Ford GT40 Home

Some might say owning / driving a GT40 is better than having sex, and those who do say it to their spouses find themselves suddenly having none. So, if you are lucky enough to have a set of keys in your pocket belonging to the iconic Le Mans racer what would you do? Park it in a garage, or risk leaving it rotting in a trailer? Why not convert your garage into a loft and fall asleep each night with the lights just behold the GT’s amazing curves? Let’s face it; it’s a car you could build a Cathedral around. And you might as well. You already said it was better than sex and are sleeping alone anyway. You might as well enjoy your obsession while you can (the divorce papers are on the way).

2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302

Sure, the 5.0L returned for the revamped 2011 Mustang GT, but the 412 horsepower only put the Pony even with the Camaro… not in front. Ford fans were happy enough with the Coyote 5.0L engine, but worried that the new motor would be over shadowed with Chevrolet planning to tune the 6.2L SS and offer a supercharged Z28 for 2012. But Ford stepped up to the plate and brought back the Boss for 2012: The all new 440 HP Mustang Boss 302.

Its been more than 40 years since a Mustang bore the Boss insignia. “Boss is a hallowed word around here, and we couldn’t put that name on a new Mustang until we were sure everything was in place to make this car a worthy successor,” explains Dave Pericak, Mustang chief engineer.. “We were either going to do it right or not do it at all – no one on the team was going to let Boss become a sticker and wheel package.” Continue reading
