2010 SEMA Mustang Preview - Click above for high-res image gallery
With all of Ford's
talk about their lineup of custom Fiestas
this year, we were beginning to wonder if there were going to be any Mustang
models at the show.
Okay, so you're either laughing at us because you think we're idiots or you're laughing because you got the joke. A SEMA without Mustangs
is like Christmas without Santa Claus. So don't worry, pony car fans, there will be plenty of Mustangs in Las Vegas come next week.
In fact, there will be no less than nine custom Mustangs in Ford's display this year with a wide range of themes and modifications featuring both V6 and GT models. Ford will have its own products represented with a Mustang customized by Ford Vehicle Personalization, joined by cars built by Mustang Racing Technologies, Muscle Mustang & Fast Fords
magazine, Mobsteel, Street Scene Equipment and more. You can see each of the Mustangs in the gallery below, and check back next week for live pictures of the cars from the show floor.

Dearborn, Mich., Oct. 27, 2010 – Ford Motor Company is tapping the 2010 SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show in Las Vegas to showcase nine customized versions of Mustang, displaying the vehicles alongside the new Mustang Boss 302.
"The 2011 model year sets a new standard for Mustang, with everything from bringing back the revered 5.0-liter V8 Mustang GT to the all-aluminum 3.7-liter engine in the Mustang V6 with 305 horsepower and 31 mpg. And it doesn't stop for 2012, with the Mustang Boss 302 reveal and the track-ready Laguna Seca version," said Jim Owens, Mustang brand manager. "SEMA is a great way for Ford to not only show customers what's new for Mustang, but what they can do to make it their own Mustang."
While the 2012 Mustang Boss 302 is sure to impress visitors at the Ford stand, a variety of Mustangs on display also will give consumers an idea of the endless possibilities for making it a one-of-a-kind pony car.
"People understand Mustang and they fall in love with the emotion of the car, but at the same time they want to bring a little of their individuality to the table," said Melvin Betancourt, Ford design manager. "So if you're a Mustang enthusiast looking to set your Mustang apart from others, SEMA is like going into a toy store full of inspirational imagery. At the end of the day you have a Mustang that reflects the personality of the customer's vision."
