About Jay "Da Joker" Kurtz:
My name is Jay Kurtz, some call me "Jay da Joker", I have been into the custom scene for since 1994. My first custom ride was a 1986 Mazda B2200 with drop spindles and blocks in rear, custom interior, aluminum rims and sound system. I've been know to "light up" everything I owned, with neons or Led's. In the past I have had a couple Mazda Trucks, a Custom Honda CBR 900rr, and a tricked out 1979 Ford Econoline van.
I got into the custom ride scene because it was a positive display of ones talents. I have always liked custom rides for as long as I can remember. I joined Xtreme Gravity July 2011 and am currently the Vice President. I enjoy this club and every member that makes this club. The hard work that I have seen each member put into their ride makes me so proud to be apart of it. The enthusiasm and dedications that everyone has is displayed in each of the members custom unique rides.
