I’ve been a Ford Mustang fox-body owner since I got my license in 1990. Three fox-bodies later, and I currently own a 1991 LX convertible 5.0L Mustang. Back in the day, I was into speed and hole-shots. I had visited Westhampton 1/4 mile drag strip a few times with my 1986 Mustang GT. Soon after, it closed down and street racing was the only alternative, unless you wanted to drive to Englishtown, New Jersey. Which we did, and the 2 hour drove wasn’t too bad. But it was the 4 hour drive home Sunday night that was torture…especially if it’s in the car you were just racing all day! Nowadays, I’m into road racing and autocross. AutoX is fun and is very convenient since it is held at Nassau Coliseum and Tobay Beach, also at Metlife Stadium in New Jersey. It is a lot of fun and very addicting. After trying once….your hooked. Road racing on the other hand, is a different animal. There is several organizations that help to get you on the track, but basically starting out with HPDE (high performance driving education) days is the best start. And the nearest road coarse tracks are NJ Motorsport, Pocono, Lime Rock and Watkins Glen.
I now work in the TV industry and love cars, especially Ford Mustangs. So, shooting video and editing comes easy, photography is also a hobby I enjoy. So incorporating this with my love of cars and racing is only for fun for me. I hope to inform people with this blog, if nothing else I hope it adds amusement or ideas for other fox-body owners.
I created this blog to help others, there’s so much info on the internet, sometimes conflicting. I hope at least my trials help you. I have linked a lot of manufacturers names to their websites to help. I’m not sponsored but I don’t mind passing on products I like or work well.
