I really love this car. Car and Driver rated it the car of the year and I have to agree.
The stock sway bars, auto adjusting suspension, spring rates, limited slip rear differential and 4 wheel disk brakes were the best Ford had to offer that year. It makes this a great handling car! Especially when you put on some 50 series V rated tires.
The interior is fantastic! Instrumentation is well laid out and all the controls and buttons are right where I want them.
The 8 way power cloth seats have faded from black to blue, but have held up very well and I can always find that comfortable riding position which isn't always easy in most cars because of my bad back.
The gadgets on this car a great! It has every option I can think of and then some. Like they said, "It's an electronic dream machine"
This is definitely a car for the open road. I wouldn't recommend this engine for the city. The 2.3 Turbo actually had more power than the 5.0 for that year, but I find the bottom end sometimes lagging. Once you're on the open road you can wind it out and the 5.0's just can't keep up. I know, I've raced a couple.
Like I said, I love this car. I've had this car 6 years and I just finished doing a total restoration/rebuild on it. It's a keeper.
