Tell us about your love of classic cars.
I have owned, raced, rallied and loved several dozen classic cars over a period of 40 years, or before they were deemed “Classic” in some cases. I have at some point in time owned every British sports car from a frog eye Sprite to an XK 140, many Jaguar Mk1 & 2 saloons and a variety of European sports cars, mostly Alfa Romeo, Lancia and several Porsche 911’s from the 1965 – 1972 era.
Which classic car do you currently own?
A 1964 Porsche 356 bought from a German collection and carefully restored and prepared for historic road rallying and hill climb events over a period of 6 years.
What do you love about your classic car?
It’s looks, relative simplicity; the way it goes and handles and the many conversations with total strangers which seems to a be a prerequisite of owning such a vehicle.
What is your dream car?
Lancia Aurelia B20GT
Why did you choose Hagerty to insure your car?
