click above image for more pics of the Galpin Warriors in Pink Mustang

Earlier this year, Ford revealed a special Warriors in Pink version of the Mustang. Only 2,500 were built and the sale of each went to helping fight breast cancer through donations to the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure charity. As we all know, one special version of the Mustang is not enough, so Galpin Auto Sports of Pimp My Ride fame has gone and "Galpinized" a Mustang convertible that will be given away as the grand prize in the Warriors in Pink Mustang Sweepstakes.

The Galpin Warriors in Pink Mustang is a bit more flashy than its factory sibling, sporting hot pink rally stripes over black paint, pink headlight splitters, a new grille and spoiler, a lowered suspension and 20-inch pink and black rims. The Warriors in Pink logo has also been hand painted on the back between the taillights for a custom touch. Electronic upgrades like a Kenwood nav system with 7-inch touchscreen are also included, along with new pink and black leather upholstery. Unfortunately, an untouched 200-hp V6 sits underhood, but we suppose this car is meant to be seen rather than driven.

If you're interested in winning the Galpin Warriors in Pink Mustang, or just think fighting breast cancer is a good thing, you can enter the sweepstakes before December 31st by visiting FordCares.com.

One Lucky Contestant Will Win a One-of-a-Kind Galpinized® Warriors in Pink Mustang from Ford and Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure

VAN NUYS, CA (December 17, 2007) – To raise awareness of the fight against breast cancer Galpin Auto Sports (GAS), home of MTV's Pimp My Ride, has created a one-of-a-kind Warriors in Pink Mustang for the Susan G.

      This is for charity, so in keeping with the spirit, I will keep the hysterical laughter to a minimum.

      AWWW LOOK ITS NBC'S KNIGHT RIDER KITT's GIRLFRIEND K.I.T.T.Y Knight rider is so lame for using a mustang
        • 7 Years Ago
        Lol @K.I.T.T.Y. Hehe funny you should mention it, I was actually thinking even THIS would make a better K.I.T.T. than what NBC showed last week.

      Oh this is retarted, So tired of breast cancer this and that, it is the most easily treated female cancer, I have noticed that breast cancer "survivors" are the most self centered whinos around. Meanwhile women and children are getting 3rd stage cancers that can't even be detected, let alone treated. I work in a hospital, these poor children get looked over for these pink mustang driving "survivors" everyday.

      What a bunch of Aholes
        • 7 Years Ago
        Yeah, I don't equate Breasts with Mustangs.
      • 7 Years Ago
      I'm a chick. If someone GAVE me that car, I'd try my damndest to get breast cancer just so I'd have to sell it to raise the money for my operations and chemo.

      In case you can't tell, I don't like Mustangs. In particular, pussified ones.
      • 7 Years Ago
      I wish the Mustang would just go away.
        • 7 Years Ago
        Right on. This thing makes me puke.

      3seriesisking, you must understand something. I believe in cancer research and supporting the cause. Ruining the Mustang is NOT the way to go. As a car enthusiast, I do look at the way a car looks, despite to what purpose it is to be used for. Stated planely, this is one of the ugliest mustangs ever made. It's design disgusts me so much that, at first glance, I thought i was looking at the devil himself.

      For less than $500, you could undo all that pink. Repaint the stripes, powder coat the wheels, and pick up a nice set of fitted seat covers.

      Give the car to me, I won't complain. I won't drive it until those stripes are changed, though.
      • 7 Years Ago
      I think it looks pretty cool except for the headlight splitters.
      • 7 Years Ago
      I'm not fan of the mustang... but i actually dont think its THAT bad looking.

      Sure a few things should be changed, but all in all i dont htink its as horribly done as the new Knight Rider car, and i've seen much...MUCH worse than this driving around every day.

      As for me, the only thing i think that needs to go is the headlight splitters, otherwise it doesnt look any different than most mustangs with stripes i see.

      If Ford really cared, they'd shoot that car and put it out of its misery.
