As for his interests in the automotive industry, it all stems from when Adam was growing up and his father had a 1970 Ford Mustang that they restored and a 1964 Ford Falcon. This got Adam and his brother very interested in cars, especially since their father was a big fan of Ford cars. Since his father refused to take a car to a shop for maintenance, Adam was able to learn how to take cars apart and change important parts. He would also attend classic car shows with his family whenever it came to town. Although he previously owned a 2009 Audi A5, and recently purchased a 2010 Audi Q5, Adam is proud of his first-ever car – a 1990 Yugo GV Plus. He bought it for $500 when he was 16 years old and still wishes he had it, as it was great when traveling in the snow. Even though his Yugo wasn’t sporty or speedy, it remains one of his favorite vehicles of all time.
Although he loves classic cars, Adam is equally interested in modern vehicles and how the technology behind them is advancing. As technology in the auto industry is continuously changing, he stays up to date by reading publications like Motor Trend Magazine and by traveling to various auto shows throughout the U.S. Adam also recently attended the U.S. Nationals NHRA racing competition in Indianapolis, Indiana.
