The detail on this car, as with all of Jeremy's restorations, is just incredible. The overspray patterns and duplication of all of the subtle details along with everything else are just joys to see.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Virginia Classic Mustang!

Merry Christmas!

I love this, so I've been posting it for the past several years.  I found it somewhere on the Internet and tweaked it a bit. I don't know the author (sorry), but it is pretty cool!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Virginia Classic Mustang!



'Twas the night before Christmas and in the garage,


There wasn't a trace of a Chevy or a Dodge.

The presents were wrapped and the lights were all lit,

So I figured I'd mess with the ‘Stang for a bit.

I popped out the hood pins and I lifted the hood,

When a deep voice behind me said "looks pretty good."

Well, as you can imagine, I turned mighty quick,

And there, by the workbench, stood good ol’ Saint Nick!

We stood there a bit, not too sure what to say,

Then he said "don't suppose that you'd trade for my sleigh?

I said "no way, Santa" and started to grin,

"But if you've got the time we could go for a spin!"

His round little mouth, all tied up like a bow,

Turned into a smile and he said "hey! Let's go!!"

So as not to disturb all the neighbors' retreat,

We pushed the Mustang quietly into the street,

Then, taking our places to drift down the hill,

I turned on the key and I let the clutch spill.

The sound that erupted took him by surprise,

But he liked it a lot, by the look in his eyes.

With Goodyears a' crying and side pipes aglow,

We headed on out where the hot rodders go.

And Santa's grin widened, approaching his ears,

With every up shift, as I went through the gears.

Then he yelled "can't recall when I've felt so alive!",

So I backed off the gas and said "you wanna drive?"



Ol’ Santa was stunned when I gave him the keys,

When he walked past the headlights he shook at the knees!

Then the HiPo exploded with side exhaust sound!

Santa let out the clutch and the tires shook the ground!


Power shift into second, again into third!

I sat there just watching, at loss for a word,

Then I heard him exclaim as we blasted from sight,




"Merry Christmas to all...........what a great night!!!"

2020 GT350 Tour - The Hill Country of Texas

2020 GT350 Tour
2020 GT350 Tour


Well, as everyone knows, it's been a super crazy year. Folks have certainly curtailed much of their travel, so it was awesome that we were able to pull off our annual GT350 Tour.

This was the fifth Tour, and we have been fortunate enough to have attended every one. The Tours are held at a different place each year with the Smoky Mountains, Virginia (close to home!), up-state New York (The Adirondacks), and Arkansas (The Ozarks) being the previous locations.

This year's Tour was held in the beautiful Hill Country of Texas. We were based at the Hyatt Hill Country Resort in San Antonio. A total of 26 GT350s participated this year, which means we had about 52 people. There were 11 1965s, 13 1966s, and 2 1967s. Participants came from all over the country...Virginia (of course!), Texas, California, Florida, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Kansas, Delaware, Michigan, Tennessee, South Carolina, Maryland, New Hampshire, and Arizona. Oh, and we cannot forget the one participant from Canada!

With everything going on, the planning of the Tour certainly presented the organizer, Lee Cross, with a daunting task particularly in finding a resort and planning all of the stops for lunch. Again, he did an amazing job! One of our cool visits included Martin Brothers Customs and Rex Rods in Johnson City, TX. The hospitality that these folks showed us was just amazing! Be sure to check out Martin Brothers Customs TV show, Iron Resurrection.    

The Tour lasts five days, but there are four driving days. In those four days, we covered 1025 miles over the roads in the gorgeous Hill Country of Texas. 

I have personally been involved with "old cars" for my entire life, and the Tour is always the most fun that I have had involving these great cars.

Enjoy the pictures!!
