Responses to Show’s Preliminary Q&A

WHAT DO YOU DO FOR A LIVING AND IS IT RELATED TO CLASSIC CARS OR MUSTANGS?

I am a freelance designer, writer and photographer for not only Mustang books, but hobby “how-to” books on scale modeling. I also do graphic design and book design. A few of my props have appeared on popular TV shows.

IS THERE ANYTHING SPECIFIC YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE ON THE SHOW? IF YOU ARE IN THE CLASSIC CAR BUSINESS (SELLING, REPAIRING, RESTORING, PRODUCTS OR SERVICES PROVIDED TO OWNERS) WHAT CAN WE PROMOTE ON THE SHOW TO OUR COMMUNITY OF MUSTANG OWNERS?

I would like to talk about the Mustang owner experience, not only about driving (myself, 400,000 miles), but how to be resourceful for a long-term ownership of the car. The Mustang evokes great pride and passion, and that’s what I like to talk about.

IF YOU OWN A MUSTANG OR CLASSIC CAR, HAVE YOU NAMED YOUR CAR? IF SO, WHAT IS HIS/HER NAME?

I owned my (Maroon) GT/California Special between April 1974 and May 2010. I put 400,000 miles on it.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU OWNED YOUR CLASSIC RIDE?

April 1974, bought for $1,500….and sold in 2010 to pay for the printing of my GT/CS Recognition Guide book

IF YOU’VE MADE IMPROVEMENTS TO YOUR CLASSIC CAR OR RESTORED IT, WHAT WORK HAVE YOU DONE?

Mostly upkeep; I changed the engine twice, and transmission once. The addition of a Cobra intake and Holly 600 did wonders!!

DO YOU WORK ON YOUR CLASSIC CARS YOURSELF OR DO YOU HAVE A MECHANIC OR SHOP DO THE WORK? EXPLAIN PLEASE

When I owned it, I did all my work myself, except for brakes, etc.

WHAT PLANS DO YOU HAVE FOR IMPROVEMENTS/RESTORATION/MODIFICATION OF YOUR CLASSIC CAR?

I would have totally restored my GT/CS, but I chose to spend my money on telling the GT/CS story in my books (1988, 2011).
