By today’s standards, Fox Bodies, and most muscle cars for that matter, aren’t considered safe. No airbags, no ABS, questionable seat belts, but hey: they had padded steering wheels, right? Well, having them, and having them stay in place during a crash is a different story as you’ll see.
Brute horsepower is awe-inspiring. We’re not talking 600, 700 or even 800 hp; we’re talking 1,500+ hp at the tires. That kind of power is enough to make any gearhead weak in his/her knees.
I’d never seen someone jump a Fox-body until I saw this insane video of Vaughn Gitten Jr. rallying, jumping and sliding his Fox-body drift Mustang in a rock quarry located on the back of his property. There’s no way around it, Gitten is as crazy as he is talented, and here’s proof!
We’ve all got our top-10 favorite Mustangs, but what about famous car collectors like Jay Leno? Ever wondered what someone with deep pockets thinks is the bee’s knees in the form of Mustangs?
