City: Houston, Texas
Current Car: 1969 Mercedes 280SL
Q: What was your first car and do you have any special memories of it?
My first car was a 1964 Oldsmobile Cutlass Convertible. I have special memories of driving to Galveston with the top down. Not long after, I got a Mercedes 230SL. I loved the 4 speed when driving and the sound of the engine.
Q: What do you love about your current car(s)?
I really like the performance and style of the 280SL, the chrome on the dash, straight body and the fact it was hand built.
Q: Are you connected with other car enthusiasts? What do you like about sharing this hobby with others?
I am connected with over 60 classic car owners and a member of three Clubs. I most enjoy local shows, drives and the friendships that have developed. I have involved many of these people in the Classic Car Show I host each year at the Houston Italian Festival.
Q: Is there anything else you would like to share about being a classic/sport car owner?
Driving a classic car is like no other experience. It is an investment you can really enjoy.
