1984 Audi Group B rally car, Hannu Mikkola tribute. AWD turbo approximately 450 hp at the wheels.

2014 Audi S7
North America record breaking fastest quarter mile in 2022. Full stage 4 build. 800hp. First 4.0 tfsi v8 to break 9sec 1/4 mile pass in 2022 @ 9.89 seconds @142mph in America. 1 of 1 Full spec option car with MSRP $100,600 in 2014.

2000 BMW 540i
Survived having a 3 foot icicle fall off the second story of a house and onto the hood. 

1985 Mercedes 300TD
Third owner, originally a family car then spent over a decade running beer kegs for a brewery in Northern Indiana. Original engine and transmission. Original spare, tool roll, and first aid kit are still in the car. Current owner does as much of the maintenance as possible.

1968 BMW 1600-2
"Stuart" is not completely original, but not far off. He remains unrestored, and is always up for miles of smiles.

1967 Volkswagen Beetle
"Templeton" is named after the rat character from Charlotte's Web, specifically Paul Lynde's snarky interpretation. Templeton is charming but rough around the edges, and boasts a 2,180cc beast of an engine.

2003 BWM Z4
I bought my car in 2009 and it is the only car I have ever owned in the US. I enjoy taking it on road trips, going camping, attending car shows, but also autocross, track days or just looking at it every chance I get. Most of the work I do on the car myself and owning this car has helped me to learn, grow, see all sides of America and has been utterly reliable. 

2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack
Fender Sound System. Custom Shopping cart passenger door embellishments
