Chris has been wrenching on cars for 35 years and racing for the last 25. With each new project, challenges are faced and overcome while valuable experience is gained. Teamed with a small crew in a proper garage, Ruffian Cars expects to build cars more quickly and at the highest standards!
Ruffian Cars gets its name from the famous "Ruffian" American thoroughbred race horse that won 10 consecutive races from 1972 to 1975 and made it look easy. It was the perfect name for a race inspired 1970 fastback Mustang that defied the norm and laid the groundwork for all future Ruffians.
Road racing, drag racing, autocross and off-roading, Ruffian is inspired by it all. It's incredibly cool to pull visuals and technologies from purpose built race vehicles and bring them back to the street where it all started.
