AmericanMuscle to Host 10th Annual Mustang Show

PAOLI, Pa. – AmericanMuscle.com announced the date for its 10th annual Mustang Car Show: Saturday, June 16th, 2018. (For those who have attended in the past, they might note that the show will be held two months earlier than in previous years.) The event will be hosted at the Maple Grove Raceway in Mohnton, Pennsylvania. This is the nation’s largest one-day Mustang show, and has raised funds for various charities since its inception. Most notably, Philadelphia’s Make-A-Wish® Foundation has been the charity of choice for the company since 2015.

Events like the burnout competition will be returning, showcasing a handful of Mustangs roasting their rear tires to the crowd’s delight. Along with the burnout competition, the revving contest will be back this year, giving Mustang owners the chance to flex their muscle and let their pipes scream for the crowd. There will also be exhibition drag races, pitting some of the most modified vehicles against each other in the ultimate of speed show downs.

If you’re looking to pick up new parts at the show, you will be in luck. You’ll be able to purchase parts for your Mustang, and you’ll have the opportunity to win some at the multiple raffles, which will run the duration of the show.  A variety of AmericaMuscle experts will be on hand to answer all technical questions and meet with customers. Special guest Chip Foose will be in attendance, posing for pictures and signing autographs. Attendees have the option to pay $25 for general car pre-registration, $35 for day-of registration, or opt for VIP show registration at $75 a pop, which includes prime parking in the heart of the show. Once again, 100% of the proceeds from the VIP parking will go toward Make-A-Wish®.

The Make-A-Wish® Opening Ceremony Parade will kick-off the end of show ceremonies, with a parade of convertible Mustang cruising down the strip with a Make-A-Wish® child riding in the passenger seat.

The goal of the show is to ultimately celebrate America’s favorite pony car, and the community of enthusiasts that love and drive them, while benefiting a worthy cause. We hope to see you and your friends at AM2018 at Maple Grove Raceway on June 16th!

LEGENDARY PERFORMANCE CAR INNOVATOR STEVE SALEEN LAUNCHES ALL-NEW VEHICLE AT 2017 LA AUTO SHOW

CORONA, CA—November 27, 2017, Saleen Automotive, Inc. headed by CEO Steve Saleen, a leader, innovator, designer, manufacturer, racer, and trendsetter in mass customization has been producing vehicles more than 34 years with six generations of Saleen Mustangs, Trucks, and America’s Supercar—the Saleen S7. Steve announces the upcoming launch of the Saleen 1, which has been affectionately referred to as the S1. This newest Saleen vehicle, which will debut at the 2017 LA Auto Show, has been 100-percent designed and engineered by Steve Saleen and his team at their base of operations in California. Saleen Automotive will commence manufacturing of the Saleen 1 immediately.

We invite all media to our Press Conference at the LA Auto Show at the Saleen Display in the West Hall Atrium on Thursday, November 30, 2017, at 10:35am for a first look at this new vehicle, and to garner complete and accurate details on this build. For those unable to attend in person, the Press Conference will also be live on our Facebook Page. The LA Auto Show opens to the public on Friday, December 1.

Saleen Automotive Inc. is a US-based corporation headed by CEO Steve Saleen and located in Corona, CA.

Jiangsu Saleen Automotive Technologies Group (JSAT) is a new, separately owned automotive company based in China. JSAT is building a billion dollar, modern manufacturing facility to produce Saleen vehicles in China for worldwide distribution.

The genesis of the Saleen 1 began with JSAT purchasing the tooling and remnants of the Artega GT. JSAT asked Steve Saleen to assist in modernizing the Artega GT for today’s sophisticated consumer. In reality, such an “update” was not feasible, which resulted in a new vehicle being designed and built from scratch.

Initially, all Saleen 1 vehicles will be built in North America. Eventually, at an appropriate time in the future, the JSAT factory will assume responsibility for an entirely new line of Saleen vehicles, including the Saleen 1. Additionally sales, marketing, distribution, service, and warranty-related activities relating to the Saleen 1 in the United States will be handled domestically.

“We are excited to have returned to our heritage with a high performance Saleen Sport Truck that fits perfectly within our program for a full line of high performance vehicles carrying the Saleen brand,” Said Steve Saleen, CEO of Saleen Automotive. “Our Sport Truck heritage includes many race wins as well as a national championship. In the past, our Saleen S331 Sport Trucks and the extremely popular Ford Harley Davidson F150 SC were produced at the Saleen Automotive factory. The time is right that we return to the market with a product that feeds an audience of hungry Saleen Truck enthusiasts.”

The Saleen Sport Truck will be instantly recognizable as a Saleen-exclusive offering. The new bodywork includes a functional air dam, front brake ducting, racing inspired grille and hood with center sculpting. The rear of the truck will feature Saleen nameplate trim in the center of the tailgate and large rear exhaust tips that tuck neatly into the lower rear valance for a race inspired look. Racecraft suspension, Super Charged optional interior and brakes are also available. The trucks will be available with side skirts or a full body step kit and Saleen-exclusive alloy wheels wrapped with General Tire high performance tires.
