Scott knows the sales process here at CJ Pony Parts like the back of his hand, but what’s even more impressive is his passion for all things Mustang. We recently probed Scott’s brain to learn about his experience in the Mustang world, and we’re excited to share some of his story.
Scott grew up in Middletown, Pennsylvania and raised as a “Ford guy” at the influence of his father. He has always been attracted to Muscle cars, and claims his draw to the Mustang perhaps came from simply discovering them first. In June of 1978, he purchased his first car, a 1970 Mach 1, at the age of 15. It was with this car that he learned to drive, and he still has it today!
This ’70 Mach 1 was a rotisserie restoration, which he began working on in a one car garage and has been a 15 year restoration. This lack of room actually forced him to keep some parts in different rooms of his house as well as the garage, but we're sure many other Mustang enthusiasts can relate. You might also spot Scott's Mach 1 in some of CJ's install videos.
In the past, Scott has also owned a 1964 ½, 1965, and a 1996 Cobra, with the Cobra having several upgrades: bolt-ons, gears underdrives, throttle body, headers, exhaust, and a Superchip. His all-time favorite Mustang is the 1970 Boss 302, which we think is a great choice!
For his involvement here at CJ’s and in his personal time, Scott can be seen attending some car and Mustang shows in the area, and even the Charlotte AutoFair, which is perhaps his favorite. He’s also enjoyed the Turkey Rod Run in Daytona, and says he will be heading back to that one again sometime. Perhaps one of the things Scott is most excited for in the future is attending the 50th anniversary show of the Mustang.
Scott’s passion for muscle cars and the Ford Mustang is not only impressive, but his experience and dedication to CJ Pony Parts makes him much deserving of some spotlight. If you want to meet Scott and perhaps hear more about his ’70 Mach 1, you can catch him enjoying the fun at this year’s Customer Appreciation Day.
