About Our Writers
At age 16 I was given my first Mustang by my parents, a 1995 V6 Mustang. I had grew up loving Mustangs so I was ecstatic to have this as my first car. The car lasted me until I was 18 years old until it was totaled in an accident. I’ve had two Mustangs since then with my most current one being a 2003 GT Convertible.
I started this website with the intention of helping other Mustang owners find information and as a way for Mustang owners to meet other enthusiasts all over the country. I have been blessed to have this website turn into what it is today, one of the largest Mustang Forums on the internet. I look forward to working to keep the site relevant and look forward to meeting more Mustang owners all over the country. Thanks for all the past good times and I look forward to all the future ones that will be had!
I have my dad to thank for my appreciation and fascination for beautiful, powerful machinery. As a pilot and skydiving instructor, he moved around a lot and my brother and I spent many summers living on various airports across the country. I spent a lot of time in hangars surrounded by airplanes, flying in them, watching my dad repair and work on them. It was his life and he absolutely loved it, and so did I. When I was younger, I didn’t know much about working on them, but I was always interested in watching and being a part of everything. I had my first jump out of a plane at the age of 10. At the age of 12, I remember my teary-eyed mother walking into my grandma’s house while I was absorbed in math homework and she had said that my dad’s plane had crashed while he was flying over Arizona. He survived for two weeks, but would have lived the rest of his life as a “vegetable”. Considering everything he loved and how he lived his life, it wouldn’t have been right to let him live like that any longer. I know this bio is about me, but giving a little history about him is giving a lot about me, and him and I are very much alike.
I remember picking out different cars that I wanted to own when I turned 16. None of my dream cars came through, but I did end up with a 1993 Mitsubishi Eclipse that started to fall apart as soon as I drove it off the lot. At that point, I didn’t care. I just wanted to get out of the house and I finally had wheels. Guess whose car made a piercing squeal interrupting high school football practice? Yep, That would be mine. I would have put some money into it if it were worth it, but I was too busy dumping money into it just to keep it alive. A blown head gasket later, she was finished. I won’t bore you with the many makes and models, wrecks and tickets, that I have had before my beloved Mustang.
Out of the many cars I have owned, I never really loved any of them. Sure, I loved other cars, just not any of mine. In high school, I attended many car meets even though my car had never met the requirements to be part of the club. I finally decided I wanted a car that I would actually “love” and I already knew what it was going to be. I picked up an Auto Trader and flipped to Ford and there she was. Being on a strict budget, I had to go with one of the cheaper choices. That night, I drove my manual 2001 Black V6 Mustang off of the lot. It had an exhaust set-up already, among a few other performance mods, and I fell in love with that rumble. From then on, I was hooked. Fast forward a few years and I am the proud owner of a 2004 Sonic Blue V6 that I had purchased bone stock and has a pretty list of mods. (I think, anyway). I can’t see myself not owning a Mustang now. Hopefully I’ll own my first 5.0 Fox soon and I have been keeping an eye out for that perfect Cobra. Now, that’s love.
Besides long walks on the beach and getting caught in the rain, I love art and cars. I love the design of things, the lines, the shapes, the colors, the visual impact of well designed things.
I have been married for the last 16 years to a wonderful girl who is now a Zumba fanatic. I have an awesome son who goes with me to car shows and we play lots of Pokemon and other things together.
I currently work in the oil and power generation fields, but dream of someday making a living in the automotive field. Not wrenching on stuff, but with the more artistic side of things. Who knows what tomorrow will bring. For now, I am loving all the cool opportunities I am experiencing with all the wonderful people that also love cars.
Growing up in North Alabama you can imagine that Mustangs were prevalent but I never really paid much attention to the car scene until around the age of seventeen. As most teenagers I purchased my first vehicle at 16, it was not a Mustang and was nothing really special. It did ignite a side of me that I had not thought about. I began to modify little things such as audio equipment. Not even two years later my first little car decided to start to give me many headaches so I finally decided to trade it in. At the time I had no real car loyalty or idea of what I wanted other than something sporty. I stumbled upon my first Mustang, a 1997 white with black interior Mustang V6. I modified my vehicle to the best of my abilities and spent countless hours online researching and posting on forums. After I graduated high school in 2000 I decided I wanted to purchase a newer Mustang.
I saved up and ordered a 2001 V6 in black with black interior and a 5 speed as I had always wanted. It was my first new car and I did everything I could to keep it like new. I enjoyed modifying it just as much as my previous Mustang. I had done quite a many modifications to it while going to college. During that time I became even more invested into modifying my vehicle and entering car shows with it. As the mod bug does… it takes hold and gets worse and worse. I spend quite a lot of time and money on my Mustang as it was my main hobby. During college I promised myself that when I graduated and found a good job I would purchase the car that I wanted ever since it was debuted in 2003. The 2003 Cobra was a car that as soon as I saw it I had to have it.
After I graduated I looked quite hard for a job and finally received an offer. Soon after I found my now 2003 Cobra and I couldn’t have been happier. It’s the car that I wanted ever since its introduction. I have owned a Mustang of some sort going on 12 years and I don’t plan to stop anytime soon. I hope to keep my current Mustang and add to my collection from here on out. I have worked hard to be part of the Mustang community either local or online. There are many great people out there and I wouldn’t own a Mustang today if it wasn’t for the best following out there for car enthusiasts to be a part of. I you are not taking part in the Mustang world you should as you are really missing out.
