Here Is That SOHC Head Mustang That You’ve Always Wanted

Remember how you always wanted to have an old 4-speed Mustang, painted orange, with a super rare SOHC head engine in it? Well, now is your chance, and you currently have 1 day left to think about it. There is only one problem, such greatness does not come cheap. You’ll have to grab a few extra hours of overtime in the weeks ahead to cover the nominal $765,000 asking price for this fully documented A/FX Holman Moody Mustang. Just imagine how fun shifting gears while in a wheelie would be.  Ebay Item Number: 260898918761

But wait, there’s more!  Here are more Pictures and History if you are hooked.

Wait, They Are Making Zimmer’s Out Of Mustangs Now?

Every now and then I catch a tiny glimpse of a classic luxury vehicle whizzing by. I quickly react by whipping my head around, and instantly realize that I have been tricked again by a Zimmer. So… Many… Times… Zimmer. Since their beginnings in the late 1970′s, they have been based on Cadillacs, Buicks, Oldsmobiles, and other large American rear wheel drive cars. Factory body work is removed from the donor vehicle, and the new Zimmer body is grafted on.  Before long, you’ve got a super long, low, “modern” classic.

Fast forward to today, and I notice this eBay Listing.  It’s a relatively new Zimmer that is based on a Mustang GT fastback. What the what?  I can’t say whether I’m impressed or depressed about it, but I know it surprised me.  See for yourself and let me know what you think.  Love it?  Hate it?  Buy it?

1966 Ford MustaBird Now For Sale

There is no shortage of oddities on Craigslist these days.  Sometimes you find the deal of the century and other times you find a ThunderStang, or is it a MustaBird?  Either way, the owner says:

What we have here is a 1966 Mustang.. sort of. The body and doors have been shortened by about 20″, and made to resemble an early T-Bird. The car was originally ‘modified’ 20+ years ago, then was ‘rebuilt’ after that. It now sits with NO ENGINE nor TRANS! The shortened drive shaft is still there. Needs total restoration. Was a 2-time World of Wheels winner in a previous life. I found it with thoughts of restoring it. I’ve decided to sell it instead. Hood is fiberglass. You will be buying a shell.

For 12 Benjamins, I can’t say that this is a bad deal. I mean where else are you going to find a BirdStang for less? I’ll tell you, you won’t. Somebody needs to snatch this thing up, drop a 429 in it and love life. Will that person be you?

Here is the Craigslist Listing

Special Thanks to Joe L. for spotting this little gem… and I do mean little.

Mustang Club Video From Poland: Caution – Burnout Content.

Mustangs

Here in the United States, we are known for our undying love of big American cars with big V8′s.  There is something special about burying your foot into the floor board of a V8 powered car and feeling the tires rip away at the pavement as the white cloud of smoke billows out from the rear quarter panels.  It’s passion.  What you may not realize though, is that some other countries have just as much passion for these big American V8′s as we do.  This video was apparently filmed in Poland by a Mustang car club member.  It is really quite a fantastic video.  I have watched it a few times, and it definitely makes me wonder if I need more Mustang in my life.

Can’t see the video?  Here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yj1kBHcAbzw

Most vs. Least Expensive Cars on eBay. 9/24

9/24 Most Expensive Car on EBay.

Vehicle: 2008 Koenigsegg CCX # 220669611666

Buy it Now Price: $1,250,000.00

Owner Says: “Automotive experts agree the CCX is as sweet as supercars come, and for more reasons than just its 3.2-second rip from 0 to 60 miles an hour; its quarter-mile run in 9.9 seconds at 146 m.p.h.; or its roughly 245 m.p.h. top speed.”

My Thoughts:  I could buy 2000+ Pontiac Fieros for this price.   2000 cars or 1….. hmmm. Not sure.


9/24 Least Expensive Car on EBay.

Vehicle: 1965 Ford Mustang # 230527525981

Buy it Now Price: $200

Owner Says: “For your consideration is a 1965 Mustang Shell. Most of the parts have been removed. It still has the rearend, and front suspension as well as the wheels. The quarter panels have some rust in the bottoms. The quarter windows are still there and lots of various other parts including: Steering column, Brake Assembly, Heater Motor. The floors are in decent shape. The roof is not usable.”

My Thoughts: In New England, normally the roof is the only good part of an old car. Apparently in Oregon, not even the roofs are safe!
