Owners - Pete & Suzy


Chief Car Guy

Email me

Pete's future career was seemingly determined with his first word "car", much to his mother's dismay. As time has gone on, he has developed a love and appreciation for all things requiring rubber tires whether it is restoring/customizing bicycles or tinkering in the garage with his wide array of hobby cars or just "killing bugs" on a nice evening in his 1968 Citabria aerobatic airplane. Some of the cars in his early childhood were VW Squarebacks, a VW 412, and a '64 Sunroof Beetle. As a result, VWs have always had a soft spot in his heart. During his college years, he developed a greater appreciation for VWs by spending many weekends racing Volkswagen Sciroccos and VW GTIs on an amateur level in SCCA. They were an awesome car for the tight turning, short straightaway venue that eventually hooked him on larger, road racing tracks. Eventually he raced BMW M3s, Lotus and Porsche 911s for fun on many famous race tracks, including Road America. His current (and always changing) collection includes VW pickups, VW Sciroccos, a first generation limited edition Miata, and a patina 1960 Mercury Commuter station wagon that you find him driving frequently on the weekends with his beloved dogs, Dino and Ginger. His passion has made him a very knowledgeable resource for European Motors since he started in 1998 washing cars and worked his way through sales, service and on to his ultimate dream of owner. Although he has moved on from the sales side to a more managerial position, the enthusiasm when you talk to him about cars has never dimmed. His top priority is making sure the customer has a great experience with their European vehicle for years to come.

She has turned every bolt on this car herself and hopes to have it running very soon.
