We know our readers drive some freakin’ awesome Mustangs. So, every month, we want to help you guys show off your sweet ride.
Why should you enter AM’s ROTM contest, you ask? For the prestige! For the glory! For the Free T-shirt (and the gift card, too)!
Each month, one lucky grand prize winner will be featured in our newsletter and right here on our blog. The winning entry receives a free AmericanMuscle t-shirt, a $50 AM gift card, a certificate suitable for framing, and — clearly most important — thirty days worth of bragging rights . Not a bad deal, huh?
So, what are you waiting for? Here’s the 4-1-1…
- We’ll pick one winner each month out of the completed submissions from the previous month. (example: April’s Ride of the Month winner will be chosen from the entries received during the month of March)
- Each entry must be made on the form below. Any entry submitted through another method will be disqualified.
- Entries must be original and yours.
- All entries must be time stamped before midnight on the 25th of the month.
- We’ll contact the winner via email for your t-shirt size and shipping address.
Give us your best shot. Take a picture of your ‘Stang, fill out the form below telling us why it’s so awesome, and get ready to be the next official AmericanMuscle Ride of the Month! (more…)
As you’ve probably heard, the Northeast has been hit by not one, or even two, but several snow storms over the past few months. Newscasters are throwing around goofy words like ‘snowpocalypse’ and ‘snowmageddon’. There’s been laughter, panic, and a lot of shoveling. There have also been great pictures of Mustangs in the snow. Thus, for this installment of the FotoFix, we give you snowed in ‘Stangs. Since AM is always happy to showcase employees’ vehicles (see our 2010 calendar for proof), we thought we’d share some pics taken by employees this go-round.
If you look closely, you can see this Mustang’s mirror and antenna trying to escape the snow.
Love is a wonderful thang. When you find love in all the right places, it can be a lot of fun, as a pair of Mustang enthusiasts in Florida recently discovered. And their mutual love of Mustangs apparently sealed the deal:
Ford Mustang lovers Vickie Sue Kilpatrick and Ronnie Cox found the perfect way to mix two loves — they got married at the Bozard Ford Lincoln Mercury dealership in St. Augustine.
…At the conclusion of the ceremony the Coxes were introduced as man and wife.
The band kicked in.
The song that launched the marriage: “Mustang Sally”.
Question: What is a Traction-Lok differential and how will it help me?

Answer: This is a great question! A differential upgrade is practically a requirement for anyone looking to tear it up at the strip, so let’s start with some basics: the differential (aka “rear end”, “rear”, or “pumpkin”) is that roundish thing that sits between your rear axles; it’s responsible for transferring power from the driveshaft to the rear wheels and allowing the wheels to spin at different speeds when going around turns. With a job that important it’s easy to see why having a bullet-proof rear is so crucial for serious racers.

Absolutely! No, they’re not a special color to match green Mustangs. But they are environmentally friendly! Most of the weights used to balance wheels these days are made out of lead. As anybody who’s ever hit a pothole knows, those lead weights can fall off your wheels. This means that not only are your wheels unbalanced, but there’s a big ol’ chunk of lead sitting on the street. It doesn’t sound like a big deal, until you realize how many millions of cars are on the road everyday, and how many of those are hitting potholes and losing weights. (more…)
