I bought new mustang GT 1986, over 10 years before I lived in the bridge.

Awesome car.

I had an 85 Mustang GT and for a low HP car it wasn't too bad. A little slick in rain off the line and pretty sqqirrely first 3 years when you got on it when it was dry.

305 HO 190hp, 14.7sec 1/4 mile. Holy crap stand back.

The girls edition C5 Corvette has 345 hp. My 3.8 Buick has 205hp. The eighties was not a time for hp.

Late 80/early 90 was a good time for modding cars and lots of street racing.

Stock Grand national was not bad.

Aftermarket world for the 5.0 mustangs was crazy.

I owned a 86 hatch mustang in the 90's, really loved that car.

Would be nice to have a GN and a time machine to go back to the late 60"s early 70"s. They would laugh at a V6 till they could only see tailights

80s North American cars are best left in the 80s.... not too many I'd want today.

Although I agree with Stonedy...... an old GNX would be cool. 

Although I'm sure  Stevie deprived many a young lady of her unmentionables in his Fiero.

I had an 1988 5.0 mustang with the trunk and a 1990 5.0 hatch back. with my 88 stang I raced a grand national off the light, I took him at the start and was thinking to myself that I was the king... I had a good start, squaked it into second gear, could not see him beside me,  then at 80 kph he passed me like I was standing still and my heart dropped. :(

Those GN were fast but never really like the look.

I was beside  GN with some old coot and a young chick in the car. He was pointing at my car and getting a chuckle telling the chick how fast his car was. Well he was a little surprised when we both jumped on it and all he saw were taillights. I guess he didn't know that some people had work done to their cars. All he had to do was listen
