Ben Henderson - 1988 Mustang 5.0 LX Convertible
This is my 1988 5.0L LX Convertible 5 speed I picked up last February. It is my second LX convertible and I am never selling it! I sold my first one to my neighbor (see my Yellow '90) and regretted that decision everyday as I saw her parked in another man's parking space. I told myself if I got another one, I would never let it go.
This car is bone stock down to the factory cassette deck which still works. I just use a cassette adapter for my iPod. Everything else works on it as well.
After being laid off of a great paying job due to the poor economy and eventually having my "new" car repossessed, I had finally saved enough money to buy some basic transportation. One day after work with $2,000 in my pocket I caught the bus down to the area in my neighborhood where there are several Used Car Lots hoping to pick up something decent. At the first lot I visited, sitting dirty and neglected was this beautiful car. It had been sitting there for 5 months unsold.
What a find for me. I was hoping just to get something... anything to get me around. Never did I expect to find something this great. The first pic is the day after I bought it. I think if the Used Car Lot owner would have put a little elbow grease into it, it would have sold a lot sooner.... lucky for me!
