Like many young boys, Hot Wheels and model cars were Brad's first customs. Then came bicycles, because it was as close to driving as he could get. When Brad found BMX it was about the competition, but also these were modified bikes and he knew that was cool.

The day of freedom really came when he was handed his drivers license. His dad, Harley announced that a friend had a car for sale, maybe Brad was interested? A 1967 Chevelle SS 396, no more need be said yet another motorhead was born. With a Big Block Chevy at his command and the bold SS emblazoned on the car he was gone in a haze of smoke.
