What project cars lead up to your McLaren ownership?
I had a few Mustang Cobra’s which really sparked my car obsession. From there, I just felt like I needed something a with a bit more flair. I bought a Verde Ithaca Lamborghini Gallardo and built that to how I believe the factory should have built it. It was one of the cleanest ’06 Gallardo’s (in my opinion) out there. From there, I wanted a car with a bit more precision. I wanted a car that described me without having to explain why it does. I’m a super picky, precise, and absolutely a neat freak. Everything I approach I shoot for absolute perfection. McLaren fits that mold. I jumped into my 12C and have been happy since.
What are your passions?
I’m extremely detailed oriented. I own a high end detailing company and my passion is trying to perfect every square inch of someone’s toy. I love taking something from what is perfect to most people, to real perfection. I’m a big tech guru, and also will pretty much drive anything with wheels. Track days are an avid part of my hobby as well – I’m thankful McLaren PHL has such a great motorsports program in place to let McLaren owners use their cars to the fullest in a safe learning environment.
What lead you to SOUL and how do you like your system?
A new company in the industry built upon customer service and build quality – I instantly related to their pursuit of perfection. Their attributes and motto fit what I look for.
Future plans for your car?
Possibly a harness bar, racing harnesses, bucket seats, and a new set of wheels for the track. Other than that, I’m pretty set now that I have the Sport Downpipes – this is what the car should have sounded like from the factory with the increase in turbo noise!
If you could own any car what would it be?
McLaren P1 – I don’t need to say anything further. Just go look at one!
