What do you do for a living?:
I am Department Head for the Building and Construction and Technologies Department at Pima Community College in Tucson AZ.
If you own a Mustang or classic car, have you named your car? If so, what is his/her name?:
Just She/Her for now
If you’ve made improvements to your classic car or restored it, what work have you done?:
I am comfortable with making repairs but I lack the equipment. I have a friend who has a nice garage set up at his house. So far, I installed new front wheel cylinders as one was seized. New HEI distributor. New tires, New turn signal switch and steering wheel. I am not happy with the braking so after listening to “The Doc” on your show I ordered a disc brake conversion kit and hope to install it this weekend. Mostly I just wash it and drive around waving at people!
What plans do you have for improvements/restoration/modification of your classic car?:
I enjoy driving the old girl so I want it to feel like an old car. I won’t do too many modern upgrades that will take too much of the feel away. Right now it feels like I am driving a time capsule and I want it to stay that way. The convertible top is automatic and does not work that well. this is on the back burner since my goal is to never put the top except in case of emergencies. The same is true with the heating and air conditioning. Neither works but my goal is to never need them.
