Top 9 Coolest Mustang Pics

I spend a lot more time on Flickr than I probably should… Heck, I spend way too much time on the internet, period. That’s more of a personal problem though, and not exactly relevant to this post.

Anyway, I was checking out pictures of muscle cars on Flickr the other day, and I was floored at the sheer number of amazing Mustang photos. I figured I’d share some of my favorites with you here, so here we go – Here are the top 9 coolest Mustang pictures on Flickr.

Red Fastback Mustang

#9

A beautifully composed photo of a red Fastback Mustang on Felixstowe Beach in the UK. The location of this shot and the vibrant colors (specifically the screaming red on the ‘Stang) make this shot’s inclusion on my list a no-brainer. Photo credit: Stevoarnold

Driving Into The Sky

#8

This title of this one is “Driving Into The Sky”, and I’d say it’s a pretty accurate description. The snow on the ground and the clouds in the sky blend together in such a way that it’s difficult to tell where one ends and the other begins, and therein lies the appeal. Photo credit: matze_ott

1969 Hardtop Mustang

#7

A ’69 Hardtop tears through the streets of Bruxelles, Belgium on a dreary day. The dude in the suit probably shouldn’t have been walking so close to the street… I wonder if he learned his lesson? Photo credit: exxodus

Cherry Red 2 Door Mustang Coupe

#6

Another cherry red 2 door Coupe. This one was shot in Durango, Mexico. It looks classy sitting there on the cobblestone, but you know it could tear its way out of there (and through any gardens and fruit stands) if need be. Photo credit: Siddhartha

A Mustang in Paris

#5

There’s something about the lines in this photo. They seem to be leading the eye towards something outside of the photo. The black and white gives the shot an elegant look. This one was taken in Paris. Photo credit: oNico

2007 Ford Shelby GT500

#4

A stunning red 2007 Shelby GT500 Mustang. This is another one where the composition is what makes the photo. Photo credit: Cygnus~X1

1969 Mustang Coupe

#3

A sleek-looking ’69 coupe. The photographer used a technique known as HDR (high dynamic range) to give this photo a very cool (dare I say “epic”?) feel. I love the colors (or lack thereof) in this shot, and once again the sky provides an amazing background. Photo credit: exxodus

Red Mach 1 Mustang

#2

In my mind, whoever owns the red Mach 1 ‘Stang also owns the plane sitting next to it.
“I don’t feel like driving to work today… I think I’ll fly instead.” Photo credit: Arnfinn Hushovd

Dark Blue 1968 Fastback Mustang

#1

A dark blue ’68 Fastback rips through a tunnel in this amazing action shot. Where is he going? It’s not important – He’s doing it in style. Photo credit: Fabio Aro

So there you have it! This is by no means a comprehensive list – There are literally thousands of other Mustang photos on there… See for yourself! Or check out our Customer Rides page, where you can view an extensive collection of customer submitted photos.

FoMoCo To Cut Production of 2010 Mustang!

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.

AmericanMuscle’s Battle Of The Forums Contest Finishes With An Epic Movie!

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:
Weiner Cleaner Soap, Stroke On A Rope, Liquid Ass Spray, Generic Toilet Paper, T-Shirt, Party Blaster, Grass Skirt, Pink Lady Costume, Cyclone Water Gun, Hulk Smash Hands, Chandon Sparking Wine, Light Sabers, Rapid Fire Gatling Water Gun, Hydro Blast Morpher Water Gun, Insult Button, Poo Pen, French Maid Costume, Rolex & Giant Watch, Dominos Gift Card, Marshmallow Blaster, Bag of Marshmallows, Large Bag of Candy, Ricer Piñata, GT500 Model, NASCAR Banner, Secrete Mission Spy Set, Princess Phone, Rubber Ducky, Squirt Camera, Nasal Aspirator, Pregnancy Test, Dog Chew Toy, Duct Tape, Light Saber, Adult Diapers, NOS Drink, Nerf Gun, Hair Dye, Makeup, and an Old Cell Phone

Disclaimer: Stunts were all performed by professionals. Please do not try anything shown in this film at home! This movie is rated WTF, and while its contents really should not be viewed by anyone, parental guidance is suggested.

AM Gives Away Over $2000 In Gifts To Unsuspecting Mustang Owners

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!

“Thanks so much nick and AM, now i dont gota send my car to the shop for the smallest things!” – wells89

“I’m gonna rename all my kids after you: Nick, Nick, and Nickie” – Mr. Ugly

“OH MY GOODNESS!!! just got home from work and checked my email……woohoo!!” – ‘ 65 Dream

“WOW…I never win anything!!! I can’t believe I won…” – 05sbgt
