Member Name: Mattp

Real Name (first name only is fine): Matt

Description of your car: 1989 Mustang 5.0

Location: Chickasha, OK

Occupation/School: I am a 21 year old working in inventory control for walmart and trying to get back in school at Occc

What is your main use for the car now: i use her for Daily driving, cruising, mainly learning and getting to know the Mustang 5.0 better.

What would you LIKE to use the car for in the future: I would like to completely restore her 100% and freshin' up the motor a bit. Basically completely factory stock.

How did you get into cars: Growing up I always had a Hot wheels in my hand and being around my dad and seeing him working on cars. I've always loved cars and especially Mustangs growing up.

Who or What motivates you to keep improving your car: This car does inspire me and motivate me I don't know how to explain it really. There's times where I had it with this car from being stranded in the heat to just being a pain to fix something and I've tried to sell her many times since I've got her and I just can't. She's my baby and she's my first Mustang.

Add a short story about anything to do with your participation in the hobby or your car here:

Mods: I have put a bunch of time and sweat into this car since I have got it. All the "modifications" done to this car are in the terms of replacing a lot of 21 year old parts with new parts. The exterior needed so much help when I got it. I have put 4 coats of wax to keep it shining bright and I keep it cleaned every week along with the interior.

ET times, Dyno Numbers, Awards, Recognition, Race class: I haven't been to the drag strip with it yet. Would really like to but then again 21 year old parts and repairing it worries me as I am broke most of the time.

Purchase: Approximate date. Is there a story behind the purchase? Was it your "dream car"? I had been looking for my first Mustang and I had just payed all my loans off and was ready financially. I was mainly looking for the 99-04 body GT's but found my 89 5.0 and on April 21st 2010 in Tahlequah, OK I bought her. It was an awesome day for me! My first Mustang just as I wanted it! Unmodified, 5 speed, low miles.

Future plans with this car or with another one: I plan on keeping this one and restoring it. I would like to pass this down to my son or daughter as their first car in the future.

Your thanks: Thanks Mom and Dad for the car, the purchase and especially with the repairs

That's nice. I wouldn't give it to one of your kids for a first car though. You'll see a lot of hard work get wrecked before they graduate high school.

Yeah that is true. Who knows what the future brings I may not ever have kids to pass it to anyways.
