What was the first vehicle you ever owed? Did you modify it? If so, what modifications were performed?

1989 civic 4 door, always loved that model. I remember being one of the first ones in my crew to modify it. Lowered on Tom Motorsport coilover sleeves, color match wheels, little sound system and yes … some LED lighting lol.

What will be your next performance modification/upgrade?

Low & Slow is what I prefer

What will be your next 12-volt or car audio modification/upgrade?

I work in sales for Automobility Distribution, one of Canada’s biggest 12Volt distributor. I am looking into upgrading my sound system with some Soundstream gear

Will your next visit be to a tire/wheel retailer, auto parts retailer, or a car dealership. Why?

I basically switch wheels every month so I’m pretty sure it will be wheels and tires

“All Show”, “All Go” or both? Why?

Super Low. It just looks that much better ;)
