  1. What is it like driving '65 - '73 Mustang and how does it compare to a S550??

    Sadly, I'm of the age now that when I see an attractive looking young woman, my thoughts are more like, "Wow! I'll bet her mother's a Fox!" (LOL) And I'm a grandfather who drives a 1970 Mach 1 and a 2014 Shelby GT500. But when I ride with grandma, we take her 2019 Ecoboost Mustang...
  2. What is it like driving '65 - '73 Mustang and how does it compare to a S550??

    With my 1970 Mach 1, instead of comparing her to your Grandmother, I prefer to think of as her still attractive Mother. Still looks good and has a nice body. Just maybe not as fast or daring as she once was. 😉
  3. Battle of the stock Shelby GT500s! 2020 CFTP vs. 2013 street races - rolling and from dig! (video)

    Thanks, great comparison!. I've driven both and they are definitely two different cars. When driving the 2020 on the track at the GT500 Track Adventure in Concord, NC, I kept wanting to look down at my feet to see who was working the clutch, beeping the throttle, and down shifting for me into...
  4. Video: 2020 Shelby GT500 North American Track Tour @ Sonoma Raceway

    I did the GT500 North American Track Tour last week at Concord, N.C. and it was fantastic. The capabilities of the new GT500 are unbelievable. While the acceleration and performance are awesome, the brakes impressed me the most. During my five laps around the race track road course, they...

    Excellent response, Bruce. My 1970 Mach 1 is that beautiful Homecoming Queen in high school. Only now she's 50 years old and her daughter is the new hotness that all the young men are chasing (LOL). She still looks good and can turn an eye with her ageless beauty. Maybe she's not as quick...
  6. What is it like driving '65 - '73 Mustang and how does it compare to a S550??

    Anything is possible (LOL). In 2004 the ADM's went away and there were some really good deals towards the end of the production run of Mach 1's. I can see that happening again, in white of course, although the Jet Fighter Gray does look good in person.
  7. What is it like driving '65 - '73 Mustang and how does it compare to a S550??

    I owned a new 2003 Mach 1 and old 1970 Mach 1 at one time. When I was asked to compare the two, my standard answer was the new Mach was faster, handled better, more comfortable, and got better gas mileage. The only thing the older one did better was I got more "smiles to the mile" in driving...
  8. 2021 Mach 1 Colors Thread

    Thanks, "Twin Turbo", figured there had to be a better explanation. Also in talking with some of the people involved with the new Mach 1 at Carlisle, I thought I heard that 40% of the Mach's were slated for export. It seems there is a higher profit margin for Ford as most of these cars are...
  9. 2021 Mach 1 Colors Thread

    Please excuse my ignorance, but where do these pictures of the new 2021 Mach 1 keep coming from? Ford says the order banks won't be available till October 2020 and then appear in dealerships in the Spring. I've seen the two that Ford is showing at events and was told they were the "only" two...
  10. 2021 Mach 1 Colors Thread

    In talking with a Ford Executive at Carlisle two weeks ago, he told me an interesting story on the orange stripping and calipers. It's a tribute to the original X-1 flown by Chuck Yeager in 1947. It was originally painted orange. The "Jet Fighter Gray" color comes from late 50's/early 60's...
  11. 2019 Ecoboost gets active-valve exhaust

    Are there any horsepower gains in the open modes of the active valve exhaust system on the EcoBoost?
  12. Introduce yourself!!

    New to this forum, but not to Mustangs. Bought my first new Mustang in 1970 and have been my daily drivers ever since. My current stable includes a 1970 Mach1 with 351C with Shaker Hood, a 2014 Shelby GT500, and a recently added 2019 Pony Package Convertible to be my daily driver. The 2019...
