BangShift Project Files: The Ballad Of The Little Red Mustang, Now With More Blower Noise

One of the most colorful characters in the BangShift Forums is “pdub”, who was formerly known as Peewee. We don’t mean colorful as yours truly (meaning that every fifth word usually...

Project “Great Pumpkin” Mustang: Step Two Is Making A Sacrifice To The Pony Car Gods

SEMA 2016: Checking Out The New Products At Ford Performance!

Earlier this week we showed you what the Bowtie Brigade has been up to, and if you think that Ford is going to rest on their laurels, you are sorely mistaken. Ford has been on a big performance push...

Question Of The Day: How Would You Build This Dirt-Cheap Mercury Mountaineer?

BangShift Project Files: Meet The Man Who Can’t Stop Frame-Swapping!

An automobile project doesn’t get much more involved than a frame swap, does it? Undoing that marriage of chassis and body that was made at the factory takes commitment, a near encyclopedic...

BangShift Project Follow-Up: The LeMons Rally Edsel – Finished, Driven and Now For Sale!
