I've got a bad feeling my toyota is starting to die, and am thinking about getting rid of it while its still worth some money, and am looking at several cars to replace it as a daily. (including a 1989 Cadillac fleetwood, lol!)
My friend sent me this link, of a 1994 Mustang LX (yes, i'd want the 4cyl) that looks to be in alright shape, how feasable would this be as a daily driver? How is the reliability? Mileage?
If you're looking for a 4 banger, why on earth would you want the mustang? All the unreliability of a domestic car plus the shite performance of an import? And according to sources, the performance is abysmal and the mileage poor for what you get. I think it's something like 83 horsepower. Truley a terrible car, only recommended for doing complete driveline swaps.
I suggest we make a thread about this. We could all go down to the ale house for drinks. I'll bring my destroyed camaro, despite it not having any headlights. (It would have to be during the day if so) Or working taillights for that matter... Or anything attached aft of the headers... heh
3-5 people should be quite enough.
How about ex-police P71 Interceptors? You can pick one up for $3000- $4000. They should be fairly reliable cars. The only downside is the rather poor fuel economy. Or, you could go for a B-Body Caprice (The newer ones looks the best IMO).
I kinda would like something old with like 70BHP, i dont mind being slow. As long as its somewhat reliable and not boring.
Looking into the Box GM cars or Lincon town cars, land yachts that can be had for 2 thousand in alright condition.
Never get a 4 banger domestic car that's potentially slower than a Tercel. And I should know..... I think the roots of that engine n be traced back to them exploding Pintos.I personally wouldn't suggest the 2.3L Mustangs unless if it's the SVO versions. If your just looking for a reliable and cheap car, either
a) Fix the Camry, shouldn't be much of a problem
b) Buy an '01-03 Corolla
You in the Miami-Ft Lauderdale area? Sure i'll check it out, if only to see how the MR2's drive. I dont really have the funds for it now (Camaro = Money sink, but a loud fun money sink)
And by 135 horsepower, you mean 90 right? I've had it checked. Unless they turned up the compression on the MR2 as much as they turned it down for the camry.
I love Crown Vix, but are you seriously suggesting them as a "Economy" car? With that said it is undeniable that you could pick a good one up for cheap with all the X-cop cars around.
Take gas mileage out of the equation, i don't care how fuel-economical it is, just ease and cost of repair, reliability, and that untangible "soul" that i think a big square caddy has in spades.
