Featured Member of the Week: John Roe

Please tell us a little bit about yourself.

I was born in Los Angeles, CA, and have a strong passion for cars and motorcycles.

How did you first get interested in this hobby/passion?

I’ve always been into bicycles, and it escalated into motorcycles.

What Rides do you currently own?

I currently own a 1972 Chevy El Camino, a 1994 Mercedes Benz E320 coupe, a 1974 Z1, a 2000 Zx 12, and a 2009 Zx 14.

What do you like most about your Cool Rides?

What I like most is the individuality of each of them. They are all unique and special in their own right.

What is the best memory you have with your favorite ride?

My best memory has to be racing my old school 74 Z1 Kawasaki. What a rush!

How do you store your ride(s) during infrequent use, and what maintenance tips can you provide for readers?

My rides are always garaged. I make sure to stay on top of all oil changes and tune-ups.

What was the first car you ever owned?

The 1962 Biscayne.

What is/was the BEST car ever made?

Any car is a good car if you keep it up, unless it’s a lemon from the factory.

What is/was the WORST car ever made?

That has to be the Studebaker.

How did you first hear about the Cool Rides Online website?

I heard about it from my daughter.

Is there anything else you’d like the Cool Rides Online members to know about you?

I love my vehicles to the point where they all have names.
