  1. If I'm not mistaken, the recommended 1972 leaded octane rating for the 351C-2V was 91, so I'm putting unleaded premium in my convertible. Under hard acceleration, I'm still getting ping and always back off to avoid damage. What can I add to the unleaded to reduce/stop ping? She just had a complete physical a month ago, so timing, advance, etc. should all be factory spec. Thanks in advance.
  2. I'm rather shocked to read Ford is serious about using "Mustang-inspired" stuff for its upcoming crossover EV. CarBuzz says Mustang DNA is sorely needed in the rest of the Ford lineup, but I think anything Mustang applied to other vehicles is dangerous. Ford even owns the trademark name "Mustang Mach-E". Your thoughts? (If there is ample discussion on older threads, would someone point those out? I went back to April this year before posting this.)
