Author Steve Magnante is well known for this encyclopedia-like knowledge of automotive facts. The details he regularly shares, both in the pages of national magazines and as a contributing host and tech expert at the popular Barrett-Jackson Auctions on television, are the kinds of details that car fanatics love to hear. Many feel that these facts are among the highlights of television auction coverage, much more interesting than the final hammer price. Steve turns his attention to the most popular car in history, the Ford Mustang. In more than 50 years, the Mustang has taken many turns, from the original pony car, to variants that are best described as pure muscle cars, to the misunderstood Mustang II, to the Fox-body platform that revived the brand, all the way to the modern Coyote and Voodoo-powered supercars.
This book is divided into eight chapters, each covering a different era of the Mustang—such as “Of Foxes and Five-Point-Ohs (1979-1993).” Each chapter includes five sections: “Legend and Lore,” “Body and Interior,” “Engine and Driveline,” “Suspension and Brakes,” and “Number Crunching and Press Commentary.” Each fact is identified with a big, bold number; a paragraph is dedicated to describing each fact, rather than reducing them to bulleted lists of phrases. Includes 120 black and white photos. Buy now to get these fun facts on the Mustang.
