Enthusiast Spotlight – Denny Scott

June 7, 2010 2:17 pm

Denny Scott is the quintessential performance vehicle enthusiast.   An IBM Systems Engineer for 30 years, he is an exacting type of individual that appreciates the finer things in life and accepts no substitutes.  A dedicated Steeda customer for over two decades, Denny not only enjoys driving his performance vehicles on the street, but he also competes in local and SCCA Autocross events with his Steeda Mustang.  As a matter of fact, he makes it a family affair by having his son and daughter race with – and sometimes against him at these events !

It all started over 40 years ago when Denny was bitten by the performance vehicle bug and began competing in a series of Solo II autocross events.  That grew into participation in a series of competition driving school lessons to hone his driving skills, and eventually various stints in the Skip Barber / SCCA Formula Ford Race Series, several Sebring 6-hour Firehawk Races, and many other competitive races and events.  Having attained a IMSA Competition Drivers License as well as a SCCA Competition License and Solo I Competition License, as well as numerous championships and records over the years, there is no doubt that he is a true sportsman when it comes to competitive driving and the lust for the sport!

With all of this competitive driving experience, Denny can be very picky about the type of vehicle he drives and also how he wants his car to perform.   Not satisfied with the turn-key performance of regular performance vehicles, Denny has for over 21 years turned to Steeda Autosports for his performance vehicle needs.  His past stable of performance vehicles over the years has included a 1968 Mustang Coupe, 1967 Shelby GT500,1991 Steeda Q (Steeda Autosports 1st  complete car by the way!), a 1993 STEEDA Q, and then his current mount, a 2008 California Special Mustang.

When it came to outfitting his 2008 California Special for optimum performance, Denny consulted with the Speed and Sales Professionals from Steeda and the end result were the following items/modifications to his ride:

  • Steeda cold-air Intake w/carbon fiber elbow
  • Steeda billet strut tower brace
  • Steeda G-Track lower brace
  • Steeda front adjustable swaybar
  • Steeda front swaybar mount braces
  • Steeda Bump steer kit

  • Steeda 18×9.5″ & 18×10″ Ultra-Lite wheels

Suffice to say, Denny Scott is living life in the fast lane with Steeda Autosports !
