My advice is for you to get a beater Toyota or something, get through college, get a decent job, then go looking for a Mustang that will do what you are asking.  I have over 13K into my old 65 and I certainly would not take it to the track.  5K will buy you an old worn out beat up Mustang in the Fox body class, or a classic that needs a ton of work.

I beg to differ!

I got my ride for $3 grand. You just got to look in the right places. Stay out of the ricer scene. Guys look better in muscle than rice. You can get a nice GT for about $5,500. Older about 98 or so.

I'm sorry, I thought you were referring to a classic.  Yeah, you can pick up a 96-98 for that kind of money.  It has just about depreciated out, so would be a good bargain, especially now when the economy is so low and everybody is trying to sell.  98 has fixed hers up to where it is a decent car, so the possibilities are endless.
