Cool March 2013 Car of the Month: Sherrod Mustang

Congrats to Joe, as he is bringing back COTM for us in March of 2013!

While some believe that less is more, Sherrod Mustang couldn't just leave his car alone! Far from a sleeper, Joe has taken his 2008 Grabber Orange Mustang from a dime-a-dozen muscle car, and turned it into what it is today!

Powered by a Kenne Bell 2.8L Mammoth supercharged B302 Stroker with Livernois Stage 2 Heads and Comp Cams, Joe's Sherrod Mustang puts out an impressive 888.4rwhp and 879.7rwtq.

Joe had a few words of his own regarding himself:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My name is Joe Roberts (SherrodMustang) and I'am 32 years old and live in Montgomery, Alabama. I am married (Jenna) and work for the Montgomery Police Department for five years now. Not something I have spoke about a lot on the forum or share with everybody on here. Proud to serve under the thin blue line and really enjoy the work that I do everyday.. mostly.. lol.

It has its days!

My hobbies have all ways been cars. Every since I became old enough to drive and have my own money in my hands.. I have customized cars. I have owned numerous cars, trucks and jeeps over the years and really enjoyed everyone of them in there own way.

Some of my jeeps.





My current car I purchased in 2009 as a conversion from Sherrod. It is a 2008 Ford Mustang GT with tons of aftermarket parts on it as it stands. It didnt start out that way when I picked up from a local used car lot. When I bought it the car had no more than some rims, ground effects and a shaker cold air intake on it. It has came along way since then and had many different roles over the years. From my daily driver to the garage queen it is now.. LOL

I truely love the car and not sure if I will every sell it or get rid of it at this point. To much of my time, sweat and blood have been poured into the car....Not to forget money! It has really grown to be a part of me and who I am at this point...

Thanks S197FORUM.com

Congrats on a build well-done!

How the hell did you wind up with a negative correction factor?? Does that mean they took away HP from your final numbers? Are you below sea level? Either way, it's cool as hell.
