+1 "REAL men" didn't need disc brakes Chug a Lug Same for power steering , it was "steering by Armstrong" back then. Danica would have have more trouble than she already has.

^^^Yes they did, "...they work fine on the stock cars and they go fast..." was the basic thinking!

     Heck, back in about 1977(?) (when I was "younger & dumber"; well..... I might not be much smarter now?) the hydraulic brakes failed in my 72 Mach1, and I still drove it every day to work for six months or so before repairing them. You learn how to plan ahead, read other driver intentions, "scrub" speed, a lot of defencive steering maneuvers, and kinda get use to it after a while. HeadSpin

    Remember, in the era of the previous mustangs, just because you hold the reins, doesn't mean the horse will stop! Head knock
