These are your typical used Broncos with the usual defects--selling as is--the 1966 (the one in red primer) could be restored as the body is in fairly good shape--the 1970 (the light yellow one) could be restored but it would be from ground up--the 1972 (chassis only) has a 302 engine that ran good back five or six years ago--the body was in bad shape .(rusted) so I removed it thinking I would put the engine and drive train in the 1966 body but I just don't have the time or place for all the work--I do not have the title to the 66 but do have titles for the 70 &72--I also have a few extra parts that would go with them. I also researched the VIN numbers on all three Broncos to make sure that they are correct model years. All in all these Broncos would most likely be used for parts but with the right work could be restored--I am just getting to old and wore out to do this type of work anymore and just want to sell them to someone who will do something with them--I don't want to be one of those persons who say --Well now I am going to get around to a fixing them one of these days and ten years later their still setting in the same place only in a lot worse shape (LOL)
Earlier this month, rumors started to swirl 'round the web about the next-generation Ford SVT Mustang - the halo version of the all-new 2015 'Stang seen testing in the gallery above. Originally, we heard that the Shelby GT500 moniker would be dumped in favor of "a name you're familiar with," which some sources guessed could mean a return of the Cobra nameplate.
That might not be correct. According to Road & Track, citing a report from Mustangs Daily, the new range-topping Mustang will bring back the Shelby GT350 name - currently used on an aftermarket version of Ford's Pony produced by Shelby American (take a look at our recent Quick Spin of that car). Expect the new GT350 to be quite a bit different than the current GT500 - it will be all motor, using a V8 that's derived from the naturally aspirated 5.0-liter Coyote engine (though it will no doubt have a higher displacement). The GT350 will be a lot more powerful than the next Mustang GT, which is expected to offer something like 450 horsepower, but won't be quite as absurd as the 662-horsepower GT500 we currently enjoy.
The Shelby GT350 will reportedly bow with the rest of the new Mustang range at the 2014 New York Auto Show, which coincides exactly with the original Mustang's debut at the New York World's Fair in 1964. If that seems far out, don't worry, we'll be seeing the rest of the 2015 Mustang range before then, but Road & Track reports that the 2014 Detroit Auto Show stage will be reserved for the reveal of the next Ford F-150 pickup.

Subcompact sales slump, yet again
We're of the mind that each and every dyno should come with Murphy's Law painted in big, visible letters down the side. For every ten successful dyno runs out there, it seems there's one where events to horribly wrong. Take, for example, the video below. The clip shows what happens when a Ford Shelby GT500 and a mobile dyno have a bit of a disagreement at the Performance Expo 24 in Sherbrooke, Quebec. We won't spoil the results for you, but we will say there's some substantial carnage involved.
It's unclear just how much damage ensues from the dust up or whether anyone was harmed in the incident, but from the looks of things, everyone made it out without serious injury. If only we could say the same for the machines involved. Check out the video below.
