Formula 1. NASCAR. IndyCar. World Rally Circuit. These race series represent the pinnacle in motorsports. Budgets are virtually unlimited and competition is fierce as drivers fight their way to the front every second of every race. When it comes to the cars, superior technology is essential, and every team is on the cutting edge. Among the many weapons they share in their drive to Victory Lane is nitrogen in their tires.
Why nitrogen? Simply put, it far exceeds conventional air inflation in performance, durability and long-term savings (the last of which likely means more to you and me than the Pros). Recognizing the inherent benefit of nitrogen-filled tires, AmericanMuscle is now offering this as an option with all mounted wheel and tire orders. Even better, it’s free. That’s right, I said FREE. Many shops offering nitrogen fills today are charging upwards of $10 a tire. Any way you slice it, that ain’t cheap. (more…)
Following a combined donation of more than $9,000 to Homes for Our Troops from AmericanMuscle and its friends and business affiliates, the charity sent the following letter of appreciation. We wanted to pass it on to you since the donation was fueled by funds raised at the AmericanMuscle.com Car Show and Charity Event on July 19, 2009. So thanks also go out to our loyal customers for helping us support this noble cause. Let’s all make sure to do it again next year.
Modifying Mustangs has been around since, well, since April 17, 1964, the day the original pony car first launched. Since then, countless owners of the iconic muscle cars have worked tirelessly to make them stand out in the crowd.
For me, I’ll take a nice race-tuned Cobra in classic white with blue strips. Or, black on black is always a good choice. But then I’ve been known to take more of a utilitarian approach to Mustang mods: If it makes it go faster, improve handling or stop better, it’s good, regardless of appearance.
Sadly, not all Mustang owners share this simple philosophy. Over the years pictures have come forward of highly modified Mustangs that went wrong—way wrong. Below are some of my all-time favorites. Perhaps the most staggering point to consider is that most of these were not built on a whim, but rather through hundreds of hours of painstaking labor backed by thousands, or in some cases, dozens of dollars.
We hope you enjoy, and look forward to your comments regarding these Mustang mishaps…
