Drifting 5.0 Mustangs

I knew that eventually we'd see a couple of these. These cars come with a ton of low end torque right out of the box, they're fairly lightweight, and cheap to buy. Although stock they're aren't the ultimate candidate, like most 5.0s they can be modifed to work very well for whatever your intended purpose is!

Here's the original Drift Patrol Mustang driven by Daniel Pina. "The concept of the "Drift Patrol" came to Daniel Pina in 2002. Being a full time student at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, required the car be inexpensive. We finally located a 1987 Mustang suitable for the project in March of 2004. In November of 2004, Dan debut the "Drift Patrol"during a Pro Drift Demo at the Subaru Rim of the World Pro Rally held in Lancaster, CA. The car gained huge popularity, even granting Dan a TV interview with Primero Impacto, international latin television station." To see more on Drift Patrol click on the link...

I came upon this blog not too long ago and it's a real grassroots take on a guy and his Mustang GT - on a mission to make his 5.0 Drift and how he's doing it. There's some good feeback, reference and some viseo on his efforts.
