There's a few things we confessedly and unabashedly DIG around here. 1. Fast Cars 2. Passion 3. Family 4. Fast Cars 5. Passion 6..... I think you get my point. Valerie Clements of VCR (Valerie Clements Racing) combines all of the above into a cool story of growth and development while pursuing something she and her brother/tuner are passionate about. Valerie started her racing career at 2001 at the tender age of 8 in Jr. Dragsters.  From 01-07, she bracket raced Jr. Dragsters, then started heads up racing (330 Outlaw Jr. Dragsters).

(Agency Power's beautiful Titanium exhaust for a Ferrari) First of all, titanium is beautiful.  There's no denying that.  But it comes with a hefty price increase over your typical stainless system.

If there's one thing that can be guaranteed about an experienced fabricator, it's that his or her signature becomes apparent throughout their work.   Fabrication is a precise art that involves both motor skill and intelligent design.  Through the development of these skills and pursuit of what an individual's idea of "good looking" is, a style appears. So what happens when a skilled fabricator builds furniture?  We took to Pinterest again specifically looking at tables built by fabricators and the results didn't let us down.
