Profiles of Young Car Enthusiasts: 15 Year Old Julian

Profiles of Young Car Enthusiasts:  15 Year Old Julian

The profile of young car enthusiasts continues with 15 year-old Julian. He was featured in “The Kids are Alright”  in the November/December 2019 issue of Hagerty Drivers Club magazine. 

That article helped put many of my fears to rest that the collector car hobby would not survive once us boomers leave this earth.  

Highlights of that article were covered in my blog “The Future of the Car Hobby.”  In it, I shared the trends in vehicle buying for millennials and the types of older cars that caught their interest. Hagerty’s research was extensive and informative. I recommend you check it out.

Learn more about Julian below:

Julian Angeles

Age:  15

From:  Montibello, California

Job:  Student

Ride:  1981 Toyota Starlet (see picture below)

Dream Car:  1989-1991 Honda Civic in “Booger Green” with a B18 engine (this is the dual overhead cam performance engine used by Honda).

Julian says “I was always part of my Dad’s builds.  He was always asking me, ‘what color?  What wheels should we put on here?’  The first motor I ever built was when I was 13.”

He is in the auto shop program at his high school, no doubt reinforcing the basics he picked up while working with his Dad.

Supporting Automotive Youth Programs

While Julian has a great mentor in his Dad, I am here to support other people seeking help/advice through my blogs, personal mentoring and the Hagerty Automotive Youth Programs (see related story HERE).

This support for the Hagerty programs comes from the sales of Vehicle Nanny Merchandise.  All profits of those sales go directly to Hagerty.

Thank you for your interest! Look for another youth profile soon.
