Bobby Weaver


Bobby's interest in cars started out with a love for 1970's and 80's Ford Bronco trucks for off-roading. In addition to mudding, he's also always had a fascination for the adrenaline rush of tail-happy, overpowered sports cars. His dream is to one day own a Shelby Cobra replica. Bobby was all about the Fords; until he drove Merritt's BMW 318ti with an M3 drivetrain swap. After taking her road legal go-kart for a spin he developed a sudden appreciation for smaller displacement, high-horsepower machines that embody European engineering. Later that year he purchased his own turbocharged 332ti. The rest is bank account-draining history.


Merritt Hansen


Merritt's love affair with fine European vehicles began in her childhood. Her dad owned several European sports cars over the years. These included one of the first Porsche 930 / 911 turbos in the US as well as leasing an Avus Blue E36 M3. A few exhilarating rides in those cars set the stage for her obsession as an adult. That coupled with her propensity for taking things apart led to the creation of Prussian Motors.
