Mustang History: Rollin' In My 5.0!

Wednesday, April 6 2016
The Mustang faithful breathed a collective sigh of relief as model year 1987 arrived. Ford’s plan to launch a Mazda based, front wheel drive “Mazdastang” was averted after a huge outcry from owners, fans, and magazines alike. This sent Ford back to the drawing board, with real development of the next Mustang not beginning until around 1990. 1987 5.0 LX Hatchback1987 5.0 GT HatchbackThe next Mustang would not debut until...

Sales are Down, but Opportunities are Up

Sales are Down, but Opportunities are Up

With the 2016 Arizona Auction results tallied, reports show that sales are down by about 15% as compared to 2015.   Much of this decline is attributed to individual genres of cars softening in value or not performing as expected at auction. Many factors play into the overall decline, but collectors are starting to wonder what the future holds for their cars, particularly for genres that are impacted most by the changes in the market....

Mustang History: The Big 80's

Friday, January 15 2016
After weathering what has been commonly referred to as “the Malaise Era,” the 1980’s would bring a new found optimism to the automobile industry as a whole. Ford’s Mustang II had been a good and consistent seller, but to the Mustang faithful, it’s anemic performance and to some, it’s styling, left a great deal to be desired. The new for 1979 Mustang was a radical departure with aerodynamic styling and more...
