With 2009 rapidly approaching, the MM&FF staff would like to wish everybody a safe and happy new year. For most of us, 2008 was exciting and trying at the same time. We enjoyed dozens of memorable moments, such as celebrating our 20th Anniversary with an amazing party during the NMRA event at Atco Raceway, attending the dozens of awesome Ford races and shows, and we had the opportunity to travel to Japan thanks to the folks at Nitto tires. Along the way we strengthened friendships and made many new ones.

Looking ahead to '09 brings excitement and also new challenges. In these difficult economic times, many will find it harder to buy parts and get out to events. Still, we know the passion that rages within each and every enthusiast-and that drives us to produce the best possible product. Having a dedicated staff and solid resources allows us bring you the biggest and best late-model Mustang magazine on the market. As we move forward look for more hardcore tech, even more web-based material, including web-exclusive features, videos and more.

MM&FF is committed to the market and to the readers so we'll be at every NMRA event in 2009, and we're planning to attend many other events such as the 45th Anniversary of the Mustang, the Fab Fords at Knotts Berry Farm, as well as various other shows and races. We're excited about '09 and with that we would like to wish all of you a happy new year. And since 2008 was so good, we've included outtakes from our travels, we hope you enjoy.
