Hi there, everyone.
I been observing this forum for some time now. Seems the head honcho, on FordForums.com, has his act together. A well thought out place to allow the meeting of the minds for all FORD enthusiasts. Speaking of which I own a Ferrari red 68 Mustang coupe. It’s been modified here and there. Then I added a little “flash”. It’s a driven (not a trailer queen) show car, that up to now has won 41 awards in the last 27 months of our car show season. It will hold its’ own in either a judged or people’s choice car show. Needless to say I only get to drive it on the weekends, and rarely during the mid-week, to some of the car shows or show & shines. I really do look forward each time I can get behind the wheel of my Mustang and go. Especially, after being cooped up in my home office all week long.
Let’s see.....I always been a FORD person. I like the idea of taking a basic FORD car and turning it into something that will move and look good. Been doing this since I was 18. Got hooked into the street scene and cruisin’ since that age (I’m now 47). I always liked the idea of leaving brand “X” in a wake of dust. That’s not to say that I wasn’t in that dust once in a while. But, it was all in fun, and meeting people, and cruisin’, and being young and crazy. Now a days, I don’t really prove my need for speed in as much as my need to show. Getting old kind of....well, you know.
Most all the work, that is done to my Mustang, is done by me. I only say this, because I do enjoy turning a wrench. About the only thing I can’t do is the machine work, tranny rebuilds, and dialing in a set of rear end gears. So if I get an idea, and the funds, to add a little appeal to the senses, I’m the one who will do the work.
I’m not really new to the forums either. I’m registered on several other FORD or Mustang forums. Some FORD people may already know me from several of the other FORD or Mustang forums on the net. Hey, to those!
Btw I more or less know one member here who drives a very nice black Ranchero. I’ve seen the car last year in a FORD show in Tucson. Hey, DanB!
I’m also president of a local show car/truck club know as “THE GROUP”. Good, decent people who like the idea to show their classic collectibles in some of the local (greater Southwest) car/truck shows. Yes, some are brand “X”. Forgive me. But, it makes for either some great across the line help and (or) jabbing at one another. Fortunately, we are not so hung up about “a brand” or “a model” that we will, at lease, get out and show or cruise together. I think some of you know what I mean. But, I will remain to like FORDs better, since I go
with what I know.
Lets see.....is that all for now (hmmm, you know my age and my general location, so I don’t have to do that in the other threads - lol). Yup, that’s it for now!
