Beating the Odds: SCT Tuner Giveaway

Four weeks. Four SCT Tuners. Four winners. Not too bad, if you ask me.

As we said from the start, your odds of winning an SCT Power Flash Tuner with us were better than winning the lottery (at least $10k), getting struck by lightning, becoming President (of the United States), finding out you are actually a superhero, or getting lucky with Britney Spears.SCT Tuner

If anyone reading this actually won the lottery, became President, or any of the others during our giveaway, and did not win an SCT tuner, please tell us about your good fortune. We love good fiction. In the meantime, we’d like to congratulate our four lucky winners, and everyone who entered.

Week 1: Jake Stahlecker, 2008 GT Coupe
Week 2: Nick Thompson, 2003 Mach 1
Week 3: James Carr, 2008 GT/CS Coupe
Week 4: Dean Casanova, 1998 V6 Coupe

Stay tuned for more great contests coming soon on our blog and AmericanMuscle.com.

Modified Mishaps: 10 Mustangs That Went Wrong

Modifying Mustangs has been around since, well, since April 17, 1964, the day the original pony car first launched. Since then, countless owners of the iconic muscle cars have worked tirelessly to make them stand out in the crowd.

For me, I’ll take a nice race-tuned Cobra in classic white with blue strips. Or, black on black is always a good choice. But then I’ve been known to take more of a utilitarian approach to Mustang mods: If it makes it go faster, improve handling or stop better, it’s good, regardless of appearance.

Sadly, not all Mustang owners share this simple philosophy. Over the years pictures have come forward of highly modified Mustangs that went wrong—way wrong. Below are some of my all-time favorites. Perhaps the most staggering point to consider is that most of these were not built on a whim, but rather through hundreds of hours of painstaking labor backed by thousands, or in some cases, dozens of dollars.

We hope you enjoy, and look forward to your comments regarding these Mustang mishaps…
