  2018 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet Set to Burn up Drag Strips To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the very first Mustang Cobra Jet, which ruled the drag strips in 1968, the automaker will once again release a modern-day take of this legendary racing pony car.

The beast will rely on a supercharged 5.2-litre V8, a variation of the Coyote engine that equips the Mustang GT, not the Voodoo V8 that’s found in the Shelby GT350.

Watch as a vintage Ford Model A races a Ford Model T after the two owners brag about which vehicle is superior. When Ford began production of the Model A , it had a four-cylinder engine producing 40 horsepower with a top speed of 65 miles per hours.

It’s a race of elephants.

There’s an unverifiable quote from Henry Ford about how motor racing began after the second car was built. Whether you believe it to be true doesn’t matter. Ever since there was the automobile, there’ve been automobile races. The first race in the U.S. happened in 1895 in Chicago between six entrants. Ever since then, automakers have been pitting their latest and greatest motorized machines against one another. What we have here in this video is a race of elephants – a Ford Model A trying to beat a Ford Model T. The race isn’t blisteringly quick. 

Ford Teases 2020 Explorer At Beijing Motor Show

  Ford Teases 2020 Explorer At Beijing Motor Show The new SUV should be here sometime in 2019. The Bronco isn’t the only SUV you should be excited about from the Blue Oval. Ford today teased its upcoming new Explorer at the Beijing Motor Show in China, hiding the new SUV under a large blue sheet ahead of its debut next year. Though we don’t learn much from this lone teaser image, there are some key design elements to point out. 1/16 SLIDES © Motor1.com Ford Explorer ST Spy Photos 2/16 SLIDES © Motor1.com Ford Explorer ST Spy Photos 3/16 SLIDES © Motor1.com Ford Explorer ST Spy Photos 4/16 SLIDES © Motor1.

Ford Model T Model A Drag Race . More. It appears the Model A has a clear lead over the Model T as the two pass the camera, which makes sense. When Ford began production of the Model A , it had a four-cylinder engine producing 40 horsepower with a top speed of 65 miles per hours.

Ford Model T Model A Drag Race . The grainy video makes it hard to distinguish the Model A form the Model T . They are different models – Model T production ended in 1927 when Model A production began.

The grainy video makes it hard to distinguish the Model A form the Model T. They are different models – Model T production ended in 1927 when Model A production began. It appears the Model A has a clear lead over the Model T as the two pass the camera, which makes sense. 

When Ford began production of the Model A, it had a four-cylinder engine producing 40 horsepower with a top speed of 65 miles per hours. It came with a three-speed transmission. The Model T’s four-cylinder engine made a partly 20 hp – at least new and depending on the year. Top speed was limited to just 45 mph. The clear performance advantage is with the newer Model A – granted, the use of the word "newer" is relative. 

We don’t know if either of these cars has any modifications. Considering their age, they’ve likely had a few upgrades to keep them running in tip-top shape. According to the video description, this race started a lot like many – between two owners bragging about who has the better car. The race took place in Cuba, Missouri on Route 66, which seems quite fitting for these two vintage automobiles. 

While the race doesn’t have the speed of today’s high-performance automobiles, it’s still thrilling to watch. Then again, maybe we like seeing things race.

How the Ford Probe almost killed the Mustang .
The history of the Ford Mustang stretches back decades, with the very first car starting its engine in 1964. Since then the Mustang has endured everything from multiple oil crisis to extreme rivalry on its own turf. At times the model has been its own worst enemy, with the third-generation model straying far from the successful ‘pony car’ formula. That car dented the Mustang’s reputation, but it was the Ford Probe that could have finished off the Blue Oval icon.
