The Ford Mustang is not only Autoblog’s meat and potatoes, it’s also America’s most modded machine. Turning the relatively demure ox-cart suspended pony car into a overwrought, overpowered death car is big business. As our Best and Brightest know, the Las Vegas SEMA show is the temple of VTEC—I mean, modded motors. This year, Ford is sponsoring the show and bringing the noise (or whatever the current colloquialism may be). They’ve sent the usual herd of free ‘Stangs to the tuners with the inevitable results. White wall tires are in again? Who knew? “SEMA is important to Ford,” said Brian Wolfe, director of Ford Racing. “It’s not only about making great cars, but for those enthusiasts who want to take their cars beyond what manufacturers build.” So does that mean that people who take their cars beyond what manufacturers build are not making great cars? Perish the thought.
