2015 Ford Mustang Convertible – Road Test

In 2015 Ford Mustang celebrates its 50th Anniversary with an all-new design and a year-long celebration. Last year we spent a lot of time around the Mustang, but there weren’t any available to test drive until early this year. Finally I got the keys to a convertible version – perfect for nice hot summer days. Along with the drop-top came a manual transmission – extremely rare in this day and age of automatics… and an incredible audio system. Does it get better than this?

I still haven’t gotten around to buying my own Mustang yet, but at …

2011 Dodge Challenger R/T Classic – Road Test

“Oooh – That is beau-ti-ful…Has that got a HEMI?” “Yep” “Is it YOURS?!” “Unfortunately…. no it isn’t” …And so began my first encounter with people just 10 minutes after picking up the Dodge Challenger R/T from Chrysler. I’m surprised I didn’t cause accidents as people stared, open-mouthed and gob-smacked where ever I went. One older gentleman behind the wheel of a big SUV dropped his jaw, took off his sunglasses and just stared at the car as his grey-haired wife smiled one of those lusting smiles at me – or was it the car?
