AmericanMuscle & Friends Raise $9,000+ for Charity

From the beginning the American Muscle Car Show was set to be more than just a show. Company founders, backed by enthusiastic employees, pushed to give something back to the men and women who have sacrificed so much for our freedom. The initial goal was to raise $5,000 to Homes for Our Troops, a charity that buys or builds homes for disabled veterans. After two previous donations, the team at AM decided to recruit its customers, vendors, families and friends to join the cause and give to this noble charity at the show.

With American Muscle pledging to donate 100 percent of all show proceeds, the effort was fueled by the AM Girls selling raffle tickets for some seriously sweet parts donated by many top Mustang performance brands like SCT, Roush, Eibach, dba, Hawk, Pypes Exhaust, BBK, Maximum Motorsports, aFe, MagnaFlow, Motive, Edelbrock, PA Performance, H&R Springs and more. Also adding to that total were t-Shirt and food sales, plus personal contributions from AM employees.

At the end of the day, with all donations counted, American Muscle wrote a check for $8015 to Homes for our Troops. Joining American Muscle in supporting this great cause, the members of the Garden State Region Mustang Club voted unanimously to give a generous donation of $850 to the charity. Another donation of $500 was received from an anonymous American Muscle supplier bringing the total joint donation to $9,365.

Accepting on behalf of the charity were Frank and Karen McKee of Springfield, PA. After receiving the very large check, Mr. McKee expressed sincere appreciation saying he was humbled by the donation. Personally, I think we’re more humbled by our troops.

    "How to Maintain Your Car advice from a Driving School

    In an age of perpetual consumerism, the prevailing societal belief is that newer is better. With unemployment numbers rising and credit becoming more expensive, we need to find ways to save. With so much emphasis on car buying, it would be wise to take the time to properly learn how to maintain your car. Maintaining your vehicle will allow you to drive it longer, keep it safer and possibly sell it for a higher price than you would have without maintenance.

    There are six areas of your car that need constant attention. They are tires, windows, fluids, brakes, oil and your car interior. By referring to the owner’s manual, you can understand how to properly maintain these areas of your vehicle"
