Phillip Houpt | Super Ford TV Performance Specialist

 

Phillip Houpt

Philip Houpt is the oldest of 7 children. Though his family moved frequently due to his father's work with the FBI, they finally settled in Las Cruces, New Mexico when he was 9 years old. At 15 he met his wife, Brekke, while attending Las Cruces High School, and they have been in love ever since. After Philip served a two year religious mission in France for the LDS Church they were married, and they now live in Eagle Mountain, Utah with their daughter, Arwen, and two sons, Schaeffer and Anders.

Philip graduated with a Degree in French and Arabic from Brigham Young University with plans to follow his father into the FBI, but his passion for cars eventually won out. He started in the car business  here at Larry H. Miller Super Ford in January of 2012, and he hasn't looked back. His love of cars, general laid back demeanor, and a genuine concern for people are what have made him successful. Because he particularly enjoys all things that go fast, he has come to be known as the "performance guy" here at the dealership. He has owned several performance vehicles including a Nissan 300ZX turbo and a 2010 Roush-supercharged Mustang GT. His currently drives a 2011 Mustang 5.0.

Outside of fast cars Philip enjoys playing and watching sports. His preference is basketball, having played it competitively through High School, and though he loves watching the Jazz, his love of basketball began in Florida, so he is a Miami Heat fan at heart. Having spent 10 years working for Blockbuster Video he also loves movies, with Sci-fi, thrillers, and comedies being his go-tos. He loves a wide range of music. You can catch him listening to everything from classical to hip hop depending on his mood. With all he enjoys doing though, he is happiest when doing them with his family who he will tell you are the reason and motivation for all that he does.
