I ❤ automobiles of all kinds. I have a deep passion for driving and immense respect for the engineering and R&D that make great cars amazing. I value craftsmanship, I am very fond of unique models and know how difficult and expensive it costs to maintain them.
I know first hand the immense expense of ownership, I'll appreciate your vehicle with the respect it deserves. I learned first hand that top tier vehicle's sticker prices are nothing more than a ticket of admission.
Best car owned to date:
2008 BMW 760li
It was the year of the naturally aspirated V12, and also the same engine found in the RR Phantom and the original McLaren F1. It was my idea of automotive perfection: Speed, handling, luxury, space (it's as long and heavy as a ford expedition), style and the hottest sleeper ever made. Take the V12 badge off and it looked like every other 7 series. Obedient at sane speeds, but hit the throttle and the thrust made it feel like a jet. It's still the largest vehicle that truly handled like a small sports car, it doesn't have the drawbacks that are inherent with all large sedans/truck. The rear seats are superior to every stock gulfstream made to date.
Best road trip: Driving South on PCH from Tahoe to Orange County.
Dream car: Ferrari 250 GTO COMPETIZIONE
