Ford Mustang SVO autocross Video:

Here is a great autocross video from inside a Ford Mustang SVO. The Mustang SVO is probably my favorite Mustang of all time. The later SVO's had 205HP and 240 lbs. ft. torque out of it's small 2.3 liter turbo engine. Matched with a light weight body, special adjustable suspension and sport seats. The 1984-1986 Ford Mustang SVO was a very special pony! Many have said this was one of the best handling cars of the 1980's.. you can see why so many of the Mustang SVO's are seen on the autocross track. I would love to do a "Wall Poster Classics" segment on the Mustang SVO if the opportunity ever arises to drive and review one.

I really hope Ford takes a look back at great Mustangs like the SVO and does away with that ancient live rear axle they put on the new Mustang. Sometimes the best way to move forward is to look back!
