Makin' Some Noise
Horacio Lujan's '00 Chevy Silverado
We Say: When Horacio started working on his truck, he gave it a 3/4 drop to make it better than factory. Since he worked at an audio shop, he was savvy enough to add in a nice system that is able to knock out loud tunes. While rolling around in the static-dropped Chevy, he got clowned by someone in a 'bagged truck. From that point on, Horacio has kept his game face on and made major progress on his truck.
What He Wins: Hours of entertainment in the pocket of his pants. That's right, we are giving Horacio the means to play pocket pool anytime he wants. Plus, if anybody walks in on him while he is polishing his...skills...he could tell them how good he is getting at eight ball. Though it doesn't come with any instructions, it does make some cool noises.
