Cocos passion for engineering and motor vehicles came from his dad. His father had served his time at Rolls-Royce and as a biker had spent many years working on and customising bikes. This influence rubbed off on Coco. His current bike is a work of art and is blow painted in Led Zeppelin art work. Nice.
Cocos dad bought him his first" custom car" mag then Volksworld as he noticed Coco was always playing with his ZZ top album covers with the hot rods on them.
Cocos working career started by washing cars in the summer at his local Mercedes garage. Cocos first Beetle was funded by washing German tin for two years.
One day the apprentice got the sack and Coco was asked if he fancied it and jumped at the opportunity and began his career as a Mercedes mechanic.
