The name Hezperado- comes from year 2007 when my earlier project, Mitsubishi L200 Magnum, was cruising through Finnish car shows. This pickup Mitsu was loaded with /////Alpine ICE. These webpages opened in spring 2008. After the car was sold to its next owner, the name however stayed. Today Hezperado is a nickname for me and for my projects. After L200 I had a Dodge Ram 3500 with some nice tech updates and then a low E300 MB with Focal ICE. Finally, in April 2011, one dream came true, when a -05 Mustang GT was parked to my garage for the first time.

I highly respect for the retro perspective build theme with this car. Mustang is a classic.

In 2015 the car was competing in EMMA Finland and I´ve been taking part of Finnish car shows since 2003.
