What about you?

I love cars, I won’t say I’m a gear head, but I love all kinds of cars.

I LOVE my car.

She is pampered, my kids claimed she’s my favorite child and I spoil her.

She lives in the garage and is NEVER dirty.

I will work on my own. I have no issue getting dirty, in fact I trust very few people working or driving my girl.

Any stories regarding this project?

After the purchase of this car we were visiting our kids in our home state of Texas and happened on a car show where we found a car club that happened to be supporting a Veteran’s Organization.

As we were walking away, I told my husband, “that’s a car club I could be a part of!”

As soon as we moved back to Texas, we joined.

I couldn’t ask for a better group, they aren’t friends, they are family!

Mustang Syndicate and Mission22, these people welcomed us with open arms and we haven’t looked back!
