We saved it and invested our money. It keeps crashing , But we did not take care. We were trapped in the snow in Canada. That was our first child. "
Mathison owns the second-hand Audi 90 in the late 1980s, the first car he bought himself. He recalled: "My girlfriend's father drove Audi, and I was in awe. My father also had an Audi 5000. I couldn't afford those high-end ones, but I had a second-hand Audi 90." "It looks very sporty. It has a The sports kit looks so mean, I like it, and I was very excited when I suddenly took an Audi car. This is important. "
After Mathison graduated from college, he bought Audi with the money he had from owning a fence and trim company during his college years. "In the summer, I and my partner built fences and decks. We made money very quickly. We did a good job, so I saved money, which helped me afford that car. "

That was when I first started in the entertainment business, I started to do some modeling and a little action. So , You will feel cool. "He said. "I've always been lucky. Cars have always been my favorite and enjoyment. It's fun to go back and discuss some of these with you, because I have forgotten a lot before you ask, it's important; this is your journey."
Mathison praised the car that was put in with the crew. "It's like when I wake up in the entertainment industry and see everyone driving and then getting in there, learning and getting ready, some crew members will talk to you about their Mustangs, I will check it and I will say," God! "I don't even know the whole world," he said.
Mathison's favorite road trip is the one he moved from New York to Los Angeles and married between the two.
"My wife and I lived in New York at the time. We're getting married in Colorado and then moving to Los Angeles. I'm leaving the soap opera.

We met everyone there, got married, and then continued from Colorado to California. Road trip. That was one of the best times of my life. It was a cool road trip. It took us time to watch crazy things and live in a motel. It was a very unforgettable time together. "
Madison Drive Toyota 4Runner It took a total of three weeks, including the middle wedding.
