Reason for building: My father Greg has been a mechanic his whole life, and owned a shop in pismo Beach for 20+ years. Before that, he worked at a 76 service station with my grandpa that they ran. So it was no surprise that I followed in their steps. He has restored cars from the ground up, and sold them at shows like Barret Jackson. I've always loved seeing how he turned an ugly, beat up car into a beautiful piece of rolling art. Ever since I was a young boy, I grew up going to car shows with my dad, and hanging out at his shop helping get tools for him and watching him work on customers cars. As I got older, I only grew more fond of car building. When I was around 13 years old, my grandpa passed away. My dad and I completely restored his old 88' el Camino together, that we had inherited. That was my first car, that I drove to high school when I turned 16. That was my first taste of actually having a hand in modding a car. Ever since then, I was hooked.Why did you choose this car: I chose this car because my parents have the same car. When I was 21, I totaled my Cadillac CTS (drunk driver ran a red light). So my mom let me drive her 7 series for a week, after that, I fell in love with it, and started saving up to buy my own. How long did it take to build: I bagged it in 2013. Other than that, I have been working on everything on it for the past year. Everything from the bag install and trunk setup, to the the interior tear down and rebuild, and the body work and paint, was done in my driveway/garage by my dad and I. This car has never seen a shop, other than to get aligned and tires mounted, in the 6 years I've owned it. I take a lot of pride in knowing this car was self built, with my own hands. When you build a car yourself out of passion, you take away something from the experience, that no amount of money can buy.
