I'm Tom Scarpello of Revology Cars, and this is car# 116- 1968 Mustang GT 2+2 Fastback in custom Highland Green Metallic with black interior. Today, I'm going to take you on a walk around to this car, and we're going to go for a drive. Let's get started!

Okay, 1968 Mustang GT 2+2 fastback. This one is our 68B package which evokes a very special Mustang that was featured in a very special film which we can't talk about for trademark reasons, but that car was Highland Green. This is not Highland Green; this is a little bit darker shade of green. The customer wanted just a little bit of tweaking to its 68B package. At the front, you have the grille without the horse and corral. You have LED headlamps; obviously, all the lighting is LED on the car.

This car is equipped with the Torq Thrust wheels, with a charcoal-painted. Insert wheel size is 17x9.5 It has a 275 section width tire front and rear. So it's a very large contact patch that provides a lot of grip and a very aggressive appearance. 68B package doesn't have any trim. It's very much a minimalist design which just really looks great on the 68 fastbacks. It's satin black tail lamp panel. Tail lamp bezels are satin black, as is the lip of the deck lid GT fuel cap and the Borla dual exhaust with the polished tips.

So on the inside, this car is equipped with the leatherette interior, which is standard, so it's a very high-quality vinyl. It's an OEM vinyl. It looks great, and it's going to be very durable for the long term. 68, the original car for the deluxe interior model had walnut trim. However, this client wanted to go with the brushed aluminum, and carpet is nylon. This car is also equipped with the premium audio system. So you've got the component speakers in the front and the back, the subwoofer in the trunk. If you ever get tired of listening to that great coyote 5.0L exhaust, you've got a great sound system; however, I don't know if I would ever get tired of listening to the exhaust. Let's go for a ride!

So this client opted for the 10R80 automatic transmission because he intends to drive the car a lot. He wanted you to know the convenience of the automatic. I honestly have not had anyone choose the automatic and be disappointed with the choice. It's a nice transmission, smooth shifting. Ten speeds have the right gear for every occasion. We just signed the lease on the new facility, and we'll be moving in later this year. The new facility is a little over twice as large as both of our existing facilities put together. So it's taken a long time to get to that point, but cycles in the automotive business are long. Product cycles are long. It's a capital-intensive business, and it just takes a lot of time to get established, and you must grow.

Yes, I would just call it very methodical. I mean, you see tech companies that with these crazy valuations, and yeah, I suppose you can scale up a tech company quickly and that's attractive to the investment community. I mean, historically automotive, look at a company like Toyota which up until Tesla came along. I think you could easily say Toyota is the most successful automaker ever, and Toyota's is like a glacier.

I mean, it's just this massive thing, just moving slowly but definitively and stable solid growth based on fundamentally good process, fundamentally good products, customer satisfaction, and just doing things right consistently over time which was always kind of my idea of how to make it in the auto business. But then, Tesla flipped that whole model around, and now you get like tech valuations for EV companies which is interesting.

Like, recently, ford sold off at stake in Rivian and I wonder why ford bought into Rivian. Anyway, but that's a different discussion. Rivian, at one point, recently had a market cap of 150 billion dollars. And to date, they've produced about 3,500 vehicles. The valuation of these EV companies is really coming back down to earth because people are seeing the legacy OEMs get, into the EV segment. For us, though, it's just slow and steady; we're the Toyota model; we're not the Tesla model.

I just haven't seen the demand. I think a big part of the appeal of the cars that we build is the sound. It's this overall feeling, this visceral feeling that you get when you drive. And cars these days are so capable. I mean, supercars are just amazingly capable way beyond anything you can use on the street. You don't need more performance. It really comes down to how do you feel when you're driving it. I mean, what's the feedback, through the wheel, through the seat.

I mean, the look is also part of it. And I think that's why what we're doing is so popular because it checks all those boxes, those subjective boxes, the feeling it's that visceral. And a lot of modern cars or I would probably say all modern cars, don't really capture that!
