Talking Apex Motorsports: An Inside Look

Just wanted to start a thread to give you guys a peek inside the daily grind at APEX Motorsports.




For any of you who have worked with Victoria, now you can put a face to the name.








Meet Honey, the shop mascot.




Me doing some assembly.




My toy.




The loading dock ramp (aka: burnout pit).

Do you do tuning on the Traverse as well? It is the same V6 as the Camaro, right? Just detuned I'm guessing....cool dog, also!
