Modified Mustangs & Fords was the merger of Mustang & Fords with Modified Mustangs. The consolidation was orchestrated by Source Interlink Media in 2008, and it combined the classic Mustangs (1965 through Mustang II) featured in Mustang & Fords with the performance oriented later model Mustangs of Modified Mustangs.
This change was not without controversy from readers when it happened. The lovers of classic Mustangs felt that the last great pre-1973 Mustang magazine was gone. They missed articles geared to restoration of mechanical components.
Meanwhile, the original focus of Modified Mustangs on highly modified 4 and 6 cylinder cars carried forward into the new title even though the original editor, Huw Evans, was long gone. These readers hated the mixed content featuring classic Mustangs.
Both groups noted the much heavier advertising. One wag referred to the magazine as a "bikini catalog". No one was very happy.
The publisher re-positioned the content and offered "100% classic Ford" features starting in 2010. This likely made the classic Mustang readers happy, and the performance oriented readers still had Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords.
The end was announced in May, 2014 when Source Interlink Media decided to rebrand as TEN: The Enthusiast Network and indicated the planned closure of over a dozen titles. Modified Mustangs & Fords ended with the August, 2014 issue.
