I purchased my Mustang Gt in 1988. I have owned the car for 31 years. I bought the car when I was 22 years old, and although it was very expensive at the time, it turned out to be the best purchase I have ever made in my life. For the first 10 years that I owned it, it was the only vehicle I had and drove it pretty much every day. After that I got a Ford Ranger pickup truck that I would drive whenever the weather was bad as well as in the winter. My Mustang has been the most reliable vehicle I have ever owned. It starts every time on the first try, and it has only broken down once the entire time I have owned it.

The day I went to purchase it, I took it for a test drive and wound up coming out of the parking lot sideways because I wasn't used to its power.
Pros
Fast, maneuverable, sharp looking.
Cons
Poor gas mileage.

One of the last true pony cars, my old fox body was one of the best cars I've owned. It had a few minor issues on it, couple of small electrical items that were known issues but cheap fixes. Performance wise it was great, the ability to customize it to your own needs was even better.
Story
Too many to list, one though is when I just missed out on making it to the finals of a drag racing event. I only lost because I ended up red lighting. Had a lot of good times racing my car.
Pros
Easy to modify. Reliable. Cheap fixes. Good highway gas mileage. Attractive. Performance.
Cons
City gas mileage, electrical gremlins.
