MotoGP: Pirro to substitute for Crutchlow in Argentina

Cal Crutchlow will not be fit in time to represent Ducati Team in Argentina as he continues to recover from his accident in Austin and subsequent surgery.

After Crutchlow’s crash in the race at Austin, the British rider had initially been diagnosed with a dislocated right little finger, but further checks at a specialized centre in San Diego revealed that he had also suffered a tiny fracture of the finger and as a result it was decided that he should undergo a small operation to insert a stabilizing pin.

In the run up to the big 50th anniversary of the Mustang, prices of the classic first version of the Mustang, the 1964½ (technically a 1965 model) through 1966, have been moving up. The best convertibles and fastbacks with the highest horsepower engines can bring well over $65,000 and there has been renewed interest in vintage Mustangs of all years. All isn’t lost however for the Mustang collector on a budget. Here are five of our favorites that you can still afford:

1. 1964½-66 Convertible (six cylinder)

If you simply must have the first version of the Mustang in a convertible and have $25,000 or less to spend on a nice one, well then you’re likely to have to settle for the six-cylinder model instead of the 260 or 289 V-8. And the six of the ’60s was nothing like today’s 300-plus hp base V-6. Nope, the 200-cubic-inch straight-six was good for just 120 hp, so performance was leisurely at best. No matter; the six still looked great.
