    Ford Mustang, The Early Years Podcast -- Guest Interview Application
    How long have you owned your Mustang?:
    Almost 6 years

    If you own a Mustang or classic car, have you named your car? If so, what is his/her name?:
    Lily

    If you've made improvements to your classic car or restored it, what work have you done?:
    Before the engine blew up, only an electronic ignition but currently rebuilding the engine with a paxton supercharger and in the process of having a custom gas cap emblem.

    What plans do you have for improvements/restoration/modification of your classic car?:
    My plans for my mustang is to continue to customize it around the cobra logo Peter Brock did design and taking inspiration from the 65/66 racing Shelby GT350 but keeping in mind the 67 design. So more cobra logos, maybe a custom side fender cobra logo, to make GT350 competition seat replicas, Shelby drop, replace my tach with a vintage cobra one, custom cobra shift knob. In the future, my plan would be to improve my suspension system and get back my 3.00 rear gear ratio.

    Classic Recreations, Igor Polegkiy Interview

    When your position is to build, under a bespoke license from Shelby - turn Ford Mustangs, into carbon fiber Shelby race cars, you've got my attention. Welcome Igor Polegkiy to Ford Mustang The Early Years

    Ford Mustang, The Early Years Podcast -- Guest Interview Application
    ============
    Do you own an early year Mustang?: no

    Please upload a favorite pic of your Mustang or a classic car you drive now or have owned in the past.:

    If you own a Mustang or classic car, have you named your car? If so, what is his/her name?:
    My favorite from last year was Open Road, a beautiful 1967 GT500CR Carbon (prototype) that I raced at Sonoma.
    We called her Open Road because it was the dealer that owned it. But she saw the open road many, many times for a 1-of-1 prototype.

    Are you are in the business of selling, modifying, repairing or restoring Classic Mustangs? : yes

    Are you a supplier of products to Mustang and Classic Car enthusiasts?: yes

    If you've made improvements to your classic car or restored it, what work have you done?:
    We build, under a bespoke license from Shelby - turn Ford Mustangs, into carbon fiber Shelby racecars.

    We work directly with race chassis manufacturers, Shelby American, and our unique vendors to push the legacy of not only Ford but Carroll Shelby forward.

    What plans do you have for improvements/restoration/modification of your classic car?: Our goal is to primarily continue innovating the 60s design, for modern practical use. There is a right, and wrong way to build a racecar - we do it the right way, the Texas way.
