Welcome to my nightmare . No , SERIOUSLY . Why would a supposedly sane individual take a decent looking , good running street car apart and spend money he doesn’t have to make it faster , meaner and way more apt to get him in trouble ? It must all be a bad dream right?
In a recent conversation with a fellow team member here at Cars Illustrated, the topic of our past vehicles became the focus of our conversation. When asked how many vehicles I’ve owned and what were my favorites as well as why, memories instantly came flooding back.
Ever seen a car you just gotta have? Well for my friend Rick it was this 2014 Gotta Have it Green Mustang. Already the owner of a 2008 dark green Bullit Mustang that puts almost 700hp to the wheels, he just could not resist buying this bright green sibling to keep it company. And, as all such stories go, while this was bought to keep as a “driver”, once the mod bug bites that bastard is persistent.
Frank Guerrero is your regular, hard working speed freak. He grew up on the tough streets of Chicago, learning to spin wrenches at an early age, and taking in an occasional off-track drag race whenever the opportunity presented itself. While passionate about older iron, Frank closely follows the newer, super-efficient musclecars of today. Life was good, working at a speed shop while Detroit kicked out the quickest cars in the history of the automobile. Frank thought he had it all.
