Ford Mustang Enthusiast

My first vehicle was a 69′ Stang 302 and I’ve been a FORD FAN ever since. Our family consists of an fox body 89′ GT (few mods), – VERY FAST and FUN to drive, 89 LX (lots of mods) VERY, VERY FAST and my daily driver the 95′ GT with 288k MILES and is still a very dependable car. She gets on average 405 miles per week as I commute back and forth to work. This car still has the ORIGINAL CLUTCH, does not use oil, does not leak and STILL LOOKS GOOD. I’m saving my $$$$’s for a new 5.0 GT, but mine now such a good car I hate to waste a good quality vehicle and not use up every last mile she has. That will be one sad day….=( but for now she is running strong =) as ever – lookin good, with no issues….so, I will stay loyal to her for as long as she gets me to and from anywhere I need to go…..GREAT JOB FORD WHEN PUTTING THIS ONE TOGETHER…… MustSally89′

Jared I believe it, totally! I have a 94 Mustang GT and it had over 250,000 plus miles and was still running strong. Of course I was doing engine work with a buddy and we tried to drill out a broke bolt, bad idea. Should have left it for the experts lol. but now I got another 5.0 in it with 88,000 miles so I am sure I will have it for many, many years to come.:-)

Tammy F Thanks Linda, I tried to post a pic of the 95', but it wouldn't take, not sure why?? People just can't believe the miles and how she still looks...unbelievable....and is not babied at all. Oh....love your 91', my 89GT (34K miles) is only driven on nice sunny clear days. But, I must say, "I can't resist a good race!" =) My best time was 13.02 in the 1/4 ml. she is a strong...strong running car and soooo...much fun...I especially LUV runnin against the IMPORTS and the best part.... they can't stand it when a girl out runs them in a AOD!

I had a thought when the website Jalopnik asked for the best way to spend $1 million dollars on cars: enthusiast dealership. I bought a Focus ST last year and feel that it is a largely overlooked vehicle in the Ford lineup (as is the Fiesta ST).  Auto magazines and enthusiasts all praise the fun factor that each vehicle brings but the average, or even above average, informed consumer can not distinguish the ST trim from S, SE, SEL or even Titanium. I, personally, would love a small experimental dealership that focuses on this admittedly niche market.  Lot size would be smaller as inventory would be smaller but perhaps a larger lot could still be used as an autocross location.  In this way, ST and Mustang owners would use their vehicles to a greater extent of their capabilities.  It would be like if Jeep were to have a small off-road course in their backyard. This autocross lot could also be used to hold defensive driving courses that assist in Ford owners lowering their insurance costs upon completion. With the advent of the new Mustang I believe this could be a termendous concept in practice.  Consumers would have an informed direct playing field for the different trims and engine offerings.  Even without a purchase coming from everyon on the lot, overall foot traffic would be higher due to the appeal that performance variants have to young professionals. The best part is that, for me in the Northeast, the ST would be presented as a primary thought to the consumer where Subarus have been selling like hotcakes.  Many consumers up here do not even think that Ford offers a fun hatchback that could compete with the WRX.  With the growing success of Subaru in the Northeast I believe that Ford is missing out on those looking to grab a more engaging vehicle. I found that, with snowtires, there was nothing that could stop me in my ST last winter. I often passed AWD vehicles that were sliding backwards on a hill. The low end torque available from the Ecoboost 4 cylinder was tremendous. While I have no expectations from this comment perhaps someone could continue the discussion with me at a later time. At the very least it would be an entertaining concept to discuss.
