About MShutts’s Garage

 

About me and my passion for cars

I first fell in love with Mustangs before I even knew what a Mustang was. I was seven or eight years old and when my family would travel into Beatrice, NE we'd see this body shop that had a row of '70 Mach 1's parked next to it. I didn't know what a Mustang was but I knew that I wanted a Mach 1.

I got my Uncle's '70 Mustang when I was 17. It had been parked next to a barn for 22 years and had flood water get into it a couple times. It was a mess. I drug it out of the sunk in holes that it settled into and my Dad and had it running again later the same day. I spent my whole summer working on the car getting it cleaned up and learning a little about bodywork, mechanicals, the importance of good brakes, and wiring. It was a time I'll always look back and smile about. My Dad and I working on it together is one reason why I wish I still had that car around.

My first car

My first car was a '76 Delta 88, two door with a 455 ci 4 barrel that a little old lady drove before me.

My dream car

1970 Mustang Mach 1, 428 Cobra Jet, 4 speed, Graber Orange, Twister Edition. I've found one that the original owner has sitting out under a lean-to shed. It is in fantastic condition. Spoke with him a couple times over the years and he is starting to think about selling it but not quite there.

Thanks Michael. K&R did a really nice job on my valve covers. Maybe Ford left them ugly so they could sell after market parts.

My '69 Mustang "Layla" is on the road now. Licensed, insured and all legal like. I'm taking her out to the Norris High School Show this weekend for a road test. She really isn't a show car as I did everything on it. The paint isn't professional and it...
