Aside from their instantly recognizable boxy design, there are lots of reasons why Fox Body Mustangs are great cars to work on.

1. It's a Mustang!
Well, duh.

2. Wide Variety
Talkin' about there's four eyes, aero, SVO, turbos, 4 cyl, 6 cyl, 8 cyl, manual, auto, coupe, 'vert, and hatch...

3. Abundance of Parts
Probably the best reason here, along with:

4. Relatively Cheap
Unless you got something special off the bat...

5. Plenty of Torque
The v8s of course. Well, that SVO turbo wasn't terrible at that either.

6. (Fox)Body Style
This is just a weird reason, to me. Basically, it's not 'Mustang-y' enough. So Mustang II, except acceptable?

7. Turbo Version
4cyl of course. Yeah, dawg, that's a no from me. But you do you.

8. Possibility of Body Kits
See 3 above.

9. Great for Drifting
:weneedadriftingsmileyclosesticouldfigureonusinghe re-->:

10. Nostalgia
Ah yes, the wistful rememberance of days past. Definitely THE reason, not 3 and 4 above, my bad. Definitely not applicable to any other year Mustang or other makes and models, nosir.

Y'all're welcome as usual!
