Smoothed, shaved, dropped, and blown; this is not your mainstream daily driven 2006 GT. Arizona native, Tony Arme ( aka Yur2slo ) has been spinning wrenches on hotrods and classics since the tender age of 12. Fifteen years later we are presented with the fruits of his experience, ingenuity and life long love of Mustangs.
Modded Mustangs’ resident suspension guru and California native, Eric AKA “Jazzer the Cat”, takes the twisty road less traveled approach to modding. Straight-line acceleration and corner destroying capabilities, Jazzer combines them both purrrfectly in his 2002 Saleen. Eric has now gone Griggs GR-40/SLA upgrade after replacement of his previous Mustang love, a 1985 GT. His original intention was to leave the Saleen in OEM form, but the love of auto-cross soon trumped those plans. Already a potent performer in stock form, Eric saw room for improvement and opted for the extreme approach to the carving of corners.
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..!
It is just about everybody’s desire to have a street legal race car. A car that breathes fire and tears it up at the track, yet is beautiful to look at and has nice street manners. Folks, there just aren’t many cars on the street more pleasing to look at than a ‘69 Mach-1.
