It's not always about the latest cool new parts when the annual SEMAshow rolls around every November, it's also about the sweetest ridesfrom manufacturers and tuners alike. The 2004 SEMA show was of evengreater interest to us due to the timing of the on sale date to thepublic of the all-new 2005 Mustang. Ford took the opportunity to promoteits new Mustang by handing out said car to a handful of SEMA members.These SEMA members had just a few weeks to turn Ford's latest Pony carinto a heart stopping show ride. We gathered up all the images from theediting room floor of the 2005 Mustangs we saw at SEMA and have put themon our web site with details of the their build ups for you to envy.Don't forget to wipe your chin when you're done staring!

3dCarbon

The balance between styling, aftermarket features and cost thatinfluenced so many aspects of the 2005 Ford Mustang by 3dCarbon isevident right down to its wheels and tires. 3dCarbon tightened thetire-to-fender gap by integrating a body kit to emphasize the wheelstand and improve the suspension. A high-profile rear wing and otherexciting accessories create the new "Boy-Racer"--one that is sure toturn heads even when the car is parked. The "Boy-Racer" body kit andaccessories will also be available through Ford Racing Performance Partsdistributors.
