They say that three times is the charm. Well in Rob Staples’ case maybe that number should be four. Four swings, 3 misses – to find the ideal Classic Mustang. But word on the street has it that Rob is a tenacious guy, and his fourth time at the plate landed him virtually in LA – and a 2+2 Fastback 1965 A code for $35K. A true beauty –  I am excited to chat with Rob today and if you are in the market for your first Classic Mustang or simply want to hear the lesson learned from this diligent guy, welcome to Ford Mustang The Early Years Podcast
