We’re Back

The first post of 2023 and we wish all our readers and customers a Happy New Year, lets hope this year is an improvement on last year. Although we haven’t posted for a couple of weeks over the holidays we have been very busy behind the scenes. The WebShop has had a stock take as we have had some large deliveries which we will show you later in the post.

Customer Cars

The super charged ’67 is now completed and we’re happy with it. She starts on on the button and runs super sweet.

Inside the car we have the control screens and shows a complete wealth of information for what ever you need to know. Unfortunately the soft tones of the dials and screens don’t capture very well on a phone camera.

The engine bay has a lot going on under there and Yogi took some time to make it look as good as it goes!

The owner is going to love this little lady, that’s for sure.

Our Cars

Our ’65 Ranchero has continued with the dismantling process in order to see exactly what we have to work with and it’s surprising solid.

We only have a couple of little spots that can be easily patched just behind the cab. The other is the usual place in the footwell.

The panels are in great shape and have started to be de-trimmed ready for their refresh.

WebShop

Adam has started to stock up on the exhausts kits we have. Everything from a ear drum busting performance to cruiser (and neighbour) friendly kits.

Our WebShop stock itinerary is now accurate, if it the item says it’s in stock, then no reason to email asking as it will be in stock. We are constantly adding to our own brand products which are not available elsewhere. click here for the link. We have everything from rear end lowing kits, ’03 fog lamp repair, LED dual bulbs, progressive front springs, various brass brake fittings, locking 64-70 transmission handles.

The Sad Passing of Ken Block

It’s with sad news that we learned the sad passing of Ken Block the rally driver and Hoonigan Gymkhana pioneer.

Adam had meet Ken a few times, he had spoken to him at SEMA when the first Mustang Hoonigan was born. Adam like so many other people that met him confirms that he was indeed such a nice guy.

We of course were huge fans, not just because of our Ford links, but also the the creation of the now legendary 1965 RTR Hoonigan.

R.I.P. Ken Block

Keep ripping up the tarmac in the great race track in the sky.

All us here at Mustang Maniac would like to send our sincere condolences to Ken’s family and friends.

Ford have issued a tribute to Ken.

For a decade, Ken Block pushed his Fords to, and sometimes past, their limits. His legendary driving performances created some of the most thrilling pursuits ever witnessed while bringing the thrill of Ford Performance vehicles to a whole new generation of car buyers. Sadly, Ken was tragically killed in a snowmobiling accident earlier this week. He was revered by Ford employees during his time with the Blue Oval, one of which who won a signed pair of Ken’s gloves in a contest on @FordOnline. Ken also took several respected Ford bosses for a spin in the Edge ST in recognition of “National Boss’s Day.” During a visit to the Dearborn campus, he sat down for an in-depth discussion about his career.

Just visit YouTube for some stunning videos of Ken Block thrashing cars.

Stay Safe & Take Care!

    PS. The guys at Ford back in the day must have used some hellish tough metal guys, given that after all of these years you still have great metal to work with guys!!!

    • Thanks Simon. The metal used back then is just awesome. There is no comparison to today’s replacements. The shop truck drives amazing as well, I think everybody who has driven it falls in love with it.
