This is my track / drift / tow vehicle. Back in the summer of 2001 at the age of 17, my father passed this car on to me. When I got it, it had a crate 95 Mustang GT 5.0L HO motor swapped into it and full police suspension. After 7 years it's now the beast of my own creation. One of the coolest facts about this car is that since 1991, my Father and I are the only ones to wrench on this car. I used to participate in HPDE events with this car, but at the moment is now the tow vehicle. But I still participate in drift events to keep the old girl happy.

This really is one of my favorite cars here. The only thing that could make it ANY sweeter is a wagon body with faded wood grain.
