002 - To each his own.

So I love looking through photos from car meets worldwide, and seeing the many different tuning styles that people do when building a car. At work, I'm often made fun of for what I think looks good, or what I think is cool. Perhaps it's the fact that I enjoy the more obscure cars. Or perhaps I like things that other people think are "outplayed", "Overdone" or "Too-Cliche"...but most of it has to do with the fact that I love import cars, and I work at a GM dealership in a GM town in the state where all of the big 3 are headquartered.

Either way, I don't let people influence my taste in cars. I love wagons. The more obscure, the better.
Cars like the Dodge Aries K wagon, the Volvo 240GL Turbo wagon, the Opel Kadett 1900 wagon or the Chevrolet Monza Shooting Brake. I love them. Something about the wagon shape, the practicality of it...I find that awesome.

The things one can do to such cars makes all the difference. Wheels, suspension, restoration..
It can take an otherwise dull and boring grocery-getter and transform it into an amazing, show-winning car.
