About CoolFords.com

The Man: In 1999, after scaring a car salesman with a few burn-outs on a routine test drive in San Diego, Jason knew he was hooked on the Ford Mustang. After a few months of looking, the day finally came when he found a dark forest green 94 GT coupe with the 5.0 engine. This was going to be the foundation of a project that would continue for years to come.

Attending college during the height of the dot com boom, it sparked his attention on creating simple websites that featured his car 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. He 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. The 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. CoolFords.com is quickly growing into the Premier Website For Ford Enthusiasts and we'd like to thank all our sponsors who have supported us and continue to support us over the years.
