It was 1964, and the average cost of a house was $13,600, average income $6,450, gas was $.31/gallon, bread was $.21/loaf, and … oh yeah, the Mustang was born.  It was an exciting time in my life.  I was a freshman in high school, had just turned 16, and we all know what that means.  I can drive!!!

I’ve always been a car nut and the Mustang helped foster my love for cars.  My father was a Ford guy (like many of us I suspect), so naturally I became a Ford guy too.  I’ve owned many Ford cars and trucks over the years … 1966 Galaxie Convertible, 67 Galaxie, 72 Torino, 1969 Galaxie.  My very first car was a 1964 Ford Custom 6-cylinder, 3-speed.  As you can imagine, this was a real powerhouse!!!

I have to mention that I did own one Chevy in my life, a 1967 Chevelle SS.  Unfortunately (or fortunately), it was stolen right out of my driveway.  I took that as a sign that I wasn’t meant to own a Chevy.

My first Mustang was a 1965 Fastback, which many of you have seen.  I have always had a special love for Shelby’s, and had a lot of fun making this car into a Shelby clone.  I also had a Red 1987 5.0, a very fun car to drive and a great road-race car.  Additionally, two 1998 Stangs, a blue coupe and my current black GT.

Some of you know that I also love the car racing hobby, with my favorite type being road racing.  In the seventies, I was involved with the S.C.C.A. and raced Fiat and MG sport cars.  I’m not too active in racing these days, but still enjoy ‘track time’ whenever the opportunity arises.

I have been a member of LEMOC since 1996, and have held various positions in the club – President, V.P., Treasurer, and Show Chairman.  It’s been a great experience and I have made some wonderful friends.  I look forward to many more years of fun and fellowship with my LEMOC friends.
