How did your passion for classic and super cars begin?
It started at the early age of 6, I remember helping my dad restoring his 1972 VW Beetle that was given to him by his grandfather. Then after restoring it, we took it to car shows all around Mexico. For years we won concourse trophies within its category, it was great. With super cars, I remember someone letting me have a seat in a Dodge Viper Roadster at the races in Mexico and I was just blown away, I will never forget that moment when dad was taking a photo of me holding the steering wheel with a big smile.
Can you describe the experience of driving one of these cars and what makes it so unique?
It’s just incredible, the sound, the feel on the road, the way it handles, the performance and also the unique and special way they’ve been designed. It becomes addictive. Driving these cars is like a dream come true, I used to have them on my bedroom wall when I was a kid and used to look at them before going to bed. Now I get to drive them and share the same dream with our customers.
What are some of the special cars currently at Dutton Garage?
