Every once in a great while a Mustang owner creates a machine that is on a tier above the masses of other ponies. Much more than a set of wheels, a fancy paint scheme, or an endless list of bolt-ons, this car is meticulously planned and purpose built. The ModdedMustangs.com 2013 Ride of the Year shows what is possible when limits are ignored and the passion for racing burns strong. For his efforts, we honor December 2013 Ride of the Month and 2013 Ride of the Year winner, iRoush.
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.
Dressed in blue and chrome, demanding your attention, October 2013 ROTM winner, xocolleenox, shows some Mustang love and loyalty with her 2007 GT vert. With the pictures to prove it, she is making this mustang one you’ll remember. From internet flirtation to the eventual face to face meeting, Colleen was able to snag a steed she could settle down with. But what relationship doesn’t come with a little dose of heartache?
Modifying cars has been around just about as long as there have been cars, but there are certain levels of modification. You can go basic and change a few things like wheels and tires or add a few bolt ons. You could be serious about it and go for the full paint job or dive deeper into the engine than most – or you can completely transform your Mustang like Dennis Bowen, aka Froush. His hard work over the years has not only netted a very sexy ride, but a coveted Ride of the Month win for September 2013.
July 2010, a lifelong relationship was created between man and machine when Andy, aka MachStang! bought his first mustang, a 2003 with a V6. Mach spent 2 years with this Mustang before he decided it was time to upgrade and step into a more powerful horse. One hot summer day in August of 2012, a trip to Ann Arbor, Michigan would bring to reality a lifelong dream of owning a competition orange steed. At the time of purchase, it was completely bone stock with the exceptions of a BBK CAI and a full off road Mach 1 cat back exhaust system. The car was meticulously cared for by the previous owner and only had 74K miles on the clock. The GT sat in a garage for most of its life when not out cruising the streets of Michigan. Andy would change that.
