Biography:

 

With multiple automotive builds under his belt, experience as a regional chair of the Corvette Club Of America, and a collection of modified vehicles, Harold Atkins brings a great deal of knowledge, experience, and excitement to shows and sponsors. As a young boy, Harold’s was surrounded with his father’s car enthusiasm, car collection, custom car shows and drag racing. Harold spent countless hours surrounded by the American car culture and, like his father, took a great interest in the various automotive brands and their products. Despite various builds, the BMW below serves as his crowning achievement. By combining his contacts and creativity, Harold was able to build a truly unique M5.

 

Throughout 2013 car show season, Harold’s M5 was presented at national shows, localized social events, and on the world wide web. The highlight of the year took place at the MPACT 2013 show, where his M5 was adjacent to the Carlisle Performance & Style Tent and, despite hundreds of heavily modified vehicles was awarded “BEST in SHOW”.
