1966 Ford Mustang 289c on 2040-cars
Houston, Texas, United States
You are looking at my 1966 Ford Mustang 289c. If you know anything about old school classic cars these are amongst
the favorites. Not only does this car boast a powerful 289c v8 engine, but the automatic transmission shifts good
as new. This car has been through a moderate restoration and was driven quite regularly. The overall mechanics of
the vehicle are very solid with the engine firing up with very little effort. The car has been my pride and joy
over the years, but unfortunately does not get driven as much as I would like. My plans were to hang onto it for
its 50th year anniversary but hopefully its new owner will get to enjoy this beauty. The car has been garage kept
over the years and has not seen any rain. The car has upgraded mufflers and gives that old school grumble found in
a muscle car. Convertible top is in mint condition with no rips or tears of any sort. The interior is super clean
with black leather buckets that have no tears. This car truly is a head turner and gets many compliments every time
that it is taken out. The car has some minor imperfections here and there but overall the vehicle will treat you well
for many years to come!

The Ford F-150 SVT Raptor is a very capable truck right out of the box, but "capable" has never translated into "invincible." Just ask the owner of the machine in this video. In it, the driver gets frisky with an aggressive jump with plenty of speed on his hands. The result is enough air to make Vaughn Gittin Jr. blush. As always, it's not the launch that's painful, but the re-entry. Gravity eventually asserts its dominance over the $43,630 pickup in a big way, and when it comes crashing down, it does so with a vengeance.
The impact was hard enough to set off both the alarm and multiple airbags inside the cabin. It's unclear if anyone was injured in the stunt, but we certainly wouldn't be surprised to hear that was the case. You can check out the stunt in the video below, and remember, when in doubt, back out of the throttle. Be warned, there may be some explicit/NSFW language in the clip.
UPDATE: Second video added with an even better look at the jump added below.
Back in October, there were reports that General Motors and Ford Motor Company were hard at work co-developing new nine- and ten-speed automatic transmissions, and now both automakers have confirmed this joint operation. While there are no specific vehicles mentioned to receive either transmission, a collaborative press release issued by GM and Ford mention that the transmission will be designed for front- and rear-wheel-drive cars, crossovers, trucks and SUVs.
These aren't the first powertrain components developed jointly between these cross-town rivals, either. The six-speed automatic currently used in vehicles like the Ford Edge, Ford Fusion, Chevrolet Cruze and Chevrolet Equinox was engineered in a similar fashion. As is the case with this existing transmission, both automakers will assist in the design, development and testing of the new transmissions, but each will build its own units in its own factories. Scroll down for the official press release.
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.
