"All Show", "All go" or Both, Why?: Both! Everyone wants their ride to look clean and be fast at the same time. Many try... few succeed!

Any Shout Outs?: First and foremost to PASMAG! My best friend Mike aka Makadeli, if it weren't for you... None of this would be possible! To my family and friends who've always stuck by my side and dealt with my late night mods! My girlfriend Crystal, and to the Haters out there... "to each their own" If you don't like it... Ohh Well... I do! "Do Work Son... Crew!"
