On March 15th, 2008, the Black Mustang Club held its annual St. Patrick’s Day Beach Cruise. While American Muscle was freezing its butts off in good old Pennsylvania, the BMC was cruising the California Coasts in sunny bliss!
The events of the day included a scenic cruise around the Palos Verdes Peninsula carefully planned to hug the coast rather than cruising on the freeways with two organized stops for photo opportunities. Not only were the views a pleasure, but the spirited turns and curves of the route gave this cruise more excitement! Following the cruise all guests partook in food, drinks, and a prize raffle at an Irish Pub in Huntington Beach reserved especially for the event’s participants.
American Muscle donated a $100 Gift Certificate for the prize raffle as well as some Free American Muscle Swag. To check out the cruise for yourself, The Black Mustang Club provided these videos for your enjoyment:

AmericanMuscle (www.americanmuscle.com) is helping to sponsor an attempt at the ECTA Land Speed Record for a Production Supercharged vehicle with a Stock Bottom End which is currently at 186.853MPH from a standing mile. Attempting this feat will be the car’s 73 year old owner Robert Self. The attempt will be made April 5-6th, 2008 at the East Coast Timing Association (ECTA) in Maxton, North Carolina. On the ECTA’s 1mile x 30ft abandoned runway track, Robert is looking to hit a cool 200-210MPH in his Ford GT and have room to stop.
A fully custom roll cage, Halon fire extinguishing system, and drag chute have been installed by S&W Racecars. All performance enhancements and custom SCT dynamometer tuning have been performed by Eric Swarr & his team at Swarr Auto Performance Center in Collegeville, Pennsylvania (www.swarrauto.com). In addition to the $15,000 Whipple Industries Supercharger upgrade, Robert has an additional $30,000 over the car’s $170,000 base price invested in performance and safety upgrades. AmericanMuscle.com will be setting Robert up with the proper tire setup for running speeds in excess of 200MPH in a 1000+ horsepower car, and also helping to promote the event.
