Larry has always been a car enthusiast. At 10 years old, he had the only Sears riding lawnmower with dual exhausts on the street. (Actually copper water pipes.) He graduated to go-carts and took a go-cart designed for 5 mph and made it go 30 mph. He has over 50 years of direct hands-on automotive experience. Cars are a passion, not just a business to Larry. He is an accomplished amateur race car driver, judge and car restorer. He brings you the direct expertise needed to help you protect your investment.
