Aston Who: 1999 Ford Mustang Custom

Aston Martin was founded in 1913 by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford in a workshop when they hacked up a 1908 Isotta-Fraschini to go racing.  So the idea of hacking up another car to create an Aston Martin has some kind of precedent and might end up being a good thing.  Key word might. Find this 1999 Ford Mustang Custom offered for $3,500 near Miami, Florida via craigslist.

My mother once told me that I shouldn't say anything if I can't say anything nice.  Well...ummm...yeah....those are some big rims. Oddly enough, the panel fit doesn't look that bad and those custom Aston Martin pieces (aside from broken driver's headlight) seem well stapled/hot-glued/scotch-taped on.

See a better way to...umm...yeah....


  1. for point of reference, in case anybody thinks anybody is fooling anybody...

  2. I don't have any problem with this at all, but those wheels ruin it. Not sure what lug pattern Aston wheels are? I am sure this car has the same craptastic interior from the stang.

  3. Hey look! I wash the car! Why? Just why?

  4. Must be the Deluxe Kar Kit.......meehhh

  6. I actually kind of want this. Driving down the street, you see a bunch of heads turn and then a bunch of eyes roll. The automotive version of a dad joke.

  7. Do those wheels come with any rubber mounted?

  8. Looks like they dropped 2k off the price since October when Jalopnik did a nice price or crackpipe on it. It could be so much worse, maybe with different rims it would be less....awful?


  9. It's an Aston Kutcher

  10. I've seen far worse..... Looks good from far, but it's far from good.
