2004 Inductee

John's history with Ford and Mustang dates back to the 1970s. His first car was a Ford Fairlane into which he shoved a Ford Interceptor police special. When he finally went drag racing, one of the first cars he drove was Jack Chrisman's Mach 1 Funny Car.

In addition to the Mustangs he has driven to 50 NHRA tour victories, he has a 1965 that he keeps in his museum in Yorba Linda, Calif. John has exclusively driven Ford Mustangs sponsored by Castrol GTX since 1997. With the Mustang, he and his team have won eight consecutive NHRA championships.
