The SEMA Show is like no other car show on the planet. Though supposedly just for those working in the industry, enthusiasts have little challenge landing credentials to the four-day Vegas event. For 2009, the show resurfaced from a gloomy 2008 with a slew of Mustangs front and center as the leader for hot new products and crazy high-budget customs.
This year I joined the team from AmericanMuscle.com to head west to Sin City for a look at the latest Mustang mods to hit the market. From matte black super stealths, to ready to race and in-your-face road masters, clearly Mustangs are the perfect choice to make virtually any show, street, or track performer.
Here are just a few of our favorites:
The Mustang Corral was invite only, and very impressive.
One of only 10 produced, this 2010 by Vaughn Gittin Jr. Motorsports has a body made completely from carbon fiber.
Built by California Ford Dealer Galpin Auto Sports, this supercharged wide body pumps out 550 horses.
Invited as one of the many “Friends of Ford”, this street performer drew plenty of attention from Mustang fans in the Ford corral.
Loyal AmericanMuscle customer and friend, Michael O’Donnell was flying our colors on his DG 1005 race ready Bullitt.
Later Gator… Beautiful, but just plain weird, this ‘Stang might as well be in the Everglades with its solid commitment to its one-of-a-kind alligator theme.
Every Pony in the Ford Corral had me rethinking my stance on grand theft auto, except this one.
Ford Racing Mustang Challenge car. Need I say more?
ARC Audio took this Shelby Super Snake up yet another notch.
The Ford display was busy the entire week. This custom airbrushed Mustang hood was handed over to one lucky winner at the end of the week.
Okay, I know it’s not a Mustang. But dude, really? I’d think his show of support for our troops could have been effective if he had just donated his extra cash, instead of investing in red, white and blue glitter his tires.
