Cruizin' Stallion

Tom Triatik • Sobieski, WI • '11 Mustang GT

After a quick test drive at his local Ford dealership, Tom Triatik became the proud owner of this Kona Blue '11 Mustang GT. Tom has upgraded the outside with copper-orange racing stripes, an Eibach springs lowering kit, and MMD quarter-window louvers, and taillight bezels. For performance, he installed a Borla S-type, axle-back exhaust system; Koni adjustable shocks and struts; and a Steeda short-throw shifter; and Panhard bar. Keep up the good work, Tom.


Hand-Me-Down Snake

Russ Consiglio • Grosse Pointe Park • MI • '07 Shelby GT500

Hand-me-down presents aren't always great, but Russ Consiglio's father-in-law gave him the gift of a lifetime. After purchasing this '07 Shelby GT500 for a steal from the family, Russ had his way with it. Immediately, he added new custom chrome wheels, followed by having the whole car repainted white with pearl blue stripes. The inside has all been replaced with all-new carbon-fiber pieces. Russ tells us his GT500 now sits beside his new '13 Backdraft Racing A/C Cobra clone. Sounds like quite the duo, Russ.


Blacked Out

Robert Plouviez • Spokane, MO • '03 Mustang GT

Robert Plouviez is the proud owner of this '03 Mustang GT. Over the two years he's owned it, he's added an array of performance mods, including Trick Flow Specialties heads and cams, a Professional Products Typhoon intake, BBK 78mm throttle body, and a JLT CAI. He's also installed JBA headers, an off-road, H-style mid-pipe, Centerforce Stage 2 clutch, 3.73 gears, KYB dampeners; and TSW Thruxton wheels. Robert told us it's still an ongoing project. We can't wait to see it finished.


Keep It In the Family

Brian Clark • Durham, NC • '70 Mach 1

This '70 Mach 1 was originally Brian Clark's mother's first car. In preparation for a baby, she put the car into storage, where it sat for over 22 years, until Brian's father brought it out and attempted to get it running. About five years ago, Brian's father called and told him he would be getting an early inheritance gift. The car arrived two weeks later, and that's when the restoration started. Brian has kept the car almost completely original and restored it to its former glory. He now enjoys the car with his family. Great job, Brian!
