The Red Pearl

Kelly Moore • Ellenton, FL • 2004 Mustang GT

Check out Kelly Moore's Redfire Metallic 40th Anniversary Mustang GT. Kelly's added an array of performance mods, including a BBK 78mm throttle body, CAI, long-tube headers, a custom X-style midpipe, and Magnaflow mufflers. The custom paint comes thanks to Muscle Car Garage of Bradenton, Florida, and performance modifications were installed by Exhaust Solutions.


Mitch Frankson • Kyle, TX • 2012 Mustang GT

Mitch Frankson has big plans for his Race Red '12 Mustang GT. The rear has been upgraded with UPR Products suspension parts and Strange Engineering adjustable shocks and struts. Race Star Drag Star wheels can be found on all four corners, wrapped in Mickey Thompson tires. Exhaust notes flow thanks to a Flowmaster Outlaw series axle-back, and Bama Performance is responsible for tuning. Mitch's Steed has gone a best of 12.20 at 117 mph. We love the look, Mitch.


John Dairchuk • Gibraltar, MI • 1990 ASC McLaren Mustang

John Dairchuk is the proud owner of this 39,000-original-mile '90 ASC McLaren Mustang. After owning Fox-body Mustangs all his life, as well as an '03 Cobra convertible, John felt the itch to get back into a Fox—hence the McLaren. John installed new '03-'04 Cobra brakes, Bilstein shocks and struts, Maximum Motor-sports rear upper/lower control arms, and a 3.73 gear set. Underneath the hood, he smoothed the engine bay, installed a Trick Flow Specialties cam, AFR heads, a GT-40 intake, and a 70mm throttle body. John tells us he plans to convert the interior to black next. Great work, John!

Work Hard, Play Hard

After waiting 26 years, Brad Snyder now owns his dream car—an '86 5.0L five-speed Mustang. Brad has recently upgraded his ride with to BBK shorty headers, a Hurst short-throw shifter, a custom exhaust, and a built engine. Originally Oxford White, Brad repainted his ride a custom pearl white. The beige interior remains and features A/C, cruise control, and power locks. Dreams do come true for those who wait. Right, Brad?
