Episode Notes

Ford Mustang, The Early Years Podcast — Guest Interview Application

Do you own an early year Mustang?: yes

Please upload a favorite pic of your Mustang or a classic car you drive now or have owned in the past.: https://cdn.filestackcontent.com/WowLJbzSGyP8mK9CbzWy?all carstogther.jpg?image/jpeg

What do you do for a living and is it related to classic cars or Mustangs?: 

I am the owner of Tier One Technology Partners in Maryland.  We help businesses navigate technology and provide support, project management, security and advisory services.  I really think there is a connection between computers and older cars.  Especially in the 90’s as you could easily by parts to “soup up” your computer and then test it for performance increases.  I was into cars before computers and believe it is why I connected so easily at first.

Is there anything specific you would like to share on the show? 

Just my passion for the hobby and how many great people and places it has introduced me to.  The two Hertz rentals when shown together are pretty special.

If you own a Mustang or classic car, have you named your car? If so, what is his/her name?: 

I talk to them but they don’t have specific names

How long have you owned your classic ride?: 

1968 J-Code Convertible – First Car – Bought March 13, 1974.  1966 Shelby GT350H – 33 Years.  1969 Shelby GT350 – 30 Years

If you’ve made improvements to your classic car or restored it, what work have you done?: 

Convertible restored in 2016 

1966 Shelby restored in 2018

Do you work on your classic cars yourself or do you have a mechanic or shop do the work? Explain please: 

I do all light mechanical myself.  Electrical, suspension, top end motor work.  Heavier stuff I have a specific person I take the cars to.   Getting my tilt away steering in my 1969 Shelby working was something I was especially happy with.  Really cool and desirable feature!

What plans do you have for improvements/restoration/modification of your classic car?: 

My cars are pretty much done – now I have to keep them nice.  From the moment you restore them they begin deteriorating again  🙁
