This car is nuts, nice recovery from the accident man! I love seeing the work you put into it, you're an inspiration for stuff I wanna do to my Saab. Keep it going, or better yet; just enjoy it for a while. You deserve it. ;)

Great photos, love the one of you behind the Squareback! The lens the photographer used makes your 122 look chopped...to me anyway. Haha. And that Porsche 911....

It’ll take me some time to get my website up and running. I’m slowly working on an Atom D&D Facebook page right now to get by. Stay tuned and feel free to message me if if need anything.

Good luck on the new venture Adam, your wagon is a piece of art, beautifully done. Love the new color over the blue, so classy.

Car looks incredible, as usual. And good luck with the new business. Can't wait to see the work you'll do.

Ha, maybe you can retroactively write off the Amazon as a marketing expense?

Itís funny, cause when I first painted it, me and my wife were both a bit unsure. It was blue for a long time. After getting some decent photos we saw the video they filmed for PNW Wagonfest where itís still blue and it looked wrong. Now I canít imagine it not being white.

New “teaser” drone video. Be sure to give my buddy a follow on YouTube (should you be so inclined). We plan on filming more this summer. He’s got a pretty nice car too.

Pretty cool that they’re using the Amazon for one of the print-on-site T-shirt options at PNW Wagonfest this weekend.

Hey guys. Haven’t done a single thing to the Amazon, except drive it and enjoy it, but I’m gonna be on Wheel and Pedal Wednesday this week doing a little Q&A and discussing the Amazon build. Try to pop in live at 10:00am pacific. mixer.com/Forza and twitch.tv/Forza

Here’s some recent pics to make this post have decent content. ��
