About me and my passion for cars
I've owned and/or restored 7 Mustangs, a '54 Dodge M37, a '65 Kaiser-Jeep M543 (18 ton recovery vehicle), 05 Mustang GT (#905 built of the new generation), 80 Camaro (Bradley's, my son), a 1973 Satellite Sebring Plus, and a '06 Ford F-150 that is 1 of 250 special limited edition made that year (Red w/ grey interior) Currently investigatingthe addition of either an SSP Mustang or B4C Camaro either restored as original with all correct equipment and markings or to restore to original.
I have owned muscle cars since my 1st car, they always have A/C (muscle? yeah ! Uncomfortable? No way !).
I love to work on and see the improvements as they happen. Sometimes I get impatient and try to do too much @ one time, but am much better now than I was.
I like historical accuracy and restoration, and am not into restomods and rods. I also am an avid Coke collector and WWII enthusiast (militaria). Retired with a past in education and law enforcement, now business manager for a family company in business since 1945.
My son and family recently bought a home in Aberdeen, MS that is over 100 years old and on the National Register of Historic Places. He is a grad student @ MSU and his wife works in the library on campus. Grandson almost 5 and a grand daughter due in July. Wife? A librarian in the local school system about 3 years from retirement.
My first car
was a 1968 Mustang, Meadowlark Yellow with Black Vinyl Top, Black interior, and a 3 speed.
Car I wish I still had
the 1973 Satellite Sebring Plus, black with black interior, red pin-stripe, auto, 440 mag with 6 pk, one of the most awesome cars I've ever driven, and I ordered it new.
