Ride, Mustang, Ride

Update by J.G. Pasterjak to the Ford Mustang GT project car
Jan 3, 2002

We have been wanting to do a V8-powered project car for some time, and the stars and the moon finally got into the correct alignment to send a 1990 Ford Mustang GT into our lives. The car already has a brand-new 5.0 HO crate engine under the hood, fortified with a Ford Motorsport “B-grind” camshaft, shorty headers and some other tricks.

The rest of the Mustang is a little on the tired side, however, making this the perfect starting point for a project car series. The stock, worn-out brakes couldn’t even last one lap at our new test site, although the car did post 14-second runs at the drag strip, even with the blown limited-slip, 2.73:1 gears and junk tires doing everything possible to slow us down.

We’re still gathering information and putting together a plan, but Baer, Steeda Autosports, Unorthodox Racing and Tokico will be involved.
