Default I drove a mustang GT

I test drove a '95 mustang GT today for my sister. It sucks. It was plenty fast but man it rode like a Mack truck. Every little bump it threw the car around, there was a cluncking coming from back (broken stut maybe). It felt cramped inside. I just didn't like it. I have always wondered what those thing were like to drive. Now i know, and im not missing anything.

lol, i wish my bonne'* ride was better than what it is, 16x,xxx miles on oem struts dont really work out too well. My friend finally let me drive his red 99' camaro z28, its a six speed manual. i almost pooped a little bit when i dropped it into second and just punched it, that is by far the fastest car i have ever driven.

The 90'* stangs rode like you had a brick strapped to your arse. I drove a 2009 GT last week and was impressed with the speed, handling and ride. It'* a sports car, but not a luxury sports car (executive cruiser) like the Bonnies though.

The 95 you drove had a f-ed up suspension. My boy has a 95 and that thing will move, the bumps don't throw it around either. Now, it can't take a corner at 100+, but that'* not what we built it for. We built it for the straight line. Now, his 03 Cobra on the other hand...scares me to say the least.

If you've never taken a corner at 120+, find a car that can do it, and go for it. That'* a real thrill.

I drove a 95 GT with the 5.0. I feel that car is just a burnout machine. It was a fun drive though.

That would look a little bit like this.

This was the first time i drove a Mustang, i am not impressed. A buddy of mine had a '98 Z28 and yes, it will make your butt hole pucker with a second gear drop and flooring it. He went on to modify the suspention for SCCA racing and it still rode better than this stang. He didn't do much to the engine, left it bascially stock. It would eat the mustang for lunch in every way. He even pulled 28mpg on the interstate. LOL. It has been sold for a 07 GXP Solstice with a stage two turbo.
