Vaughn Gittin Jr.’s Mustang is an oddity in professional drifting; his RTR team sets his car up like a dirt track car, though he runs in Formula Drift. It’s called weight jacking and it produces what you see here. The car basically wants to lift a front wheel. Then it wants to wheelie.
Genuinely, I think the toughest part that these two had in fixing up this ‘69 Mach 1 was not getting hantavirus. This car was filled with shit, literally. I assume the poop was why such a desirable car had sat in a Colorado junkyard all these years.

You may have been looking for me. I am not there. I am away, here, secluded at my Space House living on the Ghia Planet.
Rather, this is what happens when you put Vaughn Gittin Jr.’s Formula Drift Mustang on Barcelona’s F1 circuit. Turns three and four, all 3,200 feet of them, linked and shredded.
Kenneth H. Blockenheimer recently revealed that his AWD-converted ‘66 Mustang with a Roush-Yates V8 now has twin turbos and runs on methanol. What is it like to warm up one such engine? Toasty.
Sales of the Ford Mustang are down here in the United States of America. Good.
This weekend finally saw a moment of harmony between Mustang and Camaro drivers, when two ‘Stangs and a ‘Maro shut down traffic on San Francisco’s Bay Bridge to do donuts. They were almost immediately snitched on and arrested.
