Third generation Mustangs — those built from 1979 to 1993 — may very well be history's most popular performance car. After all, they were immortalized in pop culture and spent more than a decade at the top of the performance food chain.

I haven't found a series that does a better job illuminating the subject of manufacturing than National Geographic's Ultimate Factories.
When you restore or customize your ride, it's difficult to do it well if you don't understand where it came from or how it was put together. If your serious about your hobby and it involves being hip deep in your car's parts, then Ultimate Factories is a must-see.
Although this is a review of the series, it's also a guide that references every single episode I could find with a perspective geared specifically towards the automotive enthusiast.
Check it out and enjoy!
