5.0 Mustang & Super Fords
2011 American Muscle Mustang Show - Rain Prance
AmericanMuscle.com's Annual Show endured Through a rescheduling and rain
Horse Sense: AmericanMuscle's 3rd Annual Mustang Show raised $14,511 for the Wounded Warrior Project, a nationwide veterans' organization aimed at "helping injured service members adjust to post-military life through Mind, Body, Economic Empowerment and Engagement programs."
AmericanMuscle.com began hosting Mustang shows in 2009 with the thought, what better way to connect with customers than have a Mustang show? Customers can not only show off AmericanMuscle-purchased performance and aesthetic accessories, but they can purchase more at the show, and have the opportunity to win various prizes from AmericanMuscle's vast inventory.
The easiest way to get swag is to purchase raffle tickets and hope you have the lucky number for a set of wheels and tires, or a JLT Performance cold air intake, and the like. However, if you have the same luck as a 5.0&SF staffer, you have to buy your AmericanMuscle items the ol' fashioned way—with money. AmericanMuscle does take U.S. currency at the show, and you could order your next addition right there on the property.
Speaking of additions, we didn't see many Mustangs at the show looking straight out of Dearborn. They all featured additions, ranging from a simple cowl hood to a full-tilt supercharged or turbocharged engine combo.
Unfortunately for AmericanMuscle, the weather wasn't a dream. The actual scheduled show date was cancelled because of dangerous storms so it was pushed back a week. Well, it wasn't a whole lot better the next weekend. It rained the morning of the show for a bit, but cleared up, only to rain later on in the day while organizers were handing out raffled off prizes. The previous two shows featured Chamber of Commerce weather so hopefully this year's rain was anomaly.
Even so, some 2,000 spectators weathered the storm to gaze at over 600 Mustangs in attendance at Delaware County Community College's Media Pennsylvania campus. We were there till the rains threatened our cameras, so check out the caps and snaps for the sights of the day.
