Hey everyone. Name is Marco. Not completely new to HI. I was here back about 2002ish.....I've also been a member of HPD ( Houston Performance Driving ) for a few years now. Im in the classic Italian car restoration business. I work at a shop in Livingston where we help people with parts , upholstery and restoration of all the classic Ferrari's , Alfa Romeo's , Lancia's , Lamborghini's etc....
Before this business i was in the custom car audio business for about 6 years. As much as i loved doing that Houston is getting more and more full of junky little black market car audio shops and most of the good reputable high end places are closing or leaving.
Ive been into many different scenes and ive owned many different kinds of cars over the years.Here's a short list of the cars i've toyed with. Ford Probe GT's , FC Turbo II RX7 , XR7 Cougar , 79 Grand Prix and more. I was introduced into bagged mini trucks a couple of years ago by some good friends and decided to give that shot and bought a Mazda B2200. Static dropped it , put some wheels on it and a few other things and just when i was enjoyng it , the motor blew. Having no garage or funds to do a engine swap i moved on from that project.....ever since i just drive my daily driver unsure of what to buy next. Ive always been into classic VW , ive always wanted a Sierra Cosworth ( a Merkur XR4Ti with a bunch of money dumped into it ) Being in the Italian car business and also being Italian maybe I should just go buy me an Alfa Romeo GTV6. We'll see.....

If youve been to any HPD cruises i would either have been in a (get ready for this) pink Ford Probe GT or a 94 Firebird Formula WS6
