Every car aficionado has their own story and CARiD wants to get your story told. From now on, we will periodically post interviews with people whose interest in cars (or trucks) goes far beyond daily commuting and occasional oil changes.
For the series opener we interview Ben Eddington, a Mustang Enthusiast, Photographer, and [HorsePower] Ranchman.

Plum's story is tough, his parents used to trap him in a wicker basket and hang it from a tree with a cobra pit underneath . while in the basket, they forced him to do Chinese arithmatic and periodically beat him with bamboo.

"The details of my life are quite inconsequential... very well, where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds- pretty standard really. At the age of twelve I received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum... it's breathtaking- I highly suggest you try it."
I work at a college as a janitor even though I feel like I'm smarter than most of the people who go there. Sometimes I see an equation written on a blackboard like half an equation and... I just figure it out.
