With the recent return of the 5.0 liter, the Mustang is once again at the summit of the pony car wars. “The Coyote” motor is pumping out unprecedented power and is changing the standards enthusiasts expect from their hard earned dollars. Dual overhead cams and variable valve timing bring this 5.0L into the technological forefront offering stock dyno and track numbers earlier Mustang incarnations struggled to achieve even after being modded. The aftermarket for the new power plant is exploding and only promises to expand. MM’s own CasperGT is raising the standard to which all future mustang generations will be compared… and he’s doing it all naturally aspirated.

Cars are an extension of their owners. Their personality, traits, and attitude carry over and form a bond between man and machine. And this particular bond may never be broken. Justin M. of Hattiesburg, MS (aka Zatrekaz) demonstrates this after his victory in the November 2012 Moderator ROTM with his 2003 Mustang V6. The journey starts in 2007 when Justin receives his car as a graduation gift from his parents. Being just a baby at 32K miles and with a clean canvas to work on, Justin could not be happier and was eager to start modifying his new pride and joy.
She saw you on the showroom floor
She walked around to your door
You let her in, then it began.
It was like a dream come true
For she used to dream of you
Your sweet & smooth sonic blue
Was made, for Ms. 32
September 11th 2001, marked one of the darkest periods in American history. Our beloved country was attacked and we all witnessed events that we never thought we’d see in our lifetimes. Thousands of lives were lost and many more from those who sacrificed themselves to save a complete stranger. In remembrance of this tragic event, ModdedMustangs.com decided to dedicate the 2012 September ROTM to be a Memorial Scavenger Hunt. The competition was tough as 15 cars stood in front of flags, memorial sites and national cemeteries in hopes to win the honor of being in the spotlight as a winner of ROTM. One car came out victorious in what turned out to be a very close race. Bryan from Charlotte, North Carolina, also known as FORDY9ER, with his 2002 Mineral Grey Mustang GT.
In the mustang realm, great things come in pairs: washed & waxed, ported & polished and built & blown. The populous of MM has spoken and in a momentous first, the August 2012 “Blackout” ROTM has yielded two victors. Votes poured in and once the carnage subsided, the competition was deadlocked. At the top of the heap of bloodied opponents and fallen dreams stood longstanding member RZNCAIN and second year member STRI8ED. These two black mares are more than worthy of individual accolades but have agreed to share the crown as reigning ROTM winners.
