We had the utmost pleasure of spending a little bit of time with Bear Garcia and the team at Hooligan Customz this past weekend. Yes, it was stiflingly hot and more humid than mere mortals should be able to deal with, but the place reeked of creativity, awesomeness and plain old bad-ass motors.

For Phil it's all about the car, the quality of content and the story. Having experienced life on both sides of the automotive business, the unbridled urge to set up his own unique motoring website led to crankandpiston.com being founded in his spare room. The rest as they say is history.
