The S197 style Mustang has been out for 5 years now
Is everyone happy with their car? Has it been what you hoped for? This upcoming mid October I will have owned my GT/CS for 3 full years and am so happy with it. This is the car I wanted. There isn't another car I wish I had. I still think they are the best looking cars on the road.
I give Ford high marks for restyling this car starting in 2005 and refining it since then. I'm glad I own a Mustang. I always want the newest one that comes out each year with the new refinements but, I don't have that kind of money. So, as of right now I have about 78,000 miles in 3 years and am ready to put many more miles on it!

I haven't been disappointed by this car at all myself except the usual, wish it had an independent rear... Other than that I just love it.
I hooked up the hose, ran water through the engine, started it up and was waiting for the water to come out clean. Anyways, About 3 minutes into this, then engine starts shaking and shuts off. I figured it was all cleaned out so I plugged it up, added the oil and figured I was ready to go. WRONG! The car won't freaking start now. This car has been nothing but trouble for me, I think I am done with it.
its been like four years now with 22,000 miles. i love my mustang gt (gt500) i wouldnt trade it for a real one, cuz there all over the place and yet mines not real but it unique
I decided to go ahead and flush it to make sure all the bad stuff got out. I hooked up the hose, ran water through the engine, started it up and was waiting for the water to come out clean (The engine never went above idle so I was told this would be ok).
My current 06 GT is my 2nd Mustang and yes, I plan on keeping it a long long time!
Got it paid off couple months ago and I'll finish modding it to where I want sometime next year then I'm start hunting for a clean fox body convertible cruiser!
I absolutely LOVE my Mustangs! The s197 body style is sweet and as close to retro as you can get, BUT the SN95 is a very close second in the aesthetics department. I have a New Edge, SN95, and s197 and the SN95 continues to catch my eye frequently.
I did think the s197 GT's were going to be faster than they actually are, but after owning one I can see a Supercharger is where I'm going to have to go in order for it to be "fast" without beating the dogsh!t out of it.

I was thinking about this last night when I was buffing and waxing my car... I have been really wanting a c6 vette/03 cobra, but the more I look at them, the more I think ****. There is no way I could trade this car for anything. I absolutely love it. 43k miles since Jan. 4, 2007. Pretty sure I'll be paying cash for my next car and keeping this till the day I die. S197 FTW!
