AMStanger

AMStanger started life as Emily Wood. She fell in love with the automotive industry, and the Mustang in particular, at her first job working as a cashier at a mom and pop auto store. Since then, she’s held just about every job in the retail automotive field. Though she’s never been formally trained as a mechanic, she’s never shied away from taking something apart or working on her own car. She likes to defy stereotypes and get her hands dirty, but she does get tired of being called ‘dude’ all the time. In her time, AMStanger/Emily has served as a parts slinger at one of the biggest auto parts retailers in the country, worked as a service writer at another industry giant, and has served as an installer and a commercial specialist when needed. She spends most of her time on several large Mustang forums, and is pretty sure she has the best job in the world.

August Ride of the Month Winners

Grand Prize Winner: Ron’s 2009 Bullitt!

Wheel style & size: 18 x 9  and 18 x 10

Tire brand & size: NT555   255/45 & 285/40

Ron’s Mustang Bullitt has an impressive list of modifications. An Edelbrock E-Force Street-Legal Supercharger has bumped his dyno numbers up to 427RWHP and 396 RWTQ. With a Dynotech 3.5″ aluminum driveshaft, a BMR driveshaft loop and 4.10 Ford Racing gears, Ron’s making the most of all that horsepower. In order to help him harness all that power, the Bullitt now features a Steeda adjustable panhard rod, a CHE K-frame brace with Q-Limiters, BMR billet lower control arms, and Koni Yellow shocks and struts.

Ron hasn’t neglected his Bullitt’s appearance for the sake of performance, though. He’s added sequential tail lights and satin tail light trim, plus a chrome surround for the rear panel and a blackout panel. DG window louvers, smoked front turn signals with stealth bulbs, and SHR lower grille inserts round out his exterior mods. In terms of the interior, the ’09 features Autometer wideband air/fuel and boost gauges on an SOS double gauge pillar mount.
