This is my first blog post and it will be about cars. Not motherhood, not beauty, not anything like that, just cars. Actually, about Mustangs. Let me tell you a couple of things about myself first, I am woman and a mommy to a beautiful princess, and a wife, and I simply love cars and everything that comes with it.
One of my favorite cars is the ’68 Ford Mustang, as they call it “First generation Ford Mustang”.
I don’t own it, but I hope that one day I will. 😊 This baby is so elegant and so classy, that I would drive it only outside the city on a good road by myself. With good music coming through the speakers and the sunset colors coming in through the windshield. To poetic, no, trust me, when you think about this car that is the only way you can imagine it drive.
A bright red, of course, because I am a bad ass bitch and love the red color. But let’s go under the hood and talk a bit about her power. And I am saying “her” because it is a she, and her name is 1968 Shelby GT350.
The 1968 GT350 came with an iron-block, 289-cubic-inch (4.7-liter) V-8 rated at 306 horsepower and 329 lb-foot of torque. For a pushrod design, the GT350 revved relatively high, with the horsepower peak not in full swing until the 6,000-rpm redline. 1968 was well before modern fuel injection came about, and the car used a single Holley four-barrel carburetor. The true dual-exhaust with H-shaped crossover system came standard with low restriction mufflers and chrome exhaust tips. Power was routed to the ground through a sturdy, four-speed manual transmission with a single, dry-disc clutch.
Did I gave you enough information on the engine? Hope so, now we can go back to that fine music and sunset. Writing this I am only imagining myself driving it in the sunset.
