Over 7000 Horsepower from the Baddest Mustangs on the Street

http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/mustangtuning/swfobject.jshttp://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/mustangtuning/vidThumb.jsLast week, we saw the baddest Mustangs in the country throw down on the King of the Street dyno at Holley HQ in Bowling Green, KY. The results? Over 7000 horsepower measured from these 8-Second cars; and we’ve got video to prove it!

The Night Before King of the Street!

The AmericanMuscle team was in full effect last Wednesday night in downtown Nashville, Tennessee, along with our friends at 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords! It was the night before the highly anticipated King of the Street competition at Beech Bend Park in Bowling Green, KY. What better way to kick off the fun than a night out with the whole crew?

Mike Johnson, Steven Turner, KJ Jones and Greg Clark from the 5.0 Magazine crew were all excited to get a head start on things when we landed. It’s always a pleasure to hang out with our boys from Tampa and LA, and tonight was going to be fun!

The October Ride of the Month Is…

Jeff Burd’s 2008 Roush 428R Mustang!!!

Jeff’s Roush Mustang is one of only 200 made, and Jack Roush himself signed it. The 428R has all the features you expect from a Roush vehicle, and some sweet extras. It features 18X10 Roush wheels and some awesome upgrades from a standard GT. The Roush makes 435 HP and it has an intercooled ROUSHcharger.

When you’re making that much power, you need a suspension that can handle it. The 428R has lowering springs, upgraded swaybars, and upgraded springs and shocks. It’s equipped with Cooper Zeon 2XS tires to help Jeff grip the road when he hits turns, and is rated to pull over 1G of force.

This red Mustang has some serious sex appeal–its Roush custom front fascia, chin spoiler, and hood scoop all give it a tough, powerful look. Being Roush, they didn’t stop with the obvious mods, but added hood pins, a black high-flow grille, and the iconic Roush emblems. With an exterior that looks this good, the inside has to match, so Jeff’s Mustang has leather seats, an upgraded dash, racing pedals, and a retro knob on the short throw shifter. Jeff gave the 428R his own touch by adding a rear window louver and a honeycomb taillight panel.

2010 AmericanMuscle Car Show Overview

As you’ve seen from my previous few posts, the AmericanMuscle car show this year was amazing! There were thousands of people in attendance, over 500 Mustangs, and thousands raised for charity. I hope that everyone agrees that it was a fun and successful day. We couldn’t have done any of this without our loyal customers, so let’s take a look at the final figures:

Vendors & Experts On-Site @ AM 2010 Car Show

If you had a specific Mustang part-related question, I had you covered this past weekend! Nearly 20 of the Mustang aftermarket’s top manufacturers came to help out and answer any questions about the products they offer. With so much knowledge on-site, people were itching to ask about the next big thing on their mods list.

WATCH: Girls of the AmericanMuscle 2010 Car Show

There’s nothing like getting a close view of 500+ of the top Mustangs from around the country. Nothing, that is, except a close view of the AmericanMuscle girls! Not only are these girls smokin’ hot, but they collected thousands of dollars in raffle tickets sales for charity. If you missed them walking around the show (get that checked out!), we’ve got some video footage for you!

Check Out Over 500 Stangs! – AM 2010 Car Show

When Mustangs started pouring into the Kimberton Fairgrounds last weekend, I realized this was not going to be a typical car show! Within a few short hours, we counted over 500 of the sickest Mustangs from all over the country! Some will say it was a mixture of a great cause, hot girls and free food! Others will say it was the perfect weather (I’m not buying it!). Either way, this car show was kicking off the right way…
