About the Builders

I am rebuilding this '65 Galaxie with a lot of help from Tim (no not Taylor). He has a 1967 Chevy Shortbed Stepside, all original, 283 3-speed. Tim used to build SCCA and IMSA race cars in the late 70's and early 80's. He's been written up in Dune Buggies & Hot VWs, made the cover of VW-Porsche magazine, cover of Summit Point Raceway magazine. Back in his racing heyday, he could often be found rubbing elbows with Paul Newman (yes, the Paul Newman) of Bob Sharp Racing in Connecticut. When not found turning a wrench, he is teaching the finer points of biology at one of the local high schools.

I was a butcher for 10 years in the 80's, got into computer programming in the 90's and now work for a NASA contractor designing spacecraft for NASA's Advanced Concepts office. I'm a reformed GM owner, having owned and rebuilt a '68 Chevy truck, a '69 El Camino, a '70 Chevelle SS, a '73 Chevelle SS, and a '76 Chevy Laguna street rod. I've helped friends rebuild a '51 Chevy truck, a '68 Camaro, a '69 Chevelle, and a '68 Ford truck. This is my second Ford, the other one being a '70 shortbed truck.
