Dennis Aungst shares the story on this 1965 Ford Mustang 2+2, "Our ride is a kind of different twist on the Mustang. We wanted something that stands out from the herd with so many cookie cutter Mustangs out there. We started with a vintage "Trans Am" race car style build believing that pony cars were built to handle well. Most cars seem to be built around the engine, but ours wasn't. We designed the suspension and built around that. Many people also use the word unique in their build, but we do have a chassis that is one of a kind. This unique road racing style tube chassis was designed for a rear sump engine and to be completely bolt on with minimal body modification. It incorporates front steer spindles, manual rack and pinion steering, manual SSBC 4 wheel disc brakes with cross drilled rotors, 17" Billet Specialties Apex G wheels, and Afco adjustable coil over racing shocks. To compliment the handling and braking package, no ordinary engine would do. We wanted something with a vintage road racing feel so we started with a 5.0 out of a 93 fox body and stroked it to a 347 cubic inch rear sump engine. With 9.5 to 1 compression, this car was built to drive one pump gas as well. A Weber quad IDF with isolated runner induction, Holman/Moody Valve Covers, and custom plug wire routing through the carbs are the real attention getter of the engine compartment. The four carburetors and velocity stacks reminiscent of the cobras and GT40s providing people with the opportunity to ask many tuning questions and us with a very stout low end torque for autocross events. Brodix ST 5.0 aluminum cnc ported heads, a Comp Cams "Xtreme Energy" EFI roller cam with "Ultra Gold" aluminum roller rockers, MSD Street Fire ignition, JBA 1 5/8" tube shorty stainless headers, add to the engine to produce a healthy 450 horsepower powerplant. Backing the engine is a custom built G-Force Strengthened 26 spline T5 5 speed manual transmission, a McLeod Super Street Pro Clutch and flywheel package, Quicktime bell housing, and Modern Driveline Cable clutch conversion for smooth operation. The 1963 Galaxie 9" rear differential housing is narrowed to '65 Mustang specs with a 31 spline carrier, Moser Axles, Large torino style axle bearings, and 4 wheel SSBC disc brake conversion. In the racing theme, we wanted the interior to represent the look as well, but didn't want to lose the original feel. That meant a custom upholstery which not only looked great, but worked well. We changed the seat padding and upholstery materials, so the seats looked like a very nice original style interior, but sit like race buckets when you get in the car to hold the driver while cornering. These are complimented with 3" Shelby style race belts. The interior is black and tan vinyl that appears to be a leather material. There is a full New Vintage dash and gauge package to monitor all the action under the hood. A radio delete plate cleans up the dash and a solitary replica locking floor shift comes through the round shift boot between the front seats. The Ididit tilt steering column allowed the use of the original steering wheel. The wiring was upgraded to a American Autowire Classic Update series harness that was modified for the vehicle for a clean look and safe operation. The car was painted with a Lesonal Ivy Green Metallic close to the original Ivy green paint of the car after an extensive body reconstruction. It was also debadged and Stripe Delete for the stripped down race car effect. All LED exterior lighting was used for night time visibility including all LED headlamps and driving lights in the GT grill. This car is driven everywhere rain or shine and our plans are to participate in the Hot Rod power Tour. Hope you enjoyed my submission. Many more photos of the build are available."

A Fellow Racer From Right Here in the Columbus, OH Area:

https://www.youcaring.com/erika-newcome-585834

Erika Newcome was born in Akron Ohio 21 years ago and is a Columbus Ohio Native. Erika started racing Quarter Midgets at the age of 8. Racing has and continues to be her passion. She has won 13 championships on racetracks as far as California to Florida. For the last 3 years she has raced late model in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series. Erika was voted most popular late model driver 2015 at her home track, Columbus Motor Speedway. Erika’s greatest achievement in the racing sport was to be selected to compete in the NASCAR Diversity Combine tryouts in the fall 2015. Erika hopes to attend again this year.
Erika should be entering her 4th year at The University of Akron this fall where she is majoring in Public Relations with a minor in Marketing. She has hopes of making a connection for her future with her PR Diploma and entering into NASCAR. While in college, Erika works for The University as well as well as weekends and holidays at Jegs High Performance Racing.
However, Erika who has always been in good health recently was complaining of persistent pain in her shoulder So she made an appointment to see the doctor on May 18th who sent her for ultrasounds and cat scans. When the results came back Erika was sent to the hospital and admitted. She was diagnosed with stage 4 Sarcoma Cancer.
Chemo was scheduled for the middle of June but the oncologist at The James suggested trying a new pill first, which she is currently taking. At this point Erika is living day by day until her next Pet scan on July 5th. She then will find out if the pill is working on the cancer.
While over the years, great strides have been made for the cure and/or treatment of different cancers unfortunately they all come with a cost. So please anything that you can give to help this wonderful young lady who is so full of life and her family with the overwhelming cost of treatments and/or medicines would very helpful and appreciative. All money raised will go to help the Newcome family with the overwhelming expenses that are accruing during this very hard time.

Thank you so much!
