What do you do to relax? Run a bath, cook, watch Foxtel or Netflix or go for a drive.
Where do you work? Used to be a landscaper then a cook in a girlfriends cafe. I don’t do paid work any longer as I suffer from Cluster Headaches which has prevented me from employment. I’m also caring for my mother since my father passed away last year.
Why a mustang? My father was a Ford man, Billy and I were full on Holden until we saw a 2018 Mustang when I was trying to sell Mums little car. I had always said that for a Ford the Mach 1 looked good for a Ford. When my father passed away he had a pretty serious boat that Billy was just taking out on the water to give it a run. I was never going to get my boat license and I hate fishing down here compared to Darwin, I thought I was going to have to talk Billy into selling the boat but as soon as he saw and heard the mustang start up, he came up with the idea and from then it was ours. This car is very sentimental to me as it’s like a part of Dad, he would have loved it. I have the pin strips on the sides of it with DR GT MUSTANG the DR is my fathers initials of David Rees.
What's your favourite cruise with Melbourne Mustang Club? Would have to be Kilcunda or Gembrook FOR NOW, they were on good roads with less traffic to break up the group and there is no bigger high than looking in front and in the rear view mirror and seeing between 60 and 85 Mustangs lined up. Lake Mountain ( mystery cruise ) is up there too especially as we were following I Am Hulk and he missed the exit off Eastlink and we ended up going through the tunnel twice. The cars sounded awesome in there.
What do you like about Mustang Melbourne Club? The members are laid back, very friendly, not competitive and take time to talk and listen and are extremely supportive on a personal level also. I have made some amazing friends through this club, MMC will always be sentimental to me as it was the first club we joined when we got the mustang and it got me out of the hole I was falling into when I lost my father.
What more would you like to see from Melbourne Mustang Club? I’m into learning more about the car more than Billy, my thoughts would be detailing days on how to properly/professionally clean the car other than that I cannot think of anything else.
