Project MMD Winner Zachary Villareal Takes Home MMD Mustang

The 2014 AmericanMuscle Car Show brought thousands of Mustangs and people to Maple Grove Raceway, one of them being the lucky winner of Project MMD. Project MMD was built-up over the course of a few months and was unveiled at SEMA as our show car. After SEMA, we decided to give Project MMD away to one lucky winner. After running the registration for the contest for months, and receiving thousands of entries, we randomly selected one winner to take home Project MMD; Zachary Villareal.

19 year old Zachary Villareal is from the town of Alice, Texas, where he is no stranger to the Mustang legacy. Zachary has always owned Mustang’s since he could drive and he is now currently on his third Mustang. Zachary got a 2014 Oxford White V6 in the beginning of his senior year that he worked and saved to modify, customizing his Mustang to be his own. He found out about the giveaway when he was shopping on americanmuscle.com for parts for 2014 V6 Mustang. His father Hector said, “but he [Zachary] still had his eye on one of the new 5.0L Mustangs.” Little did he know that entering in the Project MMD giveaway would land him the 5.0L of his dreams.

AmericanMuscle reached out to Zachary and offered to bring him up for the AmericanMuscle Car Show, keeping the fact he had been selected to win Project MMD a mystery until the day of the car show. This year’s AmericanMuscle Car Show was the largest to date, bringing in 2,600 Mustangs, 10,000+ spectators, and $35, 503 for the Special Olympics Charity. One of the main talking points of the show was the Project MMD giveaway.

Hot rodding legend Chip Foose announced the winner of Project MMD to the crowd at the show. When Zachary’s name was called, you could see him be taken back. “I can’t believe it. I just can’t believe it,” Zachary said over and over again, in a post announcement daze. He shook hands with Chip Foose and received keys to his new Mustang and took a seat in the car.

As the crowd of fellow Mustang enthusiast’s cheered on, the look of pure bliss became more and more present on Zachary’s face as it started to set in that he was going home with a 2014 Mustang GT that had been modified by AmericanMuscle. After things started to calm down, Chip Foose told the crowd that he was going to be working on the next Project MMD car, Project MMD by Foose, that will be given away at next year’s AmericanMuscle Car Show. Zachary could not be more ecstatic to return to Alice, Texas with his 2014 Mustang, adding another Pony to the stable.

      After meeting him, I know the car is in the hands of someone who will truly enjoy it. Zach is a die-hard enthusiast who has worked hard to be able to afford
      his cars. Like us, other fellow enthusiasts, he puts his ride high on
      his priority list and spends the money he saves on his Mustang and parts.

    At 19 years old and owning 3 purchased Mustangs shows his high level of dedication and love for this breed. Contrats to Zach! WOW! Four, count them, FOUR MUSTANGS IN HIS STABLE! Very cool. Very cool indeed!

    No it doesn’t show dedication. It shows that he’s a spoiled little princess boy that gets everything he wants. It doesn’t even matter if he’s well off, as a human being it is next to impossible to honestly believe you have earned a car as nice as project MMD, but to have a brand new 2014 out of high school, complete Bullshit! For those of us that have actually had to work our asses off for everything we have and we still get shit on by the world this is just another nail in the coffin. Until you’ve had to grovel at the feet of others just to support your family, worked 7 days a week 11 hours a day for months on end and then come home to work more hours to finally lay down and sleep four hours a night at best with no relaxation, effectively shortening your life to the point that you’ll likely die of exhaustion the day before you actually get to retire, you don’t deserve such great circumstances. That or do some act of extreme valor like saving lives. Zachary you most certainly haven’t earned what you have and you should feel bad that the car didn’t go to someone more deserving. Personally this is my first day off in months after working the extreme schedule mentioned above and i still don’t believe that i would have earned that car. I’ve lived in poverty and relentlessly attacked the restrictions that held me there until i worked my way up to lower middle class, at best, and i have friends and family galore that have done the same and would feel the same about this. Next time maybe ask a few questions of your entries and figure out who they are before you go and choose some “random” prick from papers out of a hat, dumbasses. This may have been a waste of my day off but somebody needs to throw a reality wrench into this miasma of delusion and twisted gears that churns out such swill for commentary. This world is fucked if it continues on like this.

      Wow ^ dude… Yeah you sure waisted your time writing this.. Sounds like your jelious of what you wish you had, you prob entered into win the car 10 times or so and just pissed cause the odds were out of your favor.. It’s a shame that a shithead like you has to talk smack and down on somone that you do not even know..this shows how much of an asshole you are and that you have nothing but SHIT that comes out of that stupid ass trap of yours.. Go cry in the mirror jerk off and talk shit on your self, as they say.. ” you don’t have anything nice to say, then shut the f:ck up” you hear that??? It’s a faint sound of somone wining cause they didn’t get what they wanted.. Your an idiot.. As for Zach.. Good for you my friend.. Glad you could win it.. And hope you enjoy it.. After all YOU won it.. Take care..
