For me FnF and Hotwheels would have to be the major factors. I watched the shit out of Tokyo Drift

Parents, grandparents, other family members, hot wheels. Those are the primary factors. Obviously there's been other factors over the years, but yeah.

The most exciting car that my parents have is an E350 with the v10, but my dad's business partner has an all original Duster!

Dad always had a love for cars, and Father like Son. Fast and Furious also had a big impact on my Car likings.

Same with Hotwheels and my Step Dad, when he past away he left me about 600 Hotwheels. Some getting Lost, some being Stolen, some being Crushed.. But I still have about 400 sometin.

Well, my first word was "car"


My parents and grandparents and uncles and such aren't really into cars.  My family is into boats and skiing. I had to teach myself all I know about cars, haha. I've just always had this, passion. Towards cars. Maybe it was I the Hotwheels

I've grown up with cars over the years. Dad has had a Chevelle, Camaro, Nova, a few different Mustangs. I've rebuilt a Charger, Challenger, and a Fastback Mustang.

I've personally owned the following:

1995 Mazda Rx7
2002 Ford Mustang GT Convertible
2006 Chevrolet Silverado
2012 Mustang GT
2006 Dodge Magnum
2005 Dodge Magnum R/T
2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2009 Nissan GTR, it isn't mine..but I have access to it whenever.

So yeah, I've spent lots of time around cars and what not.

I crashed pretty bad in motocross where I ended up giving up the sport. I still needed an adrenaline fix so we got into drifting.

i cant say fast and furious like yall cause i didnt watch any of them until a few years ago. my family isnt, how should i say this... "mechanically inclined" so i didnt grow up around it. i had hot wheels as a kid but they were just toys to me...
but when i was younger i was always friends with older kids and when i was 13 several of my friends had cars. and i learned to drive from them and ever since i first got behind the wheel of a car i was hooked.

Well, i was born in the back of a 69 Camaro and it helped that everyone in my family was into some type of motorsports. I was actually into drag racing at first and went though a 96 Foxbody with a 350 SBC then onto a 94 Chevy Camaro SBC on Nitrous when i was 15, to my Current Drag ride. Then i found Forza Drifting though a Team called Xenon and the rest is history.

A few pics of the Shop
