That middle one really speaks to me. Looks like the right vintage for the Fox as a racecar. Sweet designs !!!I agree! its the one I will probably go with
the last one was just boredom making me go a little crazy
So By the end of May I will have black Saleen SC wheels 17x8/17x10 and will also have caster camber plates and a mach 1 chin spoiler to attach to the front with some modification!
So thanks to that I have done some renders in my spare time tonight!
Added some graphics/numbers because I plan to run some autocross this summer too!!
Thoughts would be wonderful!
I've already got a house with my family 14-21st and are registered for pretty much everything and will be happily celebrating my 21st Birthday in beautiful Myrtle Beach surrounded by wonderful mustangs!!! I will also have the beach house to myself on the night of the 14th so feel free to join me for a little birthday celebration!!!

As soon as I got the Calypso home We threw the seats out, cleaned the carpet(as best as possible), cleaned the plastic and windows(to remove tons of cig stains), headed to the junkyard to get some seats, Install the seats, find a new driver door handle and finally be able to drive it!
And that was just the first week lol that whole first two years was chaotic!
S197.2 Mustang 2011 and Beyond / Vaughn Gittin Jr. reveals the livery of the all new Monster Energy Nitto Tire 20« on: March 26, 2013, 04:03 PM »
BALTIMORE, Md. (March 26, 2013) – Formula Drift Champion Vaughn Gittin Jr. is excited to announce the formation of the RTR Drift Team, their tentative 2013 worldwide schedule, and the reveal of his Monster Energy Nitto Tire Ford Mustang RTR livery. This year marks the beginning of a new era for Vaughn coming into his tenth season of professional drifting with the formation of the RTR Drift Team. He is focused on his duties as RTR Team owner and driver, and is also taking full advantage of the freedoms that come along with being a team owner – as portrayed by his unique new livery. Check out the official VIDEO revealing the Monster Energy Nitto Tire 2014 Ford Mustang RTR. "I'm really pumped on this years' livery and overall aesthetics surrounding our efforts," says Vaughn. "For the first time in my career, I have been able to start from a clean slate and get a bit crazy with the look of my car that I will be using for battle. Being that the Mustang is my weapon of choice out there on the track, the base of the livery was inspired from old battle ships that were covered with 'dazzle camo'. From there, we added my XX5 (#25) logo and flag elements, along with some of my favorite colors and a little rock n' roll to get a livery that I feel really portrays me. I look forward to giving it some real battle scars!"
Vaughn will be piloting a brand new 2014 Ford Mustang RTR built by Autosport Dynamics and will make its first competition debut at Formula Drift Round 1 in Long Beach, California April 12-13. Having worked side by side with Vaughn since 2007, ASD will supply their valued support yet again for the 2013 season. Combining the superior knowledge and car building skills of the ASD crew, with the proven driving ability and aggressiveness behind the wheel of 2010 Formula Drift Champion Vaughn Gittin Jr., there is no doubt that the RTR Drift Team will be a serious force on the track. Check out the DETAILED SPECS of the Monster Energy Nitto Tire 2014 Ford Mustang RTR.
“I couldn’t be happier to continue working with the team at ASD,” says Vaughn. “We have had great success over the past 5 years together and the word ‘team’ as I know it has been redefined around our new focused effort. ”
While Vaughn’s number one priority is to chase down the Formula Drift Championship, he will also be taking his global efforts to the next level in 2013. Vaughn will once again head to China to compete in the World Drift Series, as well as participate in select competition and demonstration events in Europe. Just as years past, Vaughn will continue to perform at select demo and experiential events in the USA. Thanks to Monster Energy and Ford Motor Company, this year he will be heading to select military bases surrounding the Formula Drift Championship on Sundays after competition, to provide demos and ride-alongs for some of America’s finest men and women. See the 2013 TENTATIVE SCHEDULE.
“It is really crazy for me to look at my schedule for this year and realize all of the awesome that is about to go down all over the world behind the wheel of some badass Ford Mustangs,” adds Vaughn. “While I am pumped on all of the events we have chosen to participate in this year, I am especially excited about the opportunity to go visit some military bases and put smiles on the men and women’s faces that make me living my dream possible!”

Well there you go, thanks for helping clear that up Harris! I had doubts about how legitimate it was to begin with, it would seem unlikely Ford would let professional quality photos of their design studio get out without their permission.No problem man I remember seeing these about a year ago in a ford promotional video and thought the same thing that the rumors have been spreading but I found that article on jalopnik the other day and realized they had been debunked

and in that terribly mirrored photo up top the lines on the hood are the middle lines of the car so the "lights" are actually two halfs of the grille and where the guy is carving are where the lights would be!

theres a pic of this car i got from PRI!
it was rather awesome!!
That thing looks amazing! I would have never thought to pair those two cars together, but it works. I'm sad I couldn't be there, I had no idea they were doing a cruise in, the website hasn't been updated I guess. Maybe next time.It was a last minute thing for us if not I would've let you know! but yeah it was quite a car and took some serious thought and planning!
O'mazing !!! That is a thing of beauty!That it was Boss! and soo many cool little intricate touches like the roll handles being made to control electric windows! it was amazing.
This thing was at the Grill 57 Cruise in at Raleigh, NC today and I couldn't wait to rush home and show you guys!
What started life as two completely different cars, 51 years apart, ended up creating one of the most unique and astonishing custom cars that I've ever seen!
Why is it so unique you ask? Take a close look at that emblem in the grille. Looks familiar, huh?
Now take a look under the hood really quick.
Now go ahead and peek inside.
Seems strangely awesome, huh?
If you haven't figured it out yet its a 1956 Ford that was paired with a totaled 2007 Roush Mustang to make(In my opinion) the coolest custom ride that I've ever seen! And to top it off this Is an RPM exclusive sneak peek at a feature car in the upcoming March Issue of Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords!
Heres a video I found from earlier in the fall from a car show in Knoxville. Btw this guy drives this thing everywhere! He also has a '50s Ford pickup that has all of the '03 Lightning internals!
1956 Ford Victoria
