Did you know that your car has a DOB? In this case DOB stands for ‘Date of Build’ but none the less it’s the date that your car, and every car, goes from being a number on an order to an actual vehicle on the production line. While finding out the DOB of the car in your driveway may take a few minutes of Google searching, the actual day that the new Ford you have your eye on was built is easy to find. Take for example the 2015 Mustang with VIN # 1FA6P8CF8F5302934 that is heading toward our store here in Riverside right now… at the top of the window sticker you see below is a numeric code; 120140826. As you have probably already figured out once you looked at it, the code is fairly simple to break! The year of build is 2014, month of production is August and this Pony’s actual production date is the 26th! Just a handy little fun tip to keep in mind the next time you are on the lot looking at a new Ford, you can show your salesperson that you know more than the average car shopper!
Like many thousands of Pony fans around the world we were incredibly excited to see the Internet explode with the headlines that the 2015 Mustang production had started at the Flat Rock plant! As we anxiously scanned all the automotive news sites for info we noticed the picture below in many posts and suddenly remembered that our first, non customer ordered, Mustang is in fact a Competition Orange GT coupe like the one being assembled here… could this Pony be destined for Raceway Ford? We sure hope so that’s for sure!!! Stay tuned Ford Fans, it will be here in a matter of days and if you want to know the specs on it you can find them HERE.
With the 662 horsepower produced by its hand built, supercharged 5.8L engine the Shelby GT500 is the most powerful V8 powered vehicle on the planet, and you have the chance to own one… When the editors of AutoBlog.com drove the Cobra the simply stated that is was “Stupid, stinking, earth shatteringly fast” and there is no way to deny that! Few vehicles on the road, anywhere, can move the soul like a Shelby Mustang, this gorgeous 2013 was purchased by a collector and driven once, from Utah to his garage where it has been lovingly cared for as evidenced by the mere 727 miles on the odometer! Its Tremec 6-Speed racing trans only shifted a handful of times and the tires have NEVER been smoked. Of course having all that power on tap would be terrifying without a way to bring it all safely to a stop and to make sure it can do just that there huge 14” vented front discs up front with Brembo SIX piston calipers and 13.8 vented discs grabbing tight at the rear. The Ford SVT crew has given the Cobra all the race experience available in its suspension tuning to make this Mustang a track dominator with Toresn rear differential, cock pit adjustable Bilstein electronic dampers at each corner and 19” (front) and 20” (rear) exclusive forged aluminum wheels with Z rated tires. Factory equipped launch control ensures smooth and consistent starts every time with just the right amount of wheels spin for maximum traction and four, driver selectable performance settings. Road and Track said the GT500 is “totally at home on a road course yet remarkably civil in everyday situations” and that’s due in part to the incredibly comfortable yet tight holding leather seating and the powerful Shaker sound system although if truth be told we prefer the grumble if it tunes exhaust as our driving music! With the Mustang production ended and the plants gearing up for the all-new 2015 we know this is one of the last examples of this truly amazing car and there will not be a high performance version of the new Pony for at least the first two model years so, if you are serious about owning one of these rod going beast you NEED to contact us TODAY!

For the last year and a half or so Mustang fans have been chomping at the bit waiting for the arrival of the next generation of America’s favorite Pony, the 2015 Ford Mustang! To commemorate the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Mustang, Ford held a huge premier event here on the west coast at the world famous TLC Chinese Theater and our own Mike theCarGuy was lucky enough to get an invite and be there! There were hundreds of celebrities and members of the world auto press, and just like the famous star it is the new Mustang even left its ‘foot print’ in the wet cement out in front of the theater to be displayed next to stars like Steve McQueen!

The new GT is powered by a freshened up Coyote 5.0l V8 that develops 420hp and will also be available with the Launch Control (Line Lock) feature previously only available on the Shelby Cobra’s! At the other end of the spectrum is an all new 4 cyl, DOHC Turbo Charged EcoBoost engine that makes 305hp while also returning class leading exceptional fuel mileage! Out back the rear suspension is all new and fully independent, which means the new Pony will change the way you feel about the letters IRS forever! Quite simply the only thing the designers kept from the current platform is the way they spell Mustang!
