Do you own a Classic Car?
My old `39 has been called a few things through the years (I have owned it for almost 40), but no “official” name.
Are you a supplier of products to Mustang and Classic Car enthusiasts?:
Have you ever made improvements to your classic car or restored it?
I first built my `39 Ford Deluxe in 1984, actually used a few Mustang parts (steering box, column, and rear axle). It was the only car I owned for a while, drove it every day. After 30 years and over 180,000 miles, I rebuilt it a few years ago. Basically rebuilt the car from the ground up but we replicated the paint job that we first did in 1984. Kept the car looking the same, but it’s a much better build this time around.
What plans do you have for improvements/restoration/modification of your classic car?
Plans now are to continue to drive and enjoy it. We have already driven it on Vintage Air Road Tours to Biloxi, Mississippi and Lake Havasu, Arizona. This year’s Tour is going to Nashville, Tennessee for the Triple Crown event.
