8 On the dragstrip, we were hampered by one-wheel traction and really old rubber. Still, the Mustang trotted to a 15.46 at 92 mph. A timing adjustment led to better speeds, but we couldn’t get the short times down. The results were a 15.51 at 93.40 mph, and a 15.40 at 93.90 mph. Our best 60-foot time of the day came in at a snail-like 2.51 seconds. We probably could have dropped another two tenths off our elapsed times had we been able to utilize all of the available horsepower from the 289.
