So my amazing husband, Jeff, has a love of Mustangs, Ford Mustangs. And not necessarily the fancy new ones or the super expensive classics. But the ones that he used to drive like a 1988 foxbody. He has owned 3 Mustangs in his lifetime. His very first one when he first got his license. Then the 2nd one; well he really loved that car. Then we owned one for a few years before we had kids, it wasn’t exactly practical so we sold it shortly after our firstborn arrived. But that 2nd Mustang, that 1988 FoxBody always had his heart, it was always his favourite one. He actually sold it to his cousin probably 20 years ago. His cousin has had it ever since and at one time he wanted to restore it so he ripped the entire thing into pieces. He pulled every piece of interior out of it the nuts and bolts and screws were all in buckets but he wasn’t able to begin restoring it because life happened and he got married to a beautiful lady and so it sat in a barn at his family farm for 15 years. Finally, Jeff convinced his cousin to sell it back to him so 2 years ago he trailered this car in bits and pieces the 4 hours back to our house and it’s been up on blocks in our garage ever since.
The restoration of this car was something I thought would be nearly impossible to achieve, not only because of what needed to be done, which personally I couldn’t fathom but also because of the very limited pockets of time that my husband had to do it in.
But I watched him meticulously go through the process of restoring it and this weekend he drove it out of the garage.
Listen to the 8 BIG takeaways I will share with you that we can ALL learn from Jeff’s Mustang Project and how he manages to make it all happen.
