About The Guy:
I entered the custom car scene because when I was little I always used to go to local car shows and cruise-in's with my Dad. He has a '66 GTO a '72 GTO convertible and a '63 Corvair Monza. I have helped him work on his cars throughout the years and wanted to eventually have a car I could call my own. I have always been amazed at how far vehicle customization has come. Just when you think you have seen it all, someone comes out with something else in the custom scene that blows your mind and makes you wonder what's next?
I was introduced to Xtreme Gravity by a current member although he wasn't a member at that time. Honestly I didn't know much about cars before I joined this club. I knew enough to get by but I have learned so much more. I would have to say I joined to gain experience and more knowledge about cars and the custom show scene. It's nice to have a bunch of people who share your same interest that want to see you succeed in what you are passionate about. This was also the only car/truck club that seemed sincere about wanting to make it big in the scene. A few other clubs around didn't seem like they cared about showing their vehicles or trying to better their image to the area that we weren't just a bunch of punk kids with loud stereos driving around and pissing people off.
