1987 Ford Mustang 5.0 GT 5.0 V8 from UK and Ireland
One word: FUN!
Nothing... Except clutches. This car made a hooligan of me and I got through two of them!
This car put a grin on my face for seven years.
Neck-snapping performance. Changing down from fifth to third gear when overtaking was like a rocket boost.
Enormous fun to drive. Great handling, although you have to watch out over-steer in the wet especially. I had owned a 2.8 V6 Mustang before, but I wasn't prepared for the power of the 5.0 V8! A much better car than the Toyota Supra I had before it, particularly from a driver's perspective.
Not as good on fuel as a V6, but what do you expect? At 21mpg it was reasonably affordable though, and well worth it for the kicks!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
