I love the attention

I have an 88 that's in pretty good condition, everyone tries to guess the year but they're usually wrong. they'll usually guess '91. Anyways I love it when i'm at the red light or gas station and someone flags me down wanting to buy my Stang. Or I'll have perfect strangers walk up and tell me stories about when they had a foxbody. it'll never get sold, but I love the attention. I get atleast 4 offers a week. Mustangs for life

Great condition foxes are a hard fine, especially around me, my buddy drove to Tennessee from here in NJ just to look at a great condition fox, wound up buying it and driving it back home, he looked for sooooo long for a really great condition fox...I want a 91 super bad but rarely see them in a good condition

I've been wanting one probably since 88, they are always my favorite, excluding the 60s. I only paid $2500 for mine. It needs a lil work on the rear quarter panel and a new rear end. The new ones I pee a lil every time I see one.

I got mine from a guy who was looking for a truck to buy, sold me his fox for $2500, I got it n got the phuk outta there in case I wanted to change his mind. Need a lil work but runs like a champ.

The guy I bought mine from didn't tell me the rear end was bent, but other than that it runs great. I'm the third owner (and final) owner it was kept by a older guy i'm assuming cause I have ALL the records done to it. It has almost 200,000 miles and runs tip top. Minor problems, lil cosmetic damage on driver side rear quarter panel. The front bumper looks like some one pulled up too close to a curb to park. The previous owner "forgot"to mention the bent axle. I feel like I still got a great deal. Plus I know someone who's selling me the rear axle and two front hubs to convert to 5 lugs and disc brakes all around $250. How much did u end up paying for urs.
