Let me just start off by saying I'm stoked you guys nominated me! I would've never thought my car would be nominated. I got the car as a gift from my grandmother after having surgery on my neck. Once I saw the car, i fell in love with it. Exactly what I wanted, black on black coupe, V8 and RWD. Thats when the addiction started.As soon as I got it I had the mod bug. I started changing little things here and there, then everyone knows little things lead to bigger things. This is my first car, I got it when I was 16 turning 17, and I'm turning 18 pretty soon. I tried to make my own style with it and do things the way I want despite others trying to steer me away from things lol. Its done in the looks deparment, now its time to focus on making this piggy fly! Pictures of the car from when i got it and its different looks! (under mods) GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!

Wow! I honestly wouldn’t ever think my car would even get nominated to be ROTM, I see everyone else’s rides and just get completely blown away! To think you all like my ride means a lot to me.

Where to start… before I even got the a mustang I had been stalking this forum for many months, maybe even years, just trying to learn from all the great looking cars on here and all the ins and outs of these cars.

Then I got the car October 15, 2011 after some very long and pretty intense searching for a non-molested Mustang around my area. I actually came across my car from Germantown, MD and it was on a seller’s special where they dropped the price from 5500 to 3500 and decided to check it out as I wasn’t much of a convertible guy. Well I get there and wow, I fell in love with this car after going through so many ruined cars I had looked at before…


This is the day I first looked at the car and put a down payment on it...




Well to fast forward to now; I’m coming up on 2 years actually owning it and making it something I could be proud of. I always find myself going all over the place with my car, one second I want to mod the hell out of it, other times I want to just let it stay as is and enjoy it. Well I think I have found a happy median for my car for now as I want to be able to bring the best out of my pretty much stock motor and drivetrain.

How it sits now...

Thanks brotha. Only two votes ill get are mine and yours hahahahaha. Im honestly just happy to be nominated. I didn't know I was supposed to give its life story though haha.

Brian you gotta quit putting your car down like that!!! My vote is between your car and Darhawk's car, and I don't think I'll make my choice tonight. I'll wait until tomorrow and see how I feel then. Your car is VERY clean and VERY tastefully modded.

Hahah. Thanks brotha. I try not to hate so much but it kind of helps fuel the fire to do more to it. Itching for boost still.

Everyone up there has really nice cars. To be among y'all is honorable enough for me
