THE DIRECT COLLISION TEAM
Associate, Kevin Warner, found the car from a friend and it was hauled to the Toyota Direct parking lot. It gathered snow and probably some additional rust. Eagerly, the team dreamed and then passionately got started. Dee West, Chris Fowler and Ralph Zugschwert created partnerships with vendors to select the top shelf parts for this future magnificent mare. Broc Schoonover and Dan Callahan rolled their sleeves up to expertly prep the car. They continued to craft and toil over the body along with fellow Associates, Eric Belknap, Nick Hager and Kevin Warner. Their combined automotive prowess was also geared toward the engine rebuild. Armed with state-of-the-art tools and instruments, Spencer Welch and Matt Zugschwert began the Mustang transformation with paint. Now, all in all, the team has donated over 2,400 hours of their own time to restoring the Mustang. New leather interior will soon be installed, and then this beauty will be all ready for her new owner this summer!
