4) Stang

Stang is the Secretary Treasure of the 101 Auto Club of which I am a member. He is an authority on early Mustangs (from which comes his nickname) and Ford related products. His son who also belongs to the 101 Club is into Camaros. 

A 68 Mustang is Stang's current project, it's pretty much done except for paint. The engine is the original and was rebuilt and ---- by his son in his high school auto shop class. The shop class instructor is well known and respected in this area, this man has forgotten more than most people know about auto mechanics. The C4 transmission was rebuilt by another 101 club member who also got his training from the same automotive instructor. 

Stang's work space is a single car garage which could be very limiting however, the area and storage is well organized to utilize the most efficient use of it.

We don't have a before photo, these photos are after some rust repair (replacing metal) and hammer and dolly work.

  License plates that Stang has picked up from time to time.      A good mix of wall art along with tool and material storage.

          It took 2 visits to achieve the photos and information I felt necessary, thanks Stang for your patience and help.
