On Wednesday February 5th, 2014 we lost Gabriel Shimon Assor (although he preferred to be called Gaby by his friends.) A father, best friend and brother, and the first ever fan and all time best supporter of MySickRide.com
Gaby was born on August 28th, 1965 and was a quiet, soft hearted, loving family man. He is survived by his children, Joshua, Chelsey, Nathan and his wife Michelle. Brother Nissim, sisters Hanna and Etty and parents Jaeques and Dolly. He will be missed greatly by all who knew him.
But he wouldn’t want us to remember him in tears, he always liked to make people happy and smile and with that said we will share one of his last projects – a 1973 302 Ford Mustang convertible that I was fortunate enough to help him build along with his wonderful son, Josh.
Many of you may remember my green 1971 Ford Mustang with the supercharged 351 Cleveland and all the mods we did on her. Well, Gaby built up a 1973 Ford Mustang with a 302 engine and did most of the same crazy mods while I was doing mine – it was a friendly competition of sorts!
Here are some pictures and below that the specs on his Mustang:
• 1973 Yellow and Black Mustang Convertible.
• Fully restored and modified including a new 302 crate engine with a wicked Paxton Novi Supercharger, air/fuel mixture adjustment selection and gauge, super charger boost pressure gauge.
• New front and rear suspension with drilled and slotted Willwood Disc brake upgrades. American racing rims. 17” Dunlop tires for just the right stance.
• Custom Magnaflow exhaust and headers – this beast sounds amazing!
• Racing black leather seats and yellow D.O.T. approved racing harnesses.
• Customized audio/video with surround sound and blue tooth
• Custom chrome shock tower braces and radiator clamps, water pump, electronic choke.
• He gave it a brand new top and motor but never had the top up – life was way too much fun with the wind blowing in your face, speeding down the highway!
• There were SO many extras put in it’s hard to list.1973 was the last year of this particular model design.
We’ve had lots of awesome road trips in this sick ride! Gaby Assor, I look forward to building more cars and having many crazy adventures in heaven!
