A hybrid Mustang coming

The article also mentions the new F150 Raptor. The Raptor will also get an ecoboost V6 and this one will put out 450 HP. This engine version will only be available in the Raptor.
Looks like the Bronco and Ranger pickup will return too.
Good things from my favorite car company

I always thought if I had disposable income that I would have a car built exactly the way I want it.
I would start with the body/shell and chassis of a 57 Chevy. Mostly because It would be safe. Kinda like driving a tank. Then I would give it all the comforts of modern car accessories. Air conditioning, FOB for doors trunk and auto starting...
Whenever I would tell guys that I wanted to do that, I was met with a resounding round of boos for messing with a classic.

I'm what we used to call a hacker (before that term became primarily computer-focused) and now call a maker (though that doesn't automatically imply fixing/modifying, which I've loved to do, above all, be it machines, humans, groups or anything else) -- so to me, the hot-rodder is the pinnacle of Car-Love. To me, a purist collector.is more like a clerk, a stamp collector, a trainspotter, while a hot-rodder is more like a lover: working with what s/he loves, getting elbow deep in the nitty-gritty-and-not-always-pretty, because you really know/love the subject of your obsession, rather than just the ideal of it. It's easy to buy a pristine model -- that's just money, like getting candy/baseball cards from the 5&10 as small children, but with bigger numbers.
Truly understanding what is, what could be, what you want, how to get there, and still loving it even if it fought you all the way and didn't turn out as you hoped/imagined... Well, that may not be a definition of love, but it's sure better than a lot of things that pass for love/romance/caring these days. Love ain't "obtaining perfection"; it's "working hard at it, and being damned happy with what you finally got, because you understand".

This is kind of a no-brainer but, I decided it was worth saying that of course the car, whatever it turned out to be, would be the color purple.

Now if only Ford would keep a good purple in their color choices!
Hot rodding (and customizing) is definitely the peak of car love!
A Ford motor bike....hmmmmmmm, Yeah, I could get behind that. A long as it comes in purple
