Its been a long time since I offered you an easy to enter contest on the BLOG. I’m always requiring you to put forth effort to win Free Stuff! Which I know you enjoy and all…but consider this contest a reward for your efforts!!! But I must warn you, despite not having to take pictures and write endless essays, your entries better be good to win!

So what is this contest you say? Why it is the return of the American Muscle Drop Me A Line Contest! The details of the American Muscle Drop Me A Line Deux BLOG Contest are basically the same as last time. Come up with a single, solitary sentence on why I should give you $50. The top six entries will each receive a $50 Gift Certificate!

And just like last time, no pictures to take, long-winded stories to write, or hours of scavenger hunting are required for this one folks! Just one sentence! It is that easy! Entries will be judged on creativity and how much they make me want to either give you $50, or how much they make me want to close the email and bang my head against the desk weeping bitterly for the future of mankind…actually either one might get you $50!

AM My Hooptie Contest – Winners Announced! My Hooptie Contest – Over $300 In Prizes!
The Winners Have Been Announced!

The My Hooptie Contest has come to an end and it is time to announce the winners!

We had a ton of good entries, so selecting the winners was no easy process. But we believe that the cars we selected are the quintessential epitome of that which is Hooptie!

  • 1st Prize – Jesse N. of Tell City, IN:

    “My hooptie is a 1990 ford thunderbird! She has right around 200k miles on it and plenty of dents and marks that remind me of the fond memories. My father brought it brand new and when I turned 16 he gave it to me. It got me through my high school years and it’s not as gas efficient as it used to be so I use my ‘stang for college but when I want to go out and have fun without worrying about my ‘stang I take my hooptie!!

    You have to start it with a screw driver and push it to go reverse but other than that it’s great! My memories range from burning my tranny doing a burnout in reverse (stupid 16 y/o event) to taking a gravel road too fast and putting it in the creek. After all it’s my hooptie. It’s irreplaceable! Keep Rocking American Muscle!!”

    • 1st Place Prizes:

      • $150 American Muscle Gift Certificate

      • American Muscle T-Shirt
      • American Muscle Quarter Window Decals

  • 2nd Prize – Coradene M. of Antonito, CO:

    “I have so many memories and stories about my baby, it is hard to pick one. This is a 1996 Ford Mustang V6 3.8 and I have had this car since 2004. I am proudly the 3rd owner, and I have had the chance to sell her, but just can’t. Last summer I blew the motor and had to pay a mechanic $1700 for repairs. It took forever to re-build this engine and I waited patiently.

    After the repairs to the motor, I wanted to spice up the appearance as you see she is in dire need of a new coat of paint. I started with the small things first. A Chevy pick-up backed in to my car. The folks of this pick-up refused to pay the damages. So I paid for them on my own. I wanted to replace the headlights that they ‘knocked’ out-and I found out about American Muscle. I purchased these headlights, and waited patiently. About 1 week or so they had arrived UPS. I opened them up-and to my surprise-they were gorgeous!!!

    It took my dad so long to put them on-if seemed to be one excuse after another. He didn’t have the tools, he didn’t have bulbs, and finally he just didn’t have the time. I found a friend to put them on-and it took about 2 hours. I continued to wait patiently. My friend said that I had to purchase new bulbs, and so I did. I drove to a local automotive parts store and purchased new bulbs. I learned through this process to put the bulb in myself. So I did. I proudly put the bulbs in, and at last I was ready to be on the road again. I told the store clerk Thank You, and I walked out! I started my Mustang-and proceeded to back out and I wiped out my tail-lights! HA! Can you believe this! And to top it all off-it was another Chevy Pick-Up! So don’t be surprised to see an order for tail-lights!”

    • 2nd Place Prizes:

      • $100 American Muscle Gift Certificate

      • American Muscle T-Shirt
      • American Muscle Quarter Window Decals

  • 3rd Prize – Courtney O. of Jeffersonville, IN:


    “Hello, my name is Courtney, and I am a loyal customer of American muscle and I want to submit my entry for my Buick century 1995. It has 144,000 miles on it and I LOVE IT!!!! LOL my girlfriend hates the car but I can’t get rid of it. Only 1 window works and the driver’s side window motor just stopped working so I had to duct tape it to protect it from the rain LOL. I get attention all the time but for the wrong reasons LOL. People look at me like I’m scum and I just can’t help but laugh.

    The air conditioning doesn’t work and even though its summer time I still roll down my only working window halfway and enjoy the little breeze that I have in 94 degree weather LOL. Its missing a hubcap on both sides of the car LOL. I’ve blown 2 head gaskets but it’s been a true soldier! I have had it since it was new and I will NEVER get rid of it!! It’s so old that the rear-view mirror has fallen off twice, the windshield is cracked but I love it!! I am proud to say though that I just bought a 2004 Mustang GT 40th anniversary edition but I still have my BUICK LOL. Please look at these pictures as my words don’t do it justice! LOL”
