I have always been into cars ever since I remember. No one really got me into cars it was really just natural, I occasionally saw my older brother work on his car and also my cousin but other than that I pretty much learned everything on my own. After I got my first car during my sophomore year in high school that was it, I didn’t stop putting money into my cars since then.

After I got my first car during my sophomore year in high school that was it, I didn’t stop putting money into my cars since then. I moved to a different island in Hawaii that’s when I got into the Hondas! Then my goal was I wanted all three different body styles of the EKs and I wanted them all 2000 models. And that was it I just started to do anything and everything I could do to them. That’s pretty much it, it will never be done for me lol.
