2015 Ford Mustang GT Sells for $300K at Barrett-Jackson
The first production 2015 Ford
Mustang GT has netted $300,000 at the Scottsdale Barrett-Jackson auction in
Cobra jet 1st track day !!
Well got her to the track today and
made 3 passes. There are three tunes that come on the flasher. The tune in the
car is what they call 50% the other 2 are 62% and 89% the last one being the
most aggressive. We can only run the 50% because we do not have the chip that
makes the flasher operational. With that said 1st pass 9.82 @ 135.
10.50 @ 136 with the tires blown up at launch.
3rd pass 9.35 @ 145 !!!! Car
is very fast and tracks perfectly !! Well done Ford !!!
Here are some pics I
will post a video if I ever figure out how to.
mustang 289 - Starter replacement
After a few freezing
weeks in Toronto I wanted to start my mustang, at first it turned on after a few
attempts and a ranting metal noice…all good. Then I turned it off and try
again…same noise and this time is not starting. I don’t think the problem is the
starter solenoid; I have had problems before with it and the clicking noise if
different. This is time is a ranting metal noise, the vent turns but not too
much and the battery is fine; so I think my old starter is giving up on me.
up my MT82 this weekend.
I was one of the ones defending the
MT82 in my Mustang. Mine shifted great. Then after 70k miles, I lost third gear.
It just disappeared. Not wanting to pay 2500+ for a new transmission that could
have it's own issues, I decided to tear it apart and find what was wrong. It was
a PITA. Needed a bunch of Ford pullers and other tools to get everything apart.
Bought the 20 ton press from harbor freight to help($150 with a coupon, sweet
deal). I'll probably have 600 bucks in the repair including all the tools.

Mustang Coupe Paint Job Question
I want to repaint
my 65 coupe. It doesn't have any rust and the bodywork would probably be
minimum, and the car was repainted by the previous owner some time ago, but its
time to repaint it for sure. Its black with red/burgundy stripes, and a
fiberglass Shelby style trunk, and a metal/fiberglass eleanor style hood. I
would like to do the same color (black) and same stripe setup (red/burgundy). I
am unsure what the cost could be so I'm trying to get an idea before I start
taking the car to different paint shops.
