There’s perhaps no finer way to shed some disposable income than by dropping it on a cheap, rubbish jalopy. Sure, you could deposit said money into a Roth IRA and watch it accumulate over the years, confident that you’ll have the necessary funds to survive awhile post retirement, but no retirement account can get the blood pumping quite like a good ole piston engine.

Enter this SN-95 Ford Mustang GT convertible, purchased for the princely sum of $1,000. Matt Farah drove the car in the latest episode of The Smoking Tire‘s “One Take” series, coming away surprised by just how decent a driver the car was despite its obvious dilapidated state.

From 1996, all the way through the end of production, the SN-95 (fourth-generation) Ford Mustang GT was powered by a SOHC Modular V8 displacing 4.6 liters, paired to either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic. This particular Mustang GTĀ features the former transmission option, plus cut springs and a removed exhaust.
