In our last Newsletter, I wrote about our newest project here at Mustangs Plus, the
Monster Ronster. Since then, Ive had a lot of responses from people who have
essentially said, "Dont build another show car like the original Ronster, Build
one to drive!"
Well, were glad to hear you
all say that. The intent of the Monster Ronster has always been to build it so that we can
take our customers for rides in it. But with a twist. We are planning to build it so that
it will pass tech at the local Open Track events! That way, we can get it out on the race
track and show our friends and customers what it will do! And, of course, driving it at
these events will be a blast for us, too!
As we go to press on
January 3rd, 2002, the top is gone (it was sent to another company to develop a new
insulation package for Mustang Coupes) and the basic body is almost ready to go to the
paint shop. I say almost, because we are still acquiring parts.
How would you feel about
a nice set of 3" wide fender flares all the way around it? Or a fiberglass deck lid
with a new, higher profile rear spoiler molded in? Maybe a new, lower nose section to
replace the front racing apron? These are just some of the many interesting suggestions we
have received from Mustang enthusiasts... some really great stuff!
If youve e-mailed
and I havent responded to you, its because Im also getting a lot of
questions asked, and I just dont have the time to e-mail everybody back. But keep
them coming! Because of the many e-mails weve received, weve made several
changes in our thinking about the Monster Ronster! So e-mail away! We really do want your
input into the project.
Ill try to have some better pictures in the March issue so be
sure to keep an eye out for it! Thanks for stopping by - Ron

SEE THE MONSTER
Darn that Anthony! He caught me daydreaming of driving the Monster Ronster around Sears
Point at Mini -Nats!
In order to take it onto
the track and give passengers a ride, it will need to be equipped with a roll bar. I
haven't decided if this will be the right one!
Even though the floor
pains were in pretty good shape, we welded on new ones over the old ones for more
The windshield posts were
trimmed to match the metal frame. It's starting to take shape, but it'll take quite some
effort to make the Monster Ronster a real road warrior!
