    First of all ,Im overcompensateing for the lack of package.
    I am emotionally stunted due a divorce when I was young and years of self abuse
    I can not stand any longer the flybys by riceburners and mustangs with loud exhaust
    They will pay dearly for my mommy not hugging me enough when I was little.

    The rest is just balogny I say as a smokescreen .

    I've always been fascinated by mechanical things. Modding and racing just allows me to learn and have fun with it.

    Oh and it gives me something to blow money on lol

    It's an addiction we all have to mod our cars, some people are addicted to crack, some to gambling, some to alcohol, all of us here are just plain addicted to modding our cars, it's one big pi$$ing contest to see who's got the bigger juevos and the baddest car out there. Whether its new or old, GM, Ford, or Mopar. That's how I've looked at it. If we were fine with our cars from the showroom then we'd all just be a bunch of boring people who like boring plain things....but that's not who we are, we're gearheads 'til the day we die! HEY! I drive a Mustang with loud everything on it!

    Because I can never leave well enough alone. But if it was well enough I guess I wouldn't be changing it.
    It's just not the car. My basement I am told is awesome, but to me it's never done and there are always changes I want to make. Same with the interior of the house, landscaping. It's an illness

    I've modded almost every car I owned that I gave a sh!t about. I've always wanted to learn about engines and cars. I always wanted to race.

    When I went to Bill's Zmax rental (3 years ago) Nick, Jason and Bill talked me into making a pass. After that I was hooked. I started helping Nick with stuff and he started handing down parts. My 215mm rear I got because nick was gonna throw it away!

    Now it's all about going faster and the evolution of my car and nick's car. Logging tunes, tweaking the current set up and also researching and planning the next build.

    The amount of knowledge I've gained over the past few years is staggering. To see how far I could push the stock 5.7 bottom end was a goal, and now I'm moving on to the next stage.

    The people, the car, the process. That's why I mod my car.


    Oh and I'm a speed freak.

    I've always had fast bikes, fast boats, and fast women. Fast cars fit in well with the rest and I absolutely refuse to grow up!


    Personal Best: coming soon!!
