I too have been tempted by the lure of newer cars, they get better mileage with good power and have nifty features. But I always eventually remember that it's alot nicer to drive something unique, do you think you would get all of the waves and thumbs-up if you were driving a 2002 RSX? On top of this it is possible to install all of the modern features on an old Ford (efi, 5-sp or automatic w/ overdrive, power windows, rack and pinion steering, just about anything you could imagine). Our board has members in all parts of north america (all parts of the the world actually) and are always eager to give advice, shop references or resources to anyone who puts a post up. If you want transportation get a new car, if you want an experience fix up your old Mustang.
