaced engine;it still turns head and can still giddyup!
The engine's low baritone throttle is the best and is dependable. Inexpensive repairs. Fun to drive.
Sound system is not as nice as lexus or nissan bose. Terrible in snow and rain due to rear wheel drive traction.
