Back To Work

Adam is now back from SEMA 2019 and he says that he misses the rain and moaning of politics in the UK. It was a busy time out there this year with lots of meetings and appointments, some of which we hope to see the fruits of those labours soon. Adam also caught up with friends for a few days and and then for a little personal holiday time. Yogi has been been attending to some personal matters, (no he doesn’t need cream for it!) With his hectic schedule as well he hasn’t been in his bear cave as much as he would liked over the last couple of weeks or so. But we can show you some of what has been going on.

Customer Cars

The engine swap out has progressed well and Yogi has been doing his thing with the brake lines as well.

Obviously the plumbing and wire work needs to be completed yet. The Gearbox is in the process of being reconditioned and shouldn’t be to long before we can road test this little lady.

Project Car

The little secret Resto-Mod has taken a little more shape with some fitting, filler and fettling taking place.

This should be a nice steady project over the weekend for the bear.

WebShop

This has now been updated with regards to the sheet metal. Unless you are trade and have a particular log on the general public will not be able to buy the fenders, floor panels now. When you try order these parts you will be meet with similar notifications.

It’s a shame that a few ignoramus have ruined it for the many. But, our business model can’t sustain shipping and replacements parts at our expense because a customer doesn’t know what they are buying. On a couple of occasions now we have actually sold sheet metal parts at a loss to the business in order to maintain full customer service satisfaction, when in fact nothing was wrong with our service or indeed the parts supplied.

We hope you understand.

Electrifying News

Ford has finally released the details of the Mustang Mach-E. There has been much debate on the forums saying they don’t like it as it’s not a Mustang because it has 4 doors etc, or there is no v8. We can’t possible say one way or the other, but there is no V8 and yes it will go like hell. But is it a Mustang – that debate will rage on for a while yet! But, here is what ford says;

“For the first time in 55 years, Ford is expanding the Mustang family, bringing the famous pony into the electric age with Mustang Mach-E, an all-new, all-electric SUV born of the same free-spirited ideals that inspired the best-selling sports coupe in the world.

Mustang represents freedom, progress, fast performance and a touch of rebellion. Now, Mustang is ready to reimagine these ideas for a powerful electric future, with space for customers’ growing needs and advanced over-the-air updates that continue to improve the vehicle.

“At the first-ever Detroit auto show, Henry Ford said he was working on something that would strike like forked lightning,” said Bill Ford, executive chairman, Ford Motor Company. “That was the Model-T. Today, the Ford Motor Company is proud to unveil a car that strikes like forked lightning all over again. The all-new, all-electric, Mustang Mach-E. It’s fast. It’s fun. It’s freedom. For a new generation of Mustang owners.”

Ford brought the Mustang Mach-E to life through a development process concentrated entirely on customer needs and desires. The result is a sleek, beautiful SUV that delivers spirited ride and handling, with state-of-the-art connected vehicle technology that makes Mustang Mach-E even better over time.

When it arrives in late 2020, Mustang Mach-E will be available with standard and extended-range battery options with either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive powered by permanent magnet motors. Equipped with an extended-range battery and rear-wheel drive, Mustang Mach‑E has a targeted pure-electric driving range of up to 600 km (more than 370 miles) according to the World Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP).1 In extended-range all-wheel drive configurations, Mustang Mach-E is targeting 337 PS (248 kW) and 565 Nm of torque.

Ford also will offer a special performance version. The Mustang Mach-E GT is targeting 0-to-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration in less than 5 seconds,2 as well as an estimated 465 PS (342 kW) and 830 Nm of torque.

“The Mustang Mach-E is one of the most exciting vehicles Ford has ever introduced,” said Stuart Rowley, president, Ford of Europe. “This purpose-built all-electric vehicle is unique, but still unmistakably a Mustang, and it’s coming at exactly the right time for customers in Europe.””

What do you think either as an owner of a classic or new Mustang, or just a reader?

  1. I don’t blame you for trade only sheet metal. Even some trade dont actually know what they are doing either considering some of the restorations I have seen coming into you guys to put right.
    As for the electric Mustang, it needs to have soul not just similar lights or design. Jury is out for me still.

    I agree with Mart. Does the Mustang mach – E sounds like a V8 mustang?
