On our auto inflated trip in the USA, we came across a small chop shop owned by a cool guy named Matt. Matt owns Sled Alley, a small but impressive panel shop in Detroit where a modified car fanatic can go and get his or her ride slammed, smoothed, chopped and painted. He’ll even do a major engine/ driveline transplant just to guarantee you’re smoking the rears as you leave! Read More →

They’re created from experiences in the field of desire as we make our way through previous visions such as a modified 1968 Toyota, Jags, Fords, a t-bucket and 34 rod John had previously owned.
