FROM CAR SHOW'S, COLLCTIONS AND MUSEUMS DOWN TO THE REGULAR JOE'S WEEKEND PROJECT. SPEED AND SHINE COVERS ALL THINGS ON WHEELS. CARS, TRUCKS, JEEPS, BIKES AND THE STORIES BEHIND THE OWNERS AND THEIR VEHICLES
Mike Sadler has been passionate about cars his entire life. His childhood toys revolved around cars, and he helped his dad with sand drag racing, pulling contests, and mug bogging as he got older. Mike learned how to make vehicle repairs in the backyard with his dad, including changing engines, swapping vehicle bodies, and doing body work.
Once he was able to drive, Mike was given the old family car—it needed some work, and he did the repairs himself. He owned over 20 different vehicles by the time he was 21. His current collection includes a 1971 Ford Maverick Grabber, 2010 Mustang, 2002 Ford Thunderbird and 2009 F150, and his dream cars would be the 1966 Mustang GT350 white with blue stripes and the newest Ford GT.
Mike considers himself a talented car detailer. While he drives Fords, he enjoys all makes and models and has worked in auto parts for over 20 years, serving as a chief of staff for two state representatives, and as an elected official himself.
Married, a father to three boys and a grandfather, Mike currently serves as the Vice President of Operations of a national company. He has a small garage separate from the house where he performs work on his vehicles and films content.
Mike is a regular car guy that loves to be around all things on wheels. He’s chasing his dream by creating Speed and Shine, a TV show, YouTube channel, and social media presence dedicated to sharing that love.
