I. The 2010 Camaro SS laid down and 8m 19s lap of the Nurburgring recently. For a big honkin’ piece of American iron, you can’t really say fairer than that. Until you look at the timesheets of other swift GMs and realize that the Cobalt SS, a smaller, less powerful hunk of American iron did [...]

I. It has begun, er, it continues. The modification of the Hyundai Genesis Coupe, that is. Even before the car hits dealerships in the States, boy racers in Korea have been hard at work giving us a sneak peek at what the Genesis Coupe can be. As if the little Korean wasn’t badass enough. Check [...]

Fool’s Gold: Curse Maine Edition

So, ever since our Domestic Bliss on the Ford Mustang SVO, I’ve had an itch for a Fox Body with a turbo four under the hood. Call it the East Tennessean in me, but I want a white trash Ferrari like a Black Bear wants honey. Too much? It’s about to get worse. Just take [...]

Domestic Bliss: Ford Mustang SVO

If all this business about Ford’s new turbo four-cylinder sounds familiar, it should. Turn back the clock a decade or two and you’ll see the Big Three doing a dance that mirrors today’s pretty closely. No, there were no federal bailouts on the books, but years of cranking out heavy breathing, heavy drinking bruisers came [...]

Tennessee Tin: 1965 Ford Mustang

It’s snowing out in these parts (Knoxville), and while that mostly just leaves me grumbling about the cold and wet, it also makes for some pretty serene photos of local tin. A ’65 Mustang has sat next door for as long as I can remember, and with a fresh blanket of the white stuff on [...]

Fool’s Gold: Mint 3500-Mile 1987 Ford Mustang GT

This must be the nicest, most original, most immaculate Foxbody Mustang outside of Dearborn, Michigan.  A 1987 model with the 5.0 liter V8 engine, this Stang has 1980s-appropriate T-tops and only 3500 miles. The “Buy It Now” price is $14,500, making this one of the most expensive Fool’s Gold posts ever. But in all honesty, [...]

Detroit Auto Show: Cut-Outs and Cut-Aways

I don’t need to tell you one of the best parts of an auto show is all the cool cut-aways manufacturers roll out. This year’s Detroit Auto Show was no different, with just about every team in play serving up either cool engine or a complete rig cut away to reveal the inner workings. The [...]

Detroit Auto Show: Grabber Blue + Red Stripes = Richard Petty Ford GT500

The only way this car could be any hotter is if it were a hard top. Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against a superchargd, 5.4-liter V8 drop-head with 540 horses. No sir. I just like my ponies with a mean roof line. Of course Ford isn’t calling this particular GT500 an STP special, [...]

First Mustang Cobra Jet Produced

Here it is: the first Mustang FR500CJ. The car was first unveiled at SEMA last year and showcases what would happen if Ford built a pony to do nothing but dominate the quarter-mile. A track-use only monster, Ford says the car is made for NHRA competition. That means bits like a breathed-on 5.4-liter Cobra Jet [...]

Grabber Blue. Say it with me now, Grabber Blue. It’s the Hot Wheels color all the cool kids want stuffed in their stockings. The color that those same kids’ dads are imagining parked in their driveways. At dinner, Ford beat into our bar-b-q soaked brains that over nine million Mustangs have so far been sold. [...]

Fox Body Mustang

Picture of the Day: Fox Body

Our tight jeans lovin’ pal Wes Siler over at Los Jalops has been calling out Autoblog Sam because of the Fusion Hybrid mileage challenge. Sam achieved 43.1 mpg. Captain Siler got 43.8 mpg. Not only does Wes call Sam fat and hairy, but Siler goes on to attribute his own skinny-assness for the “win.” Wes fails to [...]

2010 Ford Mustang Reveal: We Can’t Get Enough ‘Stang Either

I do agree with Levy — Ford could have done better than the popcorn. Although I really liked the Fritos. And the cute young lady that gave me four bags when I only asked for one. Hey, it’s called, “blogger chic.” But yes, Mustangs. Tons of ‘em. Including at least one dozen new 2010 models. [...]

Exclusive Video: 2010 Ford Mustang VIP Launch With Drifting ‘Stangs

The Ford folks quite rightly spared no expense on the launch of their latest and greatest Mustang tonight at Barker Hangar at Santa Monica CA on the eve of the 2008 Los Angeles International Auto Show. Well they actually spared a little—on the food—popcorn and Doritos aren’t the best way to a portly auto journo’s [...]
