Real Drivers: 1985 Ford Mustang 5.0 (Drag Racer)

Astute viewers will notice that this film has been up for some time on the YouTube channel, and that it was shot last August. But while it was released in November, this piece on Michael Murphy's 1985 drag-prepped 5.0 Mustang was one that will stand out to me for a long time and one that will stick with me for every car I work on and own. Murphy's philosophy toward cars and toward project vehicles was one of the most genuinely inspiring that I've heard, and whether you're a Ford fan or not, it's worth hearing Murphy talk about his 5.0, its journey, and the work that goes into every tenth that he has taken off each time slip.
