Finding the perfect combination of boulevard cruiser and full-on sports car is tricky at any price, particularly under six figures. This month’s Ridez winner, Mike Collins from Dayton, Ohio, has developed that exact package with stunning results. His 2008 Ford Mustang GT convertible started life as a capable top down muscle car and now has been taken to an entirely new level.
At first glance, the 20-inch Forgeline SP3 wheels, inspired by the ’08 Mustang featured on Motorz, hint at high performance. Tucked in behind the new metal, Baer six piston calipers rest on slotted and drilled rotors. Mike installed the brakes on his own after seeing Chris perform the same task in the Motorz big brake kit episode. A far more aggressive stance, courtesy of Eibach pro-kit lowering springs, bring the center of gravity even lower.
As well executed as the exterior is, lifting the hood reveals even more potency. After seeing our Mustang supercharger episode, Mike decided to add forced induction via an Edelbrock E-force supercharger. Helping to transfer that new power to the ground, an MGW short throw shifter, GT500 front struts and adjustable panhard bar keep the transmission and suspension up to speed. Amplifying the V8’s already musical engine note, a Flowmaster axel-back exhaust removes any doubt of this Mustang’s top shelf performance.
