    Occupation:
    Retired trouble maker
    Car:
    '92 Mustang 5.0 LX convertible
    My Rides:
    white/white w/red int. 5.0 TFS heads, intake & cam, BBK 70mm TB. Pro-M 76mm Mass air meter, 24# injectors, 255 LPH fuel pump, stainless shorty headers, MAC 2-1/2" exhust, Art Carr AOD w/373 gears. Occasionally a 150 hit of Nitrous. All suspension bushing changed to neoprene with Steeda springs which lowered the LX 1-1/2", Summit Racing rear control arms w/anti roll bar and HD sway bars. After all the performance work I added a Cervini's twin scoop hood and SLN body on 16' pony wheels.
    I'm a 68 year old Retired Police Detective. My first time behind the wheel was age 6 when uncle Harold let me sit on his lap and steer his '40 Ford. That was the start of my love of automobiles. At age 11 my Dad taught me how to drive his '53 Willy's Jeep wagon, a stick shift at that. I took my Drivers Test in a buddy's '57 Chevy 2 dr. Hard Top. WOW!. In the late fifties we were all driving '49,'50 & '51 Ford's and Mercury's except Don in his '57 Chevy. When I got out of the Army 82nd Airborne at fort Bragg in 1964 I owned a '58 Belair 4dr HT. It was a 283ci auto w/ps & air nothing special but a nice ride all the same. Next came a 1960 Pontiac convertible 389 ci. I had it punched out and stroked to a 401ci, it weighted 5K # but ran like a stripped ass ape. The poncho was traded in on a new "66 Mercury Comet Cyclone GT 390 four speed with no frills just fast and fun. All the GM owners thought Fords were soft until they came upon that Maroon Cyclone. It didn't stay stock for long when I started adding speed gear. I was still driving the Comet when I joined the Clayton, MO. Police Department in 1967. In 1970 I trade in the Comet for a Ford Torino GT 351ci Windsor. When the gas shortage hit I did the unthinkable, I sold the Torino and bought a VW square back, oh woe is me. Moving on, after decades of family cars, trucks and boats I finally retired and decided it was " hot rod time" so I sold an Explorer and bought my '92 5.0 LX convertible in 2003. The rest of the story involves money, parts and a lot of time in my shop I am now that old man in the fast car I often envied when I was young. **********HOTRODS FOR EVER*****************
