2005-2009 S197 Mustang
-- by Jonathon Klein There is really only one cardinal rule that governs all sports cars or anything really quite fast. Don't be an asshat. What I mean by this is, you can put yourself in danger all you want, but as soon as you might put someone else in danger, just stop what you're doing and throw in the towel. This idiot should have done just that. I'm all
-- by Adam Pockross There are plenty of movies that feature Mustangs in supporting roles, but not nearly enough of them give the thoroughbred proper lead billing like the A-lister she is. Paul W.S. Anderson's dystopian driving orgy "Death Race" is one movie that gets it right. Released in 2008, but presciently set in the economically crest-fallen future of 2012, "Death Race" stars Frankenstein's Monster, a seemingly indestructible 2006 GT decked
--by Manuel Carrillo Get 2,000 Mustangs together, and shenanigans are bound to happen. That's what went down last week at the annual Mustang Week held in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The video you are about to see features not one -- not two, but three Mustang crashes. Hell, that's enough for at least one segment of a TV show that I would title, "When Wheelspin Goes Wrong". Perhaps John Bunnell could narrate it. My favorite burnout/crash,
I can't quite make out whether this is some kind of prank after watching it several times, but it's definitely stirring up quite a buzz. Practically every car news outlet has spotlighted the 42-second video. CBS even featured it on its website. The clip shows a Shelby Mustang being matched up against a 2008 Smart car with a 1.5-liter Toyota Paseo Sprintex Blown engine on the drag strip. I'll spare you the spoiler because
There're few things better than hopping into your Mustang for a day out at the track, but if you've never been it can be fairly intimidating. Here are some things to keep an eye out for and just remember the most important rule: have fun. Track days should be your next step before hopping into the world of competitive time attack from autocross. So, if you've never been to an autocross we would suggest
A Mustang driver in Durham, North Carolina had a pretty scary ordeal that reminds us all of the importance of safety when driving any automobile. The 24-year-old man had to be feed from being pinned in his car under a tractor trailer after it collided into the truck, according to a local Durham ABC local news report. Apparently, the driver was trapped inside his car 30 minutes before emergency workers were able to free him
It appears that a Mustang driver leaving a recent Cars and Coffee event in Charlotte, North Carolina might have had a little bit too much caffeine. Moments after leaving the event, the driver was caught by an amateur video camera swerving out of control in his Mustang and crashing into a fire hydrant. Luckily, no one was seriously hurt. But it could be a sign that maybe there should be a limit on those
Watch as this 6R140 6-speed auto-equipped Mustang puts a hurting on some seriously fast cars! The Coyote-equipped Mustang features a Paxton blower atop a built motor that's sipping on E85 and feeding all 780whp through a built transmission and Nitto drag radials. It's opponents? How about a GTR that's Ecutek tuned for E85 by Spray It Racing and backed by full exhaust, big injectors and an ETS Race intercooler? But that's not all, the
Correct me if I'm wrong but... I think that if you drive a Mustang, there's a pretty good chance that you enjoy the occasional burnout. It's a pleasure as old as rear-wheel-drive. I can understand not doing them though. They're not exactly easy on the tires. So instead of putting your own rubber at risk, enjoy this five minute ode to the burnout. The only soundtrack you'll need is thrum of a Ford V8
TMS Editor The Mustang Source Like we've been saying, it appears that even the current gen Mustang is gaining a little more popularity with the roll out of the 2015 model. Less than a week after the official debut of the new model, Cars.com has announced that the Mustang is winner of its 2014 Shopper's Choice award. The ten finalists for the award, which also included the Chevy Camaro, were selected based on car
TMS EditorThe Mustang Source The anticipation for the 50th Anniversary of the Ford Mustang has been fueling a lot of discussions around the office here at The Mustang Source over which Mustangs have been the most iconic over the past five decades. Sure, we know - they're all special in their unique way. But with every great automotive nameplate there's always a few that stick out. Is it the 1964 ½ Mustang, which is
Marcus Slater Mustang Forums Wow. This is probably one of the most brazen displays of hoonage and utter disregard for public safety that I've seen on the road. I'm not even mad, I'm just shocked by the balls of these guys. I mean, this is a major throughfare in Oakland, California. A freeway. It's not really surprising that it would happen in Oakland, but still. They shut it down for a solid minute. No

Built by the team at Galpin Auto Sports, the car features high quality carbon fiber parts developed by Raceskinz including a front splitter with side spoilers, upper and lower grille, hood heat
Marcus SlaterMustangForumsDetermination is a quality that all professional competitors know something about. When it comes to endurance racing though, determination takes on a new meaning. Jose Close, the driver of the Team VDS Adventures Mustang, showed that he knows a thing or two about determination at the 24HRS of Spa last weekend. Team VDS Racing was having troubles with steering for the most of the race, which put them in the pits for three

Of course, the seller disagrees, saying that "this Mustang stands out like no other car." The seller also boasts
Marcus Slater Mustang Forums Fans of Transformers rejoice! Barricade, the Saleen Mustang decepticon from the first movie, is on sale on ebay. In case you're movie memory isn't so sharp, here's the clip where Barricade first makes his appearance. Judging by the sellers page and pictures, this is the real deal. He has all the documentation from The Branson Auto Museum, which had the car sitting on display. Just because it was sitting in
Article courtesy of MustangsDaily.com, your source for all the latest Ford Mustang news and articles Burnout contests probably don't make much sense to the non gear-head, and we can't blame them for not completely understanding a competition to see who can obliterate their rear tires for the longest amount of time. Even so, burnouts are just as much part of drag racing as just about anything, and who doesn't enjoy seeing a muscle car conjure
Content provided by amosauto.com by Ricardo Topete Most auto enthusiasts tend to measure speed in a straight line, while a small percentage will also give equal importance to the turns. Successfully negotiating a tight, hairpin turn at full gallop provides a thrill that is hard to beat. Having the steering wheel cranked with the rear tires in a controlled slide, feathering the throttle to maintain just enough grip, all the while flirting with the laws of
by John CoyleMustang ForumsThe seller claims this is an original 1967 Shelby Mustang, and if he's correct, it seems a little silly to have turned it into a restomod. Sure, the interior and drivetrain have been pulled from a 2009 Shelby, so there's an attempt to maintain the pedigree... But seriously? How high is this person? As soon as I saw this, I started doing the math on how much it would cost to put
C5R Racing Engine Powers Street-Going Mustang GTby Jason GiacchinoIt wouldn't be too far off to compare the following build to drinking Coke out of a Pepsi bottle or Superman getting an organ transplant from Lex Luthor. Some rivalries are so embedded into society's collective consciousness that blending seems absolutely ludicrous. And, while it's tough to imagine a rivalry bigger than Ford & Chevy throughout the years, just such a merging has been witnessed.The concept of
