DEARBORN, Mich., March 15, 2017 Ford is issuing a recall for approximately 6,000 2017 Ford Mustangs built at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant, Jan. 13, 2017 to Jan. 31, 2017. . The Mustangs are being recalled to inspect the left interior door handle return spring. In the affected vehicles, the left-hand interior door handle return spring may have been installed incorrectly, which could cause the return spring to become unseated. If the interior door handle return spring is unseated, the inertial loads experienced by the interior door…

This Ford Bronco Pontoon Boat Is An All Terrain Party Barge

You know what is missing in this world? An amphibious Ford Bronco pontoon boat. Luckily somebody out there had the vision and the talent to create one:   From what we can tell this amazing piece of engineering was the brain child of Werner Martinmaas, a prolific inventor with several tool and boat related patents. The name of the Bronco was “Big Duck” and it was the prototype for his add-on pontoon flotation system. Considering a third gen Bronco weighs in at well over 4,000 pounds,…

Ford Econoline Van Jet Dragster Is Pure Americana And It Is For Sale!

Our hats are off to whoever looked at their 1979 Ford Econoline and thought “I bet I could fit a jet engine back there.” It did take a little massaging and a little stretching, but it fits and it is glorious. It is a little shorter than stock, but the brick-like aerodynamics are intact. And while the dragon mural on the side isn’t exactly screaming bald eagles, there is something strangely American about it. Well, other than the fact is it is a Ford Econoline…

This Wide Body 2014 Mustang Has A Sad Secret…

While perusing eBay this morning, pretending that we have money, we came across an awesome looking wide body 2014 Mustang:   Pretty cool right? It even has an old school IMSA vibe to it from the front. There was obviously a lot of work put into this car, and the 2014 Mustang was probably the best looking model year of S-197 generation. We’ve got stripes, customs badges, custom headrests, and a decent tire & wheel package. Looking good so far! So imagine our surprise as…

2016 Ford GT – A Twin-Turbo 600 Horsepower V6 Supercar!

And just like that “BAM!” there it is, the return of the Ford GT. Gone is the thundering V8 power of the previous GT and GT40, in its place an impressive 600-horsewpower twin-turbo EcoBoost 3.5L V6. The last generation Ford GT has been generating a lot of interest in the collector car world, with values only appreciating. With this latest generation Ford brings their EcoBoost engine along with extensive use of carbon fiber to shave weight and bolster rigidity. Ford has also brought active aerodynamics…

1970 Mustang Boss 302 Trans Am Racer To Hit The Auction Block

Further acknowledging what we here at Motor City Muscle Cars have long known, American race cars are not only worth saving, but they are also a serious investment opportunity. Last year RM sold a 1965 Shelby GT350 R for just a touch under $1,000,000.00. That is some serious coin for a Mustang. And while this Boss 302 probably won’t bring that level of bidding right now, we think that sale may influence future sales of these vintage race cars. There is bound to be a…

MRT’s TKO 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost 2.3L Rolls Out At SEMA 2014

Scott Hoag has a funny sense of humor. Back in 2011 Scott’s team at MRT decided to take a different path and customize a lowly V6 Mustang. Yes, the same car your parents bought your little sister for graduation. But Scott had a plan, one that included bolting on a ProCharger and pushing the little 3.7L V6 over the 400 horsepower mark. He treated the rest of the car to a full road racing package and a full custom interior. The car made waves at…

Street Race: 2015 Mustang GT Versus 2014 Mustang GT

Now that 2015 Ford Mustangs are landing in dealer showrooms it was just a matter of time before videos like this started popping up. To be fair this isn’t the most scientific comparison ever conducted but at least. For one, the 2014 GT is equipped with an automatic transmission while the 2015 GT is rocking a stick. Also, most there is no real timing equipment involved, it is all done street racing style.

Watch A 1968 Mustang Cobra Jet Launch Hard At The Strip!

There’s no denying we love old muscle & pony cars around here (hence the name of the site). But what we love even more are old pony  cars getting thrashed on the track. The driver of this 1968 Mustang Cobra Jet hits it hard on the launch and dribbles the front end a few times on the way to a  10.10 at 136 mph. We know a set of wheelie bars would upset the sleeper look, but we think the ‘chute on the back already…

Mustang – The First 50 Years: DVD Review

It really is hard to capture just how deep the history of the Ford Mustang runs, but “Mustang – The First 50 Years” takes a pretty good crack at covering it all. This double DVD set examines the world of the Mustang from multiple angles: interviews & profiles of the people who brought the Mustang to life, Mustang owner profiles that help bring the passion of the car to life, “behind the scenes” looks at the companies that make the Mustang world go round, and…
