December 31, 2012 Mustang News No Comments


All this week I will be posting about the year in review and the first one is about the most popular Ford Mustang wrecks of 2012.  During the year we had several bone headed Mustang drivers crash their Boss 302’s, Shelby GT500’s and even one drag racer crash a $90K+ 2013 Cobra Jet.  Most of these crashes are unforeseen accidents while others are pure stupidity but in the end we are glad the drivers made made it out to drive again another day.
