Classic Mustangs - 1964-1973

Original Adele Still Owns Her First, and Only Car…

Still With Its Original Owner

Adele, a real Mustang owner not the singer, stopped by the shop today for some well deserved maintenance on her 1966 Ford Mustang.  She purchased her 6 cyl, 3 spd manual ‘Stang fastback in late 1965 and loved it so much she never bought another car. Not untypical of a vehicle this age, she had few wiring bugs to fix, some interior trim pieces to replace, and under the dash ductwork that needed some TLC…great example of the Mustang’s endurance and longevity!

About Tim Worlitz

I started working on cars when I was 13 years old and have spent the last 35 years in the automotive industry. After graduating from San Gorgonio High School in San Bernardino, CA, I was able to attend San Bernardino Valley College, Cal Poly Pomona, and USC earning Associate of Science, Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering, and Master of Science in Systems Engineering Degrees. I have been fortunate to work in the OEM, OES, Aftermarket, and SEMA automotive segments focused primarily in design engineering, manufacturing, and operations management. I started my professional career at the Subaru of America Tech Center involved in HVAC, Cruise Control, and Accessory Development which allowed me to spend time working with engine and chassis dynometers, data acquisition in lab and field environments cold weather testing in places like International Falls, MN @-40F, hot weather testing in Death Valley, CA @+122F, and conducting vehicle test data acquisition for HVAC and NVH on various closed circuit test tracks in Arizona. While at Subaru I was driver and one of several team engineers involved in setting two Bonneville land speed records in I/Pro class at the 1988 & 1989 Speed Weeks...a record that still stands today. From Subaru, I went on to work stints as Director of Engineering at Thermal Dynamics and Fluidyne Racing Products, Director of Engineering at Wynn's Climate Systems, and General Manager at Standard Motor Products / Four Seasons Mfg Division with operations in US and Mexico. Seeking to exit the rigors of international travel and corporate politics, I became President of Tuskerstone, Inc dBA Dallas Mustang Parts & Accessories in 2015. I am a member of SAE, ASME, & ASQ professional organizations as well as Tau Beta Pi & Pi Tau Sigma national engineering honor societies.
