WHEN THE CAR ARRIVED, THE FORD FACTORY CORRECT FIBERGLASS FRONT FENDERS, HOOD AND BOTH THE FRONT & REAR BUMPER'S  WERE ADDED.(STILL HAS THE METAL TRUNK LID)THE SPARE TIRE WAS REMOVED. THE DRIVE TRAIN WAS PULLED AND A REAL 60'S DRAG MOTOR WAS ORDERED. THEY CHOSE A HOLMAN/MOODY PREPPED FORD 406 C.I. BIG BLOCK V8 TOPPED OFF WITH 3X2 BARREL CARBS.. A 4 SPEED WAS INSTALLED ALONG WITH THE 4-LINK STYLE REAR SUSPENSION. THE CAR WAS MAINLY USED FOR DRAG RACING MOST OF ITS LIFE. IT WAS KEEPED IN A GARAGE.

2015 Ford Mustang GT Line-Lock Burnout

Mon, 03 Nov 2014 15:45:00 EST

In this brief Short Cut, Autoblog's Steven Ewing demonstrates Line-Lock on the 2015 Ford Mustang GT. Accessed through an on-screen performance menu, the feature temporarily locks the front brakes to help you heat up the rear tires for better traction, as you would for drag racing. The result? A 15-second smokescreen.

Project Ugly Horse: Part VI

Solid axle? What solid axle?
I was fully prepared to embark on a seven-day journey down a rabbit hole of broken bolts, internet hearsay and consternation.
This should not have gone this easily. Having a long and checkered history of simple projects punctuated by much wailing and gnashing of knuckles, I was fully prepared to embark on a seven-day journey down a rabbit hole of broken bolts, internet hearsay and consternation when I finally decided to lay hands on the '89 Mustang with the goal of relieving the car of its stock rear axle. Instead, it took less than a full morning's worth of work to carve the old 7.5-inch solid axle from its moorings and mock up something, well, different.

Ford spotted testing new Focus RS at the Nurburgring

Thu, 26 Jun 2014 14:28:00 EST

Ford is expected to be launching a revised version of the Focus ST soon, but the latest snapshots from our spy photographers at the Nürburgring suggest that the Blue Oval is already working on an even more potent example: the new Focus RS.
Though the partially disguised test mule is wearing an ST badge (along with a Dewey sticker that makes us wonder what adventures Huey and Louie are up to and what manner of duck-tail rear spoiler they may be wearing), there are several tell-tale signs that something else is afoot here. There's a larger front air dam, bigger brake calipers, dual exhaust tips (instead of the central exhaust on the ST) and a reshaped wing protruding from the trailing edge of the roof.
That may all be well and fine, but what's under the hood? We don't know yet for sure, but word has it that Ford is preparing to port over the 2.3-liter turbo four offered in the new Mustang, where it packs 305 horsepower and almost as much torque - potentially retuned to produce even more for the top-of-the-line Focus, which could channel it all to the front wheels like the last model or pack an all-wheel drive system. The Global C platform on which the Focus is based does, after all, also underpin AWD models like the Ford Escape and Lincoln MKC.
