Meet The Founder of FRN!

February 03, 2014 by Chad Houghton


Chad Houghton has had a passion for cars for as long as he can remember. It started at the age of 5, when he and his father built his very own soap box car.  In the 7th grade, Chad started delivering papers to support his RC racing career.  It was in doing this that Chad got introduced into the Mustang craze. One day racing RC cars, he met a young Ford engineer who had just bought a brand new '89 Mustang LX. Chad was able to convince the new Mustang owner to take him for a ride. The driver revved the engine and dumped the clutch, and the tires spun trying to get traction, at that moment Chad was bit by the bug. He knew that one day we would be racing his very own Mustang. Seven years passed when he himself got hired as a production worker at Ford. Within the first month his teenage dreams came true when he purchased his first Mustang, a Green '91 Coupe with under 20000 miles on the clock. He was rudely awoken from his dream a short time later when a camaro (of all things) ran a stop sign, side swiping him into a telephone pole. The car and his dream were destroyed! Within a matter of weeks Chad picked himself up and was back at it with a '91 Strawberry Coupe that he still owns today.

Fast forward to modern day, Chad is still at it with 20 years of experience under his belt. He now has a wrench in one hand and a keyboard in the other. His dream has grown into the go fast Ford website you are currently enjoying. Chads goal is to provide the ultimate play house for Ford enthusiasts, gathering the best resources and information available.
