    My Dream Mustang
    Sure there are some I would like to own, but the two I drive are dream cars in themselves.
    About Me
    Business owner in MN. Transplant from NW Ohio. Been a car guy most of my life. My Dad liked Fords. My first car was a 66 Mustang 289 Coupe. Found my Shelby in the early 80's. Did a lot of the restoration myself. What I didn't do personally I chose what parts were going on my car.
    Mustang Rides
    Purchased my 1968 Shelby GT 350 in 1982 in Ohio where I am from. Been a labor of love restoring and bringing it to where it has ended up. My latest project is to fix the engine. First start up this spring I heard knocks in the motor. Sounds like I am dealing with cracked piston skirts. The car is going to an engine builder next Monday.

    My latest addition is a 2017 Mustang GT. The prior Mustangs were ok but it was the S550 that I bought. This is a more awesome car than it should be. I wanted a summer car to enjoy and that is what I ordered from Ford. What can I say? AWESOME and a bit unbelievable. At the dealer I asked to talk to someone about some questions I had. When I picked it up the sales guy handed me the keys and thanked me. Didn't take long for me to have some questions. Anyway the lady got the Service Manager. He walked up to me and said are you the guy that bought that red race car? And that is a good description. DOHC, all aluminum engine and heads, 435 HP 400 TQ. Back when my 68 was new, this engine is something you might be able to find in a race car. I am aware that this 17 Mustang is a more powerful and better handling car than almost ANY car from that period of time, even the infamous GT 500 KR.
