They are interesting enough, and I actually like the notch. At half that price, it would be a ok starting point.

I'm not sure they're cool, but I like them. It was a solid entry for the time. They did outsell the 5th gen S197 in half the time, too.

It is on my short list for the Challenge someday.

First one that I bought was a Mustang number two
Nobody kept 'em any longer than they kept a pair of shoes
They started showing up at every used car lot in town
A V-8 on a go-cart, easy terms, no money down

Me and daddy and my uncle took her home and we tore her down
Checked her out real good, cleaned her up and bored her out
Took out all the seats, pulled the carpet off the floor
Knocked out all the glass and we welded up the doors

Such kind responses here, so encouraging.


But in all seriousness, Bleh. No. They are so ugly. Ugly turds.

Guy a couple houses down from me has two. This guy which I dont think has left the garage yet this year:

Strangely this is the only pic that popped up on DuckDuckGo. Used to be a bunch, and someone on here said he knows of it from a magazine.  Amusingly this one was taken at the middle school up the street.

He also has a brown or orange one on some kind of foxbody wheels.

Definitely cool. But then again I like the Pinto and the Fairmont as well. 

If I could find a complete Monza with the V6 and the 5-speed for under $10k somewhere close to me, I'd probably buy it. Most of them were ripped up to be drag cars, the rest of them are titleless piles of rust and disappointment.
