It’s been talked about a million times, and like it or not, the 2015 Mustang will be a new platform that will supersede the S197 chassis. Inside I discuss my wishlist on what I would like to see Ford produce for the 2015 Mustang redesign.

We’re a close knit network of committed people who talk to each other, share ideas, and build some of the coolest hardware out there. However, Ford has never been easy – not for the performance enthusiast nor the buyer.

Does your car club seem more like a lonely hearts afternoon tea than a thriving organization? Car clubs are struggling with declining numbers, dwindling revenue, and keeping pace with changing times. Times are changing so quickly it is enough to make your head spin, but don’t let that overwhelm you.

For nearly 10 years, Baby Boomers have had their way when it comes to the styling for the Ford Mustang. Now that Ford is going forward with more futuristic styling, many of these same Boomers are up in arms. To them I say, sit down, shut up, and let a new generation take the wheel.

Because I’ve been a Mustang owner and enthusiast since the early 1970s, I’ve seen a lot change in 40 years. The greatest challenge for Ford through the years has been how to maintain the Mustang’s traditional styling nuances, yet keep the car fresh. Mustang’s future remains in the best of hands.

When I entered the Knott’s Fabulous Fords Forever show field, I couldn’t help but notice a huge shift in the balance of generational power from what I remember way back in the early 1980s. I got a fit of the giggles that still hangs with me at this late night hour…

Despite being a bold step into the future, the 1994-98 SN95 Mustangs get little love from enthusiasts these days. Are they doomed to suffer the same fate as the Mustang II, or will enthusiasts learn to love what I consider the turning point of the Mustang brand?

The man was Lee Iacocca — and until Mustang’s introduction on April 17, 1964, no one had ever heard of him. Iacocca was a young Ford product planner and marketing executive who did great things for Ford Motor Company. He would also bring us Fox body — an all-new Mustang for 1979.

Will the 2013 GT500 actually live up to the promise of 650 horsepower? Or will it turn out to be just a number pulled out of thin air to take the spotlight off of the Camaro ZL1 and buy some time while Ford comes up with an actual, production-spec powerplant for 2013?

The problem is that a lot of these racing sanctions have relationships like Iran and Iraq, when they need to be working together. The doorslammer racing world needs standardized rules for these big categories that everyone uses.

Which brings me to my deferred point; why isn’t Ford giving Mustang owners a flex-fuel option? The technology certainly is there, as Ford uses the same 3.7 liter V6 and 5.0 liter V8 in the Mustang as it does in the F-150 pickup, where both of these engines are E85 capable.
You really have to love your Mustang to drive it every day. I’m not talking about enjoying the performance, handling or panache of driving a Mustang, for those are there any time you choose to close the door and turn the key. What I’m talking about are the ongoing daily, challenges of commuting in a pony car.

Think back…remember all the gauges? It was like sitting in the cockpit of a commercial airliner. Between the tuning and gauges cost, you were knee deep in a second mortgage on your house. Finally (thank god) technology has caught up, and being a muscle car enthusiasts in the 21st century is the best place to be
When you’re in the automotive publishing business, one of the consequences of the job is that you often get asked, “how do I get sponsorship for my race team?” What I usually find, though, is that the racers have only a vague idea of what a sponsorship really is, or how to go about getting one.

Can Ford make a hybrid Mustang? And more importantly, should they? While hybrids are associated with fuel efficient vehicles, it can also mean they can be engineered for performance applications as well. Chris DeMorro thinks so; here’s why.

The answer to your in depth technical questions might be more available to you than you realize. Imagine sitting down with the likes of Doug Yates, Keith Dorton, Dr. Dean Hill, Ron Shaver, or Gary Stanton. Impossible? It might be easier then you think!

Ford sales are up, but Lincoln sales are down. Bad. How can Ford inject some life into its languishing luxury brand? Simple; give it rear-wheel drive performance sedan. Base it on the Mustang, or the Australian Falcon, and watch the money come pouring in.
