WHEN JUSTIN SHOWED UP TO ONE OF OUR COFFEE & CLASSICS EVENTS IN HIS '66 MUSTANG PROJECT, HE TURNED THE HEADS OF EVERYONE THERE. NOT ONLY THAT, IT SOUNDED TOUGH AND JUSTIN TAKES HIS FAMILY AROUND IN IT, BABY SEAT AND ALL. WE JUST HAD TO TAKE A CLOSER LOOK SO WE MADE THE TRIP OUT TO THE STICKS TO TALK TO JUSTIN AND TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THIS MEAN MACHINE.
Who are you and what do you do for a living?
My name is Justin Perrin, I'm 25 years old and am a qualified electrician from Ferntree Gully, Victoria, Australia.
Tell me about your first love for cars, right back when you were young. What inspired you?
Ever since I can remember I've been interested in cars. My dad was a big influence on me growing up having a number of Chevs in the garage and I enjoyed tagging along with him to events. I was always encouraged to be involved in whatever he was doing and I guess it just rubbed off.
What was your first car?
Dad bought me a 1962 XL Falcon ute off a family friend when I was sixteen. The plan was to have it completed when I got my license at eighteen but things escalated and it's ended up a complete restoration, gloss black paint with new everything and too good to use as a daily. I still own it but it hasn't left the garage in nearly ten years.
