    Hello all,

    My name is Stew Staudinger and I'm a reserve military pilot, bison rancher, husband and father of two great little girls.

    I've got a '69 Series IIa Land Rover restomod, hence the profile name. I also ride a modified VFR750 road/track bike and have a '66 Mustang coupe restomod project on the slow burner.

    I'm an Aeronautical Engineer by education and spent 20 years in the Royal Air Force as a helicopter pilot. I'm now in the Royal Canadian Air Force Air Reserves and fly part-time. I'd probably still be a regular officer if I was single but a young family and a family business drew me out of visiting the world's deserts as a full time occupation.

    I'm here because I'm likely to be travelling a fair distance twice a month (career change/addition) soon and would like an SN95 5.0L GT. I have always wanted a later model Mustang so I'm shopping for a lowish mileage '94/'95 GT to adopt. As an engineer I need a project and if I'm away 10 days a month, I'll need something to occupy my off-duty time so chassis mods, torque arm rear suspension and a tubular K-member etc would keep me fiddling for a while. I also have ported GT40p heads and a Cobra intake waiting for a new home.
