As another year goes into the history books, we take a look back at the top news stories the AmericanMuscle blog had to offer. From the 2015 Mustang spy photos to the new 1000+ HP Shelby GT1000, we give you a quick run-down of the best of 2012!
Have you ever wondered what your Mustang would sound like with a Pypes cat-back system? Magnaflow mufflers? Or even Flowmaster? AmericanMuscle is hooking you up with 1080 HD Video & Sound clips of exhaust systems for your 1999-2004 or 2005-2010 Mustang! Look for the “Hear It” icon overlayed:
You’re now able to listen, watch and compare the difference between a stock exhaust system and the performance exhaust system of your choice. No more guessing! This is yet another reason why AmericanMuscle.com is the best source for your cat-back exhaust, headers and other exhaust components.
So tell us… what’s your favorite sounding exhaust system?
It is a sad day in Mustang history. For the first time in 45 years, the Mustang name will not grace the showroom floors of your local dealerships.
Press Release: FOMOCO To Cut Production of 2010 Mustang! (Synopsis)
- Following suit with other major automotive manufacturers, Ford Motor Company announced today that due to the current state of the economy and the decline in Mustang sales throughout the 2009 year, FoMoCo will be cutting production of the 2010 Mustang. This comes as no surprise as other automotive manufacturers dump performance and luxury models to consolidate and concentrate on money saving, earth-friendly “green” vehicles.
When asked for comment, FoMoCo stated that this was no easy decision. While the future of the Mustang name may seem grim, FoMoCo ensured us that it was not gone for good and there are already talks of eventually reviving it with a hybrid refresh of the fuel-sipping 2.3L In-line 4 Cylinder motor.

I end this BLOG post with a moment of silence for an American Icon…
During the month of December 2008, rival forum members sent in objects to AmericanMuscle in an effort to earn the points necessary to bring victory to their forum, that and the fact that pictures of some poor AmericanMuscle Employee using the objects would be posted for their amusement. But, the objects sent in were of such wanton and gratuitous depravity that they could only be properly portrayed in this film.
Thanks for these terrible gifts:

AM Gives Away Over $2000 In Gifts
To Unsuspecting Mustang Owners
AmericanMuscle.com has always been known for running its crazy contests on both its BLOG and also on the forums it sponsors! Their latest “All I Want For Christmas Wish List Contest” on AllFordMustangs.com required forum members to post up two wish lists, one list of what their Mustang wanted for Christmas, and one wish list of what they wanted personally for Christmas, for a chance to win one of three $100 AmericanMuscle Gift Certificates! Pretty sweet, but that is not where the real story is.
Here is where the story gets really good! At the end of the contest, AmericanMuscle’s Forum Representative AMNick picked out nearly 20 items worth over $2000 from people’s personal wish lists, including a Digital Camera, Bowling Ball, a 204 Piece Craftsman Tool Kit, a Nintendo Wii, toys for a member’s 3 year old daughter, and even some retro 80’s tube socks, and actually sent them the items on their lists, all on the company dime!
When asked if he was afraid of getting fired for what seemed like an incredible act of lunacy, AMNick responded, “Absolutely not! I had the full support of AmericanMuscle behind me on this one! The thing about AmericanMuscle is we can fully relate to our customers because we are real Mustang people too. With the currently devastated economy, we just thought this would be a great way to help out our fellow Mustang enthusiasts in these financially difficult times.”
Needless to say there were some very surprised, and very happy people on AllFordMustangs.com that day!
