1991 Ford Mustang LX 5.0 High Output V8 from North America
An Intreguing Incentive
The Spark Plugs and Wires needed to be replaced, only due too bad installation though.
I needed a new battery after only 2 weeks, but that is also a reluctant fault.
Minor rust showed though very soon after my first winter, but it wasn't horrible for a 10 year old car.
This is for anyone reading up on their sports cars. Believe me, I've been there---done that with every aspect of an automobile. This is a great prize of American Muscle for any car enthusiast. Performance is second to none, acceleration (with minor upgrades) is worthy to play with the big boys. If you like cars just for a past-time, or you're sending it straight to the track, this car is ideal. I threw 15,000 dollars into my Mustang, and would do it again in 1/10 of a second. I never regretted racing a Ford, so don't be fooled. A Fox Body Mustang is and always will be King of the Road. If you want a real car, go with my advice, get a 'Stang. If you want problems and tugboat like acceleration, get an import or a Chevy.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

First of all the post is dated 2002. Second in NO WAY will a stock Chevy truck with a 305 "destroy" any 5.0 Mustang. Please... you have LESS POWER with MORE WEIGHT. Simple physics would tell you this is not a probable competitor for the Mustang. Your bro is just trying to make you feel good about driving around a slow truck or he just doesn't have any clue how to drive a stick. I'd love to race you for pink slips so I can have a nice winter beater truck to drive while the Mustang stays warm and dry!
0-60 is 6.2 seconds stock on the Mustang. From researching it the Chevy looks to be in the mid 8 seconds to low 9 seconds range stock with the 220 hp 305. Yeah, you're "destroying" Mustangs!!
If I put $15K into my 302, you wouldn't beat it with a Vette, never mind a truck with a 305 in it. Give me a break. This post is almost as hilarious as the Cavalier Z-24 guys that claim to beat 5.0 Mustangs!
