How did you first learn about Cool Rides Online?

I first learned of Cool Rides Online through the wonderful world of Facebook.

What Cool Rides do you currently own?

I own my 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer which I’ve put a lot of wrench time in.

Now tell us a little about your favorite “Cool Ride”; what makes it special?

The time I spent out in my car makes it’s special. From the body kit, to the custom interior. I’ve put in a nice JL Audio 7 Speaker Sound System. Performance Headers, Forged Pistons, Custom Paint Job and Custom Rims. This car is and will always be special to me

What’s next for your Cool Ride?  Planning additional work for it or maybe a special trip/cruise?

I’m trying to reinstall my turbo kit at this time.

What was the most difficult modification you’ve completed on any of your Cool Rides?

The Body kit was by far the hardest because of the re-molding I had to do to make it fit due to the custom vents I added on for my turbo. I am trying to make it a twin turbo by fabricating my very own custom turbo.

What’s your favorite memory involving your Cool Ride?

My favorite memory was me racing this Saleen Mustang. He thought he was going to win but my acceleration was too much for him. I won a new set of Tenzo custom rims.

What is your dream car to own if money was not an issue?

My dream car would be a Cadillac CTS V-Coupe Hennessy Edition. I LOVE that car.

Taking care of collector vehicles is not easy.  Do you have any special tips on how to take care of your Cool Rides in and out of storage?

The main thing is to never let dirt or any type of filth stay on your car for a long period of time. Always keep it under shelter or keep it in covered. Wax will help maintain a healthy shine.

Is there anything else you’d like the Cool Rides Online members to know about you?

I Love Cars
