For this month we thought we would take a different twist. Geno and Brian are brothers-brothers with similar rides, a similar upbringing, and similar interests. With all of this in common, where did they go different? What made their rides take on two lives of their own? Here we dig deeper into the lives of Geno and Brian to find out who their mother gave more hugs to.

Geno
Geno's truck was truly a collective effort between his brother and friends. Brian got him bit by the mini-truck bug and was there the entire way through to make sure that the truck was finished. Knowing what Geno knows now, he would've liked to body-drop the truck from the get-go. You don't always come up with your correct vision until the truck is almost done. A lot of the time you end up going in reverse (one step forward and two steps back) when changing a big mod. Many times, while Geno was at work his brother would be at the shop sanding away and getting dirty to ensure that Geno's truck would be done. Now, isn't that sweet?

How did you get involved in the scene?: My brother, Brian, got me hooked on it.
Coke or Pepsi?: Coke. You can mix sh@# with Coke.
How long to build?: 10 months
What's next?: Body drop, then an older 'Burban or Tahoe.
What problems did you face?: None. I'm not married.
Do you have a nickname?: G-money
Would you ever pose for Playboy?: If it was next to my truck.
Who's smoother with the ladies?: Brian. He scored a wife.
Boxers or briefs?: Boxers
Put these in order - girl, truck, brother, beer: Brother, truck, girl, beer
Who's truck is doper?: Mine (No hesitation in his answer either.)
Who's truck is lower?: Dead even, but I roll 20s.
Vida Guerra or Pam Anderson?: Vida
