In my opinion, the fox body Mustang is the best overall vehicle built for a hot rod. It is the most versatile. You can drag race, street race, SCCA, cruise, family car... almost anything. It got descent gas mileage (for it's day) It was reliable, dependable, and relatively inexpensive. ...not to mention that the parts could be swapped out with so many other vehicles and aftermarket parts were everywhere.
Exactly why he loves it. Whenever he needs to find a replacement part for it,it's usually not to hard to find. One day I will learn to drive it.
And for as much crap I talk about it,I really do love the car
