Hailing from Central Mass, Jodie Bell isn't your average Meme. Sure, she has the warmth and wisdom that comes with raising three adult children and spoiling three grandchildren. But beneath the familiar meme persona lies a true gear-head, a woman whose heart beats to the rhythm of engines and whose soul finds solace in the gleam of chrome. Jodie's love affair with anything mechanical began early. Growing up in Central Mass, she was surrounded by the rumble of engines and the smell of gasoline. Her childhood was filled with helping her dad work on cars, he ensured she knew how to change a tire, do a break job or an oil change. This passion never faded, blossoming into a lifelong love for all things automotive. Today, Jodie's garage is a shrine to her passion. Parked proudly is a 2018 GT350, a sleek beast that purrs with the power that belongs to her boyfriend Mark & Jodie. But Jodie's true pride and joy is a project in progress: a 1971 Ford F100 undergoing a meticulous resto-mod. Watch her transform this classic truck into a modern marvel, side-by-side with her supportive boyfriend Mark, is a testament to her dedication.
Andy joined the club during its infancy, thus his membership number of #0021. He was a member of the original Board of Directors, serving two years as Secretary (now, Recording Officer).
He grew up a devoted Chevy guy, but switched to a Mustang lover many years ago. He has since owned 12 Mustangs, including an 80 Fox Body, an 01 Bullitt, and 2 Shelbys. He currently owns a Lightning Blue 2018 GT. He is really excited to become a Board member once again, as the new Recording Officer. Andy enjoys this great club with great people and wants to do whatever he can to support it.
Brad Lucas, a lifelong MA native and third generation Mustang enthusiast who grew up in Western MA, is currently working on a ‘66 Coupe restomod project. He recently sold his ‘92 foxbody LX convertible to make room in his stable for a ‘67 S code convertible. His ‘66 was gifted to him by his Grandfather when he was just 15 years old, as a “father and son” project.
His mustang love affair began with his grandfather who bought a ‘67 coupe brand new off the showroom floor. They were selling quickly he recalled, and it was equipped with a 289 V8, power steering, power front disc brakes, auto, painted in highland green, black standard interio. It had a rare front bench seat option aftermarket air shocks in the rear. It was passed down to his father who owned it for ten years. It was too rusty from driving during harsh New England winters so he sold it and it is believed that the last owner had it scrapped. His Father also owned many first generation Mustangs including several convertibles but he always had fond memories of his first ‘67 mustang. Back then they were just considered used cars he said not anything special and desirable as they have become today…especially the fastbacks…he always talked about the ‘67.
His grandfather owned several foxbody’s after his retirement from the service. In the ‘90’s he would trade them in every two years for a brand new one. He still remembers the thrill of his very first ride in a foxbody with his Grandfather. His grandfather often got pulled over in his red foxbody GT.
His father was taught automotive shop classes from Mr. Halderman in Dayton, OH whose cousin was Gale Halderman the designer of the very first Mustang. Currently his father owns an ‘87 foxbody convertible and resides in FL.
He currently resides near Foxborough with his wife and two children. When he is not looking after his children he enjoys attending car shows, BassPro cruise nights, and parades with his ‘67. He is still working on getting his ‘66 back on the road piece by piece little by little as it is still a work in progress. It has evolved into a tasteful restomod including such things as a Holley Sniper EFI fuel injection, electronic ignition, suspension, and brake upgrades.
My first Mustang was a dark blue 1966 Coupe with blue on blue interior equipped with a 289 K code and 3 speed cobra top loader the price was $325. I had to junk a 1966 four door Chevy 11 Nova in order to get the mustang I was 16 and living at home not enough room to keep both, I only paid $50 for it. I wish you could buy the old cars for the prices of that time. Currently have a 2005 sonic blue Mustang it reminds me of the 1967 - 68 fastback style. Donald is a long time Mustangs of Massachusetts member.
Linda’s first Mustang encounter was in the early 80s. It was a 1967 Mustang Fastback red with white trim and black interior. She spent many nights cruising around with Don. That was back in the day when it was a daily driver. Since then it has earned its rightful spot in the garage. They take it out occasionally and it’s still fun to drive.
