Ford launches new Mustang race car
If you plan to get into racing any time soon, Ford would like you to consider the new Mustang. Even as the new production car hits showrooms, Ford is getting ready to launch a race version, and is studying running it in Grand-Am as a factory effort.
Internally known as Boy Racer, the car is powered by a 5.0-liter crate engine producing 420 hp and 370 lb-ft of torque. Dan Davis, Ford's director of racing technology, said the Mustang racer is aimed at drivers interested in showroom stock-type series.
My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.
My next Ford.....
