2017 June Car of the Month

Brain's Highway Cruizer

This is my 2014 Mustang GT Premium w/Track Pack and Roush Axle Back Exhaust. She is called "The Highway Cruizer" because we've made plenty of highway trips to the east coast. I love driving her and after even the longest days at work, there's nothing more rewarding than a cruise along any open road. I'm hoping later this summer, we will get to take the ultimate cruise to Southern California and visit with some relatives.

2017 May Car of the Month

Frank's Red Rocket

The car was originally owned by my daughter who was married to a Ford dealer in Laramie, WY. (She's still married to the same guy but he's no longer a Ford dealer!) So, I am the second owner of this beauty and took delivery just 10 days before the 50th anniversary Pony Drive Across America from Mustang, OK to Las Vegas International Speedway in April 2014. That trip was a good opportunity to evaluate my new purchase and I discovered a good road car with a forgiving shifter and decent gas mileage (when my right foot behaves!). I've put 12K miles on the car since I acquired it and try to drive it weekly, with the top down, of course! "Red Rocket" will be journeying to Overland Park, KS (Kansas City) for the 2017 MCA Grand National show in August. Join us!

2016 January Car of the Month

Kelly's 1966 Fastback

Hello! My name is Kelly Hattori, and my 1966 fastback is the CotM. Boy does this car have a history… one that’s hard to encapsulate in a short readable document, but I’ll give it my best shot.
Meet Calamity Jane. This car has been a major fixture in my life since 2010, when I bought her as a clueless 19-year-old. I had set my heart on building a perfect vintage daily driver – despite not even knowing how to change a tire at the time – and Jane was the perfect starting point. Originally an I6 auto car with no options, a previous owner had long ago put in a hopped-up 289 V8 and a 4 speed with a 9” 3.23 rear. The body was more or less good (barring the passenger side floor pan, which it turned out wasn’t actually welded to the frame), the paint was great at 20 feet, and she ran and drove beautifully. This car came with no previous known history, a sad state of affairs which I quickly remedied.
I took this car and spent three years making it my own. The goal was to build a car that looked like a “dressed up” stock car with a very vintage feel but some stealth modifications for improved drivability. I added power disc brakes, a power rack and pinion, A/C, Fox Body Mustang seats (recovered to look like ’66 seats), 3-point seatbelts, fuel injection, better charging and wiring, subframe connectors, and a whole host of other smaller goodies. My “minor project car” turned into a full-blown restoration obsession. Somewhere along the line I befriended a master bodyman and painter, who fixed some minor rust issues and put on a show-quality paint job. I went from a know-nothing nobody to a genuine car enthusiast and hot rodder because of this car.
I declared the car “finished” on April 22, 2013. Three days later, I was rear-ended by a distracted driver going 40 mph faster than I was. Jane took care of me and I walked away without a single bruise. But she was in ruins. My perfect, beautiful car… destroyed. It was the worst day of my life. But I’m not one to let things sit, so I set about saving Jane. Insurance came through, my friend put Jane back in his shop, and on December 23rd she rolled out looking better than new.
I spent another 4 months going through a bunch of other minor wreck-related issues that needed to be remedied (for example, the entire rear of the interior had shattered). I put her back on the road for the first time at 1AM the night before traveling to the Mustang 50th Anniversary in Charlotte, NC – almost a year exactly after the wreck. We had a ball at the 50th! But I wasn’t quite satisfied with our “comeback of the year”, as it had been dubbed.
So that summer, I took a road trip. A really long road trip. A two-month-long, 10,000+ mile road trip that took me from one end of the US to the other. It turns out that camping out of a 1966 Mustang fastback is more fun than anything I could possibly even imagine. Jane was perfect the whole way round the country and I have countless photos of her against the best backdrops this country has to offer.
Since then I’ve moved a few times, and Jane always comes with me as my faithful road trip monster and daily driver. I rebuilt the engine this past December so it’s ready for a few more laps around the United States. This year, I’ll be headed up to Colorado for a couple of weeks in June and to Reno for Hot August Nights in August! Can’t wait.
