Lindsay was practically born with a wrench in his hand. He was only about 2 years old when he used his Dad’s floor jack to raise his petal car and slid underneath to see how it worked. He had great taste for hot cars growing up and worked hard and bought a Boss 302 Mustang-Shelby Mustang- and 1969 Ford Talladega which was produced for NASCAR and only 500 were sold to the public.
