the zen of car care

FOR ONE YEAR, I GOT TO LIVE OUT MY LIFELONG FANTASY OF BEING A LEGIT RACE CAR DRIVER. At that opening race at Road Atlanta, there was a steady mist in the air outside. Insane first-race jitters had me puking in my hotel room’s wastebasket, worried about what I was about to face. My crew chief/mentor Chris Kaufmann sat me down and explained to me what I was about to see and how to deal with it, and then he gave me a piece of wisdom that I’ve carried ever since: “You will never be more relaxed than you are behind the wheel of a race car.” “Are you INSANE?!” I screamed at him, as my Chicken Little imagination had me ending up in every gravel trap and wall on the…

55 years of mustang update

As we get closer, updates on the 55 Years of Mustang event, coinciding with the grand opening of the Mustang Owner’s Museum in April 2019, are steadily hitting our desk. Like any of the big anniversary shows of years past, the 55 Years of Mustang event, which will be held at Charlotte Motor Speedway, is shaping up to have a great list of guest speakers, seminars, special displays, and more. The most recent announcement from the Mustang Owner’s Museum staff is in regard to everyone’s favorite Mustang movie—Bullitt—and its infamous San Francisco chase scene. While the hero car (known as 559—the last three digits of its VIN) owned by the Kiernan family has been making the rounds of events/displays, Bullitt 558, which was used for stunts and other driving footage, is…

new bits

THICK-SKINNED In the quest for quieting down our classic Mustangs, discussions about sound-dampening products often come up. Peel-and-stick products are popular, but if you’re looking for a quick and easy way to get complete coverage, a spray-or brush-on product like Heatshield Products’ db Skin is the answer. This water-based formula, available in 1-, 2-, and 5-gallon sizes, can be used as a topcoat alone, or it can be coated with paint or bedliner material to hide the product—perfect for inside doors, trunks, and more. Applied directly to bare metal, painted/primered metal, wood, plastic, and fiberglass surfaces, db Skin significantly reduces unwanted interior noise.

1989 mustang lx 5.0 secret code: 41x

IN THE BACK OF AN OLD SHOP—IN A 100-PLUS-YEAR-OLD BOILER ROOM—IN URBAN CLEVELAND, HID A 1989 MUSTANG LX 5.0L THAT HAD BEEN PARKED AND COVERED THERE SINCE 1999 OR 2000. Lewis Lukanc, aka Lew, told us, “The paperwork that the Ford dealership gets when the order is placed revealed a peculiar option list” for this Mustang. “It didn’t just list not having options; it listed what options you couldn’t get due to this one particular code.” Lew referred to code 41X. What was this—a secret code? The mystery of 41X is one reason Lew threw a cover over and parked the LX he found and bought from a Ford engineer that worked out of the Brook Park engine building plant, located right there in Cleveland. That engineer, it turns out, was…
