How many years have you been to FixxFest? What are your favorite and least favorite things about the event? Do you plan on coming back this year?
Of course I’ll be there this year and I’m planning on attending the following ones for many years to come. My and my wife love FixxFest, the laidback ambiance with the sound of cars ripping the 1/4 mile track makes it something special plus I get to see lots of people I became friends with thanks to shows of this magnitude. Also I’m not sure if you know this but FixxFest was the first big euro show I attended with the Caddy. Paul was gracious enough to let me park at the EuroTripper booth for FixxFest 14. Maybe not winning the car Limbo was the reason why I decided to go on Air, lol.
Where do you see your car in 2-3 years?
I don’t have plans of changing much on the caddy, I love the way it is and I see myself owning it for a long time, I think as a matter of fact I will never get rid of it. Probably improving things here and there but who knows.
If you could own any car, what would it be?
That’s probably the toughest question for any car enthusiast. A Vw T5 on Air is something I dream about owning but sadly we can’t get it here in the states. The VW ID Buzz is something I will own for sure, I fell in love with it the first day I saw the concept.
Any words of advice when it comes to enthusiasts looking to begin their own build?
The most important is to have patience with the build, it takes lots of time and effort. Most people don’t realize my Caddy was 90% garage built, except paint (and interior upholstery) the whole thing was done in several garages over the course of a few years but with patience, passion, and dedication you can accomplish anything.
A great piece of advice is also to ask as many questions as you can, the car community (especially the euro car community) is always willing to lend a hand or give advice. Do your research (youtube is usually not the answer) and invest in good tools if possible, it makes a world of difference.
