Modified Mishaps: 10 Mustangs That Went Wrong

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…

The cars at the 1st Annual AmericanMuscle Car Show and Charity Event were not the only things turning heads. Torch Red and Tungsten Grey were accented by shades of blonde, brunette, and even red locks of long flowing hair as the American Muscle Girls made their way through the show. Rachel, Laura, Jamie, Cat, Kelsie and Naomi were definitely popular with the 1,000-plus mustang fans at the July 19th show.

Below are some pics of our ladies showing off their, um… Headlights. Which AM Girl would you most like to polish your bumper?
