Featured Member of the Week – jhsartor


My name is Jim Sartor and I’m a 77 year-old retiree living in Southern California. I have followed Cool Rides Online for a few years now after learning about it from some “car nut” friends. I am also part of the Little Guys North San Diego County Car Club.

Currently, I own a 1950 Ford Crestliner, a 2012 Mustang convertible, as well as a 1973 Mustang convertible. This makes it difficult to decide which one to drive when I go out! I usually pick one to drive every week, rotating through them.

I would say that I already own my dream car. I’ve wanted this Crestliner since I first saw one in 1950 when I was just 13 years old. We’ve worked on this car for over a year. The body has been redone and repainted, the interior has been redone in NOS correct material, and Dakota Digital instruments and a stereo are hidden under the driver’s seat. I hope everyone gets to finally own their dream car the way I have.

The best memory I have with my Cool Ride has been when my son was visiting from Illinois in late 2013 and we were picked “Best Shoebox” at the Fall 2013 Goodguys Del Mar Nationals.
