Paul Sr's first 'old car' was a 1968 Mustang convertible his father and he purchased in 1976. Even though it was only 8 years old it had always been a local car and suffered the effects of rust and hard use. But this was the car that brought me into the hobby. His current old car is a 1965 Mustang 2+2 I bought in 1991. It was originally from North Carolina. He also owns two old motorcycles, a 1984 Honda V65 Magna and a 1985 BMW K100RT. His career has been spent at various companies. He spent 5 years working for General Motors and 4 years at Ford Motor Company headquarters in Dearborn, Michigan. He had the pleasure of meeting Carroll Shelby at the Dearborn Assembly Plant (DAP) in 2003.
Paul Jr. has been a mechanic for 17 years. He started pumping gas for Tony at the Red Star Garage in Ilderton when he was 16. He has since gone through his apprenticeships for 310S and 421A. Paul has owned his 1968 Ford Mustang California Special for 6 years and his 1989 Ford Mustang GT convertible for 15 years. Paul is a heavy vehicle mechanic for Marcel Equipment working on large Caterpillar and others equipment.
