2015 Ford Mustang Specs – GT Gets 435 HP

Not to be outdone by Dodge and their obscene 707 horse Challenger SRT Hellcat, Ford has just release their own muscle car news.  Of course, I have to be referring to the 2015 Ford Mustang GT and its more-than-respectable-in-fact-its-downright-great 5.0-liter V8 churning out 435 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque.  By the way, that’s 20 more horse than a 996 Porsche 911 Turbo.  Food for thought.   Not to be outdone by...

Earl’s one-of-a-kind 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible (aka Shop Order 10323).  That is to say… I knew it existed, but...
