How hardcore is your Mustang Pride? Would you get inked or have you already? I have noticed on a few different Mustang forums and websites where quite a few dedicated people are sporting some Mustang tattoos with the most popular being our iconic Running Pony.

There’s no doubt that the Mustang is currently the hottest muscle car on the block, but keeping it that way is going to be a challenge for Ford! In order to lead the pack over the next decade, many people believe that a design change could be in order as early as 2014. This has sparked quite a few renderings and concepts, but I had to pull one of my favorites to show you guys:
We recently asked you guys on our Facebook page what the best Mustang production paint color was and we got an INCREDIBLE response…
So Incredible that we have decided to set up a poll where you can really duke it out for best paint color! So go on and tell us, what is the best? Sonic Blue? Grabber Orange? Mystichrome? Torch Red? Shall I go on?
The manual vs. automatic rivalry rages on and the comparison between the two has never been hotter! Credit Ford for fanning the flames with the awesome 5R55S (2005-2010 Mustang GT) and 6R80 (2011 5.0L Mustang) automatic transmissions as they have gone toe-to-toe on the drag strip with stick-shift equipped Mustangs.
I admit it, my 2007 Mustang has an automatic transmission and I like it. There, I’ve said it and I am not ashamed one bit! In fact, I am not alone in being impressed with the 5R55S as MM&FF Editor and die-hard stick-shift racer Evan Smith has stated on many equations he likes racing his wife’s auto-equipped ’07 Stang. Another stick-shift-or-die guy is noted NMRA racer and shop owner Justin Burcham and he digs the latest auto cars too. In fact, I’ve even quoted Justin in a magazine article as saying that if he had to own an auto-equipped Mustang it would be one with a 5R55S slush-box.
From time to time, someone will ask us “Why does my car put out 290 horsepower on the dyno if it was rated at 300 horsepower stock?” Dyno results can be confusing for anyone who hasn’t read up on the topic. How can the same car put down different numbers just because the dyno manufacturer isn’t the same? These answers are simple much easier to understand if you know how a dyno calculates or measures horsepower and torque.
