About The Guy:
What's up! I'm Joe Wagner, or otherwise known to some as "Joey Dubs". I got into cars and trucks at a young age, starting with just wrenching with my much older brothers as a kid, starting our rebuild of the 51' GMC Truck that's still in peices when I was 12 (I'm 25 now... ha), and throughout my first years of driving very into car audio. I started getting my feet wet into the scene in 2006 when I started getting more into mini's while working at Stylin' Concepts/Stylin' Trucks and ended up buying my Dakota that same year. I got the truck already bagged with a few things done here and there, and throughout the years rebuilt the entire suspension, while also changing just about everything on the inside and outside of it. I began showing with some friends, which I met on forums or through work, and now am good buddies with so many good guys in the scene including all of the XG family. I am currently the Assistant Manager at 4 Wheel Parts Cleveland slinging parts.

Favorite Show Attended: With my truck, Camp and Drag, and Laws of Physics. Good times, a lot of killer rides, and fun experience. Without my truck, SEMA 2009. Definately too much to mention about that one. Being paid to go, and it being paid for didn't hurt either.
Furthest Show Attended:
Same as above.
Plans For The Future:
Weld in my new rear brackets made by Illusive Fabrication and Design so the back lays out, new custom center console, body drop, and redo the suicide doors correctly.

2015 Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport (soon to have a 6" lift, 35's and such), 1951 GMC 3/4 Ton Truck in pieces, 1977 Yamaha RD400 Cafe Racer I'm almost done with, and a 1987 Palamino Colt Pop Up Camper
