AmericanMuscle.com My First Car Contest – Over $300 In Prizes!
The Winners Have Been Announced!

The AmericanMuscle.com My First Car Contest is finally over and it is time to announce the winners! With over 100 entries to this contest, it took some serious time to read everyone’s stories.

While all the entries were very good, and some of them quite entertaining, we narrowed it down and selected the top three entries. So sit back and relax and get ready to reminisce about your early vehicular days while checking out the winning stories below.

  • 1st Prize – Dennis H. of Victoria, MN:
        

    “As much as I loved my ‘first true love’ (the Mustang), it was her who helped introduce me to my life-long love, my wife, Kathy.”

    “For some reason that I couldn’t have comprehended at the time, I asked Kathy if she want to drive my Mustang. My roommate was aghast. I didn’t let other people drive the Mustang, not my roommate, not the other girls I had dated, no one.”

    • 1st Place Prizes:

      • $150 American Muscle Gift Certificate

      • American Muscle Quarter Window Decals

  • 2nd Prize – Patrick K. of Bethesda, MD:
             

    “Being my first car I wanted to start doing things to make it better, and just to mess around, and also for maintenance. First of all my sister had put a JVC head unit in, so I wanted to get more use out of that, so I took out the rear speakers and wired in my home big box stereo speakers…”

    “After awhile the headliner started falling down so I had to thumb tack that up there.”

    “I then put on some chrome hubcaps, but back then I did not realize what the wire was for and figured I should cut it to get it to fit…bad idea…”

    • 2nd Place Prizes:

      • $100 American Muscle Gift Certificate

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

  • 3rd Prize – Lance L. of Homer Glen, IL:

    “As if the car was not bad enough, my sister had driven the car previously, and got personalized plate reading “DRIZZLE7″.”

    “Imagine if you will, it’s about 95 degrees outside, and you run about 5 miles. You finally finish with all the running, completely exhausted, and go back to your car only to drive. Hop in struggling to breathe from the run, and drive home with the HEAT on full blast because that is the only way to keep the car from overheating.”

    “I was forced to take a few bungee cord and wrap them around the driver’s side inner door molding and connect the bungees to the passenger side. Any time you turn to the right, you would have to hold the door with all your might to keep it from swinging open.”

    “So now it is past midnight, 0 degrees outside, and I am stuck INSIDE the car. I attempt to do everything, the windows were frozen shut and after going crazy on the car (kicking at the doors, etc…), I conceded to the vehicle.”

AmericanMuscle to Dominate 2008 Race Season With Mustang Type-R

Click to enlarge!

AmericanMuscle to dominate 2008 Race Season with the release of its Multi-Purpose Ultimate Race Edition Mustang Type-R. The Mustang Type-R is expected to compete and win in NASCAR, Formula1, Indy Car, All Classes of NHRA and NMRA Drag Racing, Mud Wrestling, and the 24 Hour LeMans.

We carefully studied the fastest 4 cylinder import performance cars that we have seen in our area and said, “hey…why can’t we apply these time proven methods to a V6 or even a V8!” So we did, and now we believe that we have truly created the ultimate driving machine!

Performance Modifications:

  • Quint Supercharger Sticker – This sticker replicates all the performance of having 5 superchargers without the extra weight on your car and lets the world know we are serious about performance. We slapped this baby right on our black painted headlights for high contrast performance!
  • Type-R Stickers – The true power of this Mustang comes from its numerous strategically placed Type-R stickers and badges. Each one alone has no problem multiplying the performance of this vehicle by tenfold!
  • Chrome Plated NAZ Bottle – We mounted the Chrome Plated NAZ bottle in front of the radiator in the engine bay so the world could see through our open grille that we are running NAZ. To help save weight, we ditched the heavy plumbing to inject the NAZ into the motor and only hooked the bottle to the Purge Valve.
  • Massive Aluminum Rear Wing – Not only does it look cool, but we are pretty sure it adds some serious horsepower to the rear!
  • Cut Mufflers – We wanted to get the biggest exhaust tips we could on this baby so we took a Sawzall to the mufflers and cut the back of the muffler off! From there we were able to gut the inside of the muffler which effectively saved weight and gave us almost 13 inch wide exhaust tips!
  • Quad Euro-Style Screw-On Fog Lights – In order to increase the aerodynamics and horsepower output of our front end, we strategically screwed Euro-style fog lights into the bumper and the chin spoiler. We went with a twin-yellow light coupled with a twin-blue light combo to increase the area of our powerband.
  • Triple Aluminum Drag Racing Hood Scoops – To complete the competition look of our Mustang we glued triple aluminum hood scoops to our hood. Not only did this boost our performance, but we have two more scoops then any top-fueler in the NHRA!
  • Extensive Under The Hood Modifications – We replaced factory inlet tube with 11 inline electric superchargers and stabilized their combined 250CFM airflow with twin Turbonators.
  • Solid Chrome Hubcaps – These Solid Chrome Hubcaps completely hide the factory 16 inch rims for a sleek aerodynamic look, helping to further multiply the horsepower output of our motor. Horsepower Output Chart before and after hubcap installation.
  • Bright Purple Paint Job – Our Bright Purple Paint really screams performance to the point where we fear officials might not even let us compete if they think the advantage it gives us might constitute cheating.
  • Fast Looking Stickers – We found the fastest looking stickers we could to help boost performance and slapped them wherever they could fit.
  • Cool Japanese Character Sticker – We are not quite sure what it means, but according to the eBay seller we got bought it from these stickers are all the rage in the JDM…whatever that means.
  • Extensive Stereo Modifications – We removed the back seat and passenger seat and we were able to squeeze 17 total subwoofers inside the car. To achieve the most intimidating sound possible we removed the spare tire and any and all sound dampening material inside the car and filled the spare tire well with marbles. Surprisingly this gave us one of the highest performance gains over any other mod we did!
