Speed its quick decently fast to 40 overall its what i expected and i have drove an svt and my mustang is absolutly quicker and i have an ATX

Handling it defintly corners nice in a somewhat sharp curve by my house if i was goin 25 in the tour i would be in danger of crashing i can go 40 in the stang and stick like glue.

Bucket seats are comfortable and nice looking if you get the 2 tone ones

Car does not get tossed around from wind on the highway like the tour u can cruise at 85 w/ no issues at all

Gas mileage if u drive like an ass 16/25 if u drive normal 19/28

Its RWD making it fun as far as mods there is laot you can do the gt exhaust bolts rite on u can get them for $100 if you wnated they have a 11psi procharger intercooled supercharger and vortech maks a kit..

Best mod get 3.73 gears costs arond 650-1050 w/ instilation depending on were u get parts and instalation.. Best mod ever your car will be liek a rocket off the line u will loose osme top end power

Overall its a fun car it gets looks most people dont know [censored] about cars and tihnk it costs alot more tahn it did




holy hell...P-U-N-C-U-A-T-I-O-N! I counted 5...just 5 periods in that entire thing. and in two of those cases, it was a double period (i assume you were trying for an ellipsis, but that would require three of them). oh, almost forgot the one period used for your gearing numbers, so 6 of them. and why the v6 atx? at least go for the manual tranny.

Okay I didn't remember exactly when they changed the heads, intakes, cams, body style, etc. So all 99+ Mustangs then.

You'll never sell me on the 94-95's & hardly ever on the 96-98's.




i have to disagree...i just bought a '95 gt sunday,and it is a great car...it is soooooo much more solid,refined,and more comfortable than any fox body(and i have owned 5 of them over the years)and the best part of it is that it still has the same 5 liter engine as the fox....cheap mods!!!!

my car has MINOR bolt ons and is putting down 225 Rwhp and 285 Rwtq....and has run a best of 14.2....this car pulls waaaaay harder than my svt ever did in any gear...it seems to handle pretty good as well...

I test drove a new 2000 Mustang V6 ATX convert once. Ugh. Can you say cowl shake?

The thing rides like it's on rails...because it feels as heavy as a freight train!

No handling, no power, no sex appeal, no nothing. Awful interior, blatty exhaust note, ugh.

But I also drove a 2001 Cobra convert. Same rotten interior, but what an engine! And decent handling, although heavy friction-filled steering (so unlike the Focus).

i agree with most of you guys, but phasing out the v6,never happen,, look at the stats, v6 is their #1 seller,,cause not everyone wants the power but the want the look. The look is its slight downfall cause they all pretty much look the same. Only major diff in them now is the exhaust set up. V6 alright,,riding on rails cause its so heavy i would definitely have to agree. My ex-girl had a 98 mtx and an 01 atx. major difference but they both sucked to me and they were both v6's. That to me is who the v6 is made for,,the ladies.

And i hope you're not to tall,, leg room is non-existant. They might as well be 2 seaters. I've driven the cobra, gt and v6 from al years from 89 thru 03. All i can say is damn them for not keeping the 5.0. My bddy had a 90' convertible stang 5.0 atx. After 2 tranny's and a serious make over, it was real nice. Ran a 13.8 in the 1/4 and then died at the track,,funny shyt that night.

I say skip the mustang idea and buy yourself an SVT... I was in your shoes about 2 weeks ago, except my previous car 97 SE v6 5spd is in great shape! I wanted something faster, more mods availble for and a slight upgrade. So i found a high mileage SVT that will be recieving a 01+ 3L, quaife, spec clutch and flywheel setup But then again if your looking for a car to race... i still would'nt go with a stang if you want fast,cheap,realiable and easy to work on? get a generation 1 probe GT turbo my buddy bought one for 700 put a 1000 into it and it runs mid 13's on street tires... biggest plus it only has 56k miles on it

U all hate on the Mustang and as fas as looks go the only difference form my 6 to the gt is the GT badging the dual exhaust and the hood scoop witch i ordered for 130 painted...

Most importantly its still a Mustang and there cheap I got my 03 that was 10 months old for 13000 and that included the 6yr 100,000mile warrenty. I couldnt find a better car for that price this new.. its ok its not a GT or a Cobra but im 23 and personally I dont feel im ready to have a GT or Cobra yet, i would be driving like an a-hole in it all day, so in a few yrs when i can handle myself i plan on getting a cobra

mustangs are cockroaches...they are everywhere

they have a decent fun factor and can definitely become fast cars, but the tour sets us apart...lose that and blend in with the rest, might as well get the wifey a honda while yer at it
