Ford Mustang to join the NASCAR scene

2010 Shelby GT500 Ford Mustang

We might best fit the description of  “moderate” NASCAR fans, as we’ve never been all that excited to see Fusions, Chargers, and Camrys circling the track for hundreds of miles these past few years.  That’s about to change.  The folks over at FOX Sports recently reported that Ford has plans to introduce the Ford Mustang into the Nationwide Racing Series next year.  The news comes now, a bit on the early side, because the new templates and designs are required to be submitted for approval on June 26th and the 2010 NASCAR competition is supposedly going to be very close to stock in the visual cues department…at least much closer than the aero-styled cars we’ve been accustomed to for almost ten years.  Dodge has stated they are going to have the Challenger designed and slated for the series as well.  General (Government) Motors?  They passed on producing a Camaro shell to race underneath and will stick with their current Impala setup, while Toyota will also follow the stale suit and stick with their Camry paneling.

Galpin Auto Sports Unwraps USAF “X-1″ Ford Mustang

Galpin Auto Sports USAF

Galpin Auto Sports and some select flyboys from the USAF have combined forces to show fans two seriously tech’d out cars. The Ford Mustang “X-1″ and the Dodge Challenger “VAPOR” are two new promotional products of this new found coalition force. With more gadgets inside of each than a high-schooler’s backpack, both of these eye-catchers are set to turn heads and rally allies wherever they cruise. The two cars will be part of the 2009 Super Car Tour – a new US Air Force recruiting concept that started about a month ago. The two “carcraft” will also span the entire country this year as part of a mobile marketing initiative designed to inform youth about the various career fields and opportunities within the USAF.  Keep reading to see the interiors of these cars–they are quite realistic!

2010 Ford Mustang tested by Consumer Reports

The Big 3 have been in the news plenty here lately, that’s for sure. Today, however, we aren’t going to focus on financial crises, bailouts, or Who’s on first. We’re here to talk comparison & contrast: specifically between the revamped Ford Mustang, the redesigned Chevrolet Camaro, and the reborn Dodge Challenger. 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 →

U-turn: back to the 45th Ford Mustang Anniversary

Ford Mustang 45th Anniversary celebration
2010 Classic Design Concepts front spoiler featured.

After this past whirlwind of a weekend, we have barely had enough time to sit down, reflect, and think about what just happened at the 45th Anniversary Celebration of the Ford Mustang in Birmingham.  Now, on a Monday afternoon, it’s all starting to soak in.  We ran into thousands of Mustang fans, hundreds of vendors, hung out at the CDC booth (assisted in some installations!), caught some sweet racing at Barber, and of course, caught a feast for the eyes (hot cars) as well as the belly (good, down-home cooking).  Most importantly, we were able to share about 95% of the 45th Mustang Anniversary LIVE with you, the Ford Mustang enthusiast community.  Between our twitter coverage and live video, we did our best to make sure fans were able to see what they wanted to, regardless of attending the celebration.
