We are constantly inundated with emails and phone calls asking, "How can I get my car in the magazine?" So, we decided we should give you the basic parameters in this spot. We know how you feel. Before we worked here, even we once dreamed of having our cars in a magazine. Unfortunately, there is no magic recipe for fame and fortune, but we do have a simple mantra. To be featured in 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords magazine, your car should be really pretty, really fast, or, preferably, both. Of course, if it doesn't quite fit those criteria, it doesn't hurt for the car to have a unique combination, a unique history, or a unique owner. Naturally, we can't know any of this unless you let us know. So, sending in photos and a description of your car is the first step. Our email address 5.0mailbag@primedia.com will work, as will 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords, 9036 Brittany Way, Tampa, FL 33619. Don't call, because it's hard to tell what your car looks like over the phone. You might end up in Showcase, but if we really like your car, we'll contact you about photographing it for a feature. Finally, it doesn't hurt to be where we are, which is usually at NMRA events and the World Ford Challenge. Our budget is limited, so we can't just fly to Montana to shoot one Mustang. There you have it.
