Proving that timing is everything, I began driving during the Muscle Car era, and was lucky enough to have the chance to purchase one of these high-performance cars straight from the dealership showroom floor – a brand new 1969 Mustang Mach 1 in Candy Apple red. I often wonder if it was me or my car that my wife was attracted to, but regardless, we’ve certainly clocked a lot of miles and great memories in our very own personal time machine. Now, almost 50 years later, this Stang is still part of our family, and we can’t imagine it being any other way!
Our passion for classic cars is due in large part to our ’69 Mach 1, and it has contributed to our desire to learn more about the history of the evolution of the automobile – from the Brass Era of motorcars to the latest crop of classic cars being built today. Fortunately, many classic car events are held every year, providing us with opportunities to see historically significant vehicles, as well as totally customized new builds. We’ve created eclassicautos.com to share our discoveries through photographs and videos, and to tell you a little of the story behind the event and/or cars that we encounter.
