About Us

  Well, it all started back in 1974 or so.  My sister wanted to sell her 1968 1600 roadster and buy another car.  Being a typical teenager at the time, what I really wanted was a 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 with a 428 CobraJet engine in it.  My dad, in his infinite wisdom, refused to allow me to buy the Mustang because he was afraid I'd kill myself with it and encouraged me to buy the roadster instead.  I figured if I couldn't have speed, I could still have handling.

  At the time, I didn't even know the 2000's existed but once I found out, I had to have one.  After all, same car with 40 horsepower more and a 5 speed - what's not to like?  I sold the 1600 to my brother in about 1975 (he still owns it today and has since added a 1968 2000 to his collection) and bought a 1968 2000.  Unfortunately, like some roadster owners, the person I bought the car from didn't take very good care of it.  After I bought it, it took me about 1 1/2 years to correct all of his mistakes and get it running reliably.

  I drove the car throughout my college years and after until normal "family" and "business" responsibilities took over and I had to park it for an extended period of time.  As it sat in the garage for many years, I was encouraged quite a few times to "just sell it" but realized that few people keep a car for 20 or 30 years.  It was a huge part of my past and there were many fond memories it contained so I refused to get rid of it. 

  Beginning in the 90's, since parts were getting hard to find except from a major vendor or two, I started collecting parts for what I expected would be the "life of my car" from any source I could locate.  The internet was in its' infancy and parts access was beginning to open up some; the more I explored, the more sources I came across.  Though the years, the number of parts I collected continued to climb to the point it was obvious that I had more than I needed for my car and the parts collecting had moved "beyond a hobby."

  At that time, I decided to start offering the extra parts for sale to other roadster owners, primarily through eBay.  But most people know eBay has both positive and negative perceptions - some people will not buy through eBay while others won't buy except through eBay.  To expand the business, I needed to create a website and so began the journey toward establishing a full-time roadster parts business which brings us to today where we now can offer parts through eBay and our website.  I still have more parts to add to the website and will do so as time is available.

  Thank you for your patience and understanding as we journey down this road.  Happy Roadstering!
