I'd say that's an over-generalization. Even those old Fox Body's were capable of low 14's stock (possibly better) if you got the right year and trim. BTW, where'd you run your 14.7? Bradenton? BTW, nice kill on the 5.0... at least he wasn't a jerk.

It's rare to find a 302 Mustang stock anymore. I was out watching some street races last night and there were old ass 302's lifting the front end off the ground and claiming to run 11's. They're not as dominant at highyway speeds but just might give you a run for your money. Nice kill though.

yeah alot of 5.0's are really tired now .... low 14's stock is not really possible on a "Stock" mustang 5.0, best year was 89, maybe a 14.7 stock with a good driver and teh 5speed, now if you threw some good sticky tires on there, it would go down to 14, possibly even into the 13's. do a modern HCI, exhaust swap on it, and you'll be down to low 12's. God those cars are insane, shame i never had the money to modify mine. (the cylinder heads i wanted for it are 1250 USD.)

There are some mean Mustangs around here... You can usually see the ones that are fast, they still look good. The ones that look like shit, generally run like shit too. I keep finding the same guy, I think, behind me at this same intersection once or twice a week. He always turns into the gas station right after the turn, and I'm usally going straight. His exhust note makes my car shudder from behind me, car looks stock from every angle I've seen it at, and has a HUGE tach on the dash. I'd guess it's a late 80's, possible early 90's. Not the hatchback, not the GT. Black, like all the LXs... ;)

Sorry. Bone stock 1987 to 1989 Mustang's ran 13.9 to 14.1 in the 1/4.
With $1,500 in Mods low 12sec 1/4 miles were possible.

Are you talking about the LX 5.0 coupe?? MMMMM those are my fav i think. Such a sleeper look and they were the fastes in stock trim. Couldnt handle as well as a GT but weighed less since they were coupe and didnt have all the GT molding. They made hatchback LX 5.0 too but the coupe is so awesome. ID love to have a plain black one and do nothing visual wise to it, just dump money in performance. So hard to find a good one in good condition tho.

I forgot there were two LX models... I'm not sure what this one is... I never get a good look at the back. Hes always right behind me... In FL, I used to see alot of the hatches at the strip.

I live near Detroit and you should see some of these 5.0's around here. It's sick.

HAHAHA, like posted earlier the fastest stock foxbody was the late 80s LX 5.0 which with a perfect run could get into the high 14s and thats a fact.
