My step father graciously gave me his 97 v6 mustang. I have only owned 2 other 4 wheeled vehicles, my first car was a 1990 fox body 4 cyclinder mustang. The love did not last. Two years later I bought a 2000 Dodge Dakota pick up. It also was 4 cylinder. I have driven this truck for 17years. She is starting to have some serious issues, but she's been reliable. This mustang is a lot of fun to drive, I love the short throw of the manual shifter. I have never had a fast 4 wheeler, this car is peppier than I am used to, but it's way slower speeding up to crusing speed than my bike. It's made me appreciate how zippy my little bike is at rational speeds. This thing is great for hauling my kiddo, who is not ready to ride the bike.
