Ever since I can remember I’ve always had a passion for cars. Going out to street races (NOT BY ANY MEANS A GOOD IDEA BTW) with my older cousins and uncles before I could even drive. I was hooked and it made me desperate to get my hands on a car as soon as I could legally do so. The day had come for me to get my license and my Dad decided it would be a great idea to get me a 88 Nissan Pulsar NX (an ugly sports car but a sports car none the less :D). I was a lead foot. I planted my foot down going through some curves and landed my poor car into a tree and totaled it after only having my license for one day. Needless to say I had a LONG LONG run where I was ridiculously addicted to speed and couldn’t get into enough accidents nor enough tickets.
It wasn’t till I took a break from cars about 2 to 3 years ago, then came back with a slow as hell Sentra that I realized that it wasn’t the speed that had me addicted to cars it was the scene. That speed was really just the gateway to where I am now. I Love the car scene and I love the people that I’ve met because of it. The day I was asked to join the ILDS staff, I knew I had found and secured my spot in the scene and I couldn’t be happier because of it.
Well that’s enough of that. Thanks for reading my boring mini biography but I’m glad I got a chance to share a little bit of myself with you. Now on to my dirty car 😉 and don’t forget Keep it off the streets.
