If you have modified your modern Mustang, odds are you have purchased something from AmericanMuscle.com. Born of the S197 era, this company quickly grew into an online superstore for all things to modify your Mustangs. To celebrate its customers the company began hosting a car show and that soon outgrew its venue and moved to the storied Maple Grove Raceway. This year’s eighth-annual event took place on August 13.

Regular Front Page readers know that AmericanMuscle.com is giving away a new Mustang boosted to 850 horsepower and sporting over $30,000 in modifications. Naturally, that car was on display at the AM 2016 Show.

Moving to the racetrack not only allowed for the addition of more cars, but it opened up the event to offer more activities, like drag racing and a burnout contest. At its core, the American Muscle event is still a car show—one that attracted 1,700 Mustang this year—with a heart. That’s because the proceeds from the event are donated to charity and this year’s event benefited the Make A Wish Foundation.

This year American Muscle donated $60,200 to the charity, but that wasn’t all they did to help Make A Wish this year. The company learned about a teen that loved his Mustang and wished for some modest upgrades. Instead, American Muscle opted to completely revamp his Mustang (see gallery below for the before and after), including repairing its damaged rear quarter.
