It all started in the summer of 94 . . .
I had a Chevy Lumina and took it to Pitman Chevy for maintenance.
At the time i was looking to upgrade to the Chevy Z34 Lumina . . .
as I drove up to the lot, I noticed this Black ominous looking car -
parked in front of the dealership!
I did not know what it was, but it called to me me.
I was drawn towards it.
I asked the dealer what it was and he said . . . "oh, that . . it's the new Chevy Impala SS "
Hooked, I had to have one. . . no matter what the cost . . . ( well cost was a big part) . . .
'cause I could not afford a new one at the time, so a long 3 year search was on.
I found what would become the DragonSSlayer near my home, the previous owner was moving to Indianapolis and could not take the car with him.
After convincing the wife that I had to have that car, it was a done deal.
After having it for a few years & enjoying the car with no mods,
I happened to meet online . . . Randy Acorcey,
He turned me on to members in the area from NJ Beasst and Possi.
I went to my first car show at Englishtown,
and saw some of the Impala's parked on the track
and the mod bug bit me
and bit me hard !
I started with some minor mods at first:
a few emblems here and there
but none could compare to the mods I wanted !
When I went to my first national event in Michigan in 2001, I was hooked.
I started to mod out the whole car
from the wheels to paint, sound system, lambo doors the works.
I won my first show at Super Chevy at Maple Grove.
Due to my love and passion for the car show scene
I was elected president of the club in 2005 -I have been their president ever since !
My love for the Impala SS continues to this day, always trying to raise the bar for mods.
Who knows what I will have in store for the DragonSSlayer, but what ever it is,
it will be awesome !
