My dad had a red fastback Mustang when I was a small child but sadly, he sold it. I myself started off my car experience at sixteen with a 1970 Plymouth Duster V8 muscle car and immediately began modifying it, making body, wheel and motor changes. I drove that car through college but ended up selling for a song and regret it.
After that, I had my eye on a nice white Fox Body Mustang, but fate intervened and I ended up buying a Mitsubishi VR4 twin turbo AWD monster instead. Again, the modifications came as fast as I could afford them. This time, besides motor and body, I moved into suspension. I build a 600 HP street terror. Besides drag racing, I started auto-crossing and road racing the car until I found out that it was way too heavy and tore up tires and brakes very fast.
So I moved on to owning a couple of Miatas. They are far more cost effective to modify, autocross and road-race. On this type of car suspension was very important for getting the most speed out of the chassis. After having a daughter I had to sell the roadster and around that same time I started working at ProCharger. I built upon my turbo, forced induction experience and learned all about centrifugal supercharging.
This is when I bought my 2011 3.7L V6 Mustang and promptly put a blower on it. I also built a V6 performance website to serve as a guide to others who are into modding their 3.7L Mustangs. I have to say, I was very impressed with the handling of this Mustang and now with the extra 200 HP I am enjoying it immensely.
There is just about no bolt I have not turned on this car. Since I work in the aftermarket automotive industry I have offered my car as a test mule for several companies. It was the first 3.7L Mustang to get several parts you now can order, as well as the first 3.7L Mustang to run a 12 second quarter mile.
I have installed and torn up a lot of parts including several sets of tires, brake pads and brake rotors. I have built the car as a road racing Stang and am currently building a Kenny Brown GT4 Spec racer. I just installed larger brake calipers and a roll cage and am ready to hit the track.

These guys are great! Customer service is absolutely top notch. Their pricing points are spot on and every month they off some sort of special on multiple parts. Not only that but the staff will educate you on the parts and their customer reveiw option of every part has been a huge help in determining the validity of each part you buy. American Muscle is the perfect example of what a full service parts distributor and custom tuning shop should be. I'm just glad they are Mustang exclusive!
