The hallways of the Autoblog campus are much quieter now that Zach Bowman has taken his prose, along with his welders, wrenches and hammers, over to the digital pages of Road & Track, but that doesn't mean our favorite project Mustang is gone forever. Project Ugly Horse is still coming along, and Zach has gifted us another update on his unfoxy Fox Body.

Last we saw of the Ugly Horse, Zach was strengthening up the '89 Mustang's chassis as he prepares to stuff the turbocharged, direct-injected EcoBoost engine of a Ford Focus ST under the hood. First things first, the old mill must go. Head on over to Road & Track to catch the latest chapter of Project Ugly Horse.

      Props for redirecting us to a story that from now on will be completely featured on another website. It's a nice touch towards your readers, regardless of the fact that some may have already realized the project was moving to R&T a while ago.

        It's cool that he did the same and mentioned that the rest of the Project Ugly Horse stories were located here.

        Zach was great at the start of his tenure, but maybe it was the R&T offer that seemed to send him down the path that made him sound pretty entitled towards the end.

      Wish Zach would return to Autoblog.

      I agree with johnny. Thanks for linking to this and keeping us in the loop. It's a great project, even if (or perhaps because) it shows the pain of these kinds of builds. Go Zach.

      Dude! Somebody put your car on Pinterest! All this time my wife has told me it's about monogrammed baskets and kid art going up the stairs...

      So what kind of transmission will you use with the EcoBoost?

      Once Shunk left I had no reason to listen to the podcast. The other 2 are nice for color but annoying.

      i think it's instructive that he loved this old car as a beater, but under examination there isn't any part that doesn't need to be upgraded, strengthened or replaced. i've really enjoyed reading about this project, i really love the idea of keeping old cars alive, but i'm glad it's him and not me and i can't help but wonder how much he still loves the fox body and whether he'd rather have his time over and buy an S2000

      Very classy, Autoblog. I've been checking Road and Track from time to time to see if Zach had a new update. Thanks for letting us know.
