I found an old picture while we were cleaning out drawers of my 99 R1 and my 91 GT, this was prior to kids, probably about 2001, but I'm kinda thinkin 2000, maybe late 99 since I sold the mustang right before oldest was born.  I miss both of these

I hate to say it but that was a particularly ugly era for the Mustang.  Tony, I'm sure you have great memories of it but damn that thing looks boxy.  I feel like every car model has its peak and its valleys.  :D

yeah, I can't disagree, the beauty in that car was the ability to mod it on the cheap and it was extremely easy to work on.  those things are fetching HUGE dollars, clean low mileage examples getting mid-teens now for a car that barely cost that when new.  saw a clean 93 cobra yesterday and they wanted $27k for it.

I had a soft spot for them cuz mine was pretty heavily modded and the thing ran like a scared cat, it was a 9.9/10.1 sec car if I had ever put slicks on it.  on crappy street tires I could get into the high 11's even with my weak ass driving, a good driver could have gotten 11.2-11.5 easily

I had this one (1984 convertible) in white with red interior but that black section of the hood was white like the rest of the car.  I wouldn't call it one of the high-spots in terms of Mustangs and the car itself was a bit of a lemon.  But I did put an ass-kicking Alpine stereo in it with a badass amp.  Probably why my ears are ringing to this day.  :lol:

i had a pretty bad ass alpine stereo as well in my 91GT, 2- JL Audio 10" subs, 4x80w alpine and 2x150 alpine sub amp, 4 sets of Polk Audio component speakers everywhere else with Alpine head unit.  it wasn't a huge BOOM system but it would rock pretty good.  ya, my left ear has a little tinnitus in part because of that car as well.  my AC didn't work and I had a monster motor with a loud ass exhaust so my windows were almost always open and you had to run the stereo loud to cover up the exhaust note  LOL

I totally get the idea of being able to work on the car.  I am not into the mechanics but I loved to pull out factory radios and put something better in its place.  Growing up I drove a 1976 Pinto, a 1980 Citation, a 1980 Mercury Capri and a 1984 Mustang and I ripped the factory stuff out of all of them and put in better systems with amps and better speakers.  Everything was right there for you to screw around with and if you needed some sort of conversion plate (or whatever), there were all kinds of things for that.  After I did that my friends asked me to do it for them too.  Eventually it was way too complicated to get to things and that was the end of that.  I'm sure people who like to work on engines come to the same conclusion eventually.

I had a 1980 Citation. In the mid-1980's-1990's. Cheap used car, drove it until the wheels fell off. Was a decent little car. But, every Chevy I ever owned had a rattle somewhere deep in the dash that you could never find!
