Komo-Well Im 19 now(as of last month) And I moved to Florida in 2002 and never really knew what I was(racialy) So when I did move here everyone asked me what I was, not knowing people made guesses and observations. One of which was that I looked like an Eskimo. Ive been know better as Komo then my real name since 7th grade, Im in my second year of College now. Turns out Im a Big MUT-3 Types of Indian,Tomahawks not tech support-1 Part Mexican- 1 Part English- 1 Part Austrian.
G-is from my Moms maiden name of Gomez
and the 2 is my favorite number, and what Rusty Wallace Raced under when I, more or less, cared for Nascar.
My daughter and friends at work kinda started calling me daddyo because of my penchant for wearing bowling shirts and two-toned shoes and listening to Royal Crown Revue. Then they found out about my addiction to cars and ratfink decorated office and someone said "Oh, thebigdaddyo!" (in reference to big daddy Roth)
I drew a quick shitty drawing of a slammed merc and titled it 'The Lowshow", when I started pinstriping, I just stared signing my work LOWSHOW, and have been going with it ever since.

Well me, unfortunatly, had not spent a whole lot of time searching around on here, So We had just bought a 1927 Model T coupe that the guy called a "Ratrod", Not fully knowing how you guys felt about the word, I thought, "Hey That might be a unique name for me.", Turns out not many people like my name.... I do get crap from alot of people too.
from some girls in Gig Harbor 25 years ago, there was two Rob's . so I had had red hair, they just called me Rob-Red.

I used to drive a tri-axle gravelle truck, and it was said that mine was the fastest of the fleet, hence I gave my truck the name, Hyway Hauler, and it was also my CB handle.

Always wanted to build a high compression flathead ford...somehow I got sidetracked and a hemi related name would be more appropriate. Guess I'll just have to build me a flathead later to make things right
Sounded cool I wanted to use my real nick name but somebody else had it so here I be.
Got an '84 Sedan DeVille for free (had a 4100 V8, enough said) about 5 years ago and promptly dropped it and painted it black. Drove it everywhere I could point the front end. Combine that with my unnatural ability to look like the Devil hisself in most photographs, and came up with Devilleish. Also cut up the 1/4 panel badges to read DeVil.
Well my initials are BK, I have always been the one to try to figure out how stuff works and would or could work better which led to many busted and bloody knuckles. My wife would introduce me to her friends who came over as I was working on something as "Busted Knuckles" . Thats the story...

"greaseball" on account of not washing the vaseline/Royal Crown/tres flores outta my longish hair before bedtime...
It made my pillow just DISGUSTING... Sleeping on just a big ball O' grease! It took ruining a couple pillows before I realized plastic-bagging them BEFORE the pillow cover went on was the way to go-
But damned if my hair didn't look dapper every single day!!
(I don't use hair grease anymore, but missed the "name-change" option before I came up w/anything better!)
