About me and my passion for cars

I've always been a car guy. My Dad Raced dirt tracks int eh early 70's, and my uncle drag raced a Plymouth at Mn Dragways as well. He had some track records from what I've been told.

I bought my first car while I was still 14. It was a 2.3L Turbo Mustang and quickly l learned what too much boost does to pistons. So we swapped in a 302. It was quick, but back then I didn't know what quick was...

The one I miss the most was the '61 F250 4x4 that I had. That thing was a beast. Lots of great memories and got a best in class at the Show N Go at BIR in 1994. It was Purple Pearl with 4" pipes coming up through the bed behind the cab. At one point I had 38" SuperSwampers on it. I learned big tires and 4 wheel drum brakes wasn't such a great idea either.

Over the years I have owed. a 1979, 1980, 1981, 1983, 1984, 1985, 1990, and 2000 Mustangs. A 1972 Intl Scout. 1976, 1993 F-150's, 1961, 1980, 1993 F-250's I also had a 1988 Mk VII. Now I have the 84 stang, a 1999 Expedition, a 1999 Ranger and a 2008 Merc Grand Marquis. I'm sur ethere were others in there somewhere, but the memory is getting week.

I spent about 8 years working in Ford dealers as a tech, now I work for IDENTIFIX tech hotline.

My first car

1980 Mustang coupe. Started out as a 2.3LTurbo car. My Dad and I swapped in a 302 when I was 15.

Car I wish I still had

1980 Mustang. I also had a 1961 F-250 4x4 that I really wish I'd kept. I had a 292 Y-block in it with t-bird heads and a 3x2 intake. Cool old truck...
