Anyone who’s ever driven a classic stock Ford Mustang will know it has its faults. That doesn’t mean it’s not a great car, but when it comes to racing, old Mustangs have their drawbacks. But damn do they look fantastic. There’s just something about them.

Mike Maier from Maier Racing asked himself that very question and he built a solution.
