    my 90 2.3 was the most fun car i've ever had. She died 3 months after i got her, but it was great, I drove it all winter. I bought it for $400 running on 2 1/2 cylinders, and couldn't keep it over 50mph, but with a nice tune up and oil change, it was doing donughts all night long and cruising at 85 with no problem. It eventually threw a rod through the oil pan when i tried to keep up with a bmw up a hill, it didn't like hills. I have my other stang with a 340-360 hp motor and some donor parts from the 2.3. Unfortunately this car is no hunk of metal, so I have to be nice to it. But this winter I will be buying another 2.3 and giving it to my brother to make a show car at the end of the winter (he wants to do a crazy system, dvd, ps2, and whatever else). long live 2.3l

    I love going in the mud and snow with that damn thing... I'm gonna put a traclok on it so I don't keep getting stuck though. Oh and don't try to take on tree stumps
