Hello and welcome to McSpeed.com. My name is Chris McDonald. From the time I was little I was tinkering with all sorts of motorized things. My dad Lewis Lamar McDonald Sr. (1935-2003) taught me the value in fixing broken things. He gave me the inspiration, instruction, and ultimately the freedom to choose my path in life. From Lego, Soap Box Derby, bicycles...and finally four wheeled fire breathing machines....I truly love to build and fix things. I have been abundantly blessed to build, own, and share some amazing and inspirational machines and brought many left-for-dead buckets of bolts back to life. In all this I've come to know that the true blessing is the journey along the way. There are some amazing people from all walks of life that are passionate about cars. While the cars will one day end up in a scrap yard, it is the relationships we make as a legacy for one another long after we are gone that matter. I am lucky to have the most beautiful and supportive wife in the world. Now it is my turn to give back to others and inspire my own son to pursue his dreams.
I'm a contributor to Amos Publishing. In the links below I've consolidated many of my past articles that cover a wide range of automotive technical topics as well as some of my personal projects. You can also learn more about my novel The Key to My Heart.
