If you own a Mustang, how long have you owned your ride?: 

Currently, the only Ford I have is a ’57 Thunderbird my dad bought as a junior in high school in 1965.

What do you do for a living?: 

I work full time with the Oklahoma National Guard and hold the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.  I am the State Family Program Director, which means I run all the family support operations, from our Child and Youth program to Casualty Operations and Military Funeral Honors, among many others.  I am also a Judge Advocate, which simply means a military lawyer.

I have also written a book, soon to be released by McFarland Publishing, called The Age of the Musclecar, which is a history of the muscle car era from 1964-1972.

If you’ve made improvements to your classic car or restored it, what work have you done?: I own a 1966 GTO that I restored back in 1999 and is currently undergoing a fresh repaint.

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

I am also in the middle of a complete restoration of a 1969 Road Runner, which is a story in itself, as it has been in paint jail since 2012.
