Ride of the Week: A Show-and-Shine Mustang GT
We can't all build the cars of our dreams or ones that are worthy of gracing magazine covers. Busy lives, money restraints and other things can be major limiting factors. But that doesn't mean that enthusiasts can't enjoy what they're able to build and work with at the present moment—and that's what our Rides of the Week are all about. Maybe its creating a car for weekend warrior-ing, having a classic to tinker with in the garage or choosing a modern car that you can add to as you can.
This week, meet Frankie and his '05 Ford Mustang GT. It's a car that works great as a daily and can be dressed up for shows that he and family enjoy attending together. Not everything always turns out as planned and a true enthusiast learns how to work with that. Take the wheels for example, when the original chrome wasn't working these were powder-coated white. Unsure if he'd love it at first, the look grew on him.
We salute all the enthusiasts out there who love what they have and constantly strive to make it the best they can. Watch the video above and check out more details in the gallery below.
