VIDEO: This is What Over 1200+ Mustangs Looks Like!


If you’ve been to any of our previous car shows, you know that we’ve been growing. This year, our team went HUGE with our car show and attracted over 1200+ Mustangs and well over 4,000 people to Delaware County Community College in Media, PA. People poured in from around the county joined us and helped break every attendance record!

With Mustangs causing a stir in local towns for miles, we had every generation, color and special edition you could think of! Not only were the baddest Mustangs in the country with us, but we had contests, prizes and activities for everyone! Two dynos (dubbed “Dueling Dynos”) were on-site with dueling horsepower pulls from supercharged, turbocharged, nitrous-fed and all motor Mustangs putting down anywhere from 400 to nearly-1000 horsepower. The muffler rapping competition put some of the loudest Mustangs with the most aggressive sounding tone against each other. We had award winners for every generation, club participation, guys pick, girls pick and even an overall champ of the day!

We had some of the biggest names in Mustang performance join us! And of course, the smokin’ hot AmericanMuscle Girls were there signing autographs and giving a sneak preview of the 2013 AM Girls Calendar!

Finally, with your help we were able to raise close to $15,000 for this years charity, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation!

Comment below and tell us if you had a great time and we hope to see you next year!

A look inside Ford’s PDC employee-only car show

Filed under: , ,

2000 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra R - 2,075 original miles. Red.

One might reasonably assume that people who work in automotive design or engineering are automatically car guys and gals, but in our experience, that isn't always the case. The best way to tell isn't by looking at what they are working on - it's by looking at what they have parked in their own garages. And judging by Ford's annual internal Product Development Center Employee Truck & Car Show in Dearborn, the Blue Oval isn't just overrun with serious car nuts; the company's ranks not only have lots of respect for the fast and beautiful, they have a surprisingly deep appreciation for the off-the-wall, the misunderstood, the maligned and the orphaned.

While technically open to the entire company, Ford officials tell us this annual PDC show is primarily composed of designers' and engineers' vehicles, both present and retired. As one might reasonably expect, this year's crop of about 400 cars included a superabundance of Mustang models, but the thing that surprised us about the show was the sheer variety of vehicles displayed - both in era and manufacturer. Ford as a company was obviously well represented, but employees clearly maintain a love for all marques from all countries. Plenty of General Motors and Chrysler cars were parked on the lawn, along with small-volume oddities from companies like DKW, Citroën, Lancia, Triumph and so on. There were even a few bikes and farm implements on display. Condition ran the gamut, from low-mileage timewarp cars to rough and ready daily drivers, and we saw everything from barn finds to drag cars, hot rods and off-road rigs.

Friday's event was the show's 12th annual installment, and this year's featured class centered on station wagons, of which about 50 were included. Everything from real classic woody wagons to humdrum 1980s kinshleppers, disco-era barges and shooting brakes made the scene.

What were we most impressed by? An absence of trailers. While there were a few lurking around the show's periphery, it looked like the handful of vehicles that arrived on them weren't street legal. The vast majority of the cars and trucks on display weren't the sort of collectible that gets trailered to and from shows, only to be hermetically sealed and sparingly driven upon its return home. Owners told us over and over that they drove their cars to the show. That, as much as anything else we saw, is cause for celebration.
