Don’t take their word for it!

This week has been mainly focused on diagnostics of problems. Yogi is still on his well-earned break in a cave somewhere in Canada. Adam has some new stock and has had to make space for all those parts now too. So without wasting any more time let’s get to the first issue.

Customer Cars:

A car had been brought into us to be put back on the road after it had been standing for twenty-five years! The guy who sold it told our customer that the Engine was fine and managed to fire it up for a minute or so then switched it off. the gearbox and the rear axle were both fine. What happened we put the car back together on the instructions of the customer. After a couple of hundred miles of the restored car the rear axle seized and needed replacing. The gearbox is difficult for third and fourth gears and just about usable once you get the “knack” of it. and the most recent issue,  big over heating problems. To work out the problem with the engine was a bit of a mystery. The new aluminium radiator was flushed out and some muddy residue was seen at the drain point. Water pressure test was done and found the flow was not consistent across the radiator itself. The problem was still there. So we had not other choice to check the waterways and took the heads of to see exactly what was going on. We soon found the problem:

Blocked water ways was the cause. We had to clean them up and reconditioned them.

We even took a quick video of the blocked waterways both on the block and the heads, in fact it was one of the worst we have seen. the video is only a few seconds long but you get the idea.

We managed to clean and flush the block out – with Adams own secret concoction. The radiator was re-plumbed and filled back up with water and flushed again. After all that – the car runs smoother, and runs slightly cooler than normal now. Success, but would have been a lot easier if the engine was checked by us before fitting. So if somebody says it’s fine after sitting around – get it checked out first. That is a lot of man hours gone into this fault-finding which all could have been avoided if little work had been done first time round! But you can take our word for that piece of advise though.

We have another returning for a little Mustang Maniac magic and a service. We just managed to get her under cover as the heavy rain fell.

This car has some rather nice wheels on just like the Eleanor in 17″.

WebShop

We have some upgrades to the WebShop which are now up and running. The upgrade is a now a video section on the item page in order to show you what the item. This is things like the sequential LEDs for the 2015 Mustang click here for the link or past this to your browser https://mustangmaniac.co.uk/part/36/8996/15_sequential_front_led  this allows you to see the items working before you buy. Another first for Mustang Maniac!

Complaint? 

We sell many of these suspension control arms, we fit them and use them. The last two weeks we have two sets returned for the same reason with a complaint.

The reason is that they had seized up straight after fitting and a test drive. Adam took them straight to the workshop and found the “problem” straight away. This is a very simple answer, the joints had NOT been greased before use. The ball joints need to be fully loaded with grease and that is common sense and the grease nipple is a bit of a clue. The rubbers were pulled back to expose the fitting grease was there only, and not been filled with grease.

So, the parts are NOT faulty at all. Adam has refunded the money out of the goodness of his heart, but he now will be careful about supplying parts to these customers in future. As these parts are now technically used, they can’t be sold as new obviously, it’s just as well that  Adam has a couple of project cars that they will be fitted too now. If in doubt about these sort of parts – please seek professional help before blaming the parts.

Storage

Adam has now had to create storage for his expanding part lines. The new racking is for the clutches that are bulky and heavy. In fact from what we can tell here at mustang maniac – these clutches are the only ones “In Stock” in the UK.

Adam has also had some bespoke racks made for the more delicate parts such as the window trims that can easily be dented as well as storage for the more awkward items like the radiator shrouds.

Fender Guards

Adam has a new line of fender covers, which are already in use in the workshops and we love them. They cover the complete area around the engine bay.

As Adam says “They ain’t cheap, but it’s a lot cheaper than a respray!” We agree and the part can found by click here, or paste the link to the browser.

Weddings:

Thanks to Paul for sending us in a couple of pics of his car used for a wedding:

The Office

Adam has put up his sign in the office for the “quoted” receipt. A couple of Adam’s lady customers were a little put out (said in jest by the way), that they couldn’t have the same. So Adam is now looking to get one done for the wives to match. And yes, they do accidentally underestimate – just like the men do! 😉

In case you can’t remember:

In fact Adam didn’t charge for the first request to make use of this new facility!

We would like to send our thoughts and best wishes out to all the people who are having to deal with the aftermath of the recent Hurricanes.

 

The Jobsworth

We have been asked about a car we had with us at a recent car show, but we will get to that a little later along with a story about a “Jobsworth”, in other words, a somebody who had nothing better to do with their time other than enforce a petty rule. But we start again this week with the Park & Ride car on the post.

Park & Pic:

Derek has owned the car for a while now and has been gradually doing little jobs here and there on her. But after a look at the quality of work we do here, the car has been booked in with us to complete an ever extending list of upgrades and bit of under hood bling.

The Grinch:

This car is a real like it or loath it restoration or “Restomod” that took six years to complete by our very own Yogi including the awesome paint job, just before he joined our ranks at MM. We love this car it has to be said and is a rare and genuine S code 390GT with all matching numbers.

grinch1

The modifications to the car are subtle and obvious at the same time. Under the hood there is no wire loom. The engine is ported out via a pair of ear drum busting Flowmasters that makes the big block V8 sound like it has a seriously bad attitude. The steering and suspension are total control setup, which is certainly required for this beast of a car.

The bodywork modifications are obvious at the rear with the well known Shelby look. The front cowl section has been removed and replaced with sheet metal to give the continuation of the hood to the glass. The rear vents have also been removed and plated up to give a smooth flowing line to the trunk lid.

Inside the quarter stick shift is automatic with a racing setup and it needs it. The sound system matches the engine and looks like the car.

Petty Rules?

Ken is Adam’s dad and still owns the very first Mustang that Adam restored before Adam’s passion had evolved into the trade leading Mustang Maniac company. The start of the story is that Adam bought his dad a set of number plates with the classic Playboy logo on them, after a bit of in joke while they visited Las Vegas over twenty years ago. The plates have been on the car ever since without a single problem.

Ken bought the car back down to Adam to have some new wheels on her along with a service at the same time. On way down from the Midlands, the local police constabulary decided to pull Ken over for his number plates. Obviously said individual had nothing better to do, like catching terrorists and murderers, oh no. They chase people for the serious crime of a logo on a registration plate. Nobody in the twenty years that they had been on the car has ever mentioned them before. So now the plates have been changed and Ken was left to feel like a criminal at the time. It’s not as though the car is driven for hundreds of miles everyday!

So we now have Ken’s official mug shot!

The wheels look great and he went for the classic styled four stud look, but in the modern alloy, which is part of the new range on our WebShop.

WebShop:

We have uploaded a new video to our YouTube channel for the new stock for the 2015 – 2016 Mustangs for the front LED sequential indicator lights.

Another Prototype:

We have a one-off, bespoke, custom-made pair of smoked rear lenses. We had some clear ones made a little while ago and the reader poll showed us they were not as popular as we thought they would be, even though we sold the small stock we had. So now we now have something the opposite way around – smoked.

The question would be what do they look like in use? The video here shows you just that:

We have another poll for you, would you buy them if we got them made and kept them in stock?

Please vote and let us know.

It’s A Bloke Thing!

During the week we have been asked what has happened to the Park & Pic posts, so not to disappoint we have one today for you. We have to admit we have been slacking a little in this area as not all the cars are collected from the front of the office, most are picked up from the yard to be fair. So we start with that this week:

Park & Pic:

This genuine 67 390 GT  is owned by Ross and is a beautiful Concours correct car.

The car was brought to us as she was running a little lumpy at speed so Yogi got to work on it and first things first, the timing. The timing was out enough to cause the problem so that was adjusted to the correct settings. Then Yogi worked his dark art magic on the carb for a tune up which again was running a little rich. Now the engine idled nicely and revved up smoothly.

While Yogi was doing what he does best, Ross mentioned that he had visited a show hosted by a well know Mustang Owners Club based here in the UK. He then went on to explain that he was docked a point for an “incorrect HT (spark plug) lead”. Pointed out here by the arrow.

Yogi said this was in fact correct.  Once Adam had finished dealing with customers in the office, the same point was raised again, Adam also confirmed this is absolutely correct and went on to explain why. This was backed up by a Concours Correct part that Adam got from the stores, just to prove the point. Adam also took the inserted label out of the sealed part bag in order to photograph it.

The insert confirms what Adam had just been explaining. “During the production line process a number of engines had a miss fire straight from the line. Ford launched an immediate investigation and it was later found that the workers had swapped the fifth and sixth cylinder leads around the wrong way. Needless to say this caused Ford multiple delays on the production line as well as having to fix the relatively simple error. Like all things, the simple answer was to identify the correct wire. So the Orange boot was created to cure the problem, which it did instantly with the very first cars with the new system rolling of the production line, no more misfires.”

So we have a couple of questions for the judges of the Mustang Owners Club in question. Firstly; how come you didn’t know this fact? Secondly; can Ross have his point back again?

WebShop:

Oils

Adam has had a request in to stock a particular brand of oil called “Driven”. Adam investigated and has spoken to them and now is a stockist for their products. Adam has stopped selling the Kroon product now, but still keeping the popular Kendall products. These oils are a premium product and their slightly higher costs reflects that, so if you are running down the Santa Pod quarter-mile or you inadvertently leave some large rubber trails when leaving the lights, these oils will protect your engine, gearbox, brake fluids, break in oils etc.

Wheels

A new line of  wheels for the more “resto mod” look. These Magnums are 17″ x 7 ” or 17″ x 8″ in Satin black. We have already sold a set within the first week and has generated some keen interest.

Water Pumps

Adam has purchased a huge stock of multiple water pumps, and as far as we know, Mustang Maniac has the only supplies of i6 classic mustang water pumps. The rest of the stock has yet to be bought to the stores and a shelf is expected to go up and hold the additional pumps.

2015 – 16 Mustangs

Not to leave out the newer Mustangs, Adam has a new line of roof spoilers for the 2015/16 models. This simple to fit accessory creates a nice finish to the roof lines of the car. This spoiler also shields the high level brake lights from the sun (when we get it in the UK that is), and makes them a more of a contrasted to see.

Before:

After:

To finish up with we have a strange title for this post? No not really, about sixteen years ago Adam bought his new Ford truck with the Harley Davidson livery, at the same time there was a strictly limited edition of Harleys made to match the truck. So Adam bought that as well. Since Adam has owned it he has only done one hundred miles on it.To keep it in ind condition he had an idea!

Yep, this is now part of the BBQ chill out area. So, if you’re lucky enough to be at one of Adam’s little curry nights, you too could get to stare at a pristine limited edition Harley. Adam has to finish the case build yet, with the addition of LED lighting and some rather fancy ideas about pop up electric and phone charging points!

Is it just a bloke thing? We could of course be wrong!

NSRA Show 2017

Last weekend Mustang Maniac and friends headed out to the National Street Rod Association show in Bedfordshire which is always a good day out and a popular show. The sun was out and so was the vast array of cars that turned up. So without much more waffling from us, here are some of the pics from the show:

Adam just can’t seem to get away from “that” John Wick by the car pose!

Yogi was chillin’ and says his new foot attire matches his car!

WebShop:

We have had a first sample or trial of some new ’64 – ’66 tail light lenses. These are clear and look best on the LED Euro boards we stock. Now we can imagine that you either love these or hate them. So thanks to Lance who kindly took them of our hands to try them in his ’65.

Let us know your thoughts on the clear lenses – do we stock them or not? Our customers yet again get to decide for us. 🙂

Please vote and let us know what you think.

Customer Cars:

We had a nice ’67 in the classic Highland Green in our workshops, as seems to be the case now days this was taken apart, but the rebuild was a bit too much so we were tasked with putting her back to together again.

’65 home made parts

We had to sort out an issue on a ’65 coupe that had issue with the gearbox member. We soon found out why – as it was a home-made part. not a bad effort, but hardly ideal. We suspect that the time and effort to make it would have been more than the replacement part itself.

What Adam Didn’t Say:

“Thanks” to facebook (sarcastic overtones intended, with the lower case letter as it doesn’t deserve its correct name), Adam’s well known name of “Mustang Man” has now been rejected after TEN YEARS! To say that Adam wasn’t to happy was an understatement. So we can’t actually put what Adam said about them. But, those who know Adam will know exactly what he may or may not have said! As a result Adam has now had to choose another name, a Mr. Wayne Kerr is now on facebook. So if the facebook dictatorship decides to reject this name as well, Adam will not be on facebook anymore! This change for no real reason after TEN YEARS, has also caused config issues with the blog as well. Rant over! (Did we mention that name has been in use for TEN Years?)

What Adam did Say:

That having children or grand children all need to be brought up correctly by having an appreciation of American cars:

We think a booster seat may be needed in this case though!

In A Galaxie Far Far Away

Well it’s not so far away as you think, it’s Mustang Maniac headquarters actually. Adam has increased his stock levels again, not just in the WebShop we are talking about his expanding fleet of classic cars. Adam owns a fair number of Mustangs, Shelbys, Falcons, Fairlane and now a Galaxie 500!

This new addition is pretty much as it was on the day it was built, apart from the wheels and few under hood tweaks we come to expect these days.

Until you sit inside one of these beasts it’s hard to imagine just how big the car actually is! This is a change from the usual Ford builds as the Galaxie had a full chassis and a body shell that sat on top of it. So under body work can be quite easy to sort out, providing you have the equipment to take the body off. When Adam was asked what are you going to do with it? “I’m not sure yet, but I’m looking forward to doing what ever it is.” The car drives nice and is solid, the engine is fine, but has a misfire when cold, nothing we can’t handle of course. For now this huge car is taking up plenty of space in the shed.

A customer who saw the size of the trunk said, “You could rent that out as a mobile home, or divide it into two and rent out a couple of Semis.”

The interior is fantastic place to be, with a full bench seat that feel like an old friend arm-chair.

The dash has a light found on some of the Ford models, a “Cold light” to the right of the clock. This was to warn you the engine was (obviously) cold and not up to full operating temperature. Until then they can be a little “grumpy” as they are sometimes referred too. To be honest that goes for most cars.

And the copious spaced engine bay.

A little history of the Galaxie 500 1965 – 1968:

The 1965 Galaxie was an all-new design, featuring vertically stacked dual headlights. The cars were taller and bulkier than the previous year’s. The new top-of-the-line designation was the Galaxie 500 LTD. Engine choices were the same as 1964, except for an all-new 240 cu in (3.9 L) six-cylinder engine replacing the 1950s-era 223 “Mileage-Maker” six and the 352 was now equipped with dual exhausts and a four-barrel carburetor.

Suspension on the 1965 models was redesigned. Replacing the former leaf-spring rear suspension was a new three-link system, with coil springs. Interiors featured a new instrument panel and two-way key system were introduced. The introduction of two keys was for valet parking, in that the rounded head key would only open the trunk or locked glove compartment, while the squared head key would unlock the doors and the ignition.

A new model was introduced for 1966; the Galaxie 500 7 Litre, fitted with a new engine, the 345 hp 428 cu in (7.0 L) Thunderbird V8. This engine was also available on the Ford Thunderbird. The police versions received a 360 hp version of the 428 known as the ‘Police Interceptor’ as police cars. The 1966 body style was introduced in Brazil as a 1967 model; it had the same external dimensions throughout its lifetime until Brazilian production ended in 1983. Safety regulations for 1966 required seat belts front and rear on all new cars sold domestically. The Galaxie 500 would be the #3-selling convertible in the U.S. in 1966, with 27,454 sold; it was beaten by the Mustang (at 72,119, by more than 2:1) and by the Impala at 38,000. A parking brake light on the dashboard and an AM/FM radio was optional. The 1966 LTD dropped the Galaxie name.

For 1967, the 7 Litre model no longer carried the Galaxie name; it was to be the last year of it being separately identified. That identification was mainly trim such as horn ring and dashboard markings as well as the “Q” in the Vehicle Identification Number. The 7 Litre for 1967 was a trim and performance option on the Ford XL, which was now a separate model as well. Little else changed, except for trim and the styling; the same engines were available, from the 240 cu. inch six-cylinder to the 428 cu. inch V8. Modifications to the styling included adding a major bend in the center of the grille and making the model less “boxy” than the 1966 model. An 8-track tape cartridge player became an option with the back-up lights being standard.

For 1967 all Fords featured a large, padded hub in the center of the plastic steering wheel, along with an energy-absorbing steering column (introduced late into the 1967 model year), padded interior surfaces, recessed controls on the instrument panel, and front outboard shoulder belt anchors. Another safety related change was the introduction of the dual brake master cylinder used on all subsequent Galaxies (and other Ford models in fact).

The 1968 model had a new grille with headlights arranged horizontally, although the body was essentially the same car from the windshield back. The ‘long hood, short deck’ style with a more upright roofline and a notchback rear was followed too, as was the new trend for concealed headlights on the XL and LTD. One other change for 1968 was that the base V8 engine increased from 289 to 302 cu in (4.9 L). Standard equipment included courtesy lights, a cigarette lighter, a suspended gas pedal, and padded front seat backs. The 1968 models featured additional safety features, including side marker lights and shoulder belts on cars built after December 1, 1967. The 1967 model’s large steering wheel hub was replaced by a soft “bar” spoke that ran though the diameter of the wheel (and like the 1967 style, was used throughout the Ford Motor Company line).

Did you know?

The notorious gangster brothers Ronnie & Reggie Kray from the East End of London during the 60’s, they also used to own a gold coloured 1964 Galaxie 500 as one of their “firm” cars. Oh, when we say “gangsters” we mean genuine gangsters, not boys wearing hoodies with their jeans hanging half way round their thighs, struggling to verbally communicate the use of the English language while “giving it the large” trying to be, what they never will be. (rant over).

Customers Cars:

A returning visit from a good customer of ours and has won many trophies it her time. She is here for a general service and once over to make sure all is OK, especially on such a rare and genuine car.

Other News:

Not only was Adam buying a Galaxie, he bought (another) tool box. Why? It’s fairly obvious why we think.

It’s not new, but it’s in great condition as well as a limited edition of 300 signed by the man himself, Carroll Shelby!

Office:

This photo here shows that on Thursday we hit a new record!

Yes you really did read that correctly – 400 calls to the office at the time the picture was taken late Thursday afternoon this week. We do admit this is more exceptional than the rule to be fair, so taking that into account we done some maths for you.

400 calls over an 8 hour day that’s 50 calls and hour, almost 1 call a minute. If you take it that most calls last 3 – 4 minutes if your lucky, that would mean we need 3 people in the office just to answer the phones on that day. We wouldn’t mind – but most of the calls recently have been trying to sell us something or, “I bought this from [somewhere else] and I can’t get it to fit – how do I do I fit it?” Now we try to help our genuine customers where we can, but we can’t think of any other service that will support other products for free, especially if they are not purchased from that vendor. The sad thing is a lot of these calls are from people we have never dealt with before and trying to get free support from us.

There is now a new process in the office due to the success of the WebShop business. The orders are processed and packaged in the morning ready for the couriers to pick up the packages just after lunch each day. It’s not until after two in the afternoon that the phones get attended to. In theory there shouldn’t be any calls regarding the stock levels as we keep saying; the WebShop is accurate for stock levels, there is no need to call and check with us, honestly. If it’s a special order we will certainly deal with that for you, again by email is your best bet.

The trouble is that if Adam is answering the phones – there is one person less doing the work on the cars. However, Adam has his phone connected to the network and pics up his emails throughout the day and will respond to you.

We are in the process of holding even more stock now and had to create another storage space, we will bring you photo’s of that next week along with the new large item dispatch area. We have some new wheels in stock and we shall be putting them on the blog next week too.

Race And Back To Road Again

We see many cars at Mustang Maniac that have been turned into “Street Racers” or “Drag Strip Racers” very effectively, but not many have been turned back into the road cars they once were. We have such a car with those very intentions to be a road car again now for a little while. We can now start to bring you regular updates on that process as it goes along. The process has been a long one so far as the car had to be stripped back to metal in order to see what is there, or not there in the case of some metal parts, and then repair her. We came up with a name for her, not very original we admit, but it suits her; Blue Race Coupe or the “BRC” which sounds much better.

There are some dead give aways this was a race car, the biggest hint was the “Spool” diff. In other words the diff was “welded up” so that each wheel will turn at the same time irrespective of the tyre load and power transfer. Great on a track for lots of traction, but on the road the tyres will squeal and drag round corners and makes the car feel a handful should we say. The other little sign is the additional cooling at the front of the main cooling radiator.

We are pretty sure this lady has had a hard life in the past and has been attacked in a big way by the dreaded rust worm. Nowhere near as bad as bad as some we restorations that we have sorted out in the past. So with the engine and gearbox out we had a look around her to see initially what was going to be needed to fix her back up again. The inner battery apron and chassis legs were by far the worst sections and would need some serious work.

The original C4 gearbox had been replaced a C6 manual with the floor pan pretty much cut open and welded back up around it, in order to make it fit.

Inside the floor pans were patches on patches and much of the structural fabrication was rotten through, so with that and the damage to the tunnel section considered, it was decided to take the floor out and replace it for a new one. This is usually much more cost-effective and it’s all fresh metal too. In addition we can then see exactly what we were dealing with for structural integrity.

The trunk section was also in a bad way along with the drop offs and inner wheel arches, but we believe we can save much of the outer quarters.

So after the initial inspection by Adam and Yogi, it was time to start work on her, starting at the front. The inner apron on the right was cut away and exposed damaged chassis legs. Sheared bolts for the bumper irons brackets would need to be cut out and re-fabricated.

New metal welded into place and ground down for the chassis legs, the insides were treated with red oxide to prevent rusting from the inside out.

The new inner apron was fitted and also treated in red oxide paint. In fact all the new metal or welded parts were covered with red oxide.

Next week the BRC will get a new floor pan, what will we find under her then?

WebShop

At last years SEMA show Adam found more exclusive parts for Mustang Maniac to stock the WebShop up with. One of those was a prototype steering wheel he liked the look of. Well, that order has been partly filled with the first of the production line with 13.75″ diameter and finished in billet with a leather grip. The mounting boss is also made especially for this wheel.

As with all our new stock we will trial these on a car and make sure it lives up to our highest standards. So we had a volunteer who agreed to trial it for us, he didn’t need much encouragement by the way! So here it is fitted to the first gen Mustang, the first in the country.

From the WebShop a new pic for the Mustang Maniac “Core” left to right; Adam, Morgan and Yogi (Allan) as he is sometimes referred to.

Ripping Up The Rule Book

This week we can’t fail to mention the weather, which has seen a promise of more to come in the UK. We are happy to see a period of nice weather for a change instead of the normal rain, with the on set of the nice weather we have managed to convert the old car storage areas into a new “large and heavy parts” dispatch area. As a result of Mustang Maniac needing more space and storage areas for a slightly different car! More on that later a little further down.

Park & Pic

This week we had a very nice rare car come into us with a minor leak on the steering. We fixed it with no problems as normal, and the customer arrived to take her away. We give you the legendary Shelby GT500, nothing else needs to be said!

 

More Stock

It’s a well-known fact that for your Mustang parts, Adam is your man with is ever-expanding WebShop. But, what is not quite as well-known is that Mustang Maniac stocks an ever-increasing rage of ’64 – ’66 Falcon parts too, so much so that Adam is now “stock piling” Falcons cars now to match the stock levels.

The latest set of Mustang parts in stock are these performance strut rod parts which have now arrived in the latest container. They are super high quality and an awesome racing part upgrade or just for bragging rights.

Drag Racing

Another known fact is that Yogi takes his Mach1 down the Santa Pod 1/4 mile drag strip, wrecking a set of tyres each time, but the bear was not happy with his last eleven second run. The reason was the will spin being unable to get all that power down to the tarmac. To stop that Yogi bought himself an over drive and under drive unit. Yep you read that right “Under Drive”. This gearbox allows you to select the lower gear to launch of the line that much quicker. The gearbox will allow you to change gears for each of the main gears which gives you in effect six main gears now. Yogi has fitted it and loves it, so much so that he has melted his speedo cable, we need to think of a way to fix that, we have a plan. Here we have some instructions for the unit to show just how it works. The new AutoDrive is able to handle up to 1200bhp! Yogi has been heard to say, “That will do for now”!

The inside is so subtle to work the overdrive, fully automatic with indicators via a switch on the console arrowed here.

For race, there is a switch on the console that controls the normal operation, and another he operates with his foot for “only for racing purposes, on specially designed track with proper supervision for all health and safety purposes” should the need arise at Santa Pod.

The funniest part of all this is that we found a page “removed” from the instructions. Rumour has it that Yogi “accidentally ripped it” or tore out the page called; “Drag Racing do’s and dont’s”. He is also rumoured to be growling “nobody tells the bear how to drag race”.

Yogi has changed out his livery on his car too, subtle but very effective. Thanks to Linards for these.

The gearbox is working fine, but his interior is now apart thinking of a way to stop the speedo cable getting so hot. But this is what the completed fit looks like underneath.

He has put some of his stickers on the car too;

If you see this car don’t bother to try racing it! Honestly, we have road tested it and we can confirm – it’s quick.

Next week we have a special report on the Fox body lights. Keep cool in the sun and be sensible with the heat.
