Our Story

Our Story is a continuous project, with the goal of bringing enthusiasts together by sharing our origin stories. It sounds weird, but I wanted to take cars completely out of it. By showing people and their story, it gives us a way to connect with each other without judging someone based on their build or preference in cars. I encourage you to read the profile before viewing their social media accounts. I hope to have multiple profiles added bi-weekly and  hope you enjoy this project. – Matthew Gaumont | @whoisfatmatt

“I’ve always been addicted to cars, ever since I was a kid. You know, always trying to find ways to express myself and the things I liked and cars became the way for me to express myself without feeling judged. Aside from a few friends in high school, I went into the car scene blind and started meeting other enthusiasts. If i’m ever having a rough day, I just jump in the car and it all goes out the window.”

“Back in high school, like a lot of kids, I started with a Honda. A 98 Prelude. My buddies and I would go out street racing, then head home and race around on Gran Turismo. It was also right around the time The Fast and Furious movies started coming out and the scene just exploded. The dream was always to own a Skyline, and although this is my first one, it won’t be my last one.”

My passion for cars started young. I used to watch Nascar with my dad. He did demolition derby on the weekends so I was always around them and working on different cars for as long as I can remember. In high school, my whole circle of friends were into cars and we jumped into the local street racing scene. I used to help organize weekend races and meet ups.

“I got my passion for muscle cars and exotics early, mainly through my father, God rest his soul. I’d name all the cars while driving down the road as a kid. I genuinely have a love for all cars. It’s in my blood, no matter who’s building them. I don’t have a specific preference anymore. I really look at modified cars as street art and I enjoy anything with a motor.”

“Ever since I was a young kid, I used to hang out with my uncles and cousins. We all started in the lowrider bike scene. Eventually as I got older, my passion evolved into lowrider cars but I couldn’t afford to build my own. I eventually joined the Marine corps and was stationed down south. The game was completely different. Their modified cars were all donks! You know, 28’s on Chargers, 30’s on Mustangs, and I fell in love with the family aspect of it. I eventually moved back up here and my tastes continued to evolve with the local scene.”
