    What did you do to your GT350 today?

    I got a new Rupes BigFoot LHR21 MarkIII polishing machine yesterday. My old Rupes machine died last Monday. (4 years old and I’ve done approx 130 cars with it. Going to send it out to be repaired) I polished the Shelby with McKee’s Jeweling Wax. Very happy with the new machine and the results...

    Post your pictures of how Ford doesn't give a crap

    It was from shipping. Talking with a mechanic who had his Saleen Mustang parked next to my car said it came off the truck that way and it was noted by the receiver. The dealer offered to have it repainted but I didn’t have confidence it would match perfectly. It would also bother me to have a...

    Post your pictures of how Ford doesn't give a crap

    This was a scratch on the drivers side hood. I wet sanded it out very slowly with 5000 grit paper. I told the dealer NOT to clean the car. The first day I had it home I spend 10 hours paint correcting. The car was released and sat in Michigan for 3 months before it shipped. This crap was under...

    Success in orange peel reduction or removal?

    The roof on my 2012 Roush (Kona Blue) is pretty flat. The front fenders and rear quarter panels not so much. My 2019 Shelby is pretty much the same. I haven’t taken pictures of the Shelby the same way yet. I’ve been detailing cars since 1974 and have wet sanded some cars and polished them out. I...

    I’m a diabetic and have to watch what I eat and drink! I’m 58 pounds lighter from getting off sugar type food and drinks. I’m off medication for diabetes and controlling it with diet and exercise. I walk 3 miles a day. I really do like a cold beer but it is a slippery slope if I start drinking...

    When you have a garage you put stuff in it. When you have a BIG garage you put MORE stuff in it! When you have many cabinets you have storage for even MORE stuff! In my case detailing products. Yah, maybe a little out of control! I like my stuff! :)

    Done with stressful parking! Parking cars very close together is a pain in the butt! No matter how big you build a garage you’ll always wish it was bigger. Rolled the HotRod on GoJacks into the back of the garage. I need to get a inspection sticker for the Roush in 4 days. Now back to driving...

    Stressful parking! Normally the HotRod is in the back of the garage rolled there on GoJacks, then there is plenty of room to park the Mustangs side by side. Haven’t driven the HotRod since last summer since I got the Shelby. The Shelby is addictive! I know there is no need to explain to this...

    Post a picture from recent drive

    Went to the Sunday morning meeting for the last 2 months with one of my Mustangs. There was only two other Mustang that would show up. Today I took the HotRod and Murphy’s Law prevailed and 10 Mustangs showed up! Still enjoyed the ride and had a good time. Perfect weather and temperature.

(After 25 years it needs some maintenance That’s being scheduled) The Roush I bought new in 2012. I had a 2002 Zo6 I lost in a flood in 2010. I was looking for a new Zo6 in 2011 and a friend gave...

    I moved the Hotrod from the back of the garage next to the other cars so I can take it out more often. It’s tight but I can make it work. Once I moved the Shelby out I couldn’t resist driving it. Then I couldn’t resist taking some pictures Of it when I got back.

    Caught in the rain.

    Luckily I haven’t been caught in the rain in the Shelby. A few years ago I got caught in a quick thunderstorm in my Roush. It took me 6 hours of detailing the outside of the car and then 3 hours on my friends lift to clean the underside! I got so many questions from guys stopping buy! What’s...
