For sale is my 68 Mustang that I got December 24th 1992 prior to my entrance into the United States Marine Corps. I named her Natasha. When I got her she had a 302 w/289 heads Factory air conditioning, PS, and manual brakes. She was Cherry red with maroon interior. So I drove her for a few years like that. Natasha has been one of the Loves of my Life.

     So about 5 years ago I decided to start a full restoration. Since Natasha was starting to show her age. I pulled her into the Garage and proceeded to pull every her down too the bare shell. I took her to a Classic Paint and Body shop in Charlotte NC. They worked her over and sprayed her in Bright Inferno Red. Now keep in mind I wanted to Hot Rod her up, add some Flare, but I also wanted to preserve her original appeal. I did not want her to be a beast. I looked at a lot of things other guys had done.

Drivetrain. I decided that the 93 Cobra Power Plant was the ticket.  So I bought a 302 Crate Roller Engine for a 1993 Cobra with the GT40 Cobra Intake which has been Extreme Honed. This is an original 93 Cobra intake. These are very rare and highly sought after. This Mustang has a Custom built set of Long Tube Headers that actually fit the car without scraping everything you cross over, unlike the TriY's. They fit around the C4 Bell house like a glove. The transmission is a fully rebuilt C4 automatic with a brand new 2500 Stall. Trans shifts smoothly and not rough at all. I did have a shift kit installed. The exhaust runs straight back to a set of Flowmasters for that nice Growl. I decided on the electronics to go with the more tunable version, so I used the A9P. The rear gears are Factory 273's She does such a fine job cruising I figured why Fix what's not broken. Wheels I wanted to give Her an updated looking set of wheels so I bought a set of Chrome 17x8 OEM Ford Mach 1 wheels for her. Keeps her looking Classic, but puts a great spin on her looks. I just added Brand new KYB Shocks.

Interior. I did not want a solid color and I did not care for the OEM red's of the day. I looked at different colors and cars and decided to use TMI's 1966 Mustang Red with 1968 Black on the seats. I used 1968 Black Door panels. Red Head Liner. Black Dash with Red Paint. I also used Dyno mat in the entire interior space, which really knocked out the noise. For the Stereo system. I used a Kenwood KDC-MP238. It has Blu Tooth, and the AUX input to run your Pandora or Ipod. I used the Q-Forms kick panels for some added sound in the cabin. She has Kenwood 6 1/2's in front and 5x8's in the rear. Great sound . She is wired up to have an amp in the back if you wanted to add a subwoofer. I added Lokar Pedals. The brake pedal is not pictured, but I have it new in the wrapper. I also used New Black Carpet.

I also Powder coated all the door hinges, trunk hinges, hood hinges in Black. I wanted to avoid that trashy look and keep it looking good for years which it will.

2015 Mustang-based Saleen S302 to boast as much as 640 hp

Tue, 23 Sep 2014 13:57:00 EST

The Ford Mustang is obviously a famous performance vehicle in its own right, but it often works even better as a platform for the aftermarket to upgrade. With the all-new 2015 model just now hitting the scene, the famous tuners at Saleen are getting their improvements for the new pony car ready for the world. After recently teasing it, the specs for its fresh S302 model are officially here, along with a first look at it in profile.
Of course, the biggest question on everyone's mind is how much power the company can get from the Mustang's V8. With the 2015 V8 model rated at 435 horsepower and 400 pound-feet, Saleen expects to bump the Ford factory numbers slightly to 450 hp and 410 lb-ft in naturally aspirated form, or with the benefit of a supercharger, it will rocket the engine's output figures to 640 hp and 565 lb-ft. No matter which powerplant a buyer chooses, there are a wide variety of available final-drive ratios with a six-speed manual or automatic gearbox.
Available as either a coupe or convertible forms, Saleen will offer its S302 in three trim levels - White Label, Yellow Label and Black Label. The White Label is the only naturally aspirated one of the bunch, but it still benefits from upgrades like a new exhaust, limited-slip differential, improved suspension, heat extractor hood and rear wing.

New Ford Police Interceptor tech protects cops' backsides

Mon, 22 Jul 2013 10:29:00 EST

It was only a matter of time before law enforcement agencies would realize the potential of driver-assist technology for use in their Ford Police Interceptors, and, now that they have, those back-up cameras and radar systems won't be used just for parking, but for security, as well.
The surveillance mode system works when the camera or radar detects movement from behind the vehicle, and if it does when it's activated, an alarm will alert the officer inside the car, the driver's side window will roll up and the doors will lock, protecting the officer from an unwanted intrusion. The officer, of course, has the option to turn surveillance mode off, mainly in urban areas where pedestrians would constantly set the alarm off, and it can only be activated when the police car is in park.
Randy Freiburger, Ford's police and ambulance fleet supervisor, came up with the patent-pending idea when researching the needs of police officers and riding along with them, during which time he realized officers would be safer with an extra set of eyes watching the area behind their cars, especially at night or when they're completing paperwork, using the in-car computer or handling a radar gun. "Unfortunately, there are people with bad intentions who sneak up on police officers," he says.

Entry-level F-150 now offers SuperCrew, Sport Package

Thu, 29 Aug 2013 14:29:00 EST

Ford has made a few notable tweaks to the lower end of its F-150 lineup, giving customers a more affordable version of the four-door SuperCrew body style. The popular SuperCrew could previously only be had on XLT models and above, but Ford has announced that 2014 F-150s with the base STX trim can get the more versatile body.
The STX SuperCrew brings the price of a four-door F-150 down from $34,525 to $33,145. Like the XLT SuperCrew, the STX will be available with the choice of a 5.5- or 6.5-foot bed, while a 5.0-liter V8 can replace the base 3.7-liter V6 for $4,425. Ford has not released pricing on the different bed lengths yet, but opting for the 6.5-foot bed on the XLT raises the price $1,240 and forces buyers into the 5.0-liter V8. We'd expect a similar arrangement on the STX.
The other big news for fans of affordable pickups is the addition of an STX Sport Package on the base-level truck. It adds 20-inch wheels, black exterior accents, black-and-gray cloth seats and decals on the truck's box. The Sport Package is available on all three of the STX's body styles, with Ford listing the price as $980 with current discounts.
