AM Dirt Don’t Hurt Contest Winners Announced – Over $400 In Prizes!

AmericanMuscle.com Dirt Don’t Hurt Contest – Over $400 In Prizes!
The Winners Have Been Announced!

The AmericanMuscle.com Dirt Don’t Hurt Contest is finally over and it is time to announce the winners! With over 70 entries to this contest, this was no easy task.

We had some really good entries and some hilarious beater cars to boot! With this being a Mustang site, I decided to give the top three prizes to three daring souls that actually brave the winter weather forces in their precious Mustangs. But in keeping with the spirit of the contest, I have selected two high quality beater cars as runner ups and each shall be receiving an American Muscle T-Shirt!

With that said, we can now get on to the good part…the winners:

  • 1st Prize – Justin T. of Chandler, AZ:
       
    Justin’s Mustang has clearly seen some wintry action. Check out the pictures of his snow laden Mustang. Pictures of his Mustang in action hitting the slushy salty roads on a recent trek up North helped Justin make out with 1st place!

    • 1st Place Prizes:
      • $100 American Muscle Gift Certificate
      • $75 Mothers Car Care Kit:
        • Mothers Car Wash & Wax Kit
        • Mothers Wheel & Tire Cleaning Kit
      • American Muscle T-Shirt
  • 2nd Prize – Greg M. of Leesburg, OH:
       
    Greg’s Mustang really took one for the team in a recent snow storm in Ohio. Take a good look at what is left of his passenger-side side view mirror! It may not pass inspection now, but it sure as heck got him home in one piece!

    • 2nd Place Prizes:
      • $50 American Muscle Gift Certificate
      • $75 Mothers Car Care Kit:
        • Mothers Car Wash & Wax Kit
        • Mothers Wheel & Tire Cleaning Kit
      • American Muscle T-Shirt
  • 3rd Prize – Nicole P. of Yardville, NJ:

    The paint on Nicole’s 2005+ GT was recently ravaged on the salty roads on a ski trip to the Poconos Mountains. Nicole may be sad that ski season is over, but I am sure her Mustang is ready to be washed and cruise through the road-salt-free summer months!

    • 3rd Place Prizes:
      • $25 American Muscle Gift Certificate
      • $75 Mothers Car Care Kit:
        • Mothers Car Wash & Wax Kit
        • Mothers Wheel & Tire Cleaning Kit
      • American Muscle T-Shirt
  • 1st Runner Up – Matt J. of Racine, WI:
     
    One look at Matt’s daily winter driver and you will see that Matt is a firm believer in having more rust then paint on his car! Matt’s 1987 Dodge Ramcharger may have seen better days, but it is pushing 280k+ miles and still running strong…er well maybe not strong but it is still running!

    • 1st Runner Up Prize:
      • American Muscle T-Shirt
  • 2nd Runner Up – Norman T. of Paragon, IN:
     
    Not everyone’s beater needs to be beat! Just take a look at Norman’s fully customized “General Flea”! Norman tricked out this General Lee tribute with some sick custom paint and eye popping graphics. I don’t know about you, but I am super serially jealous!

    • 2nd Runner Up Prize:
      • American Muscle T-Shirt

So I was driving to work the other day when I started to day dream about bacon. It’s delicious! And it’s a universal topping that instantly transforms practically any meal into a gourmet delicacy worthy of the people’s pickiest pallets. From the breakfast table, to hoagies, to meatloaf, to salad, to ice cream, to heck…even dog’s have Beggin Strips! That’s when it hit me! I thought…why not pay homage to this grand American institution by having an American Muscle Bacon…err Begging contest!

So what exactly is a Begging Contest? That’s easy…it is exactly what it sounds like. I list a prize. You beg for it. The best beggar wins! Can it be that simple? Well, the competition is probably going to be pretty fierce on this one, so you better get real creative! I want to hear sob stories, crazy wacky stories, lists of herculean feats you have performed in the name of American Muscle, etc. etc. etc.! They can be true stories, or they can be fully loaded fictitious fallacies, but they must all include why I should pick you of all people to be the chosen one to win a prize! The top three entries will be featured on our site and they will receive super sweet prizes!

Now on to the really good part…the prizes:

  • 1st Prize:

    • $150 American Muscle Gift Certificate

    • American Muscle Swag Pack
  • 2nd Prize:
    • $100 American Muscle Gift Certificate

    • American Muscle Swag Pack
  • 3rd Prize:
    • $50 American Muscle Gift Certificate

    • American Muscle Swag Pack

(American Muscle Swag Pack Includes: T-Shirt, Sweatshirt, Calendar, and Decals for your car!)


Still unclear about what you are supposed to do? Check out this example of what I would say is a top-notch entry for this contest:

Example: “One day in 3rd grade I was sucker punched in the back of the head and knocked out cold in the parking lot. When I came to, the first car I saw was a Mustang GT and ever since then I have been obsessed with Mustangs! Now I own 5 Mustangs and outfit all of them solely at American Muscle. Now I am facing an extremely difficult decision on whether to buy my wife an anniversary present or get new springs for my newest Mustang. Please please please let me win a prize so I can use that gift certificate to help pay for new control arms to go along with those springs! And/or get my wife something for her anniversary…if I really have to.”
