An Interesting Car-Related Fact About You: I grew up in a family who drove El Caminos, Chevelles, Monte Carlos, and trucks. I ended up being a black sheep with my love for EOM and JDM cars and culture. I partially restored a 1970 Monte Carlo 400 SB with my father and I have been slowly working my car. Jamil Hassam, a member of Avants and I became friends in the 8th grade due to our shared interest in games like Need For Speed Pro-street and Midnight Cub LA. Friends ever since.
