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.
What’s black and blue and screams raw power at every light? Moe’s 2012 5.0! Joining the forums in June ’12, this Mustang quickly and rightfully earned its place as the August ROTM. The story of Moe’s (AKA UDEAFBRO) 5.0 will make some true Mustang fans very jealous. Moe placed an order for his ’12 5.0 as soon as they came out in December, but even before he got the car in May, he had already ordered a Roush axleback exhaust, front CS grille, CS splitter, car cover, Steeda CAI and a tuner.
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.
Terminator. Triple black. Kenne Belle. 600 horses. Now that your Ford built neurons are firing, excited by thoughts of one of the most potent productions in blue oval history, we must postpone our lusting to honor MM’s may 2012 ROTM victor, Aceswild02. Ace’s meticulously detailed and painstakingly polished 2003 Cobra stands a clear cut above. Subtle details, extreme cleanliness and an array of wheel and tire combos, assure this mustang of a cameo in any hardcore MMer’s fantasy. So what do you do when you attain your dream car?… Make it better.
