In just a couple of months, the Stangs of South Florida will be hosting a charity event called The Patriot Run.  The goal behind this gathering of Ford Mustang fans is to pay tribute to the victims of 9/11 as well as fallen heroes from the Armed Forces.  Proceeds resulting from the charity will be directed entirely For The Fallen (www.forthefallen.org).  Nearly 200 Mustangs are planned to parade from Davie, FL to Islamorada in the Floria Keys under police and fire department escort.  Every car will be issued an American flag and a printed name & profile of a 9/11 victim to carry along throughout the event.  Steeda Autosports, as well as many local vendors, will be sponsoring the event, offering prizes, and contributing to a raffle.  The final destination for the Patriot Run is Holiday Isle in Islamorada, where there will be a car show, the raffle, and an honorary tribute to the Fallen.

Ford Unwraps AV-X10 “Dearborn Doll” for EAA Auction

2010_Mustang_AV-X10_intro

After seeing just how successful the last Experimental Aircraft Association  auction of the Ford Mustang AV8R was, the powers-that-be decided it best to bring about another pony car spin-off to the block for this year’s gathering. Oshkosh is the scene for the auction of the 2010 Mustang AV-X10 which is treated to a star-and-bar glass roof, GT500 wheels, spoiler, and lower rear fascia, as well as some World War II inspired lacquer. With orange trim on the nose and tail, a snow white AV-X10 tail stripe, and an official “Dearborn Doll” fuselage pinup, the AV-X10 is in no doubt a great continuation of respect and honor to the US Armed Forces, just as the Roush P-51B was. Aside from the decor and paint, the AV-X10 is also packed with plenty of punch to compliment its patriotic appearance. The based 4.6-liter V8 has been nudged upward by the Ford Racing Performance Parts 550 horsepower supercharger kit, a tuned FR500S exhaust setup, and is equipped with the FRPP Handling Pack. On the inside, a few nice touches help the pilot keep the pony on the road [course]. A short-throw shifter, an aircraft-themed instrument cluster, seats done up in bomber-jacket leather, and aluminum dash trim all give this 2010 Mustang AV-X10 the official USAF feel from times past.  So how do we bring this glory of the past to the present? Couple up this nostalgic glory and decor with a push-start button from today and the cash you’ve been saving since the past.
