Here' s some food for thought: the next time you take your car in for repair, you might want to set up a camera inside, just in case the mechanic deliberately tries to damage your vehicle. Sure, that' s certainly not what you'd typically expect when you take your car in to be fixed, but evidently all mechanics don't necessarily have you or your car's best interest at heart.  That's exactly what the owner

by John CoyleMustangForumsWe'll be getting photos from the floor during NAIAS next week, but Jalopnik has posted the best photos yet of the Ford's new "Gotta Have It Green" paint. Personally, I think there should be a five-year moratorium on cars painted silver, white or black, and anyone--like um, Toyota folks--who orders a beige vehicle should have their driving privileges suspended for six months.

For years the Mustang Shelby GT500 has suffered from added weight and an unwieldy engine better designed for a pickup than a sports car.

The last piece of the horsepower puzzle was BBK's Underdrive Power Pulley kit (Part # 1563).

Our test car yielded respectable peak-to-peak gains of 6 rwhp, but the largest gains came in at 5,000 rpm, which revealed 7
