2010 SEMA Mustang Preview - Click above for high-res image gallery

With all of Ford's talk about their lineup of custom Fiestas, Explorers and F-150s at SEMA 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.

FORD MUSTANG LEGACY AT SEMA CONTINUES WITH POWERFUL, STYLISH VERSIONS OF THE 2011 PONY CAR

* Ford Mustang is sure to please at the SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show in Las Vegas Nov. 2-5, where nine Mustangs will show off their performance and style
* A Mustang GT by Ford Vehicle Personalization uses a white and coral theme along with several Ford Custom Accessories items painted in liquid silver to give this car a look all its own. Other Mustangs show off themes such as breast cancer awareness and street warrior
* Along with customized versions of Mustang, the 2012 Mustang Boss 302 will give visitors to the Ford stand a look at the reinvented legendary road race machine from the late 1960s

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."

      The only OK one is the Modsteel one.

      Thats it? It looks cheap like they did in the 80s.. The only way to make these cars a big seller is to go back to an older look. When you see a new Camaro driving down the street it turns heads!! The old style looks great and it looks like a muscle car that it should.. And the Dodge charger looks good as well..

        That would be sweet...I'll take one too..

        I only hope the Boss edition allows you to delete the stripes cause I'm with you- an all-dark color with dark rims.

        These SEMA cars remind me of fashion shows. No woman in her right mind (unless she was a drugged-out celebrity like Lady Gaga) would wear the vast majority of the crap they display in those shows. Same thing with these SEMA cars- just over the top artistic crap without any real world desirability (except pimps maybe).

      sema is funny.

      sema was at one time the speed equiptment manufacturers association, now it's half naked women and rediculous cars you will never see anywhere except in auditoriums. i have one question what nimwhitts pay equally nimwhitted fabricators huge sums of money to build all this junk?

      How predictable.
      Everyone of those examples have trashy stripes and graphics.
        • 4 Years Ago
        And none have HIDs. Is it too much to think about replacing the wack halogens when tuning a car when you're doing paint, body kits, suspension, wheels, etc?
      • 4 Years Ago
      thats ok , i never pay any attention to any negative comments about anything , i enjoy all the rides and i know how much hard work goes into each project
      • 4 Years Ago
      That "SS" logo a little to close to the GM font to be shown with a Mustang rendering don't ya think?
      • 4 Years Ago
      I like the Ford Special Vehicle version, the MRT, and the Street Scene versions. The Ford variant would look great in black with gold accents (instead on red on white).
      • 4 Years Ago
      Cars look great, but Mustang taillights suck
      • 4 Years Ago
      Engraver11, Thank God, and a hell of a lot less money, Just saying.
