2005 Steeda Mustang Street Concept Q

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 2, 2004 – A new era in Ford Mustang’s 40-year performance history begins in Las Vegas at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show, Nov. 2-5, with the reveal of 15 all-new 2005 Mustangs honed by the industry’s leading high-performance tuners and specialty manufacturers.

In fact, the 2005 Mustang was recognized by SEMA as the most accessory friendly new vehicle at last week’s California International Auto Show in Anaheim, Calif., where it captured the first of three SEMA Vehicle Design Awards.


Dario Orlando – Steeda Autosports was founded in 1988 when Dario Orlando decided to put his (then) 15 years experience repairing and racing cars to work turning the Mustang into a world-class sports car. Today, Florida-based Steeda’s business spans the full spectrum of Ford vehicle performance upgrades, from professional and amateur racing to new turnkey vehicle packages.

An all-American, road hungry performance machine, the Ford Mustang by Steeda Autosports combines the best attributes of the 2005 Mustang with competition tempered, Steeda-engineered performance enhancements. The people at Steeda call this number the Screamin Yellow Q, for when you turn the key and press the pedal to the floor, a primal scream is the only sound this Mustang knows how to make.
