Just wanted to give a little history of me and who I am. First of all many of you guys have seen my 2013 Abarth build and since my first car I've been the same with them all. Buy parts before you get the car and then mod them like crazy lol. I pretty much was born and raised around cars. Went to my first street race at 11 years old with my cousin (he had a big block s10 truck) and have been hooked. Have a new ctsv that is pretty insane and still hit the races up.

Over the years I've been on a lot of forums helping people out. I'm a little guy just like you here and try to focus on items that would help out the community. I started and run a trailblazer ss forum www.tbssowners.com and also started and run a ctsv forum www.ctsvowners.com I've set up a national event for the past 7 years where I choose a race track and pay for it so all members from my forum can come together to have a good time. Funny thing many of us do not know each other besides a user name behind a computer but having the same car passion it brings us together.

In this section I will have some custom parts they will be little items here and there nothing major but as on my other websites that I sell on I've never had a complaint and my customer service is great. I'm around 24/7 you can call or text me at 415-519-2432 if you have any questions about the FIAT or the ctsv or any gm truck.

I don't know it all and have learned a lot from my build on my car but for my section I'm always open to new ideas. If I don't know something I'll need your guys help also. That way it makes it better for all of us.

Oh and the ctsv... here is a ride out we had few weeks ago. Car is a beast :)

Glad to see you've finally made the jump to vendor status. After seeing all your mods, it's about time you've tried to earn some money back for more mods (that we all want, I'm sure).

Loving your CTS-V and your son is just so much thug. ::p

Are you going to be selling the Double Din installation kit with the air vents? Or do you know where to get them less expensive, $200 is pretty crazy.

NORCAL SS

The place that did my gauge pod molds I'm selling for our cars i spoke to about the double din kit. They said the main thing thats a issue is the vents. also they are about $160 shipped.

Ok thanks, that is a lot better. Are they the same as the MrCanBus ones that are out there? I know someone asked on your car thread about how you liked that kit and what you thought the difference was with the air vents?

installer.com is where i got mine and heat out of vents is still fine. I was talking about the ones i got for 160 from that site.

Tony, just out of curiosity how do your GM and other high-po buddies feel about your Fiat..My "other" cars are mostly German High performance cars and the initial reception when I first got my Abarth was a mixed bag..

my buddys thought they all were the same after they say this version and my upgrades they would rock it. Everyone knows if im getting a new car thats its going to be TONYFIED.

That's pretty much how my close friends who knew me felt..They all said for Freddy to buy a Fiat there has got to be a reason..

Love to see a GM fan. This is actually my best large cap stock pick for 2014. For some real leverage check out the warrants like GM-WTC

Are those ET3's on the roadster? I had same wheels on a 66 Mustang and transferred them to a 72 Mach1. Only ever saw one other set on the road since then. Boyd did a remake of them at one time I think.

I sold him the tires. :) i set him up with 33x15.5x16 M&H racemasters. I usually sell the drag radials to the local street racers out here since save them money over summit.

Well with the 3rd kid coming (my other 2 are 6 and 20 months) ill be moving my stuff back home. Just spending hours down at the shop kinda takes away time from family and rather be at home more since kids growing up fast. 99 percent of the suspension stuff I do doesnt need a lift anyway.

I see my buddies a lot so the 2500 hp nova will be the next thing getting worked on ill update the pics.
