Well apart from mustangs and pretty much any muscle or pony car {I'm not carcist I love all makes and models}I also love playing poker either online or live in the casino here or any basement haha.I am into 80"punk and metal music also like jazz and blues and classic rock.I used to have a band we put out 2 cd's and on 7 inch on vinyl.We split up last summer when our drummer left. If anyone is interested in hearing it {this is not easy listning music it is thrash metal and it is fast and heavy your ears have been warned }the and was called BASTARDATOR Google it and one of the first sites will be our Myspace page.We have a video on you tube {it is on the myspace page}called entrenched.The song deals with the horrors of trench warfare in the first world war.It was filmed at the Canadian war museum by some friends of ours.

 

So lets get to know you guys now

I enjoy web design, graphic design and anything computer related. I'm totally self taught so i spend a lot of time reading tutorials on line! LOL! I also like military style rifles and pistols, target shooting and of course cars! I've also been know to dabble in antique Mack Truck parts and restorations from time to time! This is what caused me to have an extensive collection of Mack Bulldog novelties and memorabilia. What can I say...it's a sickness! LOL

I guess my TRUE hobby is woking with Ford engines through modifications.

 

I am currently DEEP into the LIMA (429/460) motors and addicted to the 460 Ford.com website. Those guys are the REALLY heavy hitters from all over the country. Lots of engine builders, racers, sponsors and the like - - incredible knowledge!! I have had quite a a bit of experience putting together Clevelands and FEs and tend to hoard things like blocks and heads for those engines.

 

I also LOVE martial arts, primarily the Okinawan styles (GoJu, Wado, Shotokan) but have also studied Tang Soo Do and Tae Kwon Do (both Korean styles). I have an 11 year old son who is showing GREAT promise in Tae Kwon Do. He is scheduled to test for his Black belt in November - - He is probably my biggest hobby!!

When I'm not in the garage, I'm usually goofing around recording tracks and writing music, or helping one of my friends lay down tracks. We dabble in mostly Christian rock, but we like jazz, blues, and classic rock.

I'm really into Roland synthesizers and have two of those.

I love to ride my motorcycles. I have a couple of BMWs, one with a sidecar.

When I am not working on my mustang or my dad's 56 tbird, I spend the rest of my free time either hunting or fishing. I love to archery hunt and fish for steelhead.

I'm the new guy just registered. Besides My Sportster concept (see other post) I always like designing something unique, you know, giving an existing model a little "kick"...........here's an AMC Matador with the shelby treatment. Yep you read right..a Matador, cheaper than dirt itself and voted one of the all time ugliest cars right behind it's cousin the Pacer.

I actually have turbo cast II wheels from an AMC on my car.As far as that car being ugly I don't see it.

I play the drums, I like pretty much any band with a great drummer because of that (Tool, Meshuggah, Rush, Zeppelin etc.). I am a mechanical engineering student and I always enjoyed science and recently math, so I guess I'm kind of a nerd. I like cars that other people typically don't which explains the 73 mustang, crossfire and 98 eldorado (previous daily). I've recently started experimenting with electrical systems, photography, welding, fabricating and using bigger and badder machines (lathes, mills, CNC).

A CNC project for school-

As to another hobbie. Im big and i mean big in to the the off road world. While stationed down in NC. Thats pretty much all i did on my free time. I just recently got rid of my ole cherokee. She didnt have one straight body panel on her when i sold it. More currently i have an 06 tj that gets flogged any chance i can. The 06 was bought with only 24k miles on her less then a year ago. I know have nearly 40k and most of those miles are off road. I am an avid member on most of the big builder and off road sites.

 

I am also a fabricator. I make all of my own parts if they can be made i make them. from panels, cages dashs, suspensions, frames, exhause, headers, pretty much antyhing.

Its a blast. Expensive. but a blast. I would have to say more expensive then the mustangs are. Every time we go out somethings gonna break and need replaced. You gotta pay to play.

I spend a lot of time renovating my house with my wife, landscaping the back yard (it was a half acre of weeds and gravel when we moved here 4 years ago), and I used to play guitar and sing a lot. Now I've got the convertible project to keep me busy (quote from my wife: "If you've got time to work on that car, you've got time to finish drywalling the living room!) LOL So I stay pretty busy. :)
