This 1965 Custom Ford Mustang Convertible is a “One Car Parade”! She’s beautiful, she’s loud, and
there’s not another one like her. She has been displayed at car shows all over the country and has received many
awards. She was showcased at two Good Guys shows in 2017 and was awarded with an "Award of Excellence" at both.
This baby was built by our company, GT Graphics and Customs, Inc. to showcase our company’s ability to create a
gorgeous one of a kind. After every panel, nut, and bolt was sandblasted, a rotisserie restoration was performed
with an abundant amount of customization. Its lines were sharpened, every gap was perfected, many modifications
were made, and the custom paint work contains an abundant amount of pearl and flake. It is meant to be seen and
Here are the Specs:
This Mustang has a custom built 302 Engine built by Dan Cansler Racing Engines in Sylva, North Carolina. Dan has
been in the business of building engines for decades. He is well-known in the professional racing industry. Along
with the engine is a 600 Holly Carburetor, an Edelbrock Aluminum Intake, an MSD Billet Distributor, polished valve
covers and wrapped long tube headers, an aluminum four core radiator, a chrome master cylinder and chrome brake
booster, all enclosed in the clean, custom painted and modified engine bay. An airbrushed cobra is painted under
the hood and the Mustang To Fear hinges prop up the hood nicely to reveal the customizations. The long tube
headers are attached to two stainless steel 2 ˝” side exhaust system that help provide the nice, choppy rumble.
At the bottom of this Mustang, a freshly restored undercarriage is coated with Raptor Liner that is tinted to match
the body color. This Liner was applied to not only the undercarriage, but inside the wheel wells, inside the
fenders, quarter panels, trunk, and inside the floor pan for that added protection against rust and sound deadening
purposes. There is a C4 Automatic Monster Transmission Built for 500 HP, a 2300-2500 Stall Torque Converter, a

Ford hybrids getting update to improve fuel economy

Tue, 16 Jul 2013 20:00:00 EST

Ford has announced that it is introducing "calibration updates designed to improve on-road fuel economy for owners of the 2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid, 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid and 2013 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid."
We can speculate that these changes are at least due in part to lawsuits over mileage claims of hybrid vehicles. The automaker is enhancing 2013 models starting in August by raising their electric cruising speed to 85 miles per hour from 62 mph, optimizing the use of active grille shutters and the climate control system, shortening the engine warm-up period by 50 percent and reducing electric fan speed to minimize the fan's energy consumption.
It bears mentioning that Ford is doing pretty well in the US electrified vehicle market this year. The company claims to have grown its share in the segment by 12 points to 16 percent while taking a high number of Toyota Prius trade-ins in the process. Conversely, Toyota has experienced a five-percent drop in new-Prius sales over the same period. Additionally, Ford states that it has increased its share of the US vehicle market by one percent this year, more than any full-line automaker.

Porsche 911 Turbo and Nissan GT-R Nismo star in World's Greatest Drag Race 4

Fri, 26 Sep 2014 17:01:00 EST

We love Motor Trend's annual World's Greatest Drag Race video. Now back for its fourth appearance, the idea of lining some of the world's fastest cars up for a ten-wide, straight-line, full-throttle run is, well... it's pretty freaking badass.
The lineup this year boasts some impressively fast cars to be sure. The group of ten includes the following darlings: Alfa Romeo 4C, BMW i8, BMW M4, Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Ford Fiesta ST, Jaguar F-Type R Coupe, Nissan GT-R Nismo, Porsche 911 Turbo S, Subaru WRX STI and, last but not least, the Volkswagen GTI. Give us any one of those for the weekend, and we're happy to take the keys.
It must be said though, that for a publication that draws as much water as Motor Trend does, there are some big cars that we might expect to be here instead. The Lamborghini Huracán or Ferrari 458 Speciale would have added some exotic flare to the list, and the omissions of the Chevy Corvette Stingray (for the second year in a row) and the Dodge Challenger Hellcat are real head-scratchers.

Edmunds ranks the best used cars for 2013

Sun, 15 Sep 2013 16:35:00 EST

When people ask us what car we would recommend for them, it's usually not easy to answer. To make a useful recommendation we must consider which of the numerous vehicle segments fits their needs best, and then choose one of the many vehicles offered in each segment. For some people, new cars don't meet their expectations of value, because they lose so much of it the moment they are purchased and driven off the dealer lot. For them, there's always the used-car market, where great deals can be found, but cars' histories of reliability and maintenance records - and perhaps that Certified Pre-Owned warranty - become ever-important factors playing into purchase choice.
To help out, Edmunds has done us the favor of assembling a list of the best used vehicles money can buy, covering model years 2006-2011, according to what it considers the most important criteria when shopping for used autos: reliability, safety, value and availability. That means unreliable, unsafe, super-expensive or limited-edition models don't appear on the list, but instead cars from each segment that are more likely to satisfy the general population.
There are some real goodies on the list, including but not limited to vehicles such as the capable Honda Fit, the cultish Honda Accord coupe (which can be had with a 240-horsepower V6 and a six-speed manual transmission some years), and the powerful Chevrolet Corvette. While Edmunds' choice of the Volvo C70 for best used convertible baffled us at first (not that it's a bad car), it redeemed itself by stating that the Mazda MX-5 still is an unofficial top choice if you don't require more than two seats.
