Q&A

Q: Congratulations! You finally won, did you expect to do so well? You've been a front runner in the voting longer than I can remember!
A: I wasn't expecting a win considering I've been on almost every poll for ROTM. I'm happy with being nominated and recognized. Thanks for all the long term supporters and current ones too.

Q: If you couldn't vote for yourself, who would you have voted for?
A: I nominated and voted for IvoryPearl07G this month.

Q: What first got you into modified cars?
A: I've always been interested in cars but more in the import scene starting back in 1996. This year will be the 10th annual NOPI Nationals trip!

Q: Have you always been into Hondas, and what previous rides have you owned?
A: I love Hondas! I appreciate other cars too, and I give credit where credit is due. I drove a '88 Camry to start. My sister bought a '98 Civic EX, so I messed with that a little bit. She would let me take it out and modify it, b/c she knew how much I wanted a Honda. Then my parents bought me a new 2000 Maxima SE. I couldn't really do much to it, so after driving it for a few years, I took over my brother's '99 Si. My bro and his girlfriend paid for a lot of the mods, but I put in most of the labor. The '99 Si was giving me issues, so I traded in for a brand new 2003 Si. Since 2007, I have had a few daily driver cars:1992 Paseo, 1993 240SX coupe, and current 1995 Integra sedan.

Q: What are you goals for the car, I understand you have a new build coming?
A: Power wise:Whatever I can get out of pump gas and possibly a race gas tune also. I want to beat a sports bike on the streets. Looks:new wheels and maybe black roof. Racing:I like drag racing, but I want to do more autocrossing in the future. Upgrades:This motor setup will be it for now. A few suspension/brake mods here and there. There won't be any major upgrades, b/c I'm coming to a stopping point(at least that's what I say for now).

Q: Besides cars, do you have any other hobbies or interests?
A: I've been playing a lot of video games lately but mainly car interests though.

Q: I understand you guys are selling HIDs, anything else up your sleeve for the future?
A: Everything is in the works, so I can't say what will happen. It will definately be known when something does pop off.

Q: Again, congratulations! Anything else you'd like to say or anyone you'd like to thank?
A: Thanks to TennSpeed, family and friends, all the supporters, haters, and people who could care less. I don't see myself getting out this car scene, so I want to grow along with this scene.
