What is your present goal for car(s)?

I'm looking forward to building my own 4.6 with the help of my friends.

What was your reason for buying the car(s)?

Mustangs are absolutely fun...

What other cars have you considered buying/presently own?

Coming from a Chevrolet family (employees of GM) I'v owned a crap load of GM products from my Camaro to a Monza Spyder. I nearly purchased a 1998 SS Z28 on the GM family discount plan.

What are some of your Car / Driver achievements?

Wow, that's a tough one....NONE!

Shout outs to people that helped you achieve these goals?

I realy gotta say thanks to everyone on the SSOTN boards because this is a place of knowledge and friendship. I pretty much keep to myself and regret that I do not know more of the members personally. But I really gotta say thanks to Bob Lunner and Alain Alfaro, these guys are always willing to help with the "little things".

What is your Best 1/4 time?

GT 14.3 - Lightning 13.6

Do you have any regrets along the way?
No regrets ever...

What was or is your favorite vehicle to this day and why?
Well my favorite all time favorite car was my 1980 Chevrolet Monza Spyder. I replaced the 305 with a non-emissions 350. That car rocked...
What other things do you enjoy besides cars?
Spending time with the family and watching them grow. I also enjoy drumming...
What upcoming events in 2006 do you plan on racing in if any?
I'm hoping to attend / participate in the NATS.


What is your favorite thing about the Nats?
Meeting members and the "smack talk races". But most of all, having my kids get into watching the races and enjoying themselves.
How did you find SSOTN?
I did a search on MSN and there it was. It was cool knowing that alot of the guys were from the mid-atlantic region and when I found out that SSOTN was holding a "get together" at Cecil County dragway...I was hooked once I attended in 2001 (as a spectator).
I heard you used to be a Chevy guy, what made you switch sides?
Well, after owning my Chevy Monza, I always liked the idea of a small car with a V8 engine. When I got the 85' Gt, I was absolutely hooked.

Congrats to Cliff Saunders for being the SSOTN Featured Member for October 2006.
