Hello, and welcome to another jam-packed edition of The Hot Seat. In case you missed last month's story, each month we take a person who has been a vital part, a mentor, or made some significant impact in the scene, and expose him or her and make them blush for your reading enjoyment.
So sit back, light a match, do a courtesy flush, and enjoy this month's installment.
* If you have an idea for someone you want to see in The Hot Seat, email email@example.com with your suggestions, questions, or comments, and maybe your favorite person will be our next victim!
This month, we bring you the uber-famous Jamey "HandMade" Jordan. If you don't know him yet, you're about to know it all!
Jamey Patrick Jordan
Place of Birth:
Welder and sheetmetal nerd
Who are you?:
I am Jamey Jordan //NC\\ Mississippi
Q: What is in your toilet tower/lavatory library? Be honest, not the obvious ones like Mini Truckin', we want to know about the US Weekly, Better Homes & Gardens and the Luscious Large Woman mags.
A: Ok you caught me. Besides MT I do have, US Weekly, and of course Rod and Custom.
Q: Tell us one thing people either don't know about you or would be very surprised to hear?
A: I really am a shy person who just enjoys watching his friends be the center of attention.
Q. Do you have any tattoos? If so, what is it, and do you regret it?
A: No tats, just a bunch of welding burns.
Q. Do you consider yourself "regular"?
A: Sure, I poop every morning right when I get to the shop.
Q. What is your favorite show of all time?
A: Some folks call it Showfest, but where I come from it's called "Greenville." I've been to shows all over the country and nothing will ever top it! I know it got a bad rep the last few years, but in its day there was truly no finer show! I really miss "Greenville" and can't wait to hit up it's return in 2010.
Q. What got you into the scene?
A: The love of playing in the shop. We couldn't afford anything but trucks and Robbie Odom's Dad built us a shop and it just blew up from there.
Q. Tell us about your new company? These bomber seats you're building are super badass!
A: The name of the company is HandMade Seat Co. It's all about the right look, I can't really explain it, I just have a different style than most and the seats help me express it the best way I can.
Q. Your red Toyota was featured in this fine magazine a few times and we know you have been building killer trucks for over a decade. Each time you take it to the next level, so what's coming up next?
A: Who knows? I really wish I had a plan, but right now I'm just turning out as much fab work as I can and trying to make everyone happy!
