Trucks! host Kevin Tetz shows off ’66 resto-mod Mustang at Goodguys Autocross

The Goodguys AutoCross event took place in Nashville this weekend, and it was probably one of the most exciting parts of the weekend car show. It gives gearheads the chance to show off the performance of their muscle cars, trucks or rat rods in front of a group of their peers.

Trucks! host Kevin Tetz brought a personal project of his own, a 1966 Mustang that was part of a resto-mod he started on in 2002.

“I drove it 50 miles to the event, did three full out runs, improved on my times with each run, and met a ton of very cool people!”

He says the car got a lot of attention, and the only problem he had was with a cone that “got in the way.” Not bad at all for a ‘Stang that knocks out 600 hp.

“The car did great! It got a lot of attention and was a thrill to drive! … Thanks to everyone that came by to say hello and look at the car!”

Trucks! host Kevin Tetz shares his “Jaded” Mustang on PowerBlock!

You’ll be seeing green this weekend as Courtney features “Jaded,” the 1966 Mustang restored by our very own Kevin Tetz from Trucks! He got the car back in 2002, and for a while thought it was beyond rescue, but look at it now! It has an ’04 Cobra supercharged 4.6 engine with an Eaton blower that makes around 600 horsepower. Kevin wanted to marry modern performance and styling cues into his classic pony car and he did with great success! It has a custom wrap around bumper and custom Shelby-styled rear body panels. It sits on a Schwartz Performance full frame chassis and Forgeline Wheels with BFG rubber. Kevin enlisted the help of T.C. Penick of Bay One Customs as well as a lot of his friends to finish the car to make the SEMA show last year in the Heat Shield Products booth. It’s one gorgeous muscle car you need to see May 18 & 19 on PowerBlock.

Trucks! Host Kevin Tetz shows off Mustang in Heatshield Products booth at SEMA 2012

Trucks! host Kevin Tetz is at SEMA this year in the Heatshield Products booth showing off his custom Mustang he’s been working on for about three years.

Project Jaded, appropriately named for the custom green Kevin created, started out as a ’66 Mustang fastback. But as you can tell by the pictures, the font end is custom, grafted off of an ’05 Mustang, with a lot of custom sheet metal work and body modifications. It has an ’03 Cobra supercharged engine paired with a T56 manual transmission, and it sits on Forgeline CF3C wheels, coupled with BF Goodrich G-force tires.

Most importantly, Kevin used Heatshield Products on his custom Magnaflow exhaust.

Kevin likely chose Heatshield products because they are asbestos free, resist water, fungus, petroleum products and are non-combustible. Heatshield Products has been family owned and operated since 1985 and offer a line of diverse and cutting-edge products for heat protection and insulation needs for projects like Kevin’s below.
