2011 Mustang Commercial Debuts

Ford is understandably determined to showcase their 2011 V6 Mustang as much as possible. As our friend Jonathan over at mustangs.about.com mentioned in a post, the first 2011 Mustang commercials debuted recently. In his words:

“The spot focuses on Ford’s new V6 Mustang screaming through urban streets in true muscle car fashion. No doubt, it’s pretty awesome to say the least. The big message? “31 MPG and 305 Horsepower.” Not bad, not bad at all”

Not bad, indeed. There has been a fierce rivalry between GT and V6 owners for years, and this much-anticipated Mustang will certainly help even the score. Watch it now!

Top 10 Mustang Movie Moments

Most of the folks here at AmericanMuscle love Mustangs. Okay, that’s probably being pretty mild. Most of the folks here at AmericanMuscle are obsessed with Mustangs. Not only can (and will) AM staffers talk pony tech with you all day, they can go on and on (and on) about Mustangs in pop culture, especially movies.

Since its initial release, the Mustang has been featured in thousands of movies. Like any big Hollywood name, the Mustang has had its share of bit parts. The original pony car has also won its share of starring roles, though, and those are what we discuss most. After some debate, we’ve put together a list of Top Ten Mustang Movie Moments. You’ll notice a lot of them are chase scenes, because Mustangs are at their best when they’re demonstrating their speed and handling capabilities.

Number 10. Love it or hate it, the highly modified Mustang (aka Frankenstein’s Monster) in Death Race handles its business in its final race. movie info

Number 9. When you’re the last person left in New York City who hasn’t mutated into a nightmarish creature, what do you do for food and transportation? For Will Smith in I am Legend, the choice is simple. You hunt deer in a GT500. movie info (more…)

Shane Peltz’s silver V6 Mustang is sleek and stylish. As Shane says, “My father bought me my 2006 Mustang V6 thinking we could make a real head turner. With my father’s love for cars and my sense of style we knew we could do it. We started this monster project by putting on a chin spoiler. From there, we decided to dress up the hood by putting on a carbon hood scoop and two black hood pins. From the hood to the engine compartment, we have Red Line chrome hood struts. To brace the the car around turns, we put a Steeda strut tower brace on… We designed our own custom Kat-skin interior. Also we installed triple pod racing gauges and rear window side louvers. Rear racing diffuser and custom striping round out our project. Thank you for all your help AmericanMuscle.” (more…)

And, the May Ride of the Month Winner is…

Angela Leggett’s 2003 Dark Shadow V6 Mustang. Here are the details of Angela’s awesome ride.

Year: 2003

Model: V6 Mustang Coupe

Color: Dark Shadow

Wheel style & size: Cobra R 17X9

Comments: “I have no trophies and consider this Mustang a work in progress. I have just added the Eibach pro-line springs, struts, and shocks and it rides, drives, looks, and handles 100% better, best mod I could have done. I’m working on many more things as the money comes. I call this Mustang the Dark Horse because it is an under dog being a V6 and my hopes are to change that soon with a super charger and some power upgrades.”
