Member Profile – Sara Willingham – Austin

As a kid, I remember having a deep-seated passion for all things on wheels. It didn't really stem from anything in particular; I didn't grow up in a "car" family. By the time I came around, my parents no longer had cool cars or rode motorcycles...but lucky for me my dad taught me early on how to drive. He'd put me in his lap and let me steer down our long drive, and by the time I was eight, he'd let me cruise around the countryside (sshhhh). At nine, I stole my dad's truck for the first time (ag...

Member Profile – Michel Fortier – San Antonio Area

  I am, as they say, a recovering modaholic.  I can’t say when it began, I simply refer to it as the epiphany, the love of race gas and engines nearing redline.  It just sort of happened at a young age which I suppose is a common theme amongst enthusiasts.   Growing up, my best friend’s father had both an AC Cobra and a Ferrari.  It may have all started then but I distinctly remember my ability to mispronounce Porsche (I would say Por-Shee) long before I knew what either of t...
