    Hi,

    I have been gone for a few years, had a question regarding a magazine shoot with AllPro in 2006.

    I hope to wheel again soon, truck has some issues.

    I have been going through a nasty divorce, moved to Central CA; Goleta, CA currently working and love it up here. I do have to pick up Timothy 14 every other week which is a drag in commute almost 200 miles each way.

    Miss some of the old Demello Crew hope to meet you guys one day.
    -Mike

    LOL, I have already spent enough on my truck since I bought it; I have nearly 195k miles on my truck and it still turns heads.

    As long as I still own my truck, it never end.

    Thanks,

    It's no street Queen for sure, I got many scars to prove it.

    I have future plans, but other issues take precedence; I will update my profile as time allows.
