Looks can certainly be deceiving, as the driver of this Ford Mustang found out when he put his ride up against a rickety and rusted out Ford pickup truck. The pickup isn’t much to look at, but once the race starts, it becomes abundantly clear that this bad boy can hold its own. The truck gets off the starting line like a rocket, putting a ton of distance between it and the Mustang in a very short amount of time, and it appeared for a bit like it would leave the Mustang in its dust.
After getting caught napping at the starting line, the Mustang does make up ground and at least make it a race in the end. We have a feeling things would have turned out differently if they had been running a quarter-mile instead of 1/8, because we don’t think the Mustang needed too much more room to take the lead. Regardless, both racers showed us something, and certainly knew how to put on a good show. What do you guys think – you rather have this fox body Mustang or the old beat-up Ford truck?
