As another year goes into the history books, we take a look back at the top news stories the AmericanMuscle blog had to offer. From the 2015 Mustang spy photos to the new 1000+ HP Shelby GT1000, we give you a quick run-down of the best of 2012!
When you put together 1200+ Mustangs, a dozen beautiful AmericanMuscle girls and over 4,000 Mustang fans you are destined for a great time. The 2012 AmericanMuscle Car Show was huge–raising over $15,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and featuring tons of contests, games and dyno pulls, our car show was an event you could bring the family to, as it had something for everyone to enjoy. Check out the highlights of the best from the 2012 American Muscle Car Show and plan for the 2013 AM car show, where we plan to go bigger yet!
What can we say? Our followers love POWER, and this car has loads of it.

Watch the video and see one of these monsters roast a set of drag radials as it whips around the track.

Revealed in this was the possibility of an IRS and a snazzy new steering wheel. If a new IRS is in the works, I guess we are going to have to wait and see if it can fill the shoes left by the very popular solid rear axle the Mustang has been known for.
Every year we bring you a new calendar featuring ridiculous cars and the AmericanMuscle girls. This year was no exception as the AmericanMuscle Calendar included some ridiculous cars like the Iacocca Mustang and smokin’ hot women all packed into one calendar worthy of gracing your wall or cubical for all of 2013. The behind the scenes footage is a sight to be seen…
