“I’ve been around cars all my life, growing up. My dad had a black F100 that he modified with custom interior that I loved to ride in.” – Zachary Pounds
Zac’s dad also had a ’67 Fastback that he had custom painted Cherry Red with white stripes – like most classic Mustangs. Although in first-grade at the time, he vividly remembers the night his father brought the ’67 home after getting the motor rebuilt; they just let it run in the garage, revved it a few times, and a Mustang enthusiast was born.
“That Mustang is why I got one in the first place. I knew as soon as I got my first one that I was going to mod it,” says Pounds.
Less than a week after purchasing, Zac’s 2015 Ruby Red EcoBoost had a full custom audio system and exhaust promptly installed.
“Wanting photos of the car got me into photography and drove me to attend shows; Caffeine and Octane is the one I frequented most often, even to this day. Although my first Mustang (an S197) recently got totaled due to someone failing to yield on a left-hand turn, I was able to get my EcoBoost. Two weeks later I bought its first round of mods,” says Zac.

Zac’s just getting started. Future modifications include:
- Twin-scroll turbo upgrade (brand to be determined)
- Turbosmart Blow-Off Valve
- Magnaflow – Street Catback
- Cervinis – C-Series Chin Spoiler
- Steeda – IRS Alignment Bolt Sleeves
- BMR – Adjustable Control Arms
- Different wheels (Rotiform, Avant Garde, or Rovos Forged)

If he can obtain an alternate daily driver, then Zac plans to camber the car out a bit (around -4 or -5 degrees all around) and keep it static. Stay tuned for future updates!
