My favorite quote from this video? “My wife always asks me why I do all those burnouts…I do them for the kids!” squeeeeeeeellllllllll Love it! A fast paced video for sure! (with lots of burnouts!)
Ralph Lauren Car Collection. “Cars have always inspired me, it’s the details in cars that I love and have utilized those details in watches and furniture. I believe cars are works of art. It’s technology, mechanics, details and to me that is a special type of art.”
