Best value for straight line speed. Don't you dare turn though! Just kidding I can appreciate any work done to a car because it's a statement of yourself. I drive a 2000 Focus Hatchback and a lot of people look at me and ask why I fixed it up. My car is me and everyone that sees my car knows it's mine.

Tech-I like your car. I think you should be proud of the car and what it says about you. For one thing-you are one of the few American's who choose to drive a manual car.
You obviously have spent a lot of time keeping it groomed-the light blue on the seat looks great.

How you can change gear with the right hand amazes me!!


Just a short story-when I was a young fellow-we got a story of an American travelling in South Africa with his wife. He was injured in the outbacks and bled to death because his wife could not drive a Land Rover-Manual gearbox back to civilization.

Cheers

I'm likin' the 5.0...it's always been the 1st car I'd buy if I won the lottery
just so I could burn off the rear tires and not have to worry about how much it's costing me.


Is the red interior stock? I don't know if I've ever seen that on a Mustang.

Tech,

..... (I don't actually know what to say, as I am not a techie person... just someone who thinks he likes to try as much D-I-Ys as possible)... In reality, everything is maintained as 'standard-setting' as possible.


To add to it, Mustangs are not available in my country. But a very inexperienced person like me, might say, i think it looks like the old Honda Civic... Erg. Don't blast me for getting it wrong.


And the seats & interior = they match = parts of engine. Thee hee... That sure looks cool.

love the Notchback there tech...good but you should be punished for that spoiler I know we've all had issues with the notches having a sorta plain trunk but that doesnt justify that spoiler. go to your room and think about what you've done!
lol

If I had my way It would have been gone along time ago.I hate it as well.I haven't had the extra cash to buy a new trunk lid.The spoiler was installed before I bought it.It will be gone when its time to repaint.

don't worry about it! i have a doo-doo $400 beater 96 Volvo 850 5-speed and also an extremely clean black '88 Mustang LX 5.0 5-speed with t-tops, BBK long-tube headers, BBK 3" H-Pipe with Flowmaster 40 series on the end (exhaust ends tucked up under the car in front of gas tank - plenty of clearance for flames tho), cold-air-intake of some sort? no name brand, i think. underdrive pullies and a short shifter as well as lowered suspension on your same wheels except that they're clearcoated and in perfect condition. it's got a '93 Saleen wing on it and jet black tinted windows on the clean black paint (that i hand wax every single day.... *sigh* it'll never end!)

and yeah, girls not being able to drive stick FTL. i can't drive auto, i'd die - it would bore me to death!!!!

the mustang's definitely fun, though.... there's nothing like making it kick sideways at 100MPH in 5th gear with nothing but throttle, AND all the while sitting on Falken Ziex 255/50/R16 performance tires lol.
