Homes For Our Troops

$4230.36 Donated To Homes For Our Troops At AmericanMuscle’s Annual Charity Picnic

On Saturday July 12th, 2008, AmericanMuscle held its annual company picnic and charity fund raiser. Once again, this year’s charity foundation was Homes For Our Troops which 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 those who have returned from their service to our country severely injured, 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.

The Breakdown:

  • Sales Donation (% Of Sales During The Event) – $3615.36
  • Additional Company Donation – $500.00
  • Phone Donations – $ 115.00
  • Grand Total – $ 4230.36

In addition to our annual charity fundraiser, this event was also our annual company picnic! A variety of fun activities, massive food consumption of previously unthinkable proportions, and shenanigans pursued including “American Gladiator” style jousting, expert mechanical bull riding, dunk tank dunking of bosses, horseshoeing, a limbo contest how low can you go?, and of course the crème de la crème of picnic activities…the office employee versus warehouse employee TUG OF WAR!

So check out the pictures of the AmericanMuscle crew cutting loose below, and keep an eye out for next year’s fundraiser picnic!

AM Pimp Brick’s Ride Contest Winner Announced! – $300 In Pimpage For Your Ride!

AmericanMuscle.com Pimp Brick’s Ride Contest – $300 In Pimpage For Your Ride!
The Winner Has Been Announced!

AmericanMuscle’s Pimp Brick’s Ride Contest received over 60 entries and let me tell you, Brick was truly impressed. You went all out and did not make this an easy decision for him. In fact, we had to create a 2nd place position just to help him pick a 1st place winner. In the end though, one entry stood out among all entries with just the sheer amount of time and effort put into it.

And now on to the winners:

  • 1st Prize – Angelo S. of Chantilly VA:
    Angelo took our contest several steps further then the rest by creating an entire website dedicated to Pimping Brick’s Ride which he dubbed “The Brickstang“. The sheer amount of time and effort with an outstanding attention to detail that went into the website is what really closed the deal for him on this one.

    • 1st Place Prizes:

      • $300 AmericanMuscle Gift Certificate

      • American Muscle T-Shirt

  • 2nd Prize – Ricardo O. of Apple Valley, CA:
    While we officially didn’t have a 2nd place category, we had to create one for this entry. Ricardo did all of his work freehand, and even sent the Brick the drawing to frame and hang on his desk. Check out Ricardo’s truly impressive artistry below:

    • 2nd Place Prizes:

      • AmericanMuscle T-Shirt

      • AmericanMuscle Hoodie
      • AmericanMuscle Quarter Window Stickers

Over the Memorial Day weekend, one of our Customer Service Representatives, Brick, awoke to find his daily driver had been “Hit and Runned” and was completely totaled! In need of a new daily driver, and suffering from an insatiable penchant for Mustangs, Brick picked up a 1994 V6 Mustang. The only problem is it’s BONE STOCK!!!

Now for Brick that is completely unacceptable, having several other “not quite street legal” Mustangs in his garage including a Supercharged MACH1 and a Foxbody Renegade Car. So the only reasonable thing to do would be to run a contest where you Pimp Brick’s Ride! Basically we want to know what you would do to the car from start to finish, and if you have the PhotoShop skills, visual aids are always encouraged!!!

You’re going to have to get creative on this one folks! So bust out your pencils, thinking caps, and PhotoShop skills, and get to work! Entries will be judged on creativity and on how well the parts you used complete the “Total Package” of Brick’s new ride! Bonus points for entries that utilize copious parts that are available at American Muscle and for creative PhotoShop work on his car.

To submit your entry, send your entry to: contests@americanmuscle.com. The entry that most appeases Bricks wanton and gratuitous appetite for Mustang modification will be featured on our site and they will also receive a Gift Certificate to AmericanMuscle.com worth $300 in pimpage to their Mustang! Brick will also be giving out T-Shirts to any runner up that he deems worthy!

Corral Day 2008 & “Pinks Style” Charity Race!

Corral.net is holding their annual Corral Day 2008 at Beechbend Raceway in Bowling Green, KY this weekend on Saturday June the 7th!

During the event, a “Pinks” style grudge race will be held between two teams from Kentucky and Mississippi. Lose the race…lose the ride! Except there is a twist on this one, the loser’s car will be auctioned off on eBay and the proceeds will be donated to help offset the cost of one of Corral.net’s very own member’s kidney transplants.

American Muscle is helping to sponsor the Mississippi Team’s car and hooked them up with a set of Moser 31 Spline Forged Racing Axles. Check out the full build details on the Mississippi car at the Corral Forums here!
