Famous horses have been featured in works of art for since the dawn of time, in the days of old a prize stallion would be immortalized in oil and the canvas hung proudly above its owners mantle for all to admire. Today your prize pony can also be immortalized and hung for admiration with an original print from the ‘Automotive Michelangelo’ himself, Mr Danny Whitfield. For a limited time with the purchase of a new Ford Mustang from Raceway Ford in Riverside, CA, you will receive a framed print signed by the artist of your new car purchased for you by our own Mustang Man, Mike theCarGuy. Imagine having your co-workers admiration of your new Mustang when they see it hanging on your office wall or your friends and family being able to see your prized stallion as it hangs prominently on a wall in your home! The remaining 2014 Mustangs are moving briskly so time is critical, if you have your sights on a new Pony the time is now, and when you buy your new car you will get one to hang on the wall too!
About the Artist:
From the DannyWhitfield.com website…
“Danny Whitfield was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, “Auto Capital of the World, He brought his vision of art and cars to the fore front and has been the key artist in making automotive art a respected form in the industry. Whitfield has a magical ability to bring out the beauty of an automobile and expression vividly onto canvas. He has the ability to paint and draw and does many forms of art from scenic, architectural, to portrait images. However his affinity and love for automobile is his first love. Ever since he was five years old he’s been drawing cars. This is his passion! After attending Center of Creative College in Detroit and Macomb County College in Warren Michigan, He began his career working for the Ford Motor Company, and many other Auto motive design firms as an Artist, Stylist, Designer and Illustrator. Whitfield gained much experience and enjoyed his time greatly working in the industry, yet something inside was driving him in a different direction. Whitfield enjoyed most creating his own fine art pieces. During a time when automotive art was more popular at car shows Whitfield began presenting pieces in this forum to enthusiasts at these venues. This was not an easy task as most were somewhat selective on who they accept into their close nit groups. Plus the fact many local galleries didn’t seem to accept cars as art nor were not happy to see Whitfield achieve success. Many enthusiasts wanted to see his work but were denied that privilege based on the “Good old boy” networks. This had little effect on him as he was determined to share his love for automobile art with the world. With every obstacle placed before him he overcame them all and continued his journey.
As time moved on Whitfield established his business officially and with the age of technology he has now been able to move from art in the galleries into a much broader audience. With the birth of the Internet and social networks such as Facebook- Twitter and so on, Whitfield exploded onto the scene. No longer held down by the restrictive galleries and other businesses he moved on to create “The Automotive Art of Danny Whitfield” With the help of the networks and a wide spread audience Whitfield has become a cult phenomenon in the auto world. He art has gone worldwide and is known throughout the world. Whitfield offers something to the auto enthusiast that makes a deep inner connection to the soul. When you take the owner’s automobile who spent many hours on modifying, customizing, they have created a very special masterpiece. Whitfield takes that masterpiece and captures it in still life. Every auto collector is highly satisfied with the outcome. Like a memory of a newborn baby in still photos so does Whitfield captures the car with his art.”

With the 662 horsepower produced by its hand built, supercharged 5.8L engine the Shelby GT500 is the most powerful V8 powered vehicle on the planet, and you have the chance to own one… When the editors of AutoBlog.com drove the Cobra the simply stated that is was “Stupid, stinking, earth shatteringly fast” and there is no way to deny that! Few vehicles on the road, anywhere, can move the soul like a Shelby Mustang, this gorgeous 2013 was purchased by a collector and driven once, from Utah to his garage where it has been lovingly cared for as evidenced by the mere 727 miles on the odometer! Its Tremec 6-Speed racing trans only shifted a handful of times and the tires have NEVER been smoked. Of course having all that power on tap would be terrifying without a way to bring it all safely to a stop and to make sure it can do just that there huge 14” vented front discs up front with Brembo SIX piston calipers and 13.8 vented discs grabbing tight at the rear. The Ford SVT crew has given the Cobra all the race experience available in its suspension tuning to make this Mustang a track dominator with Toresn rear differential, cock pit adjustable Bilstein electronic dampers at each corner and 19” (front) and 20” (rear) exclusive forged aluminum wheels with Z rated tires. Factory equipped launch control ensures smooth and consistent starts every time with just the right amount of wheels spin for maximum traction and four, driver selectable performance settings. Road and Track said the GT500 is “totally at home on a road course yet remarkably civil in everyday situations” and that’s due in part to the incredibly comfortable yet tight holding leather seating and the powerful Shaker sound system although if truth be told we prefer the grumble if it tunes exhaust as our driving music! With the Mustang production ended and the plants gearing up for the all-new 2015 we know this is one of the last examples of this truly amazing car and there will not be a high performance version of the new Pony for at least the first two model years so, if you are serious about owning one of these rod going beast you NEED to contact us TODAY! Serious inquiries only please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Recently the fine folks at Road and Track wrote a piece about why Ford should take the new 2015 Mustang to Le Mans and we could not agree MORE! To truly celebrate the Mustangs 50th Anniversary and its availability in Europe for the first time Ford Racing should build a Mustang race car to take back to the legendary race at Le Mans! Not since 1997 has the thunder of a Ford V8 been heard on the most famous course in Europe although the Blue Oval has MUCH history there. Long ago Mr Carroll Shelby and his Daytona Coupes tested at Riverside International Raceway just a mile from our present day location here at Raceway Ford. He took his powerful Ford racers over to France and started a run of victories for Ford in Europe’s race that continued throughout the entire 60’s! Auto enthusiasts all across the planet look forward to the world famous 24 Hours of Le Mans and there has never been a better time to go back than now, and never a better car to do it with than the all-new Mustang! Our man Mike theCarGuy even started an online petition to let Ford know how many fans want to hear the thunder of a Ford V8 once again in France! You can sign it HERE:
