Matt Rigney, Author

Matt brings to the table a very intimate knowledge of modern Mustangs, Camaros and Challengers not only from the books in his collection but from actual ownership. Over the past fifteen years his passion for Mustangs have led him to own eight different models including four fox-body's, three Cobra's and the latest being a Shelby GT. In high school during the early 90's Matt was knee deep in the pony car wars with the 5.0 Mustangs and Z28 Camaros battling it out each year. It was during this time he developed a love for all cars especially ones that went fast. While earning his bachelor's degree in Entrepreneurship and Strategic Management in 2001 from the University of North Texas Matt developed his first automotive website, merely as a bullet point on his resume. Since then he has owned, developed and written for several Mustang, Camaro and Challenger websites including automotive blogs, which he still owns to this day. Matt currently lives in the DFW area holding down a day job in the water treatment industry. He is an avid soccer player and die-hard sports fan of the Rangers, Mavericks and Cowboys.
