I’ve always had a thing for Mustangs, which I can trace back to my cousin’s 1970 Mach 1. I know there are faster cars out there, I know there are better handling cars out there, but there’s something about a well built ‘Stang that just sets it apart. Plus, in my mind, no one builds a better sounding V8 than Ford (well, Ferrari maybe).
Michael Mirra sent in these pics of his ’01 Mustang GT Convertible. It’s got a TCI Streetfighter transmission, a 3500 Hughes stall converter, a custom air intake and he’s running Ford Racing 4:10 gears. The car was dropped on Eibach springs and Koni shocks, and he’s got 315’s on the rear to ensure that the car launches as good as it looks.
Thanks for the pics, Mike and nice photography, too. Hard to believe a car that looks that good has 100k miles on it.
