AmericanMuscle.com I Can Draw Mustang Contest
Winner Of The Cervinis Lil-C500 Announced!
Well folks, this had to be the hardest contest to judge yet. Ever wonder how many AmericanMuscle employees it takes to judge an I Can Draw Mustang Contest? That answer is about 10! I mean, with a prize like the Cervinis Lil-C500 on the line, we made sure to take everything into consideration.
So, we decided to employ proper judging technique by placing the finalist drawings into their natural environment. Once hanging proudly from our break room ‘fridge we could truly comprehend the depth and feel of each piece of art.
We also took into account the age of each artist when judging, and assigned each artwork points accordingly. While judging we found out that there are some real talented young artists out there. It is unfortunate that we could pick but only one winner. But a winner we did pick…so…on to what everyone has been waiting for…the winner!

We would like to thank everyone that entered the contest, there are some truly talented young artists out there, and you made it very difficult for us to pick just one winner! If you did not win the contest, don’t be discouraged. Keep on drawing! As we will be having plenty more AmericanMuscle.com contests where this came from!

I spend a lot more time on Flickr than I probably should… Heck, I spend way too much time on the internet, period. That’s more of a personal problem though, and not exactly relevant to this post.
Anyway, I was checking out pictures of muscle cars on Flickr the other day, and I was floored at the sheer number of amazing Mustang photos. I figured I’d share some of my favorites with you here, so here we go – Here are the top 9 coolest Mustang pictures on Flickr.
A beautifully composed photo of a red Fastback Mustang on Felixstowe Beach in the UK. The location of this shot and the vibrant colors (specifically the screaming red on the ‘Stang) make this shot’s inclusion on my list a no-brainer. Photo credit: Stevoarnold
This title of this one is “Driving Into The Sky”, and I’d say it’s a pretty accurate description. The snow on the ground and the clouds in the sky blend together in such a way that it’s difficult to tell where one ends and the other begins, and therein lies the appeal. Photo credit: matze_ott
A ’69 Hardtop tears through the streets of Bruxelles, Belgium on a dreary day. The dude in the suit probably shouldn’t have been walking so close to the street… I wonder if he learned his lesson? Photo credit: exxodus
Another cherry red 2 door Coupe. This one was shot in Durango, Mexico. It looks classy sitting there on the cobblestone, but you know it could tear its way out of there (and through any gardens and fruit stands) if need be. Photo credit: Siddhartha
There’s something about the lines in this photo. They seem to be leading the eye towards something outside of the photo. The black and white gives the shot an elegant look. This one was taken in Paris. Photo credit: oNico
A stunning red 2007 Shelby GT500 Mustang. This is another one where the composition is what makes the photo. Photo credit: Cygnus~X1
A sleek-looking ’69 coupe. The photographer used a technique known as HDR (high dynamic range) to give this photo a very cool (dare I say “epic”?) feel. I love the colors (or lack thereof) in this shot, and once again the sky provides an amazing background. Photo credit: exxodus
In my mind, whoever owns the red Mach 1 ‘Stang also owns the plane sitting next to it. “I don’t feel like driving to work today… I think I’ll fly instead.”

A dark blue ’68 Fastback rips through a tunnel in this amazing action shot. Where is he going? It’s not important – He’s doing it in style. Photo credit: Fabio Aro
So there you have it! This is by no means a comprehensive list – There are literally thousands of other Mustang photos on there… See for yourself! Or check out our Customer Rides page, where you can view an extensive collection of customer submitted photos.
It is a sad day in Mustang history. For the first time in 45 years, the Mustang name will not grace the showroom floors of your local dealerships.
Press Release: FOMOCO To Cut Production of 2010 Mustang! (Synopsis)
- Following suit with other major automotive manufacturers, Ford Motor Company announced today that due to the current state of the economy and the decline in Mustang sales throughout the 2009 year, FoMoCo will be cutting production of the 2010 Mustang. This comes as no surprise as other automotive manufacturers dump performance and luxury models to consolidate and concentrate on money saving, earth-friendly “green” vehicles.
When asked for comment, FoMoCo stated that this was no easy decision. While the future of the Mustang name may seem grim, FoMoCo ensured us that it was not gone for good and there are already talks of eventually reviving it with a hybrid refresh of the fuel-sipping 2.3L In-line 4 Cylinder motor.
