Easily the best and largest display at the 2010 Chicago Auto Show, Ford’s awesome orgy of engines, transmissions, and Mustangs nearly killed attendees unprepared for such excitement.
On display were cross-sections of the new 6-speed transmissions, the new 305 hp V6 motor, the new 412 hp 5.0-liter V8, AND the new aluminum 550 hp 5.4-liter V8, that will rip the tires off the three new stallions consisting of the base Mustang, Mustang GT, and GT500, respectively.
I grew a mustache just by walking past the display. I saw three boys go through puberty just by staring at the new 5.0 Coyote motor. Women started dancing.
So many were hypnotized by this movable muscle menagerie that they stampeded the futuristic ladies at the Fiat 500 display in a desperate effort to pre-order 2011 Mustangs. I only wish they had the hoods open on the 2011 ‘Stangs.
