Ford Mustang as a Family Car?


The transmission/gear shop that is working on the Fox Body called me earlier this week and said they had finished installing the new ring and pinion in the rear end but they had concerns about one of the axles. The car is 33ish years old and has over 140,000 miles on it so I asked them to go ahead and replace both axles while they still had it. I remain hopeful that I’ll be able to pick the car up before the weekend. Fingers crossed.

In the meanwhile, my latest video is up on the Taco Potato Mustang YouTube channel and we attempt (partially at least) to address whether or not the 2014 Ford Mustang GT can be used as a “family car”. More specifically, I tested installations on two separate infant (rear-facing) car seats in the Dudestang – the Doona Infant Convertible Car Seat and the Baby Jogger City GO 2 Infant Car Seat. You can see and learn more here:

In case this post didn’t make the news clear, my wife and I are expecting a baby soon. 🙂 We’re slightly terrified but more excited than anything. Most of the past few weeks have been focused on getting the house ready and attempting (to the extent possible) to get ourselves ready.

Our decision to purchase the Forester almost a year ago ended up being the right one, considering the state of the automotive market for the past 8 months or so. Needless to say, we were glad to not have “search for a new car” included on our list of things to do as we wait for our baby to arrive. The Forester will serve as our primary family vehicle but I wanted to test the capabilities of the Dudestang as a backup baby transporter, in case of emergency. Anyways, I hope anyone in a similar situation finds the video helpful. Thanks for reading and for watching.
