Black Medallion

Ryan Mannella • Pittsburgh, PA • 2001 GT

Ryan Mannella’s black ’01 Mustang GT is one clean ride. Having owned it since he was 16 years old, this Stang has been a father and son project. He’s currently beefed it up with a built engine, featuring forged internals, and aftermarket heads and camshafts. The rearend features a 4.10 gear ratio, and exhaust notes flow thanks a Borla Cat-Back exhaust system. He’s also added a staggered set of black Bullitt wheels and an ’03-’04 Cobra front bumper. Great job, Ryan!

White Strides

Ryan Minn • Palm Coast, FL • 2011 GT/CS Mustang

Former “catfish” lover Ryan Minn is the owner of this ’11 GT/CS Mustang GT. Ryan tells us he uses his ride as a weekend toy, and likes to attend car shows and cruise nights in his trusty Steed. Modifications have been kept to a minimum, including tinted windows, custom GT/CS hood spears, a J&M adjustable Panhard rod, 3-inch resonator deletes, an FRPP GT500 axle-back, and a custom SCT tune. He’s also removed the side stripes and added 5.0 emblems.

’Vert This

Bill Miller • Columbus, GA • 1992 Convertible

Bill Miller is the proud owner of this ’92 convertible Mustang. According to Bill, his Stang was part of a limited run of dealer-modified cars (number 2 of 10) prior to the introduction of the ’93 SVT Cobra. It features a functional ram-air hood, factory ’93 Cobra wheels, black leather interior, manual transmission, and a premium sound system. It also sports 3.73 gears, the rear luggage rack was deleted, and a rear spoiler was installed. We love your ride, Bill!


CJ Kreitzman • Staten Island, NY • 2001 SVT Lightning

CJ Kreitzman has stepped outside the box with his ’01 SVT Lightning. Outside, he’s given his ride custom touches, including a green airbrushed paint scheme, black graphics, 20-inch Black Mamba M2 rims, custom upper and lower grilles, and GroundForce lowering springs. He’s also installed a MagnaFlow after-cat exhaust system, K&N CAI, and a touchscreen head unit. Keep up the good work, CJ!
