Ever since we first heard the announcement about the new Mustang back in December 2013, we at Ford Addict have been eager to do a 2015 Ford Mustang GT review. Other than the new redesign, 2015 is also an important year as the Mustang proudly celebrates its 50th Anniversary.

Many Ford vehicles were on display at the 2014 SEMA show, and everything from the Transit van to the classic Ford GT were shown with some unique custom flair. Read More
Shots were fired on April 17, 1964. A battle was started, but not the kind we typically think of: it was the Pony Car War. Now, rivalries in America aren’t new.
