I picked up this nice little 1999 Mustang GT 5-speed to celebrate getting a new job... that and I was tired of driving around somebody else's car. New remanufactured Ford motor from last year! 3 yr/100k mile warranty on that. 110k miles on the rest of the car, runs great. Sounds good, has an aftermarket exhaust system from the headers back. New radiator and clutch installed with the motor.

Any other Mustang lovers here? This is my third 'stang. :)

Nice one Mike. Kind of looks like the previous owner wasn't just driving it down to the corner grocery store.

I liked this generation of Mustang. It had just a few classic styling cues here and there, while the current one goes overboard with the retro styling, and ends up looking like a caricature.

I own a caricature car, my daily driver for 2.5 years was a 1981 Comutacar.
Still the best car I own (mainly because its free to drive in my case)

As for stangs, I tried to teach a guy at work how to get 40mpg with his stang, if I owned one I would probably get 50mpg but it would be much less enjoyable to drive than my
5mt 2001 Honda Insight getting 84mpg.

Pulse and glide all the way.
