If there’s a downside to Mustang Week, it’s the searing July temperatures, but the only thing that burned hotter than the sun on Friday was the passion for Ford’s pony car at the annual Mustang Week car show sponsored by the enthusiasts at Late Model Restoration.

Blow-By Racing made a splash at the car show by showing off a Shelby GT350R boosted by a ProCharger. Rocking a D-1SC pullied for 5.5 pounds of boost, the R-model spun the BBR Dynojet rollers to the tune of 650 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque. Redline Tuning was stationed next door, so Andreas Keller came over and upgraded the Shelby with a set of his company’s hood lifts.

With about 600 spots available, this year’s show sold out in about 30 minutes. That’s just how excited enthusiasts are to show off their rides on Mustang Week’s main stage at Myrtle Beach Mall. As such, this is the day most people look forward to all week and—for the regulars—quite possibly all year.

Surrounding the car show is a throng of manufacturer and vendor displays that creates an environment tantamount to a Mustang-oriented SEMA show. Not only do these companies show off products and offer information, but many of them also have display vehicles nice enough to enter the judged show.
