About The Guy:

My name is Michael Kirkpatrick. I got into the custom scene 17 yrs ago when I saw my home towns car cruise. It all started with competing in stereo competitions and I decided to learn how to do body work to customize my first truck, so it looked as good as it sounded. From there the bagged mini scene came along so I bought the s-10 I have now and it just took off with modifying everything I could. I pursued a career in the automotive world with body shops from my area and ended up working for RadAir Complete Car Care as an ASE certified mechanic.

I am the newest member to Xtreme Gravity family. I petitioned the club 2 months ago and became a member Oct 2013. I have attended many shows alone and seen them as a club with great attitudes, nice rides and ambition to do great. I am looking forward and excited to be a part of this great family of XG members, and helping with the growth of an awesome club.

Mike
