Listen to this man's words, kids. This is real car guy education. It's all about commitment.
True automotive passion is becoming harder and harder to find these days, especially when it comes to young people (except all you CarBuzz readers, you're cool as hell). But there's still an entire generation that grew up on horsepower and drag racing, and they're going to be gearheads until the day they die. One such example is Michael Murphy, whose passion for Mustangs, notably his 1985 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 is an example we should all abide by. His words about his Mustang are poetic.
So what if he wears tie dye and flip flops; Murphy is a manly man, and believes that you need to bleed a little bit to make your car your own. It's all about appreciating the finest of details that go into maintaining your car. You buy it, build it, sweat and bleed from it time to time. Your car is a reflection of yourself.
