1969 Ford MustangArtist: Kris Horton * www.carsbykris.comThis '69 Mustang, dubbed "Boostang," is a good example of classic muscle mixed with modern technology. The exterior of the car is marked with subtle modifications (like narrowed and painted bumpers), black chrome trim-finish, and flush-mounted windows. Boostang looks sinister with its low stance, big brakes, and wide wheels, but functionality also shows in the front grille and lower spoiler. Foglights were removed and replaced with air intakes, which feed the twin-turbocharged 5.4L DOHC V-8 engine. The interior is race-inspired and finished with a rollcage, racing bucket seats, five-point safety restraints, and custom gauges. Visual modifications were kept simple and straightforward, maintaining the original appearance with a modern twist. This car is a nice blend of street machine and supercar, and manages to look aggressive without being too over-the-top.
