  • Ohio Ford Dealer, Selling 727HP Roush Mustangs for $39,995, Tells Hellcat to Step Outside

    The Truth About Cars ^ | May 9, 2016 | Chris Tonn
    Is the 707 horsepower Dodge Hellcat too weak for you? Do you miss the 662 hp Shelby GT500? Do you love the sensual whine of a supercharger pulley? Well, a Ford dealer in Ohio has the car for you. Lebanon Ford of suburban Cincinnati is a Roush Performance dealer, and has decided to offer the base 2016 Mustang GT with a Roush Stage 2 supercharger for under $40,000. This undercuts the Challenger Hellcat by nearly $25k, meaning you could pick up a new Fiesta ST with the difference, or perhaps a few sets of tires. You’ll need them.

    A Second World War fighter plane due to take part in a Tuskegee Airmen tribute flight has been badly damaged after crashing in Texas. The P-51 Mustang, used by the U.S. Air Force to escort bombers on sorties over Europe, made a belly landing - without landing gear - at Dallas Executive Airport this morning. While pilot Bill Shepard is believed to have escaped the crash unharmed, the plane sustained 'substantial' damage - including the loss of its propeller.

    The pilot of a World War II-era P-51C Mustang is OK after making an emergency belly landing at Dallas Executive Airport Wednesday morning. Dallas-Fire Rescue confirms the plane landed at about 10:30 a.m. with its gears retracted. The fighter plane's prop detached as it left the runway and came to rest in a grassy area off a taxiway. The plane is a single-seat aircraft with room only for a pilot. No injuries were reported, though the vintage aircraft suffered extensive damage, officials said. Lynn Lunsford, with the Federal Aviation Administration, said the aircraft belongs to a local flying museum. FAA...

    (snip) Ford claims the GT350R is faster than the Z/28 at every racetrack it has tested; it even brought an independent professional driver to Grattan raceway to compare the Ford, the Chevy, and the Porsche 911 GT3. According to Ford, the GT350R was one whole second faster than the Z/28, while matching the time of the 911 GT3 (Ford also claims the GT350R boasts twice the downforce of a GT3). If you told me this a few months back I’d have scoffed: “No way,” I’d say,

    The last dogfights between piston-engine, propeller-driven airplanes weren’t fought in the skies over Germany in the 1940s or even Korea in the 1950s. They occurred in Central America in 1969, and all of the combatants were flying U.S.-built Corsairs and Mustangs. The dogfights were among the final acts in a brief but bloody four-day conflict between Honduras and El Salvador, commonly (but misleadingly) known as the Football War. Although a pair of soccer games between the two nations sparked the initial riots, the war was the culmination of longstanding tension over immigration and land reform. Honduras boasted the more impressive...

    Vice President Biden might not be the only “car junkie” in the West Wing. A trip to a Ford factory outside of Detroit on Wednesday left President Obama drooling over the latest model of the auto manufacturer’s iconic Mustang sports car. While touring the factory, Obama inspected versions of the company’s F-150 pick-up truck and the Focus, a compact sedan that has seen sales spike in recent years. But it was a cherry red Mustang that drew the most attention from Obama, who declared that he needed to get into the car. “This is an American car, right here, this...

They even shared the same birthday, said Alsip, who was born in 1967. She bought the car for $800 at the age of 17, with a little help from her dad who has since passed away. But about a year after she bought the car, it was stolen from outside her apartment complex in Salinas. Before she had the chance to install her personalized license plates — “LYNDA 67” — it was gone. “I never thought...

    An Oklahoma school district is reportedly walking back plans to begin offering students an elective course on the Bible after facing pressure from a major atheist group. The class, called “The Book: The Bible’s History, Narrative and Impact,” was developed, in part, by Hobby Lobby president Steve Green, and it was set to launch in Mustang Public Schools, Raw Story reported. The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) said on its website Tuesday that the district canceled the class after Hobby Lobby allegedly did not provide the district with the final curriculum for approval and did not “commit to providing legal...

    When it comes to horsepower, is there ever such a thing as too much? When Gary Weckesser was building an exhibition funny car in 1969, he likely asked himself that same question, arriving at an answer of “no.” Not content to power his tube-frame, fiberglass-bodied Mustang with a single Windsor V-8, Weckesser opted to stuff four of them in front of the windshield, creating the appropriately named, four-wheel drive Mustang Mach IV. In honor of the Mustang’s 50th anniversary, this car highlights a new Petersen Museum exhibit entitled Mustangs Forever: 50 Years of a Legend. In fairness, Weckesser wasn’t...

    Oklahoma recently saw the destructive power of an EF5 tornado, but in the aftermath of the devastation, we've also been witness to the incredible resilience of the human spirit. Moore, OK resident Jack Haden survived the storm but found that his 2003 Ford Mustang wasn't quite as lucky. As you can see in the image above, the tornado's 200+ mph winds did quite a number on the car, but while most people would have likely called their insurance company and scrapped the car, Haden had other plans. After finding the car and seeing that its V6 still fired up, Haden...

    The greening of a classic car makes it unrecognizable to drivers. The Ford Motor Company is giving its Mustang a unique 50th birthday present: death. Detroit will still market an automobile called the Mustang. It just won't bear much of a resemblance to the iconic roadster driven by the likes of Lt. Frank Bullitt and James Bond. Ford's new "Evos" concept features gull-wing doors, a rounded, aerodynamic body, and a smaller design clearly inspired by Europe. When Ford officially unveils its new Mustang in 2014, company insiders insist it will embrace this visual transformation. More pertinent than its changing look...

The 2013 Shelby GT500 will come packing a 650 hp supercharged engine that Ford says is the most powerful production V8 in the world. The 5.8-liter mill sends its 600 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels via a carbon fiber driveshaft.

Ok, it's not a weapon so much as a recruitment tool, but it's still cool: The Challenger Vapor features radar-absorbing stealth-black paint, not unlike what is used to mask stealth bombers. The Vapor is set to run almost silently, thanks to “stealth exhaust” – whatever that means. Reminds...

    Now 45 years old and revamped for 2010 with new styling and more powerful V-8, the "pony car" that debuted in 1964 is strikingly muscular, more energetic than before and thoroughly cool for a modern buyer. You dont even have to pretend to be Steve McQueen, the lead actor in the 1968 film "Bullitt" who famously drove a Mustang in one of Hollywoods best chase scenes, to enjoy the new Mustangs unique persona.

  • [Car Mechanic Vanity] Need FReeper Gear-Head advice on '97 Mustang odo- speedo- meter issue

    The Ford Factory ^ | 09/16/2009 | blueflag
    Question for FReeper gearheads: I have a beloved '97 Mustang V6 automatic. The speedo and tach work just fine, but both odometers have simultaneously ceased to advance. I am used to British Leyland/ Morris Garage vehicles wherein a cable ran from the transmission case to the back of said devices. None exist on the Mustang, just an electrical connection/wiring to a 'speed sensor' on the housing. What do you think has failed? Please apply Ockham's razor. Has the speed sensor likely failed, or is this a ghastly remove the dash and replace the speedo/tach assembly? Many thanks for your advice.

    When Ford refreshed the 2010 Mustang, they ignored mostly the engine bay. However, that will change with the new 2011 Ford Mustang. The base Mustang will be powered by Ford’s 3.7L V6 for the 2011 model year. Although that engine yields 273 horses in Lincoln cars, power will be ramped up to 315 horsepower for the Mustang. That represents a significant increase of 105 horsepower over the current V6-powered Mustang. Furthermore, a 400 horsepower 5.0L V8 motor will also join the Mustang lineup for 2011. Dubbed ‘Coyote,’ it will be used in the Mustang GT model with a six-speed manual...
