    Well guys I finally bought a new Mustang. I got a 1991 LX with a five speed. This is my FIRST five speed. I had never driven a stick and stalled it once bringing it home on a 15 mile trip. It is no comparison to my AOD car. Guys I can hardly contain my excitement!!!! It's got 3.73 gears, full exhaust, subframes, front brace, throttle body, maf, underdrives and a short shifter. I'm thinking with some practice 13's are a possibility. It's like an emerald green with gray interior and it's clean. Oh, it's also got Pony rims with Toyo tires on all corners. My brother cut me a nice deal on it, man I finally feel like a real man! My only question is, how long does it take for the feeling that this car is insanely fast to wear off? :D

    Congratulations on the recent purchase.

    I remember when I was driving my first Mustang (88 LX 5.0) home after transferring the title. I punched it on the on-ramp to the interstate (aka, "the launching pad") and it got squirrelly. I was grinning from ear to ear while my dad was in the passenger seat doing the same. As one of my friends once put it well, "This car has some serious balls." But, everyone's right, you'll soon be thinking of all the different ways that you can make it faster. And just wishing the money would roll in so that you could do it all! LOL Enjoy your new one...great cars!

    i got sick of mine in 2 days, give or take one. glad to see another 5spd owner. your car has allot of basic stuff done to it so its a pretty good representation of the good old 5.0. change as many fluids as you can and drive it.

    The feeling might last until you suffer your first loss. :nice: Congrats though. Like CarFreak I still remember when I got my first 5-speed 5.0 and the first time I got sideways. This was me: :D
