    So this 96 Gt. was bought at an auction by a local crappy used car dealer. They had no clue what they had got.
    Most were turned off seeing how it had no rear seats or radio, ac, driver seat back was broke, and paint wasn’t so nice.
    My son wanted to check it out and not wanting to I went with him.
    The 302 had a fresh build unsure of what was done internally.
    It was tuned and had headers with x exhaust and no cats along with a lot of new looking suspension work. Short shifter etc.
    She was fun and loud and was a cheap purchase.
    Biggest cost was gas and rubber. And my boy ended up with it a few yrs later anyway.
    He ended up daily driving it even in the winters. He’d start it up 20 below 0 and go no warm up at all.
    It got thrashed by both of us and just kept going!
    Inspection time got tuff so he ended up getting a wrx last year.

    Also a deer can be tied to any vehicle?
    Daughters friend came over to show me his and he had it tied to the back of his 2018 focus.

    I don’t put messy stuff in my taco.:anonymous:

    It was more like nasty!

    Just a side note I can’t ride in his wrx when he is aggressive.
    Makes me sick to stomach!
    Guess I’m getting old and like my 4 bangers.

    Yeah, decency is now a relic of a bygone day.

    I think cars like that are just highly impractical. The Tacoma gives you style, versatility, practicality, and utility. The only thing you get from the Mustang is style and speed, if I were to have a muscle car, I would want it to be something old. On top of all of those things, the Tacoma holds its value leaps and bounds better than the Mustang, and for good reason.

    Hard to pass up the retro-themed instrument panel tho.

    Too few to list.
    I've had both. Had the Mustang and truck for about two years. The mustang was fun but in the end the truck was just more practical to have.

    Taco!

    I have had 4 Mustangs when I was younger. The new ones are really nice but easy to drive then like an idiot. Taco is just my speed now and my toy car suits me just fine.

    This was perfectly broken down! And I'd definitely say so myself! Both would be ideal. But Tacoma is definitely taking the win here lol. (Tacoma website, who'd have known?! Lol)
