Special Thanks From Owner
“I want to thank Richy and Kenny Strong for taking me under their wing and really getting me into building trucks. I have to give a huge thank you to Josh Jones for a killer paintjob and really helping me get the truck finished in the last couple of months. I also want to thank my beautiful girlfriend Jenny who has stuck by my side throughout the build and who has encouraged me to finish my dream once and for all. Thank you to everyone who has lent a hand in the build, and thanks to Twisted Creations.”
