What car would you like to buy next?: I have so many different cars in mind. I was all about show cars with this eclipse so I’d probably go performance next.
I got into the scene about 3 years ago when my boyfriend took me to a cupcake meet in Dallas and then Stancenation also in Dallas. I enjoyed the show so much that I started looking into all the different things that could be done to my Eclipse. I read forums for hours on end just soaking in as much as I could, learning and trying to figure out what I wanted to do because I definitely wanted a part of this and I wanted to be in those shows like the other cars I saw.
For 3 years I had been buying part after part, slowly putting it all together. I swapped my springs in the front and rear on my coils to lower my car down to about a half inch off the ground. Sure enough, everything started breaking and getting torn from my car but I accept it as the lifestyle and will not be raising my car any time soon!
Finally, I had registered for my first show ever, Stancenation FT Worth and I got accepted! It was a proud moment for me. Although I didn’t win any awards at the event, the experience of just being present and talking with other enthusiasts really is the reward. Next I’ll be showing at Slammedenuff Dallas and I can’t wait to have that experience all over again! Truly this is what I am happiest doing.

Giulio’s verdict: ……………To be honest guys, I don’t really have much to say about this. Caitlon’s build is just so clean and what she has said has just touched me with her passion that she adopted after experiencing a car event. I wish her all the best of luck for future events.
