About Adam

My first car was a 5-speed coupe that I bought using a shoe box of money labeled "Money for my First Car" that I had started in elementary school. I drove it through two Northern Michigan winters before selling (for a profit) and heading to college. Over the next 10+ years I'd end up becoming fascinated with the mechanics of cars, trucks, and motorcycles - buying, driving, repairing, improving, and selling nearly 15 of them, including a 37-foot Class A Motorhome during a summer internship with Boeing in Seattle, WA. Each of those vehicles would go on to sell for more than what they were purchased for. While I can't claim to be a licensed auto mechanic, between my diverse ownership history, two engineering degrees, summer employment in the auto industry, and countless projects for friends/family...there are very few parts of a car that I don't have first-hand experience with. Unfortunately, living in the city and traveling frequently (I've backpacked 26 countries and driven a car/dirtbike across many of them), I no longer have the time or space to own one. If you're kind enough to rent me your car, rest assured that I will treat it as if it were my own and return it in better condition than when I received it.

Powerful vehicle! It’s super fun to drive. Adam was a great host, very accommodating. Next time I’m in Chicago I’ll definitely rent from him again!

Adam's a class act. Easy to work with. A true car geek that knows his stuff. The car was spotless. Left more gas than he picked the car up with.
