2013 Ford Focus ST

The 2013 Ford Focus ST is a little pistol of a hot-hatch. It’s got a turbocharged 4-banger that makes 252 hp, it will run to 60 mph in around 6-seconds and has a legitimate top speed of over 150 mph. In short, this little bugger is no joke. Plus it’s under 25k! Check it out as Jay Leno puts the little ST through its paces after the jump!

Ammo NYC

Common sense dictates that before you purchase any used vehicle that a pre-purchase inspection should take place. This is something that can be taken care of as easily as bringing the car to your local mechanic, or hiring an expert to go and check it out for you. Larry Kosilla of AMMONYC.com recently traveled to Pittsburgh, PA to inspect a beautiful Ford GT for a client and explains the ins-and-outs of what to look for.

Tire Testing

Yesterday I wrote a full review of just how important a set of really good tires are. I reviewed the Michelin Pilot Super Sports, tires that I feel will transform your automobile. No sooner did I post my review, but then I see that Motor Trend has also conducted a wonderful track test of some great brands with race driver Randy Pobst behind the wheel. Check it out after the jump and prepare to be educated!

Mustang II: The Unsung Hero

Posted in Domestic Rides, Educational, Ford, muscle cars, Mustang, Rides, Videos by MrAngry | September 19th, 2013 | 2 Responses |

Ford Mustang II

The Ford Mustang II is perhaps the most hated of all the Mustangs. Built from 1974–1978, it was, for all intents and purposes, a raging sales success selling over 400,000 units in its first year of production. It was smaller and lighter than previous models, and was meant to combat the fuel crises of the early 1970’s. However, by the end of its life cycle, enthusiasts wanted more power and better performance. Today there seems to be a resurgence in these little pony cars as people are finally starting to realize (some 30 years later) that these actually were good little cars with big personalities.

Renault Clio RS 200 EDC v Ford Fiesta ST Mountune

The Renault Clio RS 200 EDC and the Ford Fiesta ST Mountune. Two mini hot-hatches the we don’t get over here in the United States. Correction, we get the Fiesta ST, but without the factory Mountune tune that you can get over in the UK. Both cars are relatively light and surprisingly quick for their respective sizes. However the Ford, even with the extra punch, is a helluva lot cheaper than the Renault. /DRIVE’s Chris Harris lets us know why.

Laguna Seca this weekend!

It’s about time… I’ve been going through speed withdrawals since my last track day and this coming Sunday can’t come soon enough. This should be a good one as I’m finally ditching the stock and worn out Pirelli P Zero tires on my 2013 Mustang GT w/ the track pack. It’s not a crazy car mind you, but considering it was purchased with the sole purpose of being a track rat, I can’t complain as it does its job quite well. The Pirelli’s racked up a total of 9 track days running in the advanced group, and even though they look like there’s still tread (and there is) they’ve been heat cycled to death and are now like driving on a set of lunch trays that have been smeared in nasal discharge (i.e. – boogers).

Pro-touring Car or New Car?

Mustang Corkscrew

I was reading at post over at Moparts.com that raised the question: “Should I build a Pro-touring car OR purchase something new”. Since this is something that recently went through, I decided to throw out a decent (albeit a bit long) answer. For those of you that are in this predicament, well… I hope this helps.

“Our old cars are wonderful machines. They have styling that can’t be matched, can be made to perform wonderfully with enough time, talent and money, and at days end will always make you feel good. However, think about what goes into making that happen. Think about the countless hours of trouble-shooting problems and chasing ghosts like squeaks, rattles, vibrations and electrical issues. People get frustrated, lose and then regain interest, but ultimately, everybody is still always, in some way wrenching on their cars.

1922 Ford Roadster

Family heirlooms tend to come in many different shapes and sizes. Sometimes they come in the form of a piece of jewelry, other times a piece of furniture. Rarely though do they come equipped with a 255 cubic inch Ford flathead, side pipes and a sound that rivals most orchestras. This is Anji Ramsey’s 1922 Ford Roadster and it’s a car that’s been in her family (in one way or another) for the better part of 65 years. Click through and check it out!

Now, almost 1 year later, Nitro Warriors 2 is out and with it we’re treated to more amazing stop motion animation, a very creative imagination, and an ending that just keeps us wanting more.

MAIER Racing: 1966 Mustang Coupe – /BIG MUSCLE

Maier Racing

If you’ve ever driven a bone-stock mid-1960’s Ford Mustang, then you know that these little cars make wonderful cruisers. They possess movie-star good looks and turn heads everywhere. Drive them hard though and you’ll soon realize that what lies beneath that sheet metal is usually in need of some serious improvement . Mike Maier of Maier Racing is the owner of this stunning blue 1966 coupe, a car that was supposed to have been bought as a play toy for him and his wife. However when you grow up in a racing family, leaving things alone is generally not an option. Little by little the Mustang evolved away from the family hot-rod and into a test bed for new parts. More importantly than that though, it’s now one of the baddest street ‘Stangs on the planet. Most people will tell you that “Bigger is always better”… one drive in the Maier Racing ’66 coupe however may make you rethink that statement entirely.
