It’s nice to be kinda, semi, somewhat Famous!!!

It’s kinda car related cause i’m either in the car .. or in front of the car. LOL . Close enough right? Other then that don’t really have much to update.
Although it’d be nice to have me up on the billboards getting recognized not only for building pretty decent cars but to be famous!! Aahh.. the life.
Hopefully one day it’ll come true and people will know my name and relate it to a face.
Anyways haha: here’s some having fun with pics.

Auto Salon – Australia cover!!!

Got to love the media and the internet. Auto Salon contacted me a few months back and was very impressed with my build that they searched forums and websites for my car and I gotta give it them for being persistent. I almost thought the initial email was someone pulling a prank on me. But the email checked out and the staff in Australia is amazing! they set up the photographer and wrote a bang up article … Love the pics and layout of the magazine. Really well thought out.
Here’s Cover number 2 for me that’s on the other side of the planet! Thanks Auto Salon! On to the pics.. no more jibber jabber.

MY BMW Changes..

As you’ve seen i recently did a mini photo exposé on the M3 with the Volk LE37’s and just wanted a little change up. So that’s why i wanted to capture the car in that state. Now with that done. I’ve opted for new shoes for the car. All i took was cell phone shots of the day at TWS but hopefully i can set up with my buddy Joey to do another mini shoot to get some decent pics up soon

“How’s it going Billy, sorry to bother I was just reading ur blog. I speak to your cousin Alan a lot on aim. Well I just wanted to say Thank you, when I read ur article on superstreet that motivated me to start my project. Seeing your car gave me that push I needed to never stop modding. I spent a lot of money and the sad part is I know I’m gonna keep spending more lol. We need more people like you in this scene. Once again sorry to bother. “

My M3 shoot .

Had lunch and chilled with the homies Jay and Joey yesterday and had asked Joey the night before if we could do a shoot since i was getting a new set of wheels and wanted some shots of the car the way it is now. He agreed and the shots came out a lot better then he thought they would it being a black car and we were loosing sun light pretty fast. But i love how the pics came out!! Thanks for taking the time to take pics Joey.
