Owning Something stock

Will any of you ever own a vehicle stock??? I don't think i could own anything stock.. i would end up finding something for it performance and appearance wise.... Nothing i will ever own will be stock.. always modified.. even my mower..

My mower is modded if you consider adding a 12 oz can holder and removing the kill switch...my friends have solid chrome hub caps on their cub cadet!

That seems to be the rule, even around me everyone with a hot car(s) still live at home (with one exception that I know of). I can't personally drive something stock. I'd change something, even if it meant something minor.

Well you have an aftermarket deck Urn, that's still changing it up a little bit. Most everything I own has a little something done to it, I like to make things a bit custom so they feel more like your own...
