Old Stig approves of the new Mustang

11 November, 2015

The all-new Ford Mustang has been singled out as being the ultimate stunt car by Ben Collins — best remembered for his role as Stig on a certain BBC TV motoring programme.

Collins — whose movie stunt-driving credits include Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, Spectre, Mission Impossible, and The Dark Knight Rises — has just completed filming on his own film, Ben Collins: Stunt Driver. Check out the video of Collins discussing the Ford performance line-up back in September, 2015:

In that film, a Ford Mustang beats an array of high-performance road and competition cars during 48 hours of explosive, high-speed challenges featuring aerobatic planes, helicopter gunships, and military machines.

The Jowett Jupiter turns 70

John Ball has always enjoyed tinkering with old boats and cars. He’s old enough to think having gearbox parts on newspaper on the floor of his bedroom, while the relevant car sat waiting on nail boxes, was a normal part of growing up. His passion has always tended towards old British bangers. He reckons he’s fortunate not to have got caught up in the American muscle scene.
John’s love affair with this Jupiter started in December 2015 when, with some time on his hands during a Christchurch trip, he searched online for ‘cars, before 1970 and in Christchurch’.
