Greetings from Chicago

Hi All!

 

Glad to have found this group. I've had my `72 Fastback since I was a young man, and for years it has sat rather untouched. That will all change soon though, so I look forward to sharing the journey to get her back on the road better than ever.

As a bit of background, here are my vitals:

Name: John Santiago

Profession: Philosophy Professor

Car #1: 1972 Mustang fastback

Car #2: 2006 Mustang GT

Home: Chicago, IL

Hobby: High Performance Driving, Time Trial racing, Driving Coach

Affiliated Organizations: NASA-Midwest, Hooked on Driving-Great Lakes region, MVP Track Time, Midwest F-Body

 

I got into the driving scene about 6 years ago or so, and I've taken my (once) daily driver 2006 Mustang from stock to a heavily modified track toy. I'm not much for straight-line drag strip work, as I much prefer the curves of a dedicated road course. The `72 probably won't be built for that sort of duty, but it should have a solid foundation for it if the direction of this car's build changes down the road.

 

Should be fun!

 

Best,

Welcome from across the lake in west Michigan.

 

As an old school drag type guy who has recently started autocrossing... it is addicting and fun!

Thanks everybody!

 

I have to admit, this is probably the warmest reception I've gotten on a forum board. Nice folks - and from all over the place! Very cool.

 

And Mike, that video is great! I have a bunch of video ideas, but never the time/resources to pull them off. Glad yours made it to reality.

 

Best,

Thanks. All the credit goes to Michael Schu who made the vid, filmed and edited it and everything else. I only provided the car and the reckless driving. :)
