If you have modified your modern Mustang, odds are you have purchased something from AmericanMuscle.com. Born of the S197 era, this company quickly grew into an online superstore for all things to modify your Mustangs. To celebrate its customers the company began hosting a car show and that soon outgrew its venue and moved to the storied Maple Grove Raceway. This yearâ€™s eighth-annual event took place on August 13.
Moving to the racetrack not only allowed for the addition of more cars, but it opened up the event to offer more activities, like drag racing and a burnout contest. At its core, the American Muscle event is still a car showâ€”one that attracted 1,700 Mustang this yearâ€”with a heart. Thatâ€™s because the proceeds from the event are donated to charity and this yearâ€™s event benefited the Make A Wish Foundation.
This year American Muscle donated $60,200 to the charity, but that wasnâ€™t all they did to help Make A Wish this year. The company learned about a teen that loved his Mustang and wished for some modest upgrades. Instead, American Muscle opted to completely revamp his Mustang (see gallery below for the before and after), including repairing its damaged rear quarter.
