Ford Mustang, The Early Years Podcast — Guest Interview Application
Do you own an early year Mustang?:
What do you do for a living and is it related to classic cars or Mustangs?:
I work for GTB, one of Ford’s marketing agencies, and I am the lead Senior Social Publisher for Ford Mustang social content, as well as the Social Content Manager for the GT500 Track Tour program. In my spare time, I also manage my own brand, “Mustang Marie” – a social media personality and influencer that educates and informs the community about Mustangs, with a specific focus on first generation.
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 love to share my story about how Mustang Marie started, and how that led to my job working with Ford.
If you own a Mustang or classic car, have you named your car? If so, what is his/her name?:
Yes. Her name is Raven.
How long have you owned your classic ride?:
Since October 19, 2019.
If you’ve made improvements to your classic car or restored it, what work have you done?:
She is a true survivor car, and I want her to stay that way. All I’ve really done is had her professionally detailed (a ceramic wax to protect her original paint, and a ceramic coat to protect the chrome), as well as repairs to two tears we found in the upholstery, and some other extremely minor fixes.
Do you work on your classic cars yourself or do you have a mechanic or shop do the work? Explain please:
Since Raven was bought through Legendary Motor Car, they fixed any minor issues they saw before the car was sent off to detailing. In the future, I plan on doing more work myself.
What plans do you have for improvements/restoration/modification of your classic car?:
Absolutely nothing. She’s a true survivor, so keeping her as original as possible is the ultimate goal. It would really just continue to ensure she’s running at her best.
