Note: Starting this month, you can check out all our awesome Ride of the Month winners in one post!
Grand Prize Winner: Marty Brown’s yellow 2005 GT. Here are the details of Marty’s awesome ‘Stang.
Wheel style & size: Deep-dish Bullitt 18X10’s
Other Mods: Whipple 500 hp supercharger, courtesy of Cobra Motor Sports, KR500 exhaust system, Willwood rotors & 6 piston caliper brakes.
Marty’s Comments: “I started with what seemed to be a rather plain looking Mustang GT that I purchased from a Corvette dealer in Edmonton. The car only had 2,300km on it and to this day it still has under 5,000km. The transformation began approximately 3 years ago with custom-painted Eleanor racing strips, as vinyl did not cut it for me. The rear, side, and rear window louvers followed next and added a cool look. The 350hp stock engine with a cold air intake grew to be insufficient for me and had no choice but to go play with the big boys. I have yet to have the car dyno’d, but have been advised that I have at least 500hp at the flywheel and approximately 450 rear wheel. I have yet to install the smaller pulley for my supercharger, that should take the hp up to 550. The finishing touch to the extreme power I now have was the deep-dish Bullitt rims & tires that get so much attention at Mustang rallies. The only thing I was lacking in the end was brakes. Willwood 6 piston calipers and rotors were installed by Cobra Motor Sports to help me stop a little more efficiently. I hope you like my ride, as it sincerely turns heads every time I am out driving in sunny Alberta, Canada.(more…)

You can enter multiple pictures, but please do not submit the same entry more than once. Winners will be announced on the blog on June 4thJune 7th (to give us time to take a look at the last-minute entries).

In an attempt to bring you, our valued customer and friends, a look at some of our best Mustang stuff before the holidays, I rallied our video guy and headed out to our warehouse, Santa suit and all. I can definitely say it didn’t go as planned. In fact, it went from good, to bad, to worse, in no time flat. Nonetheless, here’s a look at the start of our first-ever 12 Days of Giftmas Video Gift Guide.
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.
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.
