***NEW*** 2010 Mustang seats revealed!

September 27, 2008

The 2010 Ford Mustang teaser shots are still coming through – with the latest pic being one of the new-for-2009 (MY10) pews.

Here you can clearly see that the retro theme is continued on the inside into the seating to give feel of being back in a late-60’s / early-70’s Mustang. Gee, they certainly look like they are calling out to you! Also, note the higher centre console which could be another ergonomic factor that the interior designers are onto. Stay tuned to FNB for more teaser shots before the November L.A MotorShow reveal…

Fords’ “cost-cutting” exec. ‘cuts’ himself…

September 20, 2008

After being employed by FoMoCo for nearly 25 years & recently being Ford’s Global Product Development Operations Controller, David Prystash has left FoMoCo for a position within another company. Despite the quite insipid title, David is famous for Ford’s ‘cost-cutting’ measures over the recent years – so perhaps we should expect them to be done away with? All that we do know is that when he officially leaves Ford (22.9.08), he is off to fill in the position of chief financial officer & senior vice president of NewPage Corp. of Miamisburg, Ohio.
