CARS.COM — The 2017 Specialty Equipment Market Association Show has come and gone, but we were on hand to take in the sights and fight the crowds. Along with the Best in Show-winning 2018 Kia Stinger, we saw Dodge's Mopar Hellcrate engine kit, some cool Camaros — and a whole mess o' Ford Mustangs.

There were a variety of Mustangs on display taking advantage of Ford's refresh of the 2018 model. Tuning companies from all over took a shot at making the new 'Stang special, and it's hard to say that any didn't succeed.

Convertibles and coupes were showcased, but the icing on the cake wasn't even a 2018 model. Instead, it was the 1965 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 by The Original Venice Crew. OVC takes a 1965 Mustang and reconditions and rebuilds it to turn a classic muscle car into a street-legal track star. Imagine Singer Vehicle Design, but for a Mustang, and you're on the right track. Unfortunately, that comparison applies to pricing as well: MSRP starts at $250,000.

Of the modern cars, our pick is the 2018 Roush 729 Concept. Painted a gorgeous Ford Grabber Green, the coupe is made even better-looking by its gold, 10-spoke, custom Vossen wheels. The meat of the transformation is under the hood, where a joint Roush/Ford Performance supercharger kit sits on the 5.0-liter V-8, helping the engine produce an estimated 700-plus horsepower.
