Geck's 02 Mustang GT

Where else could I go for a sporty car
with a V8, manual transmission and rear
wheel drive, all for under $25K?
The engine performance is great, needs
better suspension. $6 grand for a
Griggs suspension looks like the most
effective fix available.
The seats leave much room for
improvement. Uncomfortable on long
trips, virtually zero side support, and
being leather occupants slide around
when cornering. I'm 6' tall and have
to drive with the seat all the way
back, and the back of the seat to its
furthest back position. Power seat is
not very adjustable, seatback position
V8, manual trans., rear wheel drive.
Excellent acceleration, sporty. My
dealer has been very responsive to
needed warranty work including leaky
windshield and very noisy AC. All
fixed promptly without whining.
Needs locking gas cap cover with
release from inside, heater AC controls
with separate button for AC,
retractable radio antenna (or in
glass), ignition switching
with "accessory" adjacent to "run",
dual trip odometer, tiedowns and hooks
in trunk, 6 way power seat.
