hosted by WYSP Radio in Philadelphia, where 4 people had to stay
in a 2011 Cherry Red Mustang, getting a 15 minute break every 3 hours....
Of the 4 people who began this contest, it was down to 2 people in the end,
and 12 days after the contest began, a winner was announced on July 2.
It came down to a vote, rather than who was able
to actually stay in the vehicle the longest.
Congratulations to the winner of the 2011 Mustang !
Hopefully the first stop was at a car wash to get
rid of all that trash that piled up over the last 12 days!
Can anyone say, Air Freshener?
Want to see more?.... All photos and videos are available here.

So, prior to putting the transmission back
on the car, I crawled beneath the car and snapped a few photos.
color as the Mustang.
for the driveshaft can be seen in this photo above.
Installing a clutch isn't a walk in the park.
You gotta have the right equipment - tools and parts -
but most of all you'll need time and some assistance wouldn't hurt.
Lucky for us, all the above were available to complete this project.
What's your next project?

I already have the 1987 Mustang GT 5.0 and think it would be great (awesome, really) if I could own another 5.0 from the newest generation of Mustangs. Do I hear any sponsors...? Alas, all I heard was cricket noises (sigh)
I first saw that video from a twitter tweet from MuscularMustangs a few days ago. Watching that video makes me want to pinch pennies and save up...but I'm running out of parking space!

Thanks to MuscularMustangs.com for the reminder and to Ford on twitter for the photo!

We were on our way to Austin, in November 2009, in this photo. We opted to go in one car, since the price of gasoline doesn't seem to decrease.
To keep your car as fuel efficient as it can be do the following on a regular basis :
- Maintain optimal air pressure in the tires Grab a tire gauge and check the air pressure in the tires. You can find the optimal air pressure or PSI on the tire itself.
- Use a fuel additive to clean out fuel lines You can go to the local auto parts store and find fuel additives/cleansers. Typically, we’ll reach for a product called SeaFoam. Read over the directions, since some need to be added with a full tank of gas.
- Clean out the air filter Generally speaking, this is one of the easier tasks that just about anyone can handle. Our Mustangs have K&N filters, which can be cleaned out and used again and again.
It’s crucial that the engine receives oxygen, but if your car can’t breathe, then it tends to sputter and/or use up more fuel. Newer cars can have several O2 sensors to maintain the correct oxygen/fuel mixture the engine receives. If one of the O2 sensors goes bad, the “Check Engine” light will appear. Once the code is checked, the O2 sensor can be located and replaced…but sometimes they’re not easily accessible.
The items on this list will help keep your car running efficiently.
What other tips do you have to keep your car running smoothly?

Apparently, Ford issued a recall on the 2010 Mustang line, but Ford Mustang owners have known about this issue for years! :)
You can read the whole article here.
In my opinion, they should have issued a wider recall to include models from years past.
I see you. I always see you. You're in my rearview mirror. Silently sneaking into the side-view mirror. Whether you have a classic Ford Mustang, Saleen, Fox-body, Shelby or Cobra...I see you. Now, you'll drive alongside me and do one of the following things... 1) Look over at my Mustang and then at me to say 'Nice' or something to that effect 2) Look over my Mustang and attempt to engage me in a NASCAR-like race on the highway 3) Attempt to zoom past me, without so much as a wave All the while, I'm most likely going to do one of the following things... 1) Look over at your Mustang and then at you to say 'Nice' or something like that 2) Look over your Mustang and drop mine into neutral, rev up the ponies, just so I know that you know I'm there 3) Continue on my way, without so much as a wave
Either way, I hope that you make it safely to your destination.

This happened on December 23, 2009.
I was on my home from work when I noticed the odometer was close to having consecutive numbers. When it happened, I parked at the nearest place available, which was a gas station, took the photo and drove home.
