I like the 96-97's the best.But I'm biased I own a 97.But then again I've had them all.I've had one of every body style from 85 up.So I guess I'm not biased,just prefer the 96-97's.Oh well I've had too many I know that.Lol. Jim
I like the smoothness of the 94/95's. The bumers are smooth, they don't have that molding built into them like the 96/7's. Also, hte 4/5 has much less molding on the side, much better look IMO. Also like the more shapely taillights of the newer cars compared to the flat connected taillights of the early cars. The 96/97's did have the nicer door handles though.
i picked the 96-97. i've had a 90 bird and a 93 bird and loved them both but i've always wanted a 96-97 and was finally able to get a 97 a few months ago. the 96-97's just have a sleeker more agressive look in my opinion. if i had to rate them it would go 96-97 is best looking then 89-93 then 94-95. i like 94-95 cougars but the 94-95 birds have a wierd looking fron end. just my opinion.
I voted 89-93, i think the 89-93 sc's look the best of all mn-12's, but if it was normal birds i woudl say the 94-95. The 94-95's also have the best interior in my opion too. My familys had, 2 92'sports*still have one forsale*, my pair of 91' SC's, a 95 4.6, and a 97 4.6, all birds. I like the 89-95 cougars about the same, I think the 96-7's are kinda ugly but I dont like chrome or anything so no offense to anyone. Justin
