18. Ford Mustang GT 5.0
The rise in power of domestic cars during the ‘80s brought the first real performance vehicle to the Mustang range in almost 20 years. The Fox-body Mustang grew more powerful with each model year starting from 175 HP in the 1983 model. By the late 80s, the venerable 5.0-liter V8 engine was pumping 225 HP and 300 lb-ft of torque. This increase in power translated to very competent 0 to 60 mph times.
This car marked the return to its roots with a strong V8 engine and an exciting performance. Also, late 80s fox-body GT was so popular that they are somewhat plentiful today. That makes them a great choice for entry-level collectors. The best part of all is that the aftermarket for these cars is enormous, so you can affordably modify your fox-body GT to go even faster.
