I bought my hard top GT new in 1996.
It been a pretty reliable car with a
couple of exceptions. My brakes have
lasted 60k miles with hard driving. The

20k miles. I plan to purchase a new
car this year but I will keep the
Mustang for a second vehicle.
The appearance and it is fun to drive
are the main things that I like.

only has 215HP, I think the new ones
are 265HP which needs to be 300HP.
Also the ride is rough and skips on
