Jason Gavin is founder and Editor-In-Chief of CoolFords.com, one of the fastest-growing Ford enthusiast websites in the world.
Jason attended college during the height of the dot com boom and it sparked his attention on creating simple websites that featured his Mustang and the modifications he had performed. Creating these hobby websites lead to an idea that one day grew into his first internet business. The website featured tourism photography for the local college town but whenever possible he would make sure to have his car placed discretely in the shots -kinda “Where's Waldo” effect.
After 6 years in the internet business he and his partners decided to sell the company and move on. But it wasn't long after the business was sold did the “itch” strike him again. Jason had been following several Ford related websites that hadn't changed much in design and functionality in years so he decided to create his own. In the fall of 2005 while holding a day job he began planning for a project called “CoolFords.com”
Over a year and half in the making and many hard decisions whether to put money into his car or the website, that CoolFords.com was finally released in the Winter of 2006. His second internet business was born and since that time CoolFords.com has grown from a simple photo blog into a full fledged web community with tools and features that rival the biggest social networks.
