I have 4 Mustangs 3 manuals and 1 auto. The auto is a 89 5.0 LX and it's a fun to drive. Just make sure it shifts good. If you buy it and don't like it you should be able to sell it quickly this time of year.

An auto would make for a nice casual drive. I love my manual but occasionally I get tired of having to shift.
