Brought you by:
We catch up with a true original, Mason Wright. Mason commishened Del Ushenko of Delmo Speed and Kustom to build him a RAD C/10. Well he did just that and more. Del and Mason built "Nacho Truck!" One of the sickest C10's around, well over seas now. The journey of this build starts with how Mason aquired the truck south of the border in Tiajuana! Mason and his amigo Jose went 25 miles south of the border to check it out. This is truly one of the BEST "how I bought my truck" stories out there. Part of the story that makes it even crazier is that no one new where the hell Mason and Jose wher going - including them. Lets just say that the adventure got Mason in some hot water at home, but it sure makes for a great story after the fact!!
We also talk about what Mason does for a real job, his addiction to Craigslsit and the Real Estate find.
Mason has a formula that seems to be working in both C/10's and Real Estate - buy low, make em look bad ass and then sell high! The dude has shown that he can do it too - walking away from two of the badest C10's at the top of thier game!
Next we talk to Mason about K5 Larry and how it probably ended up being a bigger undertaking then anyone from Mason, Delmo, and Nate (Porter) thought it would be. But they did it - building arguebly one of the sickest Blazer out there.
Those rims!! Mason talks about how Del had a plan and they went with it - those time 22/24 are the result. One off's that absolulty took Larry to the moon and back. Del has the "it" factor and Mason has been fortuneate to have him build two rides for him.
One of the best parts of the interview is when Mason talks about taking Larry to the Sand Dunes and how guys with $100K sand rails are in awe of this bagged Blazer pulling a trailer out at the dunes! Who wouldn't be?
Probably one of the easiest, and funnest interviews that I ahve done. Mason nailed it - I enjoyed just sitting back and listen to him do his thing.
Great Guy, building SIC rides. I look forward to seeing what is next for this Califonia kid. I am sure what ever it is it'll be unique!!
Good times bro, had a blast!
