Project Mongrel Update: The Mazda-Meets-Ford Project Is Moving Along At A Quick Pace!

Project Mongrel Update: Chassis Stiffening And Rollcage Fabrication Begin

When we saw the Urchfab was doing a body swap, we were immediately intrigued. Maybe it’s because I’ve done them myself, and maybe it was because everything he does is simple and yet clean...

BangShift Test Drive: 2012 Ford Shelby GT500 – No Crowds Were Harmed In The Testing Of This Vehicle

(Words and Photos by Scott Liggett) When we last left Project Mud Bomber we had rebuilt the brakes, replaced the shocks, had the gas tank cleaned and lined. We also cleaned over 250 lbs of mud off...

The Mach 12: Check Out How This 1973 Ford Mustang Is Being Turned Into One Man’s Vision Of A Sports Car!

A Happy Reunion: A Barn-Find 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 And It’s Original 428SCJ Engine!

(Words by JunkyardDigs) We all wish we could have our own GTO Judge, or 426 Hemi powered Mopar, but many of us know that we could never afford one of these cars in good shape, especially one with a...

BangShift Project Files: A Turbo Lincoln LSC That Is Getting The Full-Kill Build Treatment

The Fox-body Lincoln Mark VII and LSC are criminally underrated. Take every positive aspect you can come up with about a similar-vintage Fox Mustang, add the aero shape that is shared with the...

Automotive Archeology: Check Out This Big Block Mopar-Powered Model A Ford As It Comes Out Into The Light!
