Got Mustang Wed, 29 Jun 2022 08:39:55 +0000 en-US hourly 1 How to Bet on Motorsport Wed, 21 Nov 2018 10:08:18 +0000 Betting on motorsport has become much more popular in recent years, with the explosion in internet betting. While betting used to be seen as something that was predominately for horse racing fans, all sports now attract a large number of punters who want to place wagers. Motor sport is no different.

One of the simplest ways to bet on motorsport is to bet on the overall winner of a championship, such as the Formula 1 Drivers Championship. Another simple type of betting is to bet on the winner of a race. A variation of this is to bet on which drivers will finish on the podium in the first three places.

Another possibility is to bet on which driver out of two will finish higher in a race. This is a good type of betting for motorsport enthusiasts who follow individual drivers closely. Betting on which driver records the fastest lap time in a race is another interesting market to consider, especially if you have expert knowledge about the types of car being used by a certain team or driver.

You can pick up tips about betting on motorsport from the range of betting blogs and websites that are available nowadays.

Motorsport betting is like any other form of sports betting, in that the more you know about it, the better are your chances of placing successful bets. You should make sure that you stay as up-to-date as possible with the news from your favoured types of motor racing. Knowing about the new types of technology being deployed by teams, or how a driver is feeling, or even whether there have been any changes of personnel at a team, can all be very useful when it comes to betting. The more you know, the more winning bets you will place.

Alternatives to the Ford Mustang Tue, 06 Jan 2015 06:52:57 +0000 The Ford Mustang is iconic when it comes to American muscle cars, but it is certainly not without equal. Historically there have been many cars in the same class and many of those same cars have made the transition into modern times. Most of these are priced close enough to leave money out as a factor. If you’re looking for a modern muscle car, you’re buying based on features.

The Chevrolet Camaro is a valid alternative to the Ford Mustang. Both are available in v6 and v8 engine sizes of comparable horsepower and track times. Fuel mileage is, of course, equally terrible in all options but if you’re worried about that then you should be shopping for a Toyota Prius.

Dodge brought the Challenger back in 2008, its third iteration since inception. These two cars are so close in standard features, performance and price point that the ultimate deciding factor might be style choice or brand preference. Notable is the Challenger’s larger frame and curb weight that makes it slightly less nimble on the quarter mile and has less fuel economy with the plus of being able to fit five passengers instead of the Mustang’s four.

There are import options in the same price range as the Mustang. Although not muscle cars per say, the Hyundai Genesis, and the Subaru BZR offer considerable bang for the buck. The smaller liter engines rely heavily on turbo chargers, tuning and low curb weight in order to give comparable performance, however the Mustang beats all when it comes to raw power. Still, they are options if one doesn’t mind straying from American automakers.

History of the Ford Mustang Fri, 05 Dec 2014 07:23:41 +0000 The Ford Mustang is one of America’s most iconic automobiles, giving its name to a whole class of vehicle, the pony car. Here’s a look at its long history:

The early days says that the man behind the original Mustang was a vice-president at Ford, Lee Iacocca. His 1961 idea incorporated features for which the car would become known, ranging from its low starting price to its floor-mounted gear shift. There was debate within the company as to whether the car would be a success, but Iacocca won the day. The first Mustang was produced in March 1964 and was based heavily on the existing Ford Falcon in an effort to reduce costs. The car was an instant success, selling more than 400,000 units in its first year.

Into the Seventies

The first Mustang remained in production, with minor alterations, for a decade, but competitors were making it look old-fashioned by the 1970s. points out that the revised “Mustang II” launched for the 1974 model year was highly controversial. Performance levels were reduced: there was no longer a V8 unit, with four-cylinder or V6 blocks offered instead. As safety standards became more rigorous, Ford removed the convertible option. Nevertheless, the new car sold well in its early days.

Ford’s longest runner

The Mustang II soon lost popularity, selling just 150,000 units by 1978 despite the reintroduction of a V8 engine. Ford had to act, and in 1979 a revised car was launched. According to, the most obvious change was the upright, angular styling. This allowed four adults to sit comfortably inside, but also made the car look very different from its ancestors. One move that divided opinion was the decision to drop the famous “running horse” logo from the front grille. Again, sales began strongly but tailed off. Ford made major investments in the mid-1980s, especially in terms of better transmission and fuel injection.

Modern-day Mustangs

After 15 years of the existing Mustang, by 1994 it was time for another new model. The galloping horse returned – but, as Wikipedia states, it struggled to match the performance of the rival Chevrolet Camaro. Ford’s “New Edge” styling cues in 1999 helped a little and this generation continued until 2003, but was then replaced by the fifth-generation Mustang. This increasingly came to be seen as a niche vehicle, with sales never coming close to matching those of earlier pony cars. In 2009, just 66,000 Mustangs were sold, despite the car’s racing success. An all-new Mustang is scheduled for 2015.

Repairing a muscle car Thu, 13 Nov 2014 09:49:12 +0000 Repairing and restoring a muscle car, such as the 1966 Pontiac GTO, is a major project and an absorbing hobby, and it pays to spend a little time in planning and preparation. Restoration can be broken down into three phases: engine, paint and interior.

Organising your work space is crucial, and there are some essential pieces of equipment that will make your project much easier:


A mid-range air compressor will be essential to supply air to pneumatic sanders, wrenches and screwdrivers. If you plan to do your own paint job, it will supply air to air-fed masks worn when spraying in a booth.

Auto Body Kit

This will contain all you need to work on fenders and other body areas, and should include pullers and a rubber mallet.

Paint booth

If you intend to paint your muscle car yourself, and have the space in your workshop, constructing a paint booth is straightforward and will save you a great deal of money.

Trolley Jack and Jack Stands

You will need two trolley jacks, one for each end of the car, and a jack stand for each corner.

Vehicle Mover

It can be difficult to move a car in a confined space, but with a vehicle mover, a person working single-handed can move any car safely and efficiently. Stringo offer an extensive range of ergonomically-designed vehicle movers in sizes to meet every need. Vehicle movers are particularly useful for moving freshly-painted cars without disturbing the finish.

Engine Hoist

An engine hoist is needed to allow you to remove the engine safely, and to reinstall it after restoration.

Electrical Tester

Many older cars will have problems with electrical systems, and this can be one of the trickiest problems that muscle car restorers have to face. An electrical tester will allow you to check the electrical system and get your classic car back on the road all the sooner.

Pneumatic Sander

Possibly the most important part of a paint job is the preparation. Many old cars are badly rusted and will need hours of work to restore them to their original condition. Time and effort will be reduced by using an air sander.

Magnetic LED Lamp

A rechargeable, cordless, magnetic LED lamp can be clamped to any suitable service, such as the underside of the bonnet, and its bright white light will make many awkward jobs much easier.

Are pony cars muscle cars? Fri, 07 Nov 2014 22:43:53 +0000 Ever since the original pony car, the Ford Mustang, made its debut in 1964, car enthusiasts have debated the question of whether such cars can be considered muscle cars. This brief guide may help to reduce confusion.

What is a pony car?

According to, to qualify as a pony car, a vehicle must fulfill a certain number of criteria. It must have been made in the United States, have a low basic spec but with many upgrades available, and be able to seat four people despite having only two doors. Pony cars are also usually built with ordinary, rather than specialist, parts and share distinctive styling features such as an open-mouthed front and a long, low hood.

What is a muscle car?

To qualify as a muscle car, the Muscle Car Club states that a car should be an affordable, mid-sized or larger car with a strong focus on performance and a high-capacity V8 engine. The most important of these requirements is that of high performance: a more basic automobile on which more powerful models are based is unlikely to be recognized as a muscle car.


Although there is some overlap between the strict definitions of a pony car and a muscle car, the two types are clearly distinct. Crucial differences pinpointed by Zero to 60 Times include body size: pony cars are mid-size or smaller, whereas muscle cars may be considerably larger. Pony cars also use the smaller engines in a range, rather than the outright power that muscle cars boast. Used more loosely, the term “muscle car” can include pony cars, although the same is not true in reverse.

Pony Cars Other Than the Ford Mustang Sat, 01 Nov 2014 23:39:26 +0000 While the Ford Mustang is seen as the most popular in the line of so-called “pony cars” that are available, there are indeed others which offer just as much style, sophistication and raw power. Let us have a brief examination of a few additional varieties and the benefits that they can provide the owner.

The Chevrolet Camaro

Known as one of the first muscle cars, the Camaro can trace its roots back to 1967 when this iconic variety first rolled off of the assembly line. Four different generations have been produced since its inception and the fifth generation was recently introduced in 2009. The Camaro can often be seen in racing movies and at car shows; its distinctive appearance is perhaps one of the most well known in the entire industry.

The Dodge Challenger

The Challenger was first seen as far back as 1958 and it is still making headlines today. Known for its very masculine appearance alongside a respectable amount of horsepower, this car could often be seen within street races. The third generation was made public in 2008 and it was intended to present a very real “challenge” to the Mustang and the Camaro.

The Firebird Trans Am

The Pontiac Firebird Trans Am was made popular by the television series Knight Rider which was a classic programme in the 1980s. A sleek appearance and the addition of a spoiler on later models were some of the highlights of this two-door convertible and thanks to such a large commercial presence, the Trans Am is considered to be one of the must-have cars for collectors. While this model enjoyed no less than three generations of production, the last vehicles were built in 2002.

These three pony cars are indeed alluring in their own unique ways. While the Mustang may have been the predecessor, there is no doubt that each and every one of these models have made lasting impressions upon the automobile industry.

Ford Mustang Tue, 07 Oct 2014 10:55:56 +0000 One of the truly iconic American motor cars ever produced, the Ford Mustang has gone through five generations since its launch in 1964, with a sixth version planned for 2015. Early models achieved celebrity status in the US, with the famous chase scene in Bullitt featuring a Mustang driven by Steve McQueen. The car has even been used in a US Navy poster, which claimed that the car was a part of American life worth fighting for!

Design and Sales

Chromed-rims-on-a-mustangSales of the Mustang hit impressive heights in the 1960s, with more than half a million models sold in both 1965 and 1966. Productiona nd sales have tailed off since those heady days, but the Mustang continues to enjoy healthy sales and its latest models have won awards for both design and performance. The first Mustang model was the first car ever to take away the coveted Tiffany Gold Medal, reflecting American design excellence, and has captured various ‘car of the year’ and ‘best car to drive’ awards in each of the five decades since it first appeared.

A Track Star

The Mustang isn’t just an eye-catching road car, however, but has featured prominently in many motor racing series. The car has conquered both oval track and road race championships, and in 2011 the Mustang made its long-awaited debuted in the popular NASCAR series.

Look and feel

The very first Mustang models were two seater roadsters, but poor sales led very quickly to the introduction of both 4 seat and “2+2” variants, featuring roomy interiors while still maintaining a sleek, stylish appearance. A wide range of sporty models have been introduced, which provide superior performance (though to the detriment of fuel economy!). Differing body styles and features were introduced through the second and third generation Mustangs before a significant redesign followed with the launch of the fourth generation in 1994.

Car of the Future

The sixth generation Mustang, set for release in 2015, boasting a sleek modern look coupled with the legendary performance – the car will be rolled out to more than 1200 countries, and is expected to gain new fans across Asia and Europe. One of the most renowned cars of the 20th century shows no signs of disappearing from our roads just yet!
