I have always had a passion for cars since I was a little boy. I spent loads of time playing in the dirt with my cars, building homes for them, and pretending one day that I would be driving a fancy car around.

I remember sneaking my father’s 1972 Toyota Corolla out at night when he was asleep and drive it around the neighbourhood. By the time I was14, I anxiously awaited the day that I would get my license…it didn’t come soon enough.
