Hotchkis Suspension to reenact McQueen Mustang chase

Well, here’s a little break from all the 50th Anniversary of the Ford Mustang hoopla…let’s talk about this year’s upcoming SEMA show in ‘Vegas.  This year’s show is going to be no exception from those past, with loads of aftermarket concepts pouring into the exhibition halls, inciting excitement & disgust all the same.  One cool happening to take note of this time around is a very slick reenactment.  No, not the Civil War kind, where participants get to nap for 4 hours while “playing dead”, but the type where a tribute to one of the greats is laid forth.

The folks at Hotchkis Sport Suspension are going to bring the one of the most renowned car chase scenes of all time to life for all to see.  That’s right, McQueen’s dream will be replayed once again, for all to see, firsthand.

Keep reading to get the full scoop in the Press Release which follows, as there’s much more going on there than this simple scene of awesomeness.

Ford Mustang and more to mark BBK 25th Anniversary

At one point or another, most every Ford Mustang owner has sought to slap on some aftermarket exhaust to get “just that right note” from the loud pedal.  While doing so, he or she likely considers a plethora of aftermarket  options from the old Jegs or Summit catalog…or some other preferred retailer.  To help mark off over 25 years of successfully supplying the Mustang fans (and of course, many others) with quality aftermarket exhaust products, BBK Performance is going to have an anniversary celebration which will include a car show, open house, prizes, food, and drinks for all those in attendance.

So, just when is this going down?  Later this month, everyone.  September 28th, from 10am-4pm, to be most precise.  Make sure to check out the Facebook Event in order to get socially plugged in, and keep tabs on all the developments for the celebration.

Ford Mustang to star in Need for Speed movie

We’ve all been there at some point…crouched over the QWERTY, with a gaming mouse or at the console with a controller or steering wheel in-hand; swerving, smoking tires, and avoiding pursuit in the virtual racing world.  The ‘Need for Speed’ series of games has captured audiences worldwide for nearly 20 years and isn’t about to leave any thrill untouched.  Know what’s even cooler?  A group of producers has teamed up and roped in the Ford Mustang for an actual movie based upon the video game series.  There’s no solid word on the title just yet, but you can safely bank it will somehow tie in the long-standing Need for Speed moniker in order to take advantage of the franchise’s successes.

The Ford Mustang in the movie is reported to be a 900hp variant, powered by the all-aluminum, 5.8-liter, supercharged V8…not too bad at all, considering America’s favorite pony car will be ripping the roadways with a healthy collection of global exotics and supercars, no doubt.  As for the timing of when we get to see it all–it’s presently pinned for March of next year, right along with the Mustang 50th Anniversary.  How convenient, right?

Cool?  Corny?  Meh?  Regardless of how you react, it’s going to be a cool sight to see, if at the least to say it’s the X-thousandth time you have spied a Ford Mustang in a production silver screen product…  Follow the jump for the video.

Eleanor Ford Mustang fetches a cool $1M

Given the fact that “Gone in 60 Seconds” wasn’t exactly the most thrilling of story lines, we all know quite well the flick made up for most of its lacking allure with plenty of automobile eye candy.  Domestics, exotics, customs, chops, and more all adorned the silver screen for audiences to take in, but no car seemed to capture everyone’s attention like “Eleanor”, a highly-modified 1967 Shelby GT500.  And if you do not know of the care we speak, well then, you need to turn in your Mustang keys right now…
