It’s a well-known fact many folks from Philly bleed green, but there’s one Ford Mustang fan there in particular who took it a step just a bit further. Nikki Frost knew she was going to get a new Mustang in her future, so she set her sights on a 2013 Mustang GT of a special variety–one which a good friend of hers told her about. No, not some pink one from the Mary Kay reject aisle…nor was it the Grabber Blue (we’re huge fans of this one)…and nope, it wasn’t School Bus Yellow, either.

Here’s yet another cool Ford Mustang character cast for this year’s SEMA show in Las Vegas–the NASCAR-powered 1965 Mustang Blizzard, by Ringbrothers™.

Here’s another blazing & eye-catching Ford Mustang to keep watch over at this
year’s week’s SEMA in Las Vegas. This special edition 2014 Mustang GT by Vortech Superchargers is loaded with extras aplenty, including (of course) ample boost to move on up to 600+ hp, a body kit, carbon-fiber hood, enhanced braking, upgraded wheels, and Falken rubber on all four corners, to round out the performance package.
Be sure to keep your eyes out for this one at the Vortech booth, as the Yellow Jacket is going to be one creating lots of buzz, with its vibrant colors and very tasteful modifications.
It seems like everyone is gearing up with plenty of anticipation for the Ford Mustang one-off extravaganza this year (as expected) at the SEMA 2013 show. Just ahead of the show’s coverage, however, we wanted to show you something that particularly caught our Mustang eye…a Shelby GT500 wagon. Yes, you read that right.
Strand Craft, a builder of super yachts, has taken on the task of putting up the bragging rights for a Shelby GT500 with its very own vast cargo hold. The guys over at Autoblog caught wind of this, and tasked their talents to render up what this car is aimed to appear as, in the photo included here. ”When” is the only question we have left to answer–and that’s easy enough–April 2014. Funny thing, that; the 50th Anniversary of the Ford Mustang just keeps getting better and better…
The SEMA show in Las Vegas is keyed-up for starting next Tuesday, and already, the list of hot-shot Ford Mustang specimens has grown long. One special one-off we took note of was the “Bad Penny” Mustang, produced by Classic Design Concepts (CDC). This deep black and copper-accented pony car has a heavy arsenal of performance add-ons to bolster the wow factor, and of course, is not short on style in the slightest. The CDC crew sought to come up with a classy way up wrapping up almost crass & rowdy performance…and they’ve done more.

Whether you have just picked up a Ford Mustang for the strip or the street, one of the most popular modifications nearly every enthusiast seeks after is that of suspension. Be it for looks or for slaloming through the twisties, lowering the Mustang is a very solid and appealing change-up from the stock 4×4 ride height.
Well, here’s a little break from all the 50th Anniversary of the Ford Mustang hoopla…let’s talk about this year’s upcoming SEMA show in ‘Vegas. This year’s show is going to be no exception from those past, with loads of aftermarket concepts pouring into the exhibition halls, inciting excitement & disgust all the same. One cool happening to take note of this time around is a very slick reenactment. No, not the Civil War kind, where participants get to nap for 4 hours while “playing dead”, but the type where a tribute to one of the greats is laid forth.
The folks at Hotchkis Sport Suspension are going to bring the one of the most renowned car chase scenes of all time to life for all to see. That’s right, McQueen’s dream will be replayed once again, for all to see, firsthand.
Keep reading to get the full scoop in the Press Release which follows, as there’s much more going on there than this simple scene of awesomeness.
Slapping an LSx into a Ford Mustang isn’t exactly something watershed; and it’s always going to be a major point of contention for both sides of the muscle/pony car spectrum. So now, the car company Equus has a project which they call the “Bass770″, which calls upon classic Mustang style as well as various Chevrolet Corvette cues. It’s a fastback Mustang with the unmistakable horse emblems on the grille and rear deck lid, but there is something more to it, once you look a bit deeper.
The Detroit Speed Ford Mustang is a classic project car that has been built entirely from the ground-up, with very little detail ignored by the crew. In the midst of the build process, the Aluma-Frame subframe assembly is completely taken into factor with painstaking measurement and precision application. From shock tower trimming to matching up to the framerail with some minor drilling, the Aluma-Frame has the capability to fit classics as well as many late model Mustangs.
There isn’t a whole lot more to say, other than the pictures from the PHR article during the installation process speak volumes of what this aftermarket suspension piece has to offer.
