Mustang vs. Tornado: Did it Drive Away?


You mean, THAT thing runs? I didn’t realize Built Ford Tough included Tornado Tough, too! This guy was captured driving his SN95 Ford Mustang convertible out of the tornado rubble, after some super-storms swept through the South taking entire neighborhoods off of the map in Alabama and neighboring states. He obviously wasn’t gonna let a storm get the best of his Stang!

While a photojournalist was out surveying the damage, he caught this guy amazingly driving his car out of the tornado debris. Even a severe storm couldn’t put this pony out of its misery! Just sayin’…

Would you save your Mustang before the family photos? Tell us below!

  1.  Really? I would not think American Muscle would call out someone’s Mustang as not being  up to par. This was a proud Mustang owner and even though the wheels would not have been my choice, it was still the owners choice to take pride in his car by adding wheels and sounded like exhaust. Why would you call him out? Is all you care about getting your customers money, telling them they have good looking car and then laugh behind their backs? Put his Pony out of it’s misery? Shame…..


    1. Rebuild? Theres no Rebuilding that. You are looking at 15-20k in body work.

      This is when you cash that nice insurance check and buy a new one. 


    2. yea, they could just go ahead and buy him a new one for what it would cost to rebuild…CRAIGSLIST!!!!! 


  2. Actually..i did save my Mustang after a nasty accident that totaled her at over $6000 in damage.  I’m slowly getting parts piece by piece.  And she still runs..  minor mechanical like the radiator in CAI…mostly body subframe like the radiator support I just got from AM this week.


  3.  man talk about patina~~~ I hope they get taken care of.  what a tough situation.  As for what I’d save first, it’s tough because I don’t want to miss a thing… 


  4. mi first car is my mustang i have definitely i will save it first than my family photos but first my family then my car


  5. EAT THAT CHEVY!!!! but seriously, that car is toast, but it would be a good excuse as to why he just had to buy a new 5.0


  6. y would u waste the  money on rebuilding that thing 04 body style sucks ass in looks n performance a new v6 could beat a mach one cobra even a 05 v6 with 500 bucks into it could beat it plus like other shogun said it be building from the old frame if it isnt twisted and the rest from suspension to body panels to the interior and major drivetrain work 
    built ford tough is right though
