Robert Downey Jr.’s 1970 Ford Boss 302 Mustang—much like the actor himself—is a testament to the possibilities of a later in life resurrection. This thing is a damn near perfect example of a restomod gone completely right. What started as a first-gen Boss 302 was gutted in favor of a modern 5.0-liter V8 with a supercharger, which means it outputs more than 650 horsepower. It also got an aftermarket aluminum frame, a “pro touring” QuadraLink suspension, one-off HRE wheels, analog gauge cluster, updated interior, carbon-fiber body pieces and a unique paint job. Before you send the Mustang mafia after us for supporting modifications some would consider sacrilegious, the entire build was performed by the experts at Wisconsin-based SpeedKore with input from RDJ throughout the process. If the name SpeedKore sounds familiar, it’s because their cars have taken home plenty of awards from shows like SEMA and also appeared in multiple Fast and the Furious films.

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
