Background & Plans
In January 2019, we hosted a work meeting at the BMW Performance Center West driving school in Thermal, CA. After 2 lead/follow sessions on the South Palms circuit in an M4 Competition, I was officially hooked and knew that I needed more track time. Being a life-long Ford nut, there was no doubt that my track toy would have to be a Mustang. So glad I stayed true to my blue-oval roots, as these Mustangs get point-by's from M4's like its their job!

I lucked out and found this car very early in my search with numerous mods already completed. Met the owner, who is a very meticulous technician by trade. He took me for a test ride (I was too chicken to drive it on the street), and the rest is history. Future plans include track time, more track time and enjoying the hell out of the time spent with the great people that I've met at the track.
