    Or maybe he'll be happy until she wraps his Boxster around a tree.

    Took me a while to place exactly what car that is. Skyline GTR R32. Predecessor to today's GTR, not available in the USA.

    Hi All:

    So how well do you think a 26 Buick (maybe a Packard?) would do on the IIHS or NHTSA side pole crash test?

    There was a Dayton Ohio police officer killed the same way in a Ford Fairmont back in the early 80's.

    Hi All:

    Hi All:

    In honor of the 49th year of the Mustang, here is a shot of a Mustang pulling one of its own!

    Happy Birthday Mustang! Forty-nine years to the day after its 1964 debut in New York, the iconic sports car celebrates another milestone: One million Mustangs have rolled off the line at Ford’s Flat Rock Assembly Plant since production moved there in 2004. Ford is celebrating this milestone as year 50 of continuous Mustang production gets under way at Flat Rock Assembly.

    Ford built Mustangs near its home base in Dearborn, Michigan for 49 years at its famous River Rouge factory, just a few minutes from company headquarters. In 2004, production was moved to a few miles south to Flat Rock.

    Introduced in April 1964, Mustang proved to be far more popular than anyone expected, prompting Ford to add production capacity outside Michigan. By early 1965 plants in Metuchen, N.J. and San Jose, California were also building Mustang. Less than two years later, on Wednesday, March 2, 1966, the one-millionth Mustang rolled off the line in Dearborn. To date, Ford has produced and sold more than 8.5 million Mustangs.

    The launch of Mustang production at Flat Rock coincided with introduction of the then all-new fifth-generation model – first in the series to get a dedicated platform. In addition to the standard V6 and the V8-powered GT model, Mustangs coming out of Flat Rock Assembly Plant have included several special editions and race cars:
    • In 2006 Flat Rock built a limited run of black and gold Shelby GT-H coupes for Hertz rental fleets to commemorate the 1966 Shelby GT350H rental car
    • 2007 brought the debut of the Shelby GT500 Mustang developed by SVT with a supercharged 5.4-liter V8 producing 500 horsepower, the most ever for a Mustang then
    • For the 2008 and 2009 model years, the Mustang lineup included the Bullitt, inspired by the car driven by the title character in the 1968 film of the same name
    • For the 2012 and 2013 model years, Flat Rock built the track-optimized Boss 302
    • The Flat Rock line has produced numerous competition versions of Mustang including the FR500, Boss 302R and the extremely successful Cobra Jet drag racer
