According to his mother, Chris came into this world with a wrench in one hand and a Hot Wheels car in the other. “I was born this way”, proudly states Chris. “No one in my family was into cars like I was. I spent hours cutting out pictures from Hot Rod magazines and pinning them to my wall. I lived, loved, and dreamed about cars.”
Before coming to work at the Atomic Speed Shop, Chris was a metal fabricator. He ran plasma cutters and water jets for 8 years at Materials Fabrication and Testing. After gaining experience in metal fabrication, Chris realized his true passion lied in vehicle restoration.
When not at work, Chris is found working on his ’88 Mustang GT. A car he has owned since the age of 17. Chris also found and purchased a ’95 Mustang Cobra, identical to his dad’s old car and a 1 of 498.
On a more personal note, Chris knew his wife was “the one” when she requested to go ride on “The Dragon” for her birthday. Their honeymoon was split between time spent at the Ford F Series Super Nationals and Boling Green, Kentucky for the Ford Festival.
