David's Garage!

Hello!! Welcome to my home page! Well, to start my page off, I will tell you about me. I’m 33 years old and have been married to my wife, Kathy, for almost 10 years, after dating her for 7 years. I graduated from NIACC Community College in 1984. After a career in the medical field as a Paramedic, changes in the world now find me a Service Advisor for Dewey Ford in Des Moines. With being around Fords all day its hard to believe they pay me to do this!! I also used to ride on the local volunter fire department, however I now have an interest in law enforcement and have become a reserve sheriff deputy for the county we live in.

To keep me out of trouble, I have served for 3 years as President of the our local Mustang club, Mustang Club of Central Iowa, (Iowa’s largest) and have taken a position as board member for the last couple of years. I also have started my own part time business, selling Pinnacle Natural Waxes, P21S Wheel cleaner, 303 Rubber protectant and other car care products.

Well... that's enough about me.........let’s get on to the toys I have and like to play with. To start there is my pride and joy - three Ford Mustangs. One is a 1991 Mustang GT. It’s Ultra Blue with Titanium on the lower 1/4 of the car. My wife and I have done a lot of modifications to the car to make it go faster and corner better. We both have raced the car in autocrosses and drag racing events. I have driven the car at open track events including ones at Road America, a 4 mile road course in Wisconsin, at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Charlotte, North Carolina, and at Hallet Motor Speedway outside of Tulsa, Oklahoma. I tell you, it was a ball going around the high banked track at Charlotte!!!!! I also enjoy going to car shows with the car.

The other Mustang is a 1965 coupe that my wife had as a school car. We enjoy taking this car to car shows and going to cruises in it. This late winter / spring it goes in for a freshening up of the paint. I also owned a 1970 Boss 302 before I got married along with a 1966 Mustang coupe. I really miss the Boss and hope to some day have it or one like it back in my garage. I also some day hope to see parked beside it a 1993 Saleen Mustang SA-10, a 1967 GT 500 Shelby Mustang ( or a '67 GT-350 with a Paxton Supercharger), a 1970 GT 500 Shelby Mustang and a 1982 Mustang GT.

Last but not least is our latest addition - a 1985 Mustang GT. This is our go anywhere car. Be it a nice sunny day or a cold snowy day this is the car that we go in. After driving a '75 Maverick and a '76 Torino everyday for the last 5 years its great to be back in a Mustang again!

The 1982 - 1993 Mustang GT Registry also keeps me busy. To find out more information about the registry and late model GT's, click here...

Cruise on over to the 1982-1993 Mustang GT Registry Homepage!

I also enjoy watching NASCAR racing and cheering on the Ford drivers. My favorite drivers are Bill Elliot and Ernie Irvine, but really as long as a Ford is in front I will cheer for them.

One of my other hobbies is model railroading. Now that we have a house I have been thinking on how to set up my model railroad. Once again the space problem is going rear its ugly head. My dream lay out probably wont fit here, however I should be able to get something set up. Since its been 10 years that I have had to go without my railroad I will gladley settle for something.

Don Beebe - Green Bay PackersI also LOVE the Green Bay Packers. TITLETOWN has returned !!!!! I have liked the team since I can remember and once again this year they are looking good. When I was 7 years old, I got to tour Lambeau Field and the Packer Hall of Fame. This year on the way up to Road America for the Shelby American Club Nationals we went a few days early to check out the New Super Bowl trophy that was brought back to its proper place. Let me tell those three trophies look good!!!! With my guidance Kathy has been taught to cheer for the Packers too, along with Krista and Amy.

In what spare time I have from the above listed activities, I enjoy my two girls. It’s fun to watch them grow and learn. I am not, however, looking forward to the day when they start to date. Every father’s nightmare is when the daughter brings home the boyfriend and he likes Chevy's!! Quick.....get the gun!!!!
