Project Ugly Horse alive and kicking at Road & Track

The hallways of the Autoblog campus are much quieter now that Zach Bowman has taken his prose, along with his welders, wrenches and hammers, over to the digital pages of Road & Track, but that doesn't mean our favorite project Mustang is gone forever. Project Ugly Horse is still coming along, and Zach has gifted us another update on his unfoxy Fox Body.

Last we saw of the Ugly Horse, Zach was strengthening up the '89 Mustang's chassis as he prepares to stuff the turbocharged, direct-injected EcoBoost engine of a Ford Focus ST under the hood. First things first, the old mill must go. Head on over to Road & Track to catch the latest chapter of Project Ugly Horse.

Hot or Not? The Latest 2015 Mustang Rendering

2015 Mustang Rendered - Hot or Not

Vote and let the Mustang community know what you think of the latest 2015 Mustang rendering!

Note: There is a poll embedded within this post, please visit the site to participate in this post's poll.

Some love it and other hate it, so we’re leaving it up to the Mustang community to decide what to think of this interpretation of the next generation, 2015 Ford Mustang. Based off the recent front end revealing spy photos, this artist’s rendering brings in much of the front and side angle designs shown on current 2015 prototypes and in spy photos, along with some guesswork when designing the rear. Even with a set of Ford EVOs rims, this S550 still retains a muscular look and is easily distinguished as being a Mustang.

For the latest details and information on the next generation Mustang, head over to the 2015 Mustang news section and get the inside scoop on everything from the engine lineup to testing videos and more. If you like what you see and plan on bringing one of these muscle cars home the second they become available, be sure to check our 2015 Mustang parts page for the latest aftermarket parts as they hit the shelves!

So, HOT or NOT?

Auto critic calls out Corvette, Mustang and Cherokee faithful

Filed under: , , , , , , ,

2014 Chevy Corvette

Most automotive purists fear change, but not without reason. Change, after all, did kill big-block V8s, along with most station wagons and manual transmissions. But change has also brought with it far more performance, safety and fuel economy - not to mention ridding the world of shag carpet interiors, bias-ply tires and those horrible motorized seatbelts of the early '90s.

By this time next year, the Chevy Corvette, Jeep Cherokee and next-generation Ford Mustang will all be on sale and will all, in some way, have angered or offended purists. To those critics, Mark Phelan of the Detroit Free Press is preemptively telling them to stop complaining - at least until they've all been driven. From the Corvette's square taillights and the Cherokee's radical nose to whatever pony car purists will harp on the 2015 Mustang for, Phelan's column points out the positives of automotive evolution and the negatives of staying the course for too long. That's fair enough, but do you think Phelan is on point, or all wet? Head on over to the Detroit Free Press to read his words, then have your say in Comments.
