[nggallery id=119 template=galleryview]

1) When did you get the car?
I purchased the car in 2004. I bought it on speculation. It belonged to my nephew Durrell Brown. He was a little afraid of driving it. He handed the keys to me and said ‘have at it’.

2) What shape was it in?
It is a modified pro street car. It was in excellent shape. I had to redo the engine —rebuilt it and added more horsepower. It had 400 and now has 700 horsepower.

3) What was the biggest challenge in restoring it?
The biggest challenge was the engine. I’ve restored engines like this back in the day. I used to own Pace Auto Body in Peconic and before that Bold in Greenport. Now I work out of my garage at home.

4) What’s your favorite thing/feature on the car?
The engine. It was dynoed (determines the torque or power characteristics of an engine), it makes it a more solid 700 horsepower.

5) What was the first car you owned, make and model?
My first car was a 1962 Volkswagon —silver, gray and black. I bought it in 1971 and paid $100 for it. I had it for about a year. I was driving to Greenport and the wind was so strong, I blew the motor up. After that, I bought a 1961 Chevrolet Biscayne.

[nggallery id=105 template=galleryview]

1) When did you get the car?
Ms. Young said, “It was a Mother’s Day present from my husband Bruce three years ago. He brought me to his Dad’s shop where he had it. I was pretty surprised. I thought I was never going to get my Mustang!”

2) What shape was it in?
“The paint was about as original as you can get- silver blue poly. Bruce found it in a junk yard in Flanders. It was originally from Alabama,” she said.

3) What was the biggest challenge in restoring it and did you do the work yourself?

“I haven’t done anything except replace the brakes and the fuel tank. Did all the work myself,” said Ms. Young’s husband Bruce.

4) What’s your favorite thing/feature on the car?
“I don’t know. Everything I guess because it is a Mustang. I only drive it to car shows,” Ms. Young said.

5) What was the first car you owned, make and model?
“When I was 17 I owned a 1989 gray Buick Regal. I got it in 1993 and had it until 2000,” Ms. Young said.

[My mom] bought it brand new for $3,699 from Helms Brothers Inc. on Northern Blvd. in Flushing Queens. She has all the original documents for the car including the bank check from Queens Savings Bank.

I kept it up all these years. Mom was always on top of it telling me what to do if it needed to be cleaned or serviced.

4) What’s your favorite thing/feature on the car?
She loved the color, bronze metallic. I wanted her to buy the Plymouth Gold Duster but she didn’t like it. I took her back to see the Dodge Swinger.

This is the first and only car  my mother owned. My father, Angelo, had a 1956 Buick Special.

[nggallery id=93 template=galleryview]

1) When did you get the car?
I got the car about eight years ago at a swap meet in Pennsylvania.

2) What shape was it in?
It was kind of plain Jane. I put the flames on and new wheel rims and tires. Also the pin stripping on the dash board.

3) What was the biggest challenge in restoring it, and did you do the work yourself?
It was hard to design the flames with masking tape to lay them out to get them to look right. I worked with Rich at Rich’s Quality Auto in Cutchogue. We worked on it together.

4) What’s your favorite thing/feature on the car?
The looks that you get and the people who come to talk to you about it. You can’t find a car like this anymore.

5) What was the first car you owned, make and model?
It was a 1967 Ford Pickup- a F-150 Royal Blue that I suped up. I bought it in 1977 and owned it for 3 or 4 years.

[nggallery id=89 template=galleryview]

1) When did you get the car?
I got it in the Fall of 2010, but it has been in my heart for 20 years. I met a guy 20 years ago in Medford who kept it for all these years.

2) What shape was it in?
It is in the original condition unrestored, original paint job and interior. The only thing I replaced was the carpet.

3) What was the biggest challenge in restoring it, and did you do the work yourself?
The only thing I had done was replace the master cylinder, it took two feet to stop the car. I had it done by East End Customs. I didn’t do any of the work except the tune-ups and other things to keep it running.

4) What’s your favorite thing/feature on the car?
It is mine! I’m in love with the whole thing. This is my retirement. When I was growing up in New Hampshire a kid on my block had a 1955 red and white one. It’s been my dream to have one ever since.

5) What was the first car you owned, make and model?
My first car was a 1957 Ford Fairlane, brown and white. I got it in 1964 and went to Vietnam in 1966 and my father had to sell it when I was gone because you couldn’t leave cars on the street.
