    Read This: Project Ugly Horse alive and kicking at Road & Track
    1377818940

    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, ...

    One Step at a Time Nearly every flavor of exotic driveline has been shoved into the ubiquitous Ford at some point or another. Chuck Schwynoch had been patiently listening to my ramblings on the other end of the phone for a solid half hour. I'm not too big of a man to know when to ask for ...

    Now With More EcoBoost There's an EcoBoost 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder in there somewhere, and it's headed straight for Ugly Horse. For the second time in my life, I'm staring at an engine in the back of a truck with no concept of how to get it safely into the garage by my lonesome. ...

    Solid Axle? What Solid Axle? I was fully prepared to embark on a seven-day journey down a rabbit hole of broken bolts, internet hearsay and consternation. This should not have gone this easily. Having a long and checkered history of simple projects punctuated by much wailing and gnashing ...

    The Slippery Slope I've had a healthy appreciation for cars that stop since one truly unfortunate incident with a runaway 1971 Lincoln Continental. It's funny how quickly a party can turn from, "We're all having blast" to "What happened to the front of the house, and how many stitches do ...

    Bits and Pieces The asphyxiation-blue plastic of my dash looked like it would snap under a crass tone. The line between cleverness and idiocy is a blurry one. After reading a number of write-ups on the best way to swap pedal boxes in a Fox Body Ford Mustang, I decided to eschew common ...

    Now With More Manual Transmission Trust me when I say there is no more detestable a sensation than being slowly overrun by cold tranny fluid. This isn't my first rodeo. I have, in the past, pulled any number of transmissions, both automatic and manual, and no matter how many times I do the ...

    Life To The Car, Death To The Slusher Miss Part I of Project Ugly Horse? Read it here. Daniel was not happy. The melting frost had turned the dirt/mold mixture on the Mustang's rear quarter panel into a sort of frog-sweat slime, and his right hand was now covered in the goo. He stopped ...

    Meet the Horse I have always hated this car. Not the Ford Mustang, mind you, nor the ubiquitous Fox body, but this specific car. It's not because it came from the factory cursed with a heavy and under-powered 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine or an entirely worthless four-speed automatic gearbox. ...
