So last week I had mentioned that I was heading down to Laguna Seca with my 2013 Ford Mustang GT. Aside from being a factory track pack car, the only upgrades are stainless steel brake lines, upgraded pads and some high temp fluid, otherwise, that’s it. When it came to tires (and as mentioned in my previous post) I ditched the worn out Pirelli P Zero’s and mounted a shiny new set of Michelin Pilot Super Sports. The goal was to baseline the car in stock form for a year and then incrementally upgrade it based on my findings.

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.

EQUUS, Luxury American Muscle Car?

Posted in Best of, Custom, General, muscle cars, Mustang by MrAngry | September 13th, 2013 | Leave a Reply |

Equus 770

Let’s get this right out in the open. This car, the 2014 EQUUS BASS770, is a new take on the American muscle car. It’s got the body of a 1965 Mustang (kinda), a front end that looks like it came from a 1971 Plymouth Road Runner and the engine and suspension out of a Corvette. Oh, and it also costs – wait for it… $250,000. Seriously, they spent some coin on it! Now, is it worth it? Honestly, I have no idea. It does however have one of the best marketing videos out there! Check it out after the jump.

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.

Nitro Warriors 2

Nitro Warriors is a stop motion animated car chase that first appeared in 2012. It featured an old Mach 1 Mustang running from the police in a very James Bond-ish style. 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.

1978TransAm_1

The Pontiac Trans Am’s built between 1977-1981 are some of the most recognizable cars in all of motoring. Starring in such films as Smokey & the Bandit, Fast Five and Old School, these cars were not only great to look at, but had an on screen persona that has been seldom matched. What you are viewing here is a 1978 Pontiac Trans Am with the WS6 performance package. The engine is a 6.6L 403 that makes about 220 hp through a turbo-hydramatic 350 3-speed automatic transmission. The rear end houses a posi-traction unit with a 3.23:1 gear set. The seller claims that this car has gone through a frame-off restoration and that the Trans Am is in original “almost new” condition. If you’re a fan of these cars, this particular one, especially with the t-tops, is the one to own. Make sure to either click through for more photos or go directly to the ebay link below.

1967 Ford Mustang

In the world of muscle cars there are few as iconic as the 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback. It’s stunning body lines were made famous by Steve McQueen in the movie Bullitt (he drove a ’68) and since that time, it has become one of the most sought after muscle cars in existence. This particular car was, is, and will always remain (according to owner Greg Smith) a down home California drag car.
