Jerome is a lifelong gearhead whose best memories have always been linked to cars. At age 17, his first mistress was an Italian in the form of a 1971 Lancia Fulvia, followed by more costly Europeans, represented today by a 1961 Ferrari 250 GTE. His first engine rebuild was the 350-ci small-block in his 1970 Buick Skylark, which he acquired during a seven-year stint in New York City. Now based in Paris, Hardy enjoys the sheer size of his Mercury Grand Marquis Colony Park wagon and the unwashed 1939 Packard Super Eight he purchased in Portland, OR, and now wheels around Paris.
