It's been 50 years since Ford built the world-renowned 1965 Mustang and placed it high above Manhattan on the 86th floor of the Empire State Building. Last night, Ford came back with a bigger, yellower, all around more complicated car from 2015 and decided to recreate the famous stunt as a 50-year homageonly this time, they did it in the snow and over the course of just 5 hours.

Ugh; it’s that “Mustang” that resembles the Ford Fusion too closely. They had a winner in the previous model that resembled the original; something tells me this will be their next Mustang II.
We live in a world where they put ~four~ doors on a Hemi Charger.
Why not 3D-print it?
Well, that’s Chrysler for you. They also renamed the Dodge Omni 024 as the Charger when they put the turbo four from the Daytona in there.
The Challenger and Cuda look good.
Wonder how long Fiat will let those go unaltered for.
Please don’t tell me Fiat makes them.
Fiat owns the whole shebang right now, so the destiny of those models is strictly up to that company.
1970 Hemi Charger (one of 13)
And another one
And a 1970 Baccaruda. (I actually rode shotgun in one of these, back then.)
And the Mustang Mach 1
Though there may have been a 302 4-spd Mustang II, it was still the Pinto-Mustang. The Falcon-Mustang was much better.
The Falcon-Mustang was the original. And the four-barrel 289 was way better on horsepower than any 302 (140 hp) that the Pinto-Mustang had (the one to own was the solid-lifter 289 with 271 horses).
Oh, wait, they DID have one of those:
No manual though ;-(.
OMG...that is my dream ride...in black.
A Hemi Hearse full of Dobes.
What is best in life?
We just saw some little import that had slap shift on the wheel...and it worked.
I'm more into an arrest me red or darker reds.
It's the commie in me...
Whoa, THAT sounds like some fun.
If some is good, more is better....
