Rich Hills is the guy that makes sure your parts make it from us to you. You probably haven’t talked to him, you might not have even heard of him. But if there’s a guy that can squeeze the value out of an opportunity it’s Rich.
Take his car for example, a ‘97 Volkswagen Jetta. Let’s start with the cost, he paid $200 for the car with a blown transmission. He then bought a $50 Jetta with a good transmission, swapped it, sold the junked car for $200 and walked out of the whole transaction with a running car for $50. He drives that car every day.
Although, like many owners, he couldn’t leave good enough alone. He went through, added an exhaust where there wasn’t one before, threw on some lowering coilovers and replaced ALL the lights in the car with Euro lights. That means they didn’t fit, he had to cut his radiator support just to get the lights in. But hey he got some awesome orange running lights out of the deal.
If there was a Museum of Proof and exhibit about car culture at FCP, Rich would be on display. He’s driven in every way, and we’re happy he’s here helping us and you.
