My Garage

1965 Mustang Fastback / 289 4 speed +

 Well, my vehicle is a 1965 Mustang Fastback. I bought it about four years ago when I turned fifteen. The previous owner simply didn't have the time to restore it, and with good reason, the vehicle had been sitting for a couple decades and needed serious work. My father and I did the majority of the work, except for the finishing bodywork and paint. It's still a work in progress (and always will be), but I've put GT350 side stripes and various other modifications in order to turn into a Shelby. In the future I hope to do some engine work, aluminum heads, cam, roller rockers, ect. Currently, the Stang has a 289 bored .030 over, with a demon carb and Edlebrock manifold. It has the original toploader four speed, which is a pleasure to hammer and can take loads of abuse as long as I'm willing to change the clutch, which I seem to do often. I love and cherish the Mustang and I am so thankful to have been able to have the privilege of restoring it. The friends and experiences I have had have been invaluable, and I feel I am truly blessed to be a part of this wonderful hobby. I am a gear head for life.
 
P.S.- If your ever out in the Phoenix area, your more than welcome to stop by and burn some rubber.
