Not only does he collect and restore classic Mustangs he provides pre-purchase inspection for private and auction sales. Anything involving Mustangs, he’s into it.

Ford Mustang, The Early Years Podcast — Guest Interview Application
Do you own an early year Mustang?: yes
What do you do for a living and is it related to classic cars or Mustangs?:
I collect and restore classic Mustangs mostly 65 to 70 but some later models too. I do consulting and pre- purchase inspections and auction support. I produce a Youtube channel MustangConnection1( closing in on 30k subs with over 12Mil views) that covers the restoration and modifications. We also do extensive car show coverage, auction coverage, owner interviews, inspections and pretty much everything revolving around the Ford Mustang. Our website http://www.MustangConnection.com is the hub for all of our social media activity and links.
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? : Great question, I am open to any or all of the above. Maybe what to look for when buying your first classic Mustang, what to ask, what to inspect, what to pay. Pitfalls of the process, etc.
Vintage Mustangs as an investment, where the overall market is currently, where is it going given the trend for Baby boomers aging out.
If you own a Mustang or classic car, have you named your car?
I have never named them
How long have you owned your classic ride?:
I have owned numerous classics, currently there are 9 in the stable. The longest for about 10 years
If you’ve made improvements to your classic car or restored it, what work have you done?: Numerous and yes most by me and many documented on our channel. Here is good example.
Do you work on your classic cars yourself or do you have a mechanic or shop do the work?
Yes, and have some subcontractors for things like engines, etc that I use to complete builds. But mostly myself.
What plans do you have for improvements/restoration/modification of your classic car?:
Always working on the next one like Project Mut, a left for dead 1967 Coupe that no one wanted. It is being resurrected and brought back to life after being dead for over 30 years.
