Meet the First Winner of the Dream Mustang Contest!

By Tori T.

It’s kind of cool enough just to be able to find a place online that lets you build and customize as many Ford Mustangs as you want and in the most sedate or wild ways you can imagine. But knowing you could win one of your creations? Yeah, “cool” just isn’t a strong enough word!

And that’s just what happened to James G. – he’s the very first winner of the Battle for Your Dream Mustang Contest! He designed many Mustangs using the Mustang Customizer at www.mustangcustomizer.com , including ones with various color schemes and others that were full-on concept cars. All told, he earned more than 195,600 points and had 195 entries!

His winning Dream Mustang then ended up in the hands of Galpin Auto Sports, who took over the deed of bringing the virtual Performance White GT into reality, complete with James-inspired Roush wheels, a 3D Carbon front splitter and a GT500 rear spoiler.

The car was delivered right to his door by Drift Champion Vaughn Gittin Jr.! You can click here to watch the video of the delivery as well as to learn more about James, and the reason why he had to sell his 1994 Cobra when he was in school!

The Mustang Customizer allows you to creatively customize a GT like James did, as well as a Shelby GT500, Boss 302, or V6, and you’ll have access to wheels, grilles, and body parts. Your car will automatically be entered into battle with other customizers , and users will vote for their favorites.

You can also use the downloadable PDF at Mustang Customizer to get a list of parts in order to build your real Mustang!

So far, more than 5 million Dream Mustangs have been created. Is one yours? Click here to go for it!

James was very fortunate to get his own car built on Mustang Customizer, I did not get on the sight in time to have a chance to build my dream mustang, but since have been on the alternate sight, after the contest and have built over five hundred, I just love this sight and am a Mustang freak, love those cars.
