AM My Hooptie Contest – Winners Announced!

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

The AmericanMuscle.com 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”
    • 3rd Place Prizes:
      • $50 American Muscle Gift Certificate
      • American Muscle T-Shirt
      • American Muscle Quarter Window Decals

AmericanMuscle.com Pimp Brick’s Ride Contest – $300 In Pimpage For Your Ride!
The Winner Has Been Announced!

AmericanMuscle’s Pimp Brick’s Ride Contest received over 60 entries and let me tell you, Brick was truly impressed. You went all out and did not make this an easy decision for him. In fact, we had to create a 2nd place position just to help him pick a 1st place winner. In the end though, one entry stood out among all entries with just the sheer amount of time and effort put into it.

And now on to the winners:

  • 1st Prize – Angelo S. of Chantilly VA:
    Angelo took our contest several steps further then the rest by creating an entire website dedicated to Pimping Brick’s Ride which he dubbed “The Brickstang“. The sheer amount of time and effort with an outstanding attention to detail that went into the website is what really closed the deal for him on this one.Click to check out the Brickstang website!

    • 1st Place Prizes:
      • $300 AmericanMuscle Gift Certificate
      • American Muscle T-Shirt

     

  • 2nd Prize – Ricardo O. of Apple Valley, CA:
    While we officially didn’t have a 2nd place category, we had to create one for this entry. Ricardo did all of his work freehand, and even sent the Brick the drawing to frame and hang on his desk. Check out Ricardo’s truly impressive artistry below:
    • 2nd Place Prizes:
      • AmericanMuscle T-Shirt
      • AmericanMuscle Hoodie
      • AmericanMuscle Quarter Window Stickers

  • 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.”

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…”

  • 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.”
