Brian Young - 2000 Chevrolet Blazer
I currently drive a 2000 Chevrolet Blazer. This Blazer was originally a 4x4 but after modifications, I lowered it and did away with the 4 wheel drive. I have a passion for SUVs and this 4 door blazer caught my eye I immediately knew this could be something special and having 2 small children, I needed a 4 door vehicle.

2000 Chevrolet Blazer
Photographer: Nathan Pittman - @madtownvisualz
I am the Parts and Service Manager for Perkins Tires and in Pascagoula, Ms, I am a Single Dad of 2 children. I am originally from Tampa, Fl. and moved to Mississippi in 1991 after I graduated High School.
I have had a love for cars from an early age and my parents have always supported me in it. I've always had a fascination for custom cars. The first vehicle I ever showed was a 1989 Dodge Dakota Sport convertible. I currently attend shows with my dad, who also is into showing his custom ride. Being a Father/Son due at shows brings a lot of meaning to the family show scene.
I currently drive a 2000 Chevrolet Blazer. This Blazer was originally a 4x4 but after modifications, I lowered it and did away with the 4 wheel drive. I have a passion for SUVs and this 4 door blazer caught my eye I immediately knew this could be something special and having 2 small children, I needed a 4 door vehicle. This blazer has plenty of room for a Huge sound system that can be heard from way off loud and clear. I have tweaked this system to be a monster inside and outside of the vehicle.
Everything I have ever owned I have customized one way or another. After studying the body lines and structure, I knew this would be a beautiful ride once I could get it finished but there is no finishing. I am always working on this Blazer every weekend. Just when you think it is perfect, you can always find something else that could make it better. Having a HUGE passion for it also helps. This is a daily driven vehicle and Im always turning heads.
It is very satisfying to see where you started and what it has become. I have done 90% of the work myself and that is a feeling you can’t pay for. I have learned a lot of things that I truly did not know could be done to a vehicle just by paying attention. Being a single dad, it took time to get it to where I wanted it to be but with patience I finally made it. I think this makes I t unique because it is a daily driven vehicle that looks like it is brand new. Her name is ATTENS10GETTER for a reason. She has 276,000 original miles and runs like new

I have done 90% of the work myself, minus the body and paint, and I think my future plans would be to do an LS engine swap and a full-blown custom interior.
My tip would be to follow your passion and never give up. Rome was not built in a day and custom show trucks aren’t either. I can always find something else to customize because they are always a work in progress. If you are building it yourself, talk to other people and get ideas. Look at other vehicles, whether they are like yours or not, because at the end of the day, you can tweak any idea to make it work for you.
My modifying tip would be to do your research on what you are wanting to do and talk to people that may have done it and find out what works. In the long run, you may find you can do it yourself, and there is nothing more satisfying than knowing you have done the work yourself, hence the logo BUILT NOT BOUGHT. It makes you proud when someone comes up and asks questions about your vehicle and you can give them advice on what they can do for their vehicles.

Club affiliation, President of Excessive LifeStyles Gulf Coast Chapter
Being in the car scene has brought many lifetime friendships and memories that can never be replaced. The car scene family is like no other family I have ever encountered. They have a bond and relationship only other car scene fanatics would appreciate. My club affiliation Excessive LifeStyles gives back to the community any chance we get.
Our Club motto is:
“This is about the creativity of a lifestyle which together is created through ideas and sharing the same passion. It is about friendships and building a family.”
I would like to Thank the late Greg Miller for not only being a friend but a mentor. Telling me to never give up on my dream and push harder for my end game. Then he stated, the end game never truly comes because you always keep pushing and it’s not about the trophies but the friends and memories you make along the way.
My dream is for me to be able to contribute as much to the custom scene as it has to me. To touch the lives of children and young teens to inspire them to want to keep this scene alive and off the streets. To eventually begin customizing other vehicles starting with my sons.
