Going to the Sun Road

What does a tight, winding road high in the Rockies have to do with the development of Classics and Performance?

Well, everything.

It would be my love of adventuring and road tripping that would eventually lead to my fondness for cars. As I mention on my biography page, I didn't always love cars, I grew to love them rather rapidly once I was able to drive. However, I began road tripping at a very young age, probably before, but certainly by the age of four, when I first traversed this road.

This is Going to the Sun Road in Glacier National Park. It is world renowned, a white knuckler, and stunning beyond description. You have to see it in person to understand.

It was those road trips I was forced to go on as a child that would eventually play a significant role in my appreciation of cars, driving, and the freedom that accompanied them — when I was finally able to take the wheel, myself, as a teenager.

From there, it was an affinity for classic Mustangs, Muscle Cars, speed, and racing that would cement my affection.

The development of Classics and Performance was just a natural outgrowth. Photo: Ryan King, 2004.
