2001 Mustang GT with automatic transmission that’s been upgraded visually with many 2001 Bullitt, 2003 Mach 1 and 2001-2004 Cobra styling cues and many performance upgrades. I’m selling this car for a good friend, who’s owned it for the last five years. I know this car extremely well because I was its previous owner. Between the both of us, there’s over 30K invested into it. My friend named it The SuperCobraBullStang 1, who is a certified Ford mechanic and the most talented mechanic I know. He did all the mechanical changes why I owned the car, and of course has done all of the work since owning it. It’s a 48,800 mile adult owned GT equipped with every option available in 2001. This car is in near new condition, inside and out. It has been meticulously maintained, both mechanically and cosmetically. Interior upgrades include: leather 2003 Mach 1 seats, the 2003 Mustang complete Interior Upgrade Package (silver center dash and console bezels, shifter trim rings, 4 way headrests, upgraded pedal covers and aluminum lock posts), MGW satin finish aluminum heater control knobs and deluxe parking brake handle, a touchscreen stereo mated to the Mach 460 system and a MRT Interceptor instrument cluster and Autometer gauges. Outside upgrades include: 18” Chrome Foose Nitros wheels, 01 factory Cobra front bumper cover with a factory Mach 1 chin spoiler, Bullitt rear quarter glass and C pillar trim, factory 04 Cobra rocker covers, 04 Cobra folding side mirrors, a factory Mach 1 hood with the Shaker hood scoop, a painted engine compartment with RedLine hood struts, a Cervinis rear spoiler, tinted tail lights and center mount brake light with LED sequential turn signals and a keyless entry keypad. Now for the performance upgrades. The suspension and brakes have all been updated, starting with a complete 04 Cobra Independent Rear Suspension with a 3:55 ring and pinion, complete 01 Bullitt brakes, front and back with new Hawk brake pads and powder coated centric front and rear rotors, Tokico DSpec adjustable struts and shocks, an 01 Bullitt front sway bar, Maximum Motorsports caster/camber plates, Eibach lowering springs and Steeda full length frame connectors. Now for the go fast parts. The engine has been upgraded with a 2.1 litre Kenne Bell roots mammoth supercharger that can produce up to 1,000 HP. It makes 9 lbs of boost, which according to Kenne Bell should be making 400 rwhp. Other upgrades include the Kenne Bell upgraded intake with 75 mm throttle body, 42 lb fuel injectors and MSD coil packs. The engine also has a set of custom aluminum cam covers. The transmission has been upgraded with a Level 10 billet torque convertor, a Level 10 performance valve body and a LPW aluminum deep transmission pan. The exhaust is a Magnaflow high flow stainless steel h pipe with cats and a Mangaflow stainless steel catback system. With all of the performance upgrades, this car has never been beat or raced. It is extremely fast and an absolute blast to drive. It handles like it’s on rails and stops on a dime. It’s truly a one of a kind car and probably one of the nicest 2001 Mustang GTs in existence.

Generally, cars get bigger and heavier as they get older. That's why it looks so ridiculous when you park a classic Mini next to a modern version. The same can be said of the Corvette, the BMW 3 Series, Porsche 911 and, of course, the Ford Taurus. In the Taurus' case, though, that size has become a liability, particularly because the big brute isn't nearly as sizable on the inside as it is on the out.
For 2016, Ford is aiming to rectify that. According to Edmunds, the 2016 Taurus will ride on a stretched and widened Ford Fusion platform. Ford is expecting this move to go a long way in trimming the Taurus' ample body fat.
"The problem with today's Taurus is that it is overweight and even the high performance SHO is not really competitive," said a source that spoke to Edmunds on condition of anonymity. The 365-horsepower SHO variant, "actually weighs about as much as the stretched Audi A8 L. Of course, Audi uses an extensive amount of aluminum, but it is a much bigger car."
The Russian auto market, in decline for the past year and further hit by the declining value of the ruble and recent sanctions over its annexation of Crimea, has forced Ford to cut jobs and shifts at two of its joint venture plants there. Around 700 of the 2,700 total workers who build the Russian-market Focus and Mondeo will be cut at the plant in Vsevolozhsk, near St. Petersburg as it drops to a single production shift. A second plant about 700 miles away in Yelabuga, in the Tartarstan region, will lose 250 workers. That plant builds seven vehicles, including the Explorer, Kuga and Edge.
The Moscow Times says Ford has been especially hit by the market decline, the overall market losing 5.5 percent in 2013 compared to the year before, but Ford sales dropping 18 percent in 2013 year-on-year. This year isn't going any better, with The Blue Oval posting a 21-percent decline through the first two months of 2014. That's why, though the Yelabuga plant builds the CUVs that customers are moving into, even it is facing cuts.
The job cuts in Vsevolozhsk come on top four-week plant shutdown planned so that the paint and body shops can go to one shift. In a statement, the company said, "Ford Sollers remains absolutely committed to the Russian market and is confident it has the right product plan, people and assets to deliver long-term profitable growth."
As Ford continues its cheerleading effort to help bring the 2014 Summer X Games to its hometown of Detroit, MI, it has released footage of its 2014 Fiesta ST Rallycross car on location at some of the city's well-known landmarks. This video appears to have been shot around the same time as the previous X Games Detroit video was made, but it focuses 100-percent on rally car action.
With Ford Racing driver Andreas Eriksson behind the wheel, this Fiesta ST lays down some serious rubber atop Detroit's Cobo Hall parking structure, at Belle Isle and around the Michigan Central Depot. Detroit isn't alone in the bid for a three-year X Games contract as Chicago, Austin and Charlotte are also hoping to play host. The winning host city is expected to be announced this summer.
