Most people who build a sweet ride do it at a cost. Often times, the spouse is left out. Michael Schibline built himself a killer Mustang in his 2007 Shelby GT. So awesome, in fact, it has been retired to The Showroom. When he went to make it up to his wife Jessica, he did it in one of the most amazing ways possible. His efforts not only kept things happy at home, they also earned him (and her) a win for Ride of the Month for November 2013 with her 2003 Mach 1.

Modded Mustangs is where members can express their personal style, taste and skills through modifying their Mustang into a rolling piece of art. There are a few Modded Mustangs members who excel in modifying their Mustangs in both performance and aesthetics. These people have been recognized through events such as ride of the month and ride of the year. There is a special place where these talented individuals will be inducted and is called The Showroom. The Showroom is the Hall Of Fame of Modded Mustangs and is an badge of honor that only the elite Mustangs can bear. These members have more than excelled in every aspect of the Mustang enthusiast. It is a rare and special privilege to make it to this platform and the members who you will see here have more than earned this honor. Building a Mustang of this caliber takes vision, heart, talent, patience, time and of course… money. What you see in the Modded Mustang Showroom is a collaboration of all these talents shaped and willed into solid iron and rubber.
The winter season is a depressing time for the Mustang owner, as most of us are forced to hunker up and wait out Mother Nature’s frosty wrath. But some Mustangs never sleep, whether they reside in the warmer southern locations or they are willing to brave the harsh inclement weather. December 2012′s holiday themed ROTM contest brought out the cars that dare to embrace the cold. When I say “cold”, I mean so cold that drama arises within the voting itself. After disqualifications of the two leading cars and an eventual perma-ban, we were left with the second ROTM two-way tie in Modded Mustangs history.
Gleaming redfire metallic paint, black chrome fr500′s, an endless list of modifications and a stance to die for, 2011 Chick of the Year, Tinkerbell_too, shows the boys how its done by winning her third MM crown. If the image above doesn’t make your right foot tingle or it doesn’t conjure sounds of screaming tires begging for mercy, then please look away. If it doesn’t make you want to grab your steed’s keys and head for the open road, windows and hammer down, then please stop reading now. But, if you can hear the deafening growl of an American v8 in full song and smell the burning rubber… If you can hear the tings of tire bits and pebbles being thrown into the wheel wells…your pulse quickens and you can feel adrenaline pumping through your blue oval veins from just a picture…then you can truly appreciate all that is Mustang.
Being the Mustang enthusiast that I am, I was naturally taken aback when I learned that our very own NastyFX4 (formerly Nastystang113) no longer owns the Mustang that won Ride of the Month for June 2011. According to Nasty, he needed something a little more comfortable and practical as a daily ride and went with a pickup truck (at least it was a Ford!). We can’t blame him there, can we? Well, sure we can, but I won’t because this ROTM has given me personally tons of inspiration and cold chills..!
