There is a select group of people in this world called automotive enthusiasts. They can differ from each other in every way possible but they all share a common interest and that is everything with 4 wheels and a motor. Everyone has their own favorite type, whether its exotic, old school, hot rod, truck, JDM, european, American, or Japanese. No matter what your into they are still an enthusiasts. I am an enthusiasts in every form. I like a little bit of everything but personally a fan of the european car market. This blog chronicles my interactions with any and all types of car culture and my experiences I have through my work, my car, and hobbies.
How it all began...
As a kid I always loved cars and the older I got the more my love for cars grew. I think every man has a little bit of car guy in him. I was very lucky that both my grandfathers were car guys. One owned a truck and Ford dealership and the other was a American muscle man. My grandfather always had a fast car and the first one I can remember was a 1998 C5 Corvette in red. I drooled over it every time I saw it. Then when I was getting old enough to drive he got a 2007 C6 Corvette Z06 in black. It was beautiful and always in perfect condition. I learned how to drive manual in that corvette and that only solidified my love for cars until I got my first one.
It was love at first sight. It was unconditional. I had found the only thing I will ever need in my entire life. I got a black 2003 Hummer H2. Not exactly a performance car but I loved it. I worked hard at my job to buy aftermarket parts and 24 inch wheels. They were glorious! I did everything I could to customize it just the way I wanted it. When I got to college I had to get a different more fuel efficient car. A 2003 BMW e39 530i. It was in perfect condition. Metalic black and it had just been repainted and it was gorgeous. However it wasn't enough power. I had the 530 for about a year but thats when I got my baby. A 2002 BMW M5 with 87,000 miles.
After purchasing this car I realized I wanted to take it to the next level with aftermarket upgrades which is where my blog will begin. I was amazingly fortunate and I got a job at Precision Sport Industries in Winter Park, FL. PSI is a BMW performance specialist shop that takes normal cars and makes them ridiculous, pending customers requests and budgets. I have been able to be around some extremely expensive vehicles and help work on them but most importantly fulfill the customers dreams of how to customize their vehicle. In my blogs I discuss some of the vehicles I have worked on and some of the ones I'm jealous I didn't get to.
