I've driven 3 of these (all in the family)
My older sister has a 1988 in great shape with the 5.0L & loaded the seats are comfy, it has torque and gearing to haul weight but it'* far from fast but no one is going to hurt you with that big hunk of steel around you.
My little sister got a 94 from my stepdad (thankfully she likes gm.) It burns oil, burns oil doesn't get the best gas mileage. But it'* reliable as a ford can get. (transmission makes a werid vibration sometimes, which was semi fixed by a new oil ford reccommended to run in there. Mercon V?)
My Grandpa has a 2000 or 2001 and like the others it feels torquey but it'* not fast.
Not bad cars; I'm not a ford guy but
