How long have you had your Mustang? Going on 7 years

Does it have a nickname? The Shelby

Why did you choose to buy a Mustang? I had a BMW M3 and was pouring money into it to make it track capable... breaking it on Sepang and constantly fixing it. I wanted something that was robust, wouldn’t break and was insanely fast. At the time, Ford were bringing out the GT500 and it ticked all the boxes. As a bonus, it was also the last car Carrol Shelby sanctioned before he passed away. With moving from Singapore to Australia, my wife Davina promised me that I could buy any car I wanted so I went large and got the Shelby - regardless of what it cost... it is my forever car!

Other than your Mustang, what has been your favourite car that you’ve owned? The M3. It was a pleasure and a pain!!

What do you like to do to unwind? Drive!

Tell us something that not many people would know about you: I nearly took on a career as a professional trumpet player ... glad I didn’t, would not have been able to afford a Camry

Anything else you’d like to share? Nah
