i don't think theres really a best

i like the 87-93's personally
if i were you i'd get a 91 or higher just for the fact that it has less wear and tear on it then a 82. The interior of my 93 is incredible. Only the drivers seat shows any wear at all. The older the car the worse little things like that get.

Now performance wise i think they are pretty much the same depending on what you plan to do with them. Stock i think 87 is the fastest cus the put little stuff on the later cars that decreased hp.

i would hold off on buying it that sounds like a stang with some probs...maybe just go look at it and just hold off and look at others because usually the cheaper the stangs are the more things are wrong with them, thats just from my experience. also if you dont know much about the fox body stangs i would take someone along with you who knows what to look for just so you dont make a mistake and throw 2Gs out the door.

and to find out how much horses it has go up to the link at the top of the page marked "info by year" and it will tell you there.

Well I looked at it today.And it had some rust and body work to be done.So im not buying it.So if anyone is selling one please contact me at bigbobreese@msn.com . off the topic what do you guys think of the cameros around 88 to 92.because I either get a stang or a camero

I own a 1987 IROC-Z 350 TPI. And I also own a 89' mustang lx 5.0 5 speed. I love both cars personally. They're both really fast and fun to drive. My camaro I don't drive much since it only has 49,000 original miles and is in pretty mint condition. The mustang has 89,000 miles and is in good shape still. I picked it up cheap because it needed a new driver door other than that it was beautiful. I replaced the driver door with another one of the same color and no one can tell the difference. I do have to say my camaro is faster than my stang I've run them against eachother before and my camaro did beat it out. The camaro has edelbrock TES headers,edelbrock catback,k&n filters,low temp thermostat,and random technologies cat. The mustang has a flowmaster exhaust system with flowtech H-pipes and a K&n filter. Personally i'd have to say that either car is a good choice just if you're going to buy a camaro get a 350 or else you'll never have a chance against a stang. And if you get a stang get a 5 speed there's nothing like rowing through the gears in a mustang.Either way I feel the best thing to do is buy american there is the big "camaro vs. mustang" war out there when it should be the american muscle vs. the imports who think they have something on the american muscle. When all they have are their 5 inch turbo "soup can" mufflers and engines that create about as much horsepower as a sit down lawnmower.I dunno...but that's just my personal opinion on it all.
