Blind Man wins 2010 Ford Mustang Test Drive

Blind Man wins contest for Ford Mustang drive

When it comes to the Ford Mustang and its faithful fan following, there are always great stories and memories involved. We’ve seen the 2010 Mustang given away to one of our Armed Services personnel. We’ve seen some great video productions in a recent Ford video contest. We’ve witnessed firsthand how a Shelby GT500 changed the way people think about Mustang modification. There is one recent unique story we’d like to share at this point: how a blind man got the chance of a lifetime when he won a (spirited) test drive in a brand new 2010 Mustang convertible. Roger Keeney had always dreamed of driving a new Ford Mustang, but since being blinded in 1990, he hasn’t quite had the chance to do so, let alone drive any car. Continue Reading →

Sources Say Coyote is a Go

2010 Ford Mustang GT

By now, it’s no secret that millions of fans hope to see the recently updated Ford Mustang get a much-needed power plant upgrade in the near future.  Well, Mustang fans, we’ve got some interesting buzz for you.  Today, Ford of Australia’s Russell Christophers hinted that a new 5.0 liter V8 codenamed “Coyote” is currently in R&D in the US of A.  That’s right, the SEMA rumors seem to be heating up closer to the boiling point of truth, folks.  If this 5-oh comes to fruition, sources say the numbers tach in at 400hp and 400 lb-ft of torque from the DOHC motor.  So now, it’s not a question of “if” the Coyote will come to pass; it’s a question of “when”.  Many say 2011 or 2012.  Conjecture is welcome, as no one can say for certain, given the volatility the market (and aftermarket, for the matter) is experiencing.  Until we hear more, stay tuned…

Will Alan Mulally Take Ford to the Top?

Alan Mulally - Ford Motor Company

The “Big 3″ might be best known in today’s economic times as the “Busted 3″.  With Chrysler screaming S.O.S. and GM not far behind them in the race to the bottom, we Ford Mustang fans must focus our eyes on the one remaining contender in the ring: Ford Motor Company.  “Why?” you may ask.  Because of one man at the helm–Alan Mulally.  His leadership is what Ford needs now, more than ever, to pull out of the nose dive that is the biggest squeeze on the global automotive industry ever witnessed.  Focusing on what works, cutting out the bull, and always keeping everyone focused on a singular vision are just a few of the precepts this man propones.  We caught this very nicely written article over at CNN Money on Mr. Mulally and knew we had to share it with you.  Trust us: it’s well worth the time spent reading it.

Consumer Reports has compiled a comprehensive test on these three contenders and produced a video to share with us on the results. If a picture’s worth a thousand words, then this clip is worth…you get the idea. Grab some popcorn and a soda, because this one’s worth watching. Continue Reading →

Elliott set to Crack NASCAR Speed Record in an E-85 Ford Mustang

Ford FR500C Mustang

It’s not often records like this are broken. It’s been 22 years as a matter of fact. The current (aged) record for NASCAR top speed is placed at 212.089 mph, set by Bill Elliott at the Talladega Superspeedway in a 1987 Ford Thunderbird. This Wednesday (May 13, 2009) will mark the time in which this record will likely fall. The folks at Hajek Motorsports have tweaked and tuned a Ford Mustang FR500C to run on E-85 fuel to be the steed Bill pilots in this attempt. It should be an easy record to displace, given this Mustang has already been clocked at about 252 mph at the Salt Flats. Who knew green could be so fast!? Be sure to check out the dyno video and the official Press Release from Ford regarding this exciting event. Continue Reading →

1971 Ford Mustang with 619,284.5 miles and counting

Richard Fuchs in his 1971 Ford Mustang

No.  It isn’t a typo.  You are setting eyes upon a man and his faithful Ford Mustang–one that’s served him well for almost 40 years.  With the hopes of putting 400,000 miles on his pony car when he bought it brand new for $3,310, Richard Fuchs has more than broken his own record; he’s set the bar…quite high.  Fuchs is a crafty inventor by trade and a passionate hobbyist by method.  He holds several patents for his inventions and if you take a trip to visit the keen fellow, you’ll be sure to see plenty of eye-widening tinkerings.  Over the years in his 1971 Ford Mustang, Fuchs has sought to achieve what most muscle or pony car owners never care to: fuel economy.  By keeping his car clean, maintained, and caring for every minute detail, he’s been able to keep his Mustang efficient and mostly original over the last 38 years.  Hop over to the NY Times to get the full story…it’s one worth sharing.
