Auto Education & An Authors Trials and Tribulations.

I was asked to Design, Build and Market a website that provided resources about Automotive education. We have titled it Auto School Guide. The design of the site went well. Building it was easy. I am now at the stage of writing content for Auto Schools, Diesel Schools, Motorcycle Schools,Truck Driving Schools and more. This is where it gets challenging. I noticed while researching Automotive Colleges and Trade Schools in general, that everyone writes… Continue

A picture is worth a thousand words...

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. In this one you see the 5.0 HO V8 Miata project. Outside the window you see the empty carcass of a Mustang that once housed the engine that is sitting in the Miata right now. In the foreground you see a fire extinguisher necessary at this stage of the project because Jimmy's not sure he's got the wiring right.

But the interior rocks! A stock LS-1 six speed sits under the hood and the engine bay is killer- you could almost eat off it! They custom machined all the fender braces and caps, also custom… Continue

65 Mustang Suspension

Wondering if anyone has any experience with aftermarket suspensions for 65 mustangs. I am considering the RRS Phase 2 front suspension with a power rack and pinion setup. The rear is where I am not sure. The RRS system doesn't look like it will allow a chassis stiffener (Heidt's), the TCP G-link looks good and it should allow subframe connectors and a chassis stiffener, and finally the Heidts system would also allow this. Does anyone have these and how were they to install and more importantly… Continue

How it all started.

What lit the fire that got me motivated to start the restoration of my 68?

About two months ago I decided that I should replace the starter on my 68 chevelle. When I was 17 I owned a 69 camaro that needed a starter and changing it was a straight forward process so I thought I was in the clear. I couldn't have been more wrong. After about five minutes under the car it became painfully apparent that I was going to have to drop the header in order to get the starter off thanks to the way some… Continue

Future projects for the show

I think that Musclecar should rebuild either a 1969/1970 Ford Torino or a 1970/1971 Boss 302 Mustang (above). Let me know what the rest of you thinks.
