Cassidy’s take on the scene.

Why or when do you find yourself driving slow?
I drive slow almost everywhere I go. The looks, thumbs ups && pictures are some perks of driving slow haha, but once in awhile I like to enjoy banging some gears. (;

What made you decided to pick your car you own own?
It seemed perfect for me. I clicked with the car from day one.

Are you more of a build sell repeat person or build keep forever person?
I consider myself to be a build keep forever person considering this is my first car. I can’t picture myself without the car. I love it way too much. There is no possible way I could part with my build, I am too attached lol .

What do you prefer function or form?
Form with a little bit of function. I love both. I love seeing a clean car slammed to the ground but at the same time seeing a car set up for the race track makes me want to build a car strictly for function.

How long have you been in the car scene?
I’ve been surrounded by cars my whole life. At a young age, my father owned/ raced 358 & 410 sprint cars. He also collected several corvettes back in the day. So, the passion for cars has always been there. My true obsession with the import scene didn’t start until 2008 when I was just 14 years old. Ever since then I have been hooked.

Stuff you learned during your build.
I’ve learned so much from my build. The number one thing that I have learned is to build your car for yourself & yourself only. You will not please everyone & you never will. I built my car to stand out & be different. Some people like my car and others do not. To me it doesn’t matter because at the end of the day its my car & I LOVE IT.
