      It is already in the comments, but Hector is gonna be running three Honda Civics with Spoon engines. On top of that, he just came into Harry's and ordered three T66 turbos with NOS and a Motec system exhaust.

      I'm so glad you have a youtube channel. was watching your content on snap but that was balls compared to a good youtube video. <3

      That said you were epic about keeping things incredibly watchable, you have integrity that shows what you're about on snapchat.
