The only car I ever wanted was a Mustang, sure test driving the Camaro Z28 was nice, and the older Corvette was a thrill, but it was not close to the Mustang me and my dad test drove, I knew right off, that was my car. I have never had any engine problems. I honestly beat the hell out of the car too. My next car will be in 2004 when the redesigned Mustang comes out. I could afford a Vette or BMW, but a Mustang is the only car i want to drive.
The outside is beautiful and the gauges are second to none. Its kinda cramped for my dad who is 6'2 to get inside the car, but its not that big of a problem, the Mach sound system is outstanding, my friend bought a $2000 system for his car, and mine sounds better.
Bigger engine, i do get beat off the line against foreign cars usually. Although if i was realbig into street racing, i would have gotten a Cobra.
