Over the years I've been the proud owner of several Mustangs. My infatuation with the Mustang began at an early age in my hometown of Texarkana, Texas. The Arcadian Blue 1966 Mustang parked in my neighbor's yard was love at first sight. I eventually befriended my neighbor, who offered to take me for a ride. One ride turned into two, which turned into three, and so on. The rest, they say, is history. My dream is to someday own a 1966 Shelby Mustang GT350H. Of course, I'd happily settle for a 1965 GT350R any day.

On any given weekend, you'll likely find me out in my garage dreaming up new ways to modify my ride. If I'm not there, I'm probably out on the open road. Another favorite past time is attending Mustang shows.

As an avid Mustang enthusiast and automotive journalist, it's my goal to keep you up-to-date on all things Ford Mustang. If you own a Mustang, owned a Mustang, or are just stopping by, I want to help you make the most of your Mustang experience.
