5.0 Mustang & Super Fords
5.0 Showcase - April 2013
Best of the Bag
Our boy Matt Knab really knows how to hit us hard. Here's his collection of Mustangs, which includes the Terminator that he entered in the King of the Street competition a couple years back, an '88 Saleen, and a '12 Mustang GT. Matt's Cobra boasts a turbocharged combination, while the Saleen is supercharged. The GT is the latest Mustang in Matt's stable and already boasts several exterior upgrades, including True Forged wheels.
Tim Preston is a corporal for the Goodlettsville Police Department and hails from Greenbrier, Tennessee. He's always had a thing for white Saleens, so after owning several Mustangs, he purchased this '97 Saleen 97-0059. “I purchased the car from the original owner and it has over 100,000 miles,” Tim says. This is Tim's fourth Saleen, and he's also owned numerous Cobras. He tells us the only Saleen option this car has is a 3.55 gear, and it's all original, with the exception of an X-shape crossover pipe and Cobra-style headlights.
Most of us would be happy starting out with a Mustang like Tyler Merrill's '91 coupe. As you can see, it's still a few cylinders short of where we all want to be, but he has big plans for the car. Tyler started his improvements with smoked headlights, smoked taillights, and Cobra R replica wheels, and he plans to redo the interior, as well. His big-picture mod list includes a bigger engine (of course), a cowl hood, and lowering springs, but for a 15-year-old student, he's off to a good start. He looks forward to building his Fox with the help of his father, and he's even more proud to be part of what he calls “Mustang Nation.”
