Special Thanks From Owner
“My daughter, Kayla Jade, for being the coolest girl on the face of the earth, my parents for always being there for me, Brad Knott, Matt Dixon, Bone/TJ, Richard, Al and Chris, Seth of Twisted Minis, all the guys who put on truck shows because their efforts often go overlooked. Thanks to all of my friends who would hang out while I was working on the truck.”
