Rockin’ SEMA 2009 with the Vaughn Gittin Jr Ford Mustang RTR

Vaughn Gitten 2010 Mustang RTR

Vaughn Gittin Jr 2010 Mustang RTR

Last week, we told you about the waterfall of Ford Mustangs to come from the 2009 SEMA show in Las Vegas.  Well, this week, the river has started to rise with the details on the Ford Mustang RTR (Ready to Rock) floating out in plain sight.  Set up with the trending and talented World Champion Drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr, this new 2010 Mustang specialty car is the result of a combined effort between designer Caleb Clark & Classic Design Concepts.  This slick-styled Mustang RTR has received some seriously cool design cues.  One particular point of interest was the rear diffuser update–definitely a nice touch!  The black matte hue helps to offset some of the hue balancing issues many have made note of on the 2010 Mustang.  Various Ford dealerships are going to carry this SEMA special in February 2010 and it will be equipped with a few tasteful upgrades to keep enthusiasts excited: a K&N high-flow airbox, Falken (of course) tires, a Ford Racing damper kit & springs, a Baer braking system, and a tuned exhaust setup.  In addition to the “go goodies”, the Mustang RTR has a few additional touches to the exterior worth noting as well.  An exclusive RTR rear diffuser, front splitter, aluminum rear spoiler, RTR emblems and vinyl all give this pony car a unique racing drifter’s touch.

SEMA 2009 – Classic Design Concepts Ford Mustang coupe

CDC_2010_Ford_Mustang_coupe

Most of the time, a Ford Mustang fan is inclined to zone in on one particular paradigm: “go” or “show”.  As a result, many modified Mustangs reach a point to where they are so tweaked and/or pampered, they are relegated to weekend warrior cruising or track-only duty.  So where’s the dualism here?  Why can’t a Mustang fan have the cake and eat it too?

This year at SEMA 2009, Classic Design Concepts (CDC) will take the best of both worlds and mold them into one awesomely capable pony car package.  The main premise of this latest CDC project is twofold: create a concept suited for the racing lifestyle enthusiast with simple tools and track day needs contained right inside the car AND keep the car’s performance & suspension upgrades in check to be aggressive, but not overbearing for comfortable everyday driving.

Keep reading to get the list of modifications on this 2010 CDC Mustang coupe and if you’re at SEMA, be sure to stop by the CDC booth to check it out firsthand!

South Florida Stangs Patriot Run

In just a couple of months, the Stangs of South Florida will be hosting a charity event called The Patriot Run.  The goal behind this gathering of Ford Mustang fans is to pay tribute to the victims of 9/11 as well as fallen heroes from the Armed Forces.  Proceeds resulting from the charity will be directed entirely For The Fallen (www.forthefallen.org).  Nearly 200 Mustangs are planned to parade from Davie, FL to Islamorada in the Floria Keys under police and fire department escort.  Every car will be issued an American flag and a printed name & profile of a 9/11 victim to carry along throughout the event.  Steeda Autosports, as well as many local vendors, will be sponsoring the event, offering prizes, and contributing to a raffle.  The final destination for the Patriot Run is Holiday Isle in Islamorada, where there will be a car show, the raffle, and an honorary tribute to the Fallen.
