    I just sold mine a few months back but i loved the thing. They're pretty reliable and aftermarket parts are cheap which is good cause they damn slow stock.

    They're nice cars, but I still prefer the Fox body 'stangs to the 5.0 SN95's.

    I've got an '03 Cobra right now, but would love to have my '92 GT back as well.

    I always keep an eye open for a '93 Cobra though :big grin:

    The 94's and 95's are ok... If you want most bang for buck performance and most bang for the buck mods go for the 99-2004.

    I diasgree. You want bang for the buck, get a '92 or '93 5.0 LX Coupe. They are all over the place, they are dirt cheap and to mod.

    89-92, best injection system and they are factory forged bottom ends. The 94-95 have a diff computer or something and dont run as well as the earlier ones. BUT the stop better and handle better. Also look better too.

    Not to me. That's why I bought a '93, I hated the '94 styling.

    Yeah, Foxbodies weigh less too. Can't beat them.

    Dont get me wrong, I love the foxes (Got a 89 lx hatch) but personally It think the newer ones are sharper looking. All opinions though. I would rather have the performace of the fox

    I have a 95 cobra which i must say i really like, its not as fast as id like it to be but i know if i had the funds getting this thing to go fast will be no problem. Ive had the car used for 30k miles now and only thing which is common is the harmonic balancer went out on me, clutch went too but thats normal wear and tear with any car. now it has 107k miles on it. Ford has stayed by the 5.0 from 1968 i believe all the way to 1998 they are dead reliable motors and last really long time. the new mod motors are awesome too but if u want a mustang 94-95s arent bad unless ofcourse u plan to keep it stock then i would atleast get a cobra . Ya but the computers in these cars are not really and issue until u change cams and then they go all crazy, the computer doesn't like cams with lower LSA numbers such as 112 or 114 at which point if someone changes cams i hope that got some decent flowing heads as well in which case the car would need to be tunned anyways so that it runs reliable and makes power the friendly cams will have a higher LSA of 116 i believe
