I'm 43 and this is my second Mustang.
First one, I bought new in 1981, and
it was a tragedy from day one. This
03 car, although just the base model,
has plenty of punch for my purposes.
Yes, I'd have liked the V8, but I have
a perfect driving record in spite and
the big engine would inevitably put
points on my record. I'm 6-2 and 220,
but the car has plenty of leg room.
I do have to pop the steering wheel
up to get my legs under it, but once
in, it's really comfortable. The
car hit 110mph over the weekend--
on a track, of course!--with no problem.
Best part is, I got it NEW for less
than 13 grand with a 4.7 interest
rate. All in all, quite happy.
Fun to drive; looks great; comfortable.
Small trunk; handling gets choppy on
bumpy curves or corners.
