Mustang...Good Drift Car?

Title says it all.. I'm thinking of getting into drifting not like professional but around where I live. I have heard that the mustang is a nice beginner's choice, I just wanted to get some other views...I want to get a car that if i crash the parts are easily available to get, and that work good for drifting.. that is really it thanks.

Mustangs and Camaros are both really good drift cars.

Don't smash up a perfectly good mustang, because that's what will happen...240SX's are known for being goo drift cars, go smash one of them all to hell.

I say start with an S14 or S13 as drift parts for them are easy to find and if you go with an S13 the cars itself is real cheap.

They dont have the power liek the mustangs do but they arent hard to drift with, bone stock. I had some cool videos were we stole a friends S14 automatic and went drifting. No ebrake, and no power, just skill.

It was fun.

An El Camino with a 350 would make a spectacular drift car. There's no weight to keep the rear wheels from sliding.

You can seriously drift anything, I think skill comes before the car type. Make sure you can actually drive otherwise youll be dissapointed no matter what you get.

I still think a 240, my buddy had never drifted before and he was in one and I just gave him a few pointers and on hi next try he was doing nice long drifts. It was really easy, even without a ton of horsepower
