Think you’re a Ford Mustang fanatic? Perhaps, but probably not as much as Brian Johnson and Rene Doane. The couple tied last month with a completely Mustang-themed wedding complete with custom-made Mustang rings, Mustang lapel pins, a Mustang cake topper, Mustang-themed tables and even a Mustang garter belt. There were even two Ford Mustangs, a 2005 and a 2009, flanking the couple as they said their vows. And what did the lucky couple drive away in? I don’t think we even need to answer that…
The two decided to have a …

The Drive Network’s “Big Muscle” takes a look at a different muscle car every week, and in currently in the spotlight is this 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback owned by Greg Smith. This isn’t your typical ’67 Mustang, as Smith has converted it to a full drag setup complete with a 393 Windsor stroker motor, 8-point roll cage, Currie 9-inch rear end with 4.10 gears, B&M ratchet shifter and 15-inch Fenton drag wheels with Mickey Thompson drag slicks out back and skinnies up front.

Back in April at the Fabulous Fords Forever show in Southern California we showed you the unfinished version of Agent 47′s 1969 Mustang race car dubbed the Harbinger X2. At that point the car was still under construction and missing items like front fenders and a hood, although that gave us the opportunity to get a closer look at the integrated roll cage, Agent 47′s proprietary SLA front suspension system and the potent Ford Racing Boss 302 crate engine.
Fast forward a few months and we’re happy to say that we …

By normal standards this 1969 Shelby GT500 is a rare car. It’s just one of eighteen built in Grabber Yellow, and just one of three with a 3.50 Traction-Lok rear axle. What makes this GT500 truly special, though, is that it was once owned by the late Carroll Shelby. The current owner, who purchased the car from Shelby, has spent the last ten years meticulously restoring the GT500 back to showroom condition but has now decided it’s time to part ways. The car is scheduled to be sold to the …
