Marcel (Marcel) CRO Founder – Manager – Blogger

CROI first came up with the idea for an online car show in early 2009 and after receiving the green light from our sponsors, Cool Rides Online was launched in June of 2009. Cool Rides Online started as a one page automotive contest but has since grown to this amazing club/website with over 5,000 members and more than 100,000 followers. More than the sheer number of people that Cool Rides Online has reached, I am most proud of the quality of people I’ve met and the many great friendships I’ve made through CRO.

Augie (Adelmonaco) Administrator – Graphic Designer – Blogger

CROI joined the Cool Rides Online team back in August, 2011. I currently work in Graphic Design and E-Marketing with Gold Eagle. I have had an interest in cars since I was a little kid. I was never greatly educated on the subject, but just flipping through all the car images in Road & Track and Motor Trend Magazine fueled my passion for cars. Thanks to the folks on Cool Rides, I am able to see and learn more and more every day about the captivating world of the Car Enthusiasts. Interacting with everyone has become a hobby I enjoy, and I look forward to meeting and learning more about all of the Cool Rides members.

Colin (colin_d) Administrator – Blogger – Blog Editor

colin_dI joined the Cool Rides Online team as an intern in December of 2012. Currently, I am a student at Lewis University where I also play soccer. Growing up there was not a day I would be dreaming about cars – looking at them through a computer or magazine – and I find it ironic that I am able to be able to do that now. I love it! What is fascinating to me is the comradery the Cool Rides Online community shares. I thoroughly enjoy connecting with everyone that comes through to our online car show.

Marcus (MMcglory) Lead Web Developer

CROI strive to be the best of me I can be. I am adventurous while being cautious. I love life and have made a life choice to understand it by enjoying it. I love programming and design and I strive to make the internet as surreal as real life.

Harry (Dawg) CRO Torrington Cruise Night Host – Moderator

I am retired Navy and CRO’s resident dawg. I actively promote and sponsor products at the Torrington Twilite Cruisers Night every Friday. I also pick a CRO ride of the month at this show.

Carl (cor66vette) Moderator – “CRO Police”

I joined CRO in January 2011 as soon as I discovered it and after getting sick and tired of the same old online car forums. It’s cool being part of a group of guys and gals who are excited about their rides and are willing to share that excitement. It’s also cool being part of a forum where the admins make it easy to participate and actually solicit ideas from the members. And CRO is so willing to “share the wealth” so to speak, by offering product freebies once in a while from forum sponsors. CRO is like a home away from home.

Mike (CORDOBA-440-MAN) Moderator – “CRO Police”

I am another car nut on Cool Rides Online. Since I was 8 years old, all I have ever thought about or played with was cars. This passion carried on and brought me to learn the trade of being a diesel mechanic. Most of my time and money is dedicated to my cars, but when I am not doing that I am with my friends. I have made some great friends on this site and enjoy talking with Cool Rides Online members. Additionally, I have been a Ride of the Month winner and love the products that help sponsor Cool Rides Online.

Randy (360Rocket) Moderator – “CRO Police”

I was born in Freeport Grand Bahamas and grew up in West Palm Beach Florida. I then graduated high school and served in the United States Marine Corps. Have been in retail management for 22+ years. I have been obsessed with automobiles all of my life.
