I bought a '98 standard Mustang about 6 months ago with 85,000 miles on it, the interior in very good condition, and a repair needed here and there on the body of the car. . I decided to go with the 3.8 due to the fact that I was going to College and (at the time) gas was about $3.00 a gallon. Since I purchased it I have put some Halo headlights, DEPO taillights, Billet grill, custom emblems, blacked out my windows, and a few other things here and there. As for performance, all I have currently in the car is NGK plugs, performance wires, and a K&N filter. Nothing special yet but I have big plans in the near future such as a turbo....but that cost money you see. My passion for my car and for speed has caused me to spend every bit of extra money (hahah....sorry) on my car, so we will see what happens.
