    New to Mad Mechanics

    I just wanted to start off by letting all of you know a little about me. Name is Derrek Johnson and I live in the middle of Illinois in North Pekin which is across the river from Peoria,IL. My Father and I opened a Hotrod Shop/Custom shop in 2005 after building our first streetrod together it was a 1939 Chevy sedan and we had great success with the car. We found out that we work together perfectly,unlike the Jr vs Sr Biker build people. We have built a number of replica cars and are considering trying our hand at a DNA, Factory5GTM or a Gagliardi Vendetta. I would love to hear some opinions or experinces with these companies and their products. If you dont want to post your responses here you can email me at Until I become a Patron you can see some of our work at and our shop name is Performance Associates in Customs and Coachworks. Love what I have read here on this forum and what I have already seen and learned. Thanks

    Welcome to the forum, glad to see another Illinoisan on here.
    IMO, the vendetta would be the most unique build on a custom chassis

    hello. welcome. the factory 5 is a sweet car, somewhat easy to build from what i hear. the vendetta is just flat out sexy. and you wont see anything like it once its done.

    Thanks for the Welcome aboard. I am looking forward to reading more and learning more as you all continue your diary builds. I have become addicted to reading them and have been pouring over them like a kid wanting more candy.
