Fast Ford - - INTRO - - Jamie King - Ed­i­tor

an you be­lieve this is the last is­sue of Fast Ford to go on sale be­fore Christ­mas!? Yikes. I haven't even started get­ting stuff ready for the hol­i­days yet!

But, if any­one's look­ing for gift ideas for me, the bright red Mus­tang from the cover of this is­sue would go down per­fectly... pretty please.

The su­per­charged 750bhp mon­ster may even be up for sale soon, as owner Alan Farmer has al­ready got eyes on his next project, and the Mus­tang has served its pur­pose as a demo car for Alan's busi­ness, renowned Ford tuners Pum­abuild.

And the rea­son I've fallen for Alan's Mus­tang has prob­a­bly got a lot to do with the V8-pow­ered GT I've been do­ing donuts and skids in at one of Paul Swift's Stunt Ex­pe­ri­ence days (see page 36) or the awe­some RTR Spec 2 demo car I've been driv­ing (see page 24) this month. Maybe I should have bought a Mus­tang in­stead of the Fo­cus RS...?

Not af­ter the moun­tune m400 kit I've had fit­ted! My love for my RS is stronger now than it ever has been! You can see that from my lat­est project up­date. In which case, maybe I should take a leaf out of Dar­rell Hobbs' book and have both? This guy's worked his fingers to the bone to feed his fast Ford habit, and he now owns a trio of stun­ning Blue Ovals – and he's now start­ing on a fourth! Read his full story on page 50. This month, it's also my great plea­sure to wel­come Paul Lin­foot to the Fast Fleet. I've known Paul for years, and as well as fea­tur­ing his cars he has al­ways been an in­valu­able source of knowl­edge for me and the mag. On top of that, his ban­ter is le­gendary and al­ways brings a smile! So I'm de­lighted to wel­come Paul to the 'Fleet', and look for­ward to see­ing how he pro­gresses with build­ing and rac­ing his RS500 Tour­ing Car, but you can read all about that on page 71. We've also got Chris Wicks' awe­some track-ready EsCos, An­drew Johns' widearch Fo­cus ST, and one of the best known cars in the whole Ford scene, Ian Tay­lor's Mk3 Fo­cus ST. This is­sue re­ally is packed with some good stuff, and I hope en­joy it. Oh, and if I don't see you be­fore, Merry Christ­mas!
