Two of the greatest cars I've ever owned. My 1990 Ford Taurus SHO, highly modified, up against my 2005 Ford Mustang GT, bone stock. Both are five speed manuals. Mustang had 300HP stock (factory crankpower spec). Taurus had roughly 254HP modified (crank horsepower calculation based on Dynoplot). I had decided to trim my fleet a bit and list the SHO for sale, $3,000/OBO. After the testdrive here, the buyer said "no negotiations necessary, I'll give you full asking price."
Ford Taurus SHO 130,00 miles 0-95
It was a nice, cool, low humidity day. Perfect fall day for a 0-95 run.
Note the count doesn't start till :10 seconds. I've done a few mods. I gave
this car to my Wife now. I still enjoy to drive it now and then.
1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
• Gordon Tronson
In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as
big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as
"Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated
from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with
four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for
an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the
rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling
a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all
your naughty bits tingle.

2010 SHO vs 2010 Camaro SS
In Luskville, west of Ottawa, Canada. Second portion of 1/4 mile was in
bad shape, very bumpy! The trap speed are slower by about 2mph because of
I started late R/T of .349 for SHO and .03 for the SS :
SHO = 12.74 at 108mph (intake, Exhaust, suspension and tune LMS stage 4+)
SS = 12.85 at 110mph (intake and tune)
We ran all day together and I was consistent with my 12,7's, but he ran
anywhere between 12.76 and 13.85, depending on his launch. On that race,
he had a good launch.... As for the SHO, it is AWD,so no excuses. : )
Ford GT Inspection: Should we buy or not?
Today I'm traveling to Pittsburgh, PA for the day to inspect a Ford GT
before a potential purchase for a client. Lots of research was done prior
to my trip, but I need to verify the fact in person before giving my
recommendation or encouraging the buyer to walk away. Let me know your
thoughts...should it be a buy or a walk? (based solely on condition. Price
is obviously still remains to be determined)
