Love at first sight, or just a means to get from A to B?

Yes love at first sight . I was saving for a 1967 Mustang Fastback GT 500 Eleanor for 20 years but when I saw this car with the Cervini body kit it just looked awesome. I gave a deposit on it there and then.

Lots of muscle under the hood — 4.6 litre v8 producing a very impressive 350bhp

Petrol head or Sunday driver?

Car is mainly a weekend car, especially at 14mpg!

My first car was 1989 Toyota Celica 2litre.

What else do/did you own?

After the Celica, I drove a 1990 Toyota Celica GT4 and then a 1995 Subaru Impreza estate, then a 1997 Subaru Impreza STI — what a car.

Dream drive in dream location?

Dream drive would be in a 2013/14 Shelby GT500 Supersnake across America.
