Ford Mustang Mach

Well, it's October 17, 2013, and I'm writing my first editorial for the 2014 issue year. Our January issue with the Car of the Year story sort of represents a review of the previous year more than a kick off for the new year. It makes sense as well, seeing as how you'll likely be reading this around the second week of December.

As we're celebrating this year's Car of the Year winner in this issue, the Mach 40 that adorns this month's cover is certain to be in the running for 2014, given its incredible amount of fabrication and unique design. You can check out the build photos and more detailed info on the build where you'll find MM&F web editor Amie William's take on the car build. The Mach 40 reeled in a lot of attention at last year's SEMA show, and I think a great many of the onlookers would have passed it up if they hadn't spotted the 5.4-liter cammer engine in the back window.

And speaking of the SEMA show, the 2013 edition of said show is just around the corner, and it looks like there is going to be another great round of stunning builds for us to bring to you. This year, Amie Williams, and Scott Parker will be bringing you two exclusive web articles the week of the show. First up will be a sneak peak at all of the hot rides on display, and then the following day we'll cover the hottest new products for our market. It's part of our company's growing strategy to get the most current information to you as soon as possible.

Another part of that growing strategy is a long overdue redesign of our website. We expect to see that rolled out in the next few months—the digital team is tackling all four of Source's Mustang/Ford publications at the same time—and I'm pretty excited from what I have seen so far. Look for more information on that change in our news section in the months to come.
