Eric grew up in Western Massachusetts as the son of Paul Curran who lives and breaths cars. He and his father owned and operated the car dealership Performance Motoring in Hadley MA for over 20 years. Together they bought and sold cars as well as ran a large service department managing over 150 customers a week. The two of them also built a race car at the dealership in which they both raced in the 90’s. Eric focused hard on the business and racing for the last 20 years and made them both very successful. Many years later Paul was looking to retire and Eric’s professional racing career was taking off. They chose to sell of the dealership in 2011.
Eric is currently a professional race car driver for the Action Express Racing/Wheelen Engineering team in the IMSA Tudor Prototype series in which he just finished 3rd in the drivers championship with Action Express Racing. Eric has been racing sports cars, stock cars and everything in between for the last 21 years. Eric was prepped and ready to utilize his dealer and racing relationships to build West Coast Exotic Cars with long time friend, teammate and partner Boris Said.
The idea of working with Boris, long time friend and teammate along with cool exotic cars is the perfect fit. Then to add our friends and relationships we have through racing to the mix to crate the ideal business plan. I am very excited to launch West Coast Exotic Cars and run a business in an industry we know and love.
