Ford Mustangs do a lot of things. They do decent 0-to-60 times. They do really fast 0-to-60 times. They drive in big circles. They screech down drag strips like supersonic prehistoric birds. They frighten onlookers at Cars and Coffee. They honor famous movies. And, sometimes, they even try to go to the movies.
On Wednesday, a post popped up on a Facebook group for regional Porsche Club of America members saying Texas World Speedway, a near place of pilgrimage for amateur racers slated to become a neighborhood, wouldn’t be bulldozed for housing after all. The developer would not confirm or deny this to Jalopnik.
For years, the Texas Relays Car Show and Donk Contest in Austin brought a passionate but sometimes misunderstood car culture into the spotlight around one of Texas’ biggest track and field events. But this year, the show’s fate is uncertain after its organizer apparently invested funds in what turned out to be a scam…
If I found myself in possession of a 505 horsepower, rear-wheel-drive Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, the first thing I’d do would be to take it to a track day and powerslide the living bejeezus out of it. And apparently that kind of behavior would get me triple black-flagged in a single day. Update: The organizer…
If you hopped into a Suzuki Every Turbo and hoofed your way across the tornado-prone plains, would you get wind-blown off the road to a grisly and crumply death? Probably! But this guy survived it.
German is a language with a lot of dialects, with different spellings and accents and incomprehensibilities. Germany is a young country, and its language has strong regional distinctions. Also Texas.
Police in Texas chasing a bull around a residential neighborhood in Arlington might be the most stereotypical Texas thing ever caught on video.

What would you do for a 55 gallon drum of fuel?
Things went from very bad to even worse for a lumber truck driver in Texas today when he blew a tire, crashed, and then caught on fire. And found himself dangling halfway off an overpass.
So here I am reading through a rather lengthy debate on whether or not Amarillo is in West Texas or the Panhandle, and I wonder if it's really so hard to define a geographic region as simple as "West Texas."
So, you can have lowriders fight each other?
Well, this could be one of the code brown scariest dashcam crashes I've ever seen. Dr. Guan Zhu, a professor at Texas A&M University, happened to have a dashcam running in his Toyota Sienna yesterday when a concrete truck ran a red light, overturned, and barreled straight at him.
I would guess that rule number one of fire bombing a car is don't stand directly over your molotov cocktail. But hey, what do I know? I'm not an expert in this kind of thing.
On June 15th, three people stopped to help a stranded car on the side of the road when they were hit by a drunk driver. The drunk driver survived, but he killed the four people, and paralyzed one of his passengers. Why is he not in jail? Because he's too rich to control his own actions.
'Int'l Players Anthem:' Outkast and UGK, together, over Willie Hutch's 'I Choose You.' There's only one thing that it's missing and that's a bunch of bashing, sliding, tire-slaying VIP Japanese sedans.
Yesterday was Slab Fest down in Houston and police presence was strong. How strong? One cop car joined the parade and popped his trunk with the best of the city's Slow Low And Bangin customs.
