The Victory Muscle Cars Story… from Rob Johnstone and Tom Pendl, founders of Victory Muscle Cars.
We wanted to take a moment to explain the back story of Victory Muscle Cars and how we got to where we are today. So here it is… the Victory Muscle Cars story:
First and foremost, Victory Muscle Cars represents a vision rooted in the appreciation and passion of all things automotive and motorsport related. We are car, racing and motoring enthusiasts at heart.
We met years back while attending Marian University in Indianapolis, Indiana. A truly awesome city for two auto enthusiasts to have met. After our first year of living on campus at Marian University we packed our bags and moved a few blocks down the street to Speedway, Indiana with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway basically in our backyard.
When not in classes we both spent most of our time tinkering with our vehicles and motorcycles, hanging out at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, attending collector car auctions, competing in car shows, thumbing through endless volumes of Trader Paper and Wheels & Deals, buying & selling just about anything with an engine and reading never-ending issues of automotive magazines, journals and books.
Over the years before and since college we have owned a wide variety of cars, motorcycles, boats, trucks, travel trailers and motor homes. We’ve had the great pleasure of owning Mustangs, Corvettes, Jeeps, 442’s, MG’s, Chevelles, Camaros, Novas, BMWs, Porsches, Lexus, Mercedes, street rods, Harleys, Ducatis, Yamahas, Airstreams… the list could go on and on.
