Randy Johnson, owner/builder at D&Z Customs, and AMXess car owner “Hollywood” Jimi Day are looking for some BangShift support, and we are going to give it to them. They have been invited to participate in the Car Craft Pro Builder’s Shootout this weekend and you need to help by voting for them now. We happen to work with Randy and Jimi at a lot of events and can tell you that despite the Hollywood looks, these are two great hot rodders. And just as important, Jimi’s AMX Pro Touring car is one bad mother. We have had the chance to make some laps in AMXess, and really love this car. You also have to give credit to Jimi and Randy for making a real deal AMX into something other than a drag car, which hasn’t happened since we were born. And remember, Jimi is half of FM3 Marketing who puts on all the Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational Series. Support them like they support us!
Read Jimi’s note to BangShifters and see more photos below.
Here is what Jimi had to say about the honor.
Dear AMXess BangShifters, Sponsors and Friends,
Help D&Z Customs win the Car Craft Pro Builder of the Year!
D&Z Customs has been invited by Car Craft Magazine to participate in the 2012 Pro Builder’s shootout. We’ll be presenting AMXess to the thousands of automotive enthusiasts in attendance. The Pro Builder’s shootout is unique in that both the attendees at the Summer Nationals and the readers of Car Craft get to vote for their favorite. We’re really excited and honored to be featured in the shootout, but we need your help in spreading the word and we respectfully ask for your vote! There are several really good cars in the competition, including a Street Machine of the Year finalist, so we know it’s going to be a tough race, but with your vote we know we can win this thing for the little guy!
Obviously, winning is a big deal not only for Randy and I, but the publicity and PR for BangShift’s sponsors, who are sponsors on the car, will add even more value to their sponsorship. Voting starts on July 20 and ends Sunday July 22. We may seem like an underdog, but AMXess is an awesome build and certainly something out of the ordinary. Thanks for your support and your help!
