Great story. There's a very good chance the guy that owned that custom short two hubcaps is a member on this site. How cool would it be to find dude and right the wrong?

Well, in your defense,you were young,drunk,sleep deprived and under duress,I believe if it went to court you would be acquitted.

You know; the Scrape Zephyr was one of the "most famous customs built in the 1990s," and it only had 2 ripples, on its good side. Hmmmm...
Nice piece of writing boss.
