I was looking for pictures of my Mustang and found these..

I loved my Mustang, a 1991 LX 5.0 notchback with manual trans and 3.08 rear. Totally stock, but lots of fun to take to Englishtown Raceway Park. My buddy Joe Z and I used to go down a couple of times each year.

Here's a blast from the past! I totally forgot I had this video...

My good friend also named Joe and I used to take our Mustangs to Englishtown Raceway Park several times a season just to have fun. My Mustang was bone stock, 5.0 LX Notchback with a 5 spd manual and 3.08 rear gears. And I had thought I lost this video long ago. It's poor quality, but it's

Interesting article at AutoBlog, sounded very familiar...

So, I was reading AutoBlog just a while ago and came across an interesting piece refering to a Detroit News article, linked at AutoBlog, and the subject seemed like something I covered a long time ago. Ford's inane naming scheme. You know the whole "F bomb" thing. Which of course I explained long ago wasn't actually limited to F, but E and M and of course now the MK fiasco.

You can read my earlier post here it's from 2 years ago, but still rings true and then compare it to the article linked above. I love the comments over at AutoBlog

Reflex fix

My Reflex fix. Like a junky craving, here's how I get my Reflex fix.

The more I see of Ford in Europe, the more I hope we see it here in the near future.

I haven't blogged in a while, been busy, but that doesn't mean I haven't been reading about all the new Ford products around the globe. And the more I see what the rest of the world gets, the more I hope that we get it here. Igor, a regular reader and commentor, has said that we should be patient and that he's got word that we will indeed see a new crop of Euro Fords in the North American market, possibly as early as 2010 or 2011. And he seems to be right? Mulally is quoted as saying Ford is going to bring global Ford product here in that timeframe.

Well, I know what I want, I want the Kuga CUV with a Turbo Diesel and 6 speed manual.
