Seriously. Pinball. Mustang. Do we really need to say much more here? We’re not sure about the ADHD gamer generation which is up & coming (maybe already here in droves?), but it’s one thing old-school game players will enjoy; and the StangNet team is totally stoked to see something like this come out.
A Chicago-based group, Stern Pinball, is going to create a brand new Ford Mustang themed pinball machine for sale to distributors and individual buyers, alike. And this isn’t just some run-of-the-mill gaming machine hack job, here, folks–it’s the real deal, licensed by Ford and will give total credence to the 50th Anniversary of the Ford Mustang, covering elements of its legendary past…and its promising next generation of design & excitement.
Wanna see more? Keep going to check out the video and the Press Release…or you could get out (now!) to the Chicago Auto Show, beginning February 6th, 2014.
With a few more months to come before its total unleashing to the public, the 2015 Ford Mustang is already raising brows aplenty with the stormy debut just weeks ago. The totally redesigned 2015 Mustang is going to mark the 50th Anniversary of Ford’s poster child pony car, and there’s little doubt people will be lined up for order-taking within the next months…especially after tax time.
But until then, each of us can simply aspire to own one and live vicariously through the lucky few who get their paws onto one. One such lucky devil goes by the Jay Leno–maybe you’ve heard of him? Even though Jay doesn’t get to tool around the streets in the car, you still get a pretty in-depth look at the latest & greatest Mustang we’re all ramped up for.
Keep reading to check out the ~25 minute video spot for the 2015 Mustang and what Jay has to say about it.
This past weekend let us see the Need for Speed Ford Mustang in the limelight of the Ford EcoBoost 400 NASCAR event at Homestead, and we’ve got to say, they are “doing it right”. Piloted by one of the upcoming (March 2014) movie’s stars, Ramon Rodriguez, the Need for Speed Mustang made its public appearance decked out in police car trim, including some stunning silver paint, blue striping, roof mounted patrol lights, 22″ custom wheels, and let’s not forget…900 horses under the hood.
This next (video) chapter in the Ford Mustang 50th Anniversary story is definitely a cool one…and it’s from a true enthusiast from across the pond, as well as the Rhine. Take a moment to breeze through this video feature, and you’ll quickly see that Ralf Wurm is likely one of the biggest fans of the Mustang in Europe; and maybe the world. With over 30 years of exposure and daily 12-14 hour immersion with our favorite pony car, he’s definitely got a leg up on pretty much the 95th percentile when it comes to true fanaticism about the Mustang.
The video following shows just how deeply genuine Ralf’s passion truly is, how he helps others come to the hobby, and provides us with a peek at his favorite Mustang–a 1969 Shelby GT500 he’s personally restored in entirety.
In another documentary video release from Ford, in preparation for the 50th Anniversary of the Ford Mustang, we get another glimpse into the brain trust behind the sporting-up of the original pony car. The senior leadership (Lee Iacocca, et al) of Ford Motor Company put up the task to make something meager into a serious performance monster. And as you had better know already, it was Carroll Shelby and his team who were tapped to get the job done.
“Like one, you’d best like ’em all…”, my uncle used to always tell me when referring to the Ford Mustang attraction. Others will tend to disagree, but quite frankly, if you really are a fanatic about a car, guess what–you’re going to have to own up and take the (perceived) bad along with the good. And that’s just it; the Ford Mustang II is most commonly referred to as the bastard child of the Mustang’s long-standing good record…but if one steps back and examines the actual facts, it quickly becomes evident this little red-haired kid pretty much carried the Mustang moniker throughout some of the toughest times in American automobile history.
With the Ford Mustang 50th Anniversary inching its way closer as we creep into August, Ford has started to spark up the interest for the anticipated event with a new video series, aimed at sourcing the vast community of Mustang enthusiasts around the world.
The “Ford Mustang Countdown” campaign is a weekly online series which will feature video clips highlighting moments in the Mustang timeline, starting with the initial launch of the 1962 Ford Mustang 1 concept.
In the clip following, you get to see one such enthusiast, Zach King, put together a short film exhibiting two RC Mustangs in a model city chase scene. Pretty well done, at that, actually! Other clips are going to cover a great deal of Mustang legacy, so be sure to keep your eyes open for future video features.
The man behind the definitive literature of all things Ford Mustang (and especially the BOSS timeline), Donald Farr (Mustang Monthly editor), has been in the Ford limelight a lot recently, and he’s now featured in this CarsInContextTV video, putting in his two cents on the “state of the Mustang”, so to speak. The video might seem a little long at first, but if you can stick it out, it’s definitely worth it. It’s just cool to see spots like this where authors can finally come off the pages and put an audible voice to their opinions.
So, if you’re super bored at work or have a few minutes before shunting off to bed, give the video a view for some good, informal Mustang chatter.
Renderings, concepts, spy shots, and now even a small video of the 2015 Ford Mustang has seeped out from the 50th Anniversary cracks. This latest clip sounds off the low-end tones of what’s most likely the 5.0 Coyote we have come to know and love in today’s Mustang, and while we don’t get any high RPM revs or event a blip of spirit, we can say we’re plenty pleased with the throaty tone from what is highly speculated to be the 2015 Mustang to be. Follow the jump for the video.
