Quick, what's the latest U.S.-market new car with fewer than 50 underfed ponies under the hood? © Ford Motor Company 1934 Ford Brochure 50 horsepower isn't much, even when you discount advertising hype and the gross-versus-net differences of the pre-early-1970s era. The original Ford flathead V8s of the 1930s made 60 to 95 horsepower, and even the punitively underpowered four-cylinder Chevy Novas of the late 1960s had 90 hp (which, in all likelihood, would be rated at something like 65 hp if measured by modern-day methods). The hilariously slow black-bumper MGBs of the late 1970s had 62.

The United Kingdom's drug regulator says the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine remains safe, despite rising cases of rare blood clots possibly linked to the jab.

The UK's Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) reported 25 new cases of rare blood clots possibly linked to the vaccine on Thursday, taking the total number of cases to 30.

  High-end branded car audio systems: Are they worth the money? Here's a closer look at what goes into the creation of these often expensive audio upgrades.Before its partnership with Jeep , McIntosh worked directly with Harley-Davidson, Subaru and Ford on branded audio systems; the latter is exclusive to the 2005-2006 Ford GT. It also offered very high-end aftermarket car audio systems for a while, and has been around as a company since 1949.

The agency said it had received no reports of such clotting following use of the vaccines made by BioNTech and Pfizer.

"Our rigorous review into the UK reports of rare and specific types of blood clots is ongoing," it said in a statement. "Up to and including 24 March, we have received 22 reports of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) and 8 reports of other thrombosis events with low platelets, out of a total of 18.1 million doses of COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca given by that date.

"There were no reports for the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine. To note, the current analysis prints include data up to and including the 21 March.

"On the basis of this ongoing review, the benefits of the vaccines against COVID-19 continue to outweigh any risks and you should continue to get your vaccine when invited to do so," the agency said.

In March, more than a dozen countries, mostly in Europe, temporarily suspended the rollout of the AstraZeneca vaccine after possible links to the rare blood clots emerged.

Many nations have since fully resumed its use following reassurances from the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the World Health Organization (WHO), while others have done so with caveats.

Germany has limited use of the shot to people over 60 years of age and high-priority groups, while France will give the jab to people over 55.

In Austria, Cameroon, Denmark, Norway, and Romania, use of the AstraZeneca vaccine is still suspended.

In the United States, use of the AstraZeneca vaccine has yet to be authorized.

On Thursday, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and chief medical adviser to the White House, said the country may not need to authorize it at all because it already has enough contracts with other vaccine makers to inoculate its entire population.

The US has so far authorized and rolled out COVID-19 vaccines from three manufacturers - Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson.

"My general feeling is that given the contractual relationships that we have with a number of companies, that we have enough vaccine to fulfill all of our needs without invoking AstraZeneca," Fauci said.

Rest in thunder, 2016 to 2020 Shelby GT350.

Your loss is so profoundly felt we’ve been casting about for some car—any car—to fill the hole in our heart. But that car won't be the new 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1. Not because it's not great, but because it's not supposed to be.
