Raffle tickets for $100 each per chance can be purchased at The Columbus International Auto Show in March and each of the Performance Columbus family of dealerships.


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.  The story will continue to unfold…
