More and more people are naming their Mustangs—even we are guilty of it. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania's Dave Demyan named his Legend Lime '05 GT Wanderlust II. Dave says he was extremely lucky to find the car in 2011 with just 15,000 miles on it. From Dave's own research, his Legend Lime is 1 of 448 built with its combination of options. Dave says he tries to keep the miles low, but he also drives the car regularly when nice weather permits. Of course, he hasn't left the car in stock form. Dave added a Magnaflow axle-back exhaust, a Barton shifter, an Injen cold-air intake, CPC sequential taillights, an Astra Hammond chin spoiler, and a Ford plenum cover. Dave admits his mod list is short, but the car gets its share of compliments while out in the wild.
You knew we couldn't call Robert Dye's '13 GT anything other than that, since he hails from Wailea, Maui, Hawaii. Robert's GT features the Brembo brake option, along with the Ford Racing upgrade package and a Shelby GT500 exhaust. All told, the GT is good for 444 horsepower. The image Robert sent was taken coming down from the highest point at Haleakala National Park on a recent Maui Mustang Club cruise.
For Ian Holodnak, this '91 LX is his fourth Mustang, and so far, it's his favorite. He had a built '92 GT before this coupe, but he got an offer he couldn't refuse, so he sold it. Ian was prepared to take a break from Mustangs, but that lasted about a week before he was patrolling the Web looking to fill the void. "I always liked the notchbacks, but I never came across the right one at the right time, till I found this one," Ian says. After pleading a good case to his wife, the black-on-black LX was headed for Ian's garage. Ian says the majority of the car's modifications center around improved handling, but he also says he has been stock-piling go-fast parts, including a used supercharger setup. The LX should be must faster by the time you read this.
