I also lucked out, my Uncle bought my 1988 Mustang LX 5.0L HO brand new, and he never modded it, took extremely good care of it and drove it basically like an old man the entire time he owned it. (Which really makes no difference because the 5.0L is one of the toughest motors available).
Anyway needless to say my 88 is completely 100 % mint, never been in an accident my uncle was original owner, low mileage. But him being Mechanically illiterate he thought since the strong arms that hold up the hatch where not functioning anymore, that the entire car was falling apart.
So he sold it to me for $1000 dollars. Only 180,000KM so in american I think thats 105,000 miles not to shabby. 60 dollars for new strong arms and that car is practically brand new, I love it.
