He once drove 2 laps around the old Nurburgring in his Alfa, scaring himself silly.
 
He has owned a 1967 Alfa Romeo GTV, a 1963 Porsche 356B, a 1936 MG-TA, and two Birkins. He enjoys NASA HPDE weekends in the SE and Mid-Atlantic regions, and occasionally visits NASA-Texas for an event.

Jorge Rubio, Technical Associate

A native of Chihuahua, Mexico, Jorge began learning his automotive skills from his father, who owned an auto repair shop, Rubio's Automotive.  After many years of practice Jorge is still studying and advancing his skills on a daily basis.

When Jorge entered the U.S., he attended Exclusive High School in Las Cruces, NM, and  two years before graduating, became a U.S. Citizen in 1986.  He now lives in Arlington, Texas with his wife and two children.  Since 2003, Jorge has developed many new skills in the areas of automotive repair, modification and restoration, including electrical, fabrication, mechanical and cosmetic skills for paint and body work.

Since 2008 Jorge has been working on and assembling Birkin cars for Texas Motor Works, and he is also involved in maintaining other cars in inventory.  Jorge has proved to be very passionate about working on the Sevens, which makes for a win-win relationship!

 

Cynthia Brink    

Cynthia Brink, Marketing

Apart from running a small business, Cross Culture Communications, Cynthia has been asked to assist with Texas Motor Works' marketing efforts.  Her automotive knowlege was gained through osmosis from growing up with a father who was always, shall we say, "passionate" about cars.  ("Girls, don't scratch the paint!")  She doesn't claim to be a  Birkin expert, and she hasn't been to South Africa yet, but she likes G-forces, is internationally-minded and enjoys helping put TMW's best face forward. Please contact her with suggestions for improving this site!  cbrink@crossculturecommunications.com
