$2,126.33 Given to Homes For Our Troops Charity

AmericanMuscle was proud to host a charity event on Saturday, July 21st 2007 to raise money for Homes For Our Troops.

With the help of our customers and all of our dedicated staff we were able to raise $2,126.33 for Homes For Our Troops.


Homes For Our Troops is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to helping those people that give selflessly to their country and have returned home with serious disabilities and injuries. This organization is committed to assisting severely injured Servicemen and Women, and their immediate families, by raising donations of money, building materials, and professional labor to build a new home or adapt an existing home for handicapped accessibility.

Besides raising more than $2,100 for Homes for our Troops, we also had a lot of Fun and Food for our employees and their families.

The party started with a Delicious Pig Roast and enough hamburgers and hot dogs to feed a small army. For the employees and friends who were looking to settle their personal grudges, we had Sumo wrestling and Jousting. A number of employees took advantage of the jousting to challenge Steve, one of the owners of the company. Steve took on all challengers, with only one defeat.


American Muscle also raffled off a number of prizes in order to raise money for Homes for our Troops. There was a brand new iPhone, a case of Duff energy drink, a case of Cocaine energy drink, and a pair of Phillies tickets.

If that wasn’t enough, we had a Hot Dog Eating Contest. Using the Nathans Hot Dog eating contest rules we had 11 competitors, for a total of 54 hot dogs eaten! Eric Brooks took the gold, swallowing a hefty 12 veggie hot dogs and winning a brand new Char-Broil Grill.


We want to thank everyone who participated! It was a great event, benefiting a great Charity!

AmericanMuscle.com: Proud Sponsor of Mustang Week 2007!

AmericanMuscle.com is proud to announce that we have been added as a sponsor for the 5th Annual Mustang Week, the Largest Mustang and SVT gathering on the East Coast! This is our second year sponsoring the event and, just like last year, we have provided a set of wheels to be given away to one lucky ‘Stang owner during Mustang Week!

This year, we have sent a set of FOUR (4) 18×9 Anthracite FR500 wheels, worth more than $600!

But, just in case you need more incentive to go to Myrtle Beach and show off your car, though, here is some information about the event!

In 2002, Mustang Week began as a small cruise-in with roughly 150 ‘Stangs showing up to show off at Broadway at the Beach and The Hard Rock Café in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

By 2006, Mustang Week had grown into a 5-day festival packed with events that drew more than 700 Mustangs and SVT vehicles, along with thousands of spectators! Mustang Week is now one of the PREMIER Mustang events.

In 2007, the staff and crew of Mustang Week has 5 days of events planned.

  • Tuesday, July 24th is a Meet-N-Greet at Planet Hollywood from 4:30-8:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, July 25th, the Mustang Week crew has planned Fun Runs and a Burn-Out Contest at the Myrtle Beach Speedway for all participants.
  • Thursday, July 26th is Drag Night! Participants will meet at Hooters and cruise to Darlington Drag Strip.
  • Friday is the 4th Annual Car Show at Colonial Mall, with the Mustang Week crew and judges presenting the Top 75 trophies and a whole lot of “Best of” Awards!

Mustang Week wraps up on Saturday, July 28th, with the Southeast’s largest Mustang and SVT Cruise-In at Colonial Mall!

Join the Mustang Week crew in Myrtle Beach, S.C. from July 23rdto July 29th, 2007 for the East Coast’s Largest Mustang and SVT gathering!

AmericanMuscle Rep Races Past the Competition!

Spring is here and enthusiasts everywhere are bringing their ‘Stangs out of hibernation for racing season! One of AmericanMuscle.com’s own customer service representatives — Brick Spurio — is no exception!

A Mustang Enthusiast since before he could legally drive, Brick started racing the day after he got his license. According to him, he had a, “‘66 Mustang Coupe 289 three-speed. I thought it was the fastest thing ever. I went racing, got my doors blown in and got bit by the speed bug.”

He’s been obsessed with making things go faster since then, and when racing season starts, Brick starts itching to get on the track. The owner of two Mustangs — an ‘87 GT, an ‘03 Mach 1, and always looking for more — Brick’s most recent quest for speed brought him to Reynolds, GA, home of the Silver Dollar Raceway and site of the 7th Annual Bassani Xhaust NMRA Ford Nationals.

Though he wasn’t the driver in Georgia, Brick and his crew raced a 1990 Mustang LX Convertible, 7-UP Special Edition, which is show below.

Driven by Chris Van Gilder, they won the first round against Bob Cook, only to lose by the slimmest of margins to Mike Roush in the second round. The official times are not available yet, but as soon as we have them, they’ll be posted!

Brick and his crew will be in Milan, MI next for the 4th Annual Toyo Tires NMRA Ford Nationals! Look for the guy in the AmericanMuscle.com gear and be sure to say hi!
