Video: Jay Lenos Book Club – Farr’s Mustang Boss 302

OK, Ford Mustang fans…if you haven’t gone out and picked up Donald Farr‘s latest literary installment, you are seriously missing out.  Why?  Jay Leno says so–that’s why.  Farr’s book, Ford Mustang Boss 302: From Racing Legend to Modern Muscle Car is a completely epic compendium of everything Boss 302.  Donald covers the historical past, ties in the omnipresence, and ultimately ties it all back into contemporary times, with the return of the Boss 302 in the 2012 Mustang.

The StangNet team had the fortunate chance to get project Built to Cruise to Tulsa last summer, and more importantly, we got the chance to sit down and have dinner with Donald, right as he was honored by noteworthy Ford folks at the Shelby banquet one evening.

OK, we’re done rambling (for now)–be sure to keep going for the video of Farr and Leno’s spotlight interview right in Leno’s garage!

Paul Brown takes the #50 BOSS 302S Ford Mustang to the top

All summer long, we kept Ford Mustang fans posted on the hot racing action Paul Brown has put down in the #50 2012 Mustang BOSS 302S racer and now, he’s got even more to be proud of.  Brown recently placed first in the 2011 Pirelli World Challenge Race, solidifying the GTS Championship title.  Just one more race remains in the 2011 season, but Brown has already matched honors with the legendary BOSS 302 racer, Parnelli Jones–if he gets one more “W” in his final race at Road Atlanta, he’ll get to scribe his name in the books of Ford Mustang racing legends.

Awesome. We saw Tiger Racing’s Mustang in action back in June at Hallett Motor Racing Circuit and seriously, it put a good hurting on the track.  Brown’s got some good mojo going behind the wheel of this 2012 BOSS 302S and we wish nothing but the best for him & Tiger Racing.
