    As most of everyone on this forum already knows the past two years, Steve at Vipair Performance with the help of the VCA and many other companies like Advance Tech Collision, have come together and completed my unfinished deployment project after sustaining injuries. For the past two years, the people who have contributed have proven why soldiers have given some, if not all, to protect our way of life. Many times I asked Steve to stop the project but he insisted and dedicated more and more time and money to completing my dream. My car started as a beat up, battered, red headed step child held together by half the fasteners needed to stay in one piece that was put back together by knock off dodge parts that didn't fit after several accidents from previous owners. It leaked like someone with a bladder control issue and burnt more fuses than someone in college celebrating amendment 64. Steve took in this misfit and pulled a Blind Side giving this car an Extreme Makeover. Countless donations, labor hours, and research... she is now a runway model driving down the street with confidence.

    I want to thank everyone that helped me finish my dream and I plan on paying it forward. I am currently working with Veterans Passport to Hope in Colorado to help raise money for our veterans. I am putting together ideas for the homeless integration for veterans as well as finding out other avenues to help troubled veterans. I continue to meet with countless non profits in Colorado and I am also giving classes starting Monday to a local high school one hour a day every Monday. I have talked to the Boy Scouts about giving speeches on perseverance as well. Hopefully this summer I can keep to my promise of traveling across the US and giving speeches in the VCA regions that helped this build. I honestly don't think I could ever show my gratitude enough for what this club and Steve has done for me but it goes to show how great of a nation we live in, where people help people they don't even know. Where people walk up to a soldier in uniform and say, "thank you." YOU are why we fight....

    Thank you everyone. This car will be apart of my life until the day they bury my body and I'm going to put it in my will that I am to be burried into my car! I have met some great people through this build and cannot say enough good things about Steve!! Because of his experience of bringing more new products to the viper community than most venders combined, my car turned out flawlessly. Thank you once again to everyone!! :usa:
