Modifying Mustangs has been around since, well, since April 17, 1964, the day the original pony car first launched. Since then, countless owners of the iconic muscle cars have worked tirelessly to make them stand out in the crowd.
For me, I’ll take a nice race-tuned Cobra in classic white with blue strips. Or, black on black is always a good choice. But then I’ve been known to take more of a utilitarian approach to Mustang mods: If it makes it go faster, improve handling or stop better, it’s good, regardless of appearance.
Sadly, not all Mustang owners share this simple philosophy. Over the years pictures have come forward of highly modified Mustangs that went wrong—way wrong. Below are some of my all-time favorites. Perhaps the most staggering point to consider is that most of these were not built on a whim, but rather through hundreds of hours of painstaking labor backed by thousands, or in some cases, dozens of dollars.
We hope you enjoy, and look forward to your comments regarding these Mustang mishaps…

They say a rolling stone gathers no moss. We’ll let me tell you, three people sitting in a Mustang for more than eight days gather plenty of moss, and other things too. To say that the odor emanating from the new 2009 Ford Mustang is foul, is like saying Megan Fox is easy on the eyes, or that Michael Jackson was a little weird. It just doesn’t cover the dramatic scope of the all-out stench that billows from inside this finely-tuned stink machine.
