This brand new 2011 Mustang GT 5.0 was designed and built by Cahaba Custom Cars LLC. in Birmingham, AL. Various design modifications were implemented to further boast its already muscular appearance. We have added a custom painted front and rear spoiler, body color rear air diffuser, lowering springs by Ford Racing and a very throaty but beautiful sounding Roush exhaust with 4” chrome tips. All of our work is done in house to ensure the highest quality product available. PPG Global paints and clear coat were used. The striping on this car was painted over the original color and then burried under 5 layers of clear coat, wet sanded and polished to a mirror finish. This is far superior to the traditional factory vinyl tape stripe in looks, feel, and durability. Click on Read more for fantastic gallery and more information!

LAS VEGAS – For the second year in a row, the Chevrolet Camaro is the “hottest car” at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas. The SEMA Award recognizes the most accessory-friendly vehicle, based on the volume of aftermarket parts exhibited at the annual showcase of automotive performance and personalization.
The SEMA Award was first handed out in 2010, which not only makes Camaro a two-time winner, but the only car to receive the award. Its selection reflects the aftermarket industry’s enthusiasm and continued investment in America’s most popular sports car.
Camaro posted 6,119 sales in October, again leading the segment and topping the next-closest competitor nine of 10 months so far in 2011 – with sales up nearly 7 percent in the first 10 months of this year.
“After more than two years on the market, the Camaro continues to inspire creativity and Chevrolet is thrilled to see that expressed in all the wonderfully personalized examples here at the SEMA Show,” said Chris Perry, vice president, Global Chevrolet Marketing and Strategy. “Camaro has always been a car customers love to personalize and we are doing all we can to support them and the aftermarket industry with parts and accessories that help turn their dreams into reality.” Read more!

DEARBORN, Mich., Aug. 25, 2011 – Ken Block is known as a trendsetter, certainly when it comes to his on-the-edge driving. Be it in the World Rally Championship or in his recently released Gymkhana FOUR video on YouTube, he is ahead of the curve. Now, Block and the Monster World Rally Team are on the leading edge of technology as their multidiscipline rally H.F.H.V. (Hybrid Function Hoon Vehicle) Ford Fiesta is equipped with Ford SYNC®.
Block’s Fiesta is the first competition-ready car armed with Ford SYNC, which allows him to enjoy a wide array of award-winning in-car connectivity and communications features including hands-free, voice-activated calling and turn-by-turn directions as well as the ability to play his favorite music via Pandora.
“I love my new Ford Fiesta H.F.H.V. race car because it’s one of the most unique competition race cars on the planet and is capable of doing many different styles of driving. One unique feature of this car is that it still has SYNC hooked up inside. So whenever I’m transitioning between rally stages or just driving around town, I’m able to make phone calls, have my texts read to me, look up businesses and listen to my favorite driving songs – it’s awesome!”
Ford SYNC will not replace Block’s longtime co-driver Alex Gelsomino, as use of the turn-by-turn direction capability is not legal for rally competition. However, it can help Block find the Parc Expose or the MWRT paddock service area in his street-legal Fiesta. Read more and watch the video of Gymkhana FOUR!
