Owners of the 2007-2012 Shelby GT500 might be jealous of the upgraded supercharger system in the 2013 GT500, but they don’t have to be. Ford Racing Performance Parts is now offering an upgrade kit that swaps out the 1.9-liter supercharger for the larger 2.3-liter TVS unit. Part number M-6066-MSVT23, the kit includes the supercharger with 68mm pulley, Cobra Jet oval throttle body and adapter and a 2013 GT500 supercharger belt. Sensors are not included, a different size belt may be necessary and a custom calibration is required. Retail pricing is …

A few months ago we showed you the first footage of the Shelby 1000 in action, with the car making several runs up and down the drag strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. While the clips were good for seeing just how quickly Shelby’s most powerful Mustang ever could melt off its tires, though, it didn’t exactly have a lot of production value.
Not so with this latest video, a three minute commercial for the David Yurman Revolution Shelby 1000 watch (or timepiece, if you want to get fancy) that we …

We’ve never heard of the web site Betbomb.com up until now, but their latest promotion definitely caught our attention. The company offers free tournaments in which users guess the outcomes of various sporting events, with the winners getting  a variety of prizes.
The latest item up for grabs? A 2013 Ford Mustang V6. Of course, the web site isn’t making the pony car easy to get. Users have to successfully pick the winner of 30 games in a  row to claim the Mustang. To make it a little easier you can …

One of the coolest features specific to the Ford Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca is the rear seat delete. Yes, it means you won’t have the ability to haul around kids or friends in the back seat, but the cross bracing looks plain awesome.
Previously the rear seat delete was only available on the Laguna Seca models, but it’s finally been added to the Ford Racing Performance Parts catalog and can be installed on 2011-2013 Ford Mustangs. Part number M-6346612-A, the package includes the x-brace, trunk-end trim panel and center luggage …

Mustangs at the Queen Mary 2012

Monday, September 24th, 2012

The largest Mustang show in Southern California might be Fabulous Fords at Knotts, but for us nothing beats the setting of Mustangs at the Queen Mary. Put on by the Beach Cities Mustang Club and set alongside the picturesque Long Beach harbor with the famous retired cruise ship floating nearby and the city skyline in full view, the show always boasts beautiful weather and several hundred high quality classic and late model Mustangs strewn across the grassy park. This year was no different, with the event celebrating its 16th year …

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

As part of their open house and car show in Southern California this past weekend, Saleen debuted their latest Mustang, the 2013 Saleen 302, in front of dozens of owners and enthusiasts. As you can see from the photos, the the 2013 model doesn’t look all that different from the 2012 models, featuring the same overall design that debuted in 2010 as the SMS 302 Mustang, with the most noticeable difference being the new LED taillights. Remnants of the former brand are still seen throughout the car, with the SMS …
