Here are Skip and Judie with the real founders of Little Foreign Car Garage, their parents, on the occasion of their 50th wedding anniversary!

 


Below are the great folks at LFCG that make it all possible!


SKIPPER HULL — President

Skip

The Founder and President of Little Foreign Car Garage, Skip is a real local boy, born and raised in Waltham. Skip started LFCG as a senior in High School with his friend and partner Eric Little. Skip went off to college where, among other accomplishments, he trained at the British Leyland factory, makers of such legendary marquees as Jaguar, MG, Triumph, and Austin Healy, Rolls Royce and Bentley.

Skip then went on to grad school, and in 1972, after graduating with his degree in Engineering, during that time he started racing was trained on Porsches and then went full-time with Little Foreign Car Garage. As Skip says, "I decided to work at LFCG until I figured out what to do with my degree in Engineering. After awhile, I realized I was using my degree every day, and I'm doing what I love!"

Skip's outside interests include basketball, sailing, tennis, and gardening.
