Very few shops are taking on extensive Fox Body Mustang projects these days, but Creations n’ Chrome, is used to bucking the trend. After building S197 Mustangs for the SEMA Show in 2010 and 2011 as well as creating the aviation-based Mustangs that were auctioned off at EAA AirVenture the past two years, the Valencia, CA-based company decided to build the ultimate Fox Body Mustang. Their “Top Notch” Mustang was first announced a little over a year ago, with a mostly-finished car debuting at the SEMA Show less than ten months later.

While Vaughn Gittin Jr. might have had a great time in Vegas, Pro-Am drifter Jim Guthrie didn’t have as much luck. After what looked like a pretty sweet slide, he locked up the brakes and went into the tire barrier. While this doesn’t look particularly awesome, according the description on YouTube–a truly unimpeachable source if there ever was one–the driver is fine and the “car should be salvageable.”

Without wanting to give too much away, this battle didn’t turn out exactly the way I thought it would. [Read more...]
The title of this video might be “Ken Block’s West Virginia cousin,” but the snarky description–”No relation since this was done is one take”–pokes a little fun at the Gymkhana master. Regardless of who the driver is related to, or whether this is actually West Virginia, he definitely knows how to drive.The tire marks seem to indicate this was actually done in one take, and his accomplice only has to adjust his pace for a brief second at the very beginning of the clip. Nice work gents! [Read more...]
Nobody knows why cars with nitrous blow up all the time. Kidding. But this is a perspective I haven’t seen. As the motor gives out, you can see the flash against the other car, which is almost kind of arty. I say almost only because I don’t know how many arty things involve exploding Mustang engines. After the boom, there’s some good footage of the leftovers. Check out the illuminating video after the jump. [Read more...]
