  • Classic Recreations Shelby GT500CR

    In the muscle and pony car world, the Ford Motor Company [NYSE:F] Shelby GT500 is one of the more prized machines in a sea of already celebrated and loved bits of iron. They're not hard to find, necessarily, but they're certainly expensive. For some though, there are ways to make them even more expensive. Jason Engel and his talented team at Classic Recreations are just the ones to help bring such cars to life, and they've done that with one of their latest creations; the Blurple GT500CR you see above. The term "blurple" describes the paint of the car. It appears purple but in some light it...

  • 2016 Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang
    Commuting and the 2016 Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang don't mix: second drive

    We've already driven the Ford Shelby Mustang GT350, and spent most of our time in its natural habitat: the road course at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca (to be fair, any track will do). But this past week I've had the opportunity to drive the GT350 at home in Chicago, like I would any other commuter...

  • Ole Yeller 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350
    Shelby GT350 named Ole Yeller inspired by iconic P-51D Mustang aircraft, legendary pilot

    With its striking yellow paint scheme and neon green accents, this Ford Shelby GT350 isn't your average pony car. That's because it was inspired by one of the best-known fighter aircraft ever to take to the skies. Nicknamed Ole Yeller, the special Shelby GT350 is sort of a road-going version of an...

This week's visitor is a freshly-restored 1969 Boss 429...

  • British police test the 2016 Ford Mustang GT

    It might be as American as apple pie, but the Ford Motor Company [NYSE:F] Mustang looks surprisingly correct swathed in the distinctive neon Battenburg paint scheme of the British police. Ford's pony car is being "assessed" by police forces in the United Kingdom as a potential patrol car. British police cars aren't exactly known for their style, but the country's rozzers do tend to select something with a little more oomph than many other European countries. Typical police cruisers have included turbocharged Volvo XC70 and BMW 330d wagons lately, but the police have also used Land Rovers in...

  • 2010 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 barn find
    Is this 2010 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 a modern barn find?

    When we think about automotive barn finds, we normally envision a dusty car tucked away in storage after something went wrong on it many years ago.

  • Side-by-side Ford Mustangs at the National Inventors Hall of Fame Museum

    Visitors to the National Inventors Hall of Fame Museum can now take an especially innovative trip through automotive history without having to take more than a few steps. Ford and the museum, which is on the grounds of the United States Patent and Trademark Office Campus in Alexandria, Virginia, have teamed up to create a side-by-side display that's half 1965 Ford Mustang and half 2015 Mustang. Although the Mustang debuted as a 1964 1/2 model, it was essentially unchanged for 1965, so it makes a nice bookend with the redesigned-for-2015 Mustang that's still on sale today. CHECK OUT: Meet the...

  • Vaught Gittin Jr.'s 2016 Ford Mustang RTR drift car

    Everything your physics teacher ever taught you about the way a car can move on pavement should be thrown out the window thanks to Vaughn Gittin, Jr. and his latest, 900-horsepower (it could be more) Ford Mustang RTR. The drift master's Mustang RTR is so new that Ford Performance hasn't even figured out how much horsepower it actually makes. Gittin, Jr.'s highly modified drift machine has been pared back to just 2,800 pounds, or around 900 pounds lighter than a stock Mustang GT you can buy from your local dealer, which makes its 900-plus horsepower all the more entertaining. RTR carbon fiber...
