My life has not always involved cars. Growing up most of my memories where on a bike, it’s something that my dad got me into at a young age. Even to this day it’s still a big part of my life and now my daughter’s as well. With that being said, bike riding has also giving me confidence in knowing that you can accomplish anything if you put your mind to it.
I started getting into automotive scene when I was around 15, My 1st truck was a 1966 c10 short wide that my dad and I restored. Pretty much from there on, I guess you could say I had the itch! Like everyone reading this knowing you are a Ford guy/girl I’m sure we’ve all owned something other than a Ford. My 1st new truck was a 1998 Silverado 1500. I wanted something that would be easy to build as a show/ daily driver, I just kept it simple with air ride suspension and a set of 20×8 and 20×10 billet specialties. Since then I have owned a few Mustangs including: 2011 mustang 5.0l, 2012 mustang 3.7, 2002 Mustang gt, 1997 cobra, 1994 cobra and a 1993 lx coupe.
My 1st real job out of high school was working at Discount Tire and that is what led me where I am today. I still remember years ago a guy that I knew as a kid came in to Discount Tire one night in his Ford Lightning to get a flat fixed. He was telling me he was starting his own company selling Mustang parts and he was super excited about it. So a few years went by and I would see him from time to time, I would ask him how the company was going and he said it was going really good and he was about to move to a new location with more room. That was about the time that I asked if he needed any help in sales being I was ready for a change. He got me set up with an interview and well that was about 8 years ago!
Not a lot of people can say they love what they do, I can tell you I have never once woke up and dreaded going to work. It’s really nice to know that you are going to work with a group of friends.
