CDC Shaker for the new 5.0L Ford Mustang

Aftermarket players have always done well with the Ford Mustang and Classic Design Concepts (CDC) is no exception to the norm.  They are back in headlines this week with an all-new 5.0 Mustang Shaker Hood System, which is designed to fit the 2011 (and up) Mustang GT.  This kit is crafted to be a direct fit and match perfectly with OEM specifications, as is any other CDC Mustang project.

What’s more, the CDC Shaker Hood kit maintains the use of all factory attachment points, leaves the under-hood state just as it was before installation, and leaves the factory strut tower brace alone.  But wait, there’s more! Additionally, there’s not paint or grunt work required to make the fitment and finish look like it came “that way”.

CDC_Ford_Mustang_Gumball_2010

The “Undefeated” Team from Classic Design Concepts (CDC) is set to put their SEMA special to the test in the 2010 Gumball 3000 rally race.  The “Weekend Warrior” Ford Mustang , which we saw enter the stage at SEMA, is no stranger to being a dualistic track and street terror.  “The concept behind the Weekend Warrior, which we unveiled at SEMA in 2009, was to build a street legal Mustang that could also double as a track car,” said George Huisman, president of Classic Design Concepts.

The Weekend Warrior Ford Mustang is well-poised to take on the field, with add-ons including, but not limited to: Ford Racing parts, upgraded rubber on all 4 corners, Baer braking, and Maximum Motorsports suspension components.

Take a good look at the laundry list of goodies CDC has thrown onto the Weekend Warrior Mustang and wish the “Undefeated” Team from CDC good luck in the Gumball 3000 rally!

The Compilation of Ford Mustang Special Editions

2009 Ford Mustang

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past oh say, 15 years, you’d sure to realize the Ford Mustang aftermarket is something that continues to sizzle on far beyond the dreams Carroll Shelby and Lee Iacocca ever imagined back in the 1960s.  The staggering number of late-model Mustang spin-offs is something that could be seen as awesome, inspiring, or even sometimes comical.  It’s quite daunting just how many flavors of the Ford Mustang there are.  What’s more, we’ve done our best to draft up a list for you to digest, observe, and most importantly–help continue to add to it where we’ve left out!

Ready for this bitter pill?  You better be, because we’re going to take a look at the comments to see if there are any we’ve missed (to date) and then also recruit you to help build the SN95, Fox, Mustang II, and Classic special edition lists.  We’ve got the page breaks ready, so let’s hear it!

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!
