The new Mustang has finally dropped. Some love it. Some hate it. Everybody’s talking about it. You’ve seen the pictures. You’ve read our awesome blog post. Now it’s time to find out what everybody else is saying, so we’ve dished up a heapin’ helpin’ of the industry’s top Mustang commentariat for this week’s Follow Friday. Keep up with these folks and make sure you’re getting the whole skinny on the skinny new Mustang.
If you were able to stomach today’s Good Morning America, you already know all this, but the sixth generation of the venerable Ford Mustang was unveiled this morning and will go on sale next year. The looks are striking, from the angry, bladed headlights to the long and satisfying fastback, right down to the sharp, pronounced shoulders and a ramping tail.
But there’s something rather tame about the lines, something that begs for sanity and balance. The power options, too, espouse a certain sensibility. So we have to wonder, without all the madness and absurdity is the Mustang still a muscle car? Or is it something else entirely? Continue reading
Cyber Monday means BIG SAVINGS at StreetSideAuto.com
Tomorrow’s Monday. It’s nearly a whole month until Christmas, and you demolished the last of your Thanksgiving leftovers on yesterday morning with those mashed potato pancakes. But fear not, good citizens of the internet, because StreetSide is here, like some kind of pasty, unkempt Santa Claus, to bring you a metric crap ton of phenomenal Cyber Monday deals. Yes, all of these deals are good through midnight on Monday before the portcullis slams closed. Check it: Continue reading
Black Friday is BURNOUT FRIDAY at SSA
Hopefully you survived this morning without having someone’s great aunt try to smother you with an alligator purse and take your $6 waffle iron. There are still more deals to be had this Black Friday, but thankfully, you don’t have to leave the security of your shop-zombie-proof home. Just head over to StreetSideAuto.com for some incredible deals. No vaccinations required, no wounds incurred.
Hopefully your Black Friday hasn’t become Black and Blue Friday, and you avoided getting trampled/tased/shanked with an emory board on your way to the blender department. But you were likely up at an absurd hour, pressing your body against that of a complete stranger for warmth, and uttering sale prices to yourself in order to stay sane, all in hopes of scoring some great deals. So you’re tired, sore, and hungry, and the best way to avoid thinking about a giant robot made of Walmarts rubbing its blue and brownstone palms together and laughing at your misery is to jump on Twitter. Here’s who to follow:
Mufflers are easy to install, so generally when we think about exhaust, we picture installing them in our driveways, trying not to let the passing traffic run over our ankles. What we don’t think about is how many legendary professional customizers use the very same Flowmaster mufflers we do. They just have the help of expensive lifts instead of crappy parts store floor jacks that aren’t to be trusted.
So we’ve gathered a few of our very favorite Flowmaster equipped custom classics. Continue reading
It’s cold out there, folks. Winter has arrived, and you’d rather be curled in a down comforter doing every kind of sleeping there is. We know it’s little consolation, but we’ll make things a little easier for you with this week’s edition of the Automotive Follow Friday Helper. Here’s who you should be following on Twitter. It’s on the house. Stay warm. The weekend is hours away.
Extang may or may not be an amalgam of Extra and Mustang (which wouldn’t make any sense at all), but they definitely make some incredible tonneau covers. They design them with obsessive precision and warranty them for life.
But not only do they make durable truck tonneau covers, they make several different kinds. I believe they did some extensive market research to determine their customers’ exact needs. Continue reading

It’s Friday again, and that means it’s time to figure out who to follow on Twitter. It also means the start of the weekend, but let’s stay focused, shall we? Continue reading
In many parts of our fair United States, the snow has already begun to fly. If you don’t believe me, look at your Facebook feed from this morning and make a tally of how many of your northern friends complained about it. But snow means mud and salt, and those mean messes. To keep those messes off your carpet, just throw down some floor mats. But not all floor mats are created equal. In fact, Husky Liners mats are born into privilege. Like any other floor mats, you can hose them off when they get dirty and put them back in. But Husky has much more to offer. Here are just five reasons Husky outshines the competition, even when caked in mud. Continue reading

Fox Shocks, or Fox Shox, as they prefer to call themselves, have been champions in off-road racing suspension since they opened up shop in the mid-‘70s. If you’re a fan of all things dirty and bumpy, you’ve probably seen their logo a thousand times. You might have a set in your truck or SUV (even if you don’t take it off road). But there are a few things you might not know about The Fox, and none of them have to do with *Ylvis. Here are nine more reasons to love Fox Racing Shocks…

Welcome to the best weekday every invented: friday. That’s right, folks. It’s a good day. But you stayed up way too late last night handing out candy/partying/shooting paintballs at those punks with their toilet paper so they’ll stay the crap away from your trees. That means you don’t want to spend a great deal of today’s small stipend of energy figuring out who to follow on twitter. Thankfully, on each post-party weekday, every member of our staff is issued…several…CCs of adrenaline to directly inject into our hearts at need. I used mine as soon as I clocked in, and I swiped my manager’s, too. So we’ll take care of all the automotive Twitter curation this morning. You just sit back, follow these awesome folks on Twitter, nurse that splitting headache, and enjoy this week’s Follow Friday Helper. And don’t ask me for any adrenaline. Continue reading
Yes, folks, it’s almost Halloween, the one day every year when it’s socially correct to frighten children. While we don’t encourage you to be the source of anyone’s childhood PTSD, we recommend a remote engine starter as the core of a good car-based prank: a Christine-like, deranged car ready to run down its poor, pedestrian victims.
Now, there’s nothing scary about a car starting. We hear that sound every time we walk through a parking lot. Even when an engine fires up right next to us, we merely look to make sure we’re not about to be backed over by a text addict. Continue reading
