I saw turbo tom's cars and shop!

I go to school at belmont abbey college and last night i found out that turbo tom's shop was in belmont so naturally i flipped out. but then today after class i took a trip out to find his shop and i did.. holy sh*#... i almost had a heart attack as i pulled in.. there is sitting tom's famous 400 some hp white zx3 and his black turboed svt.. the dyno was in the garage and toms chip guy showed me around the place. its made my week and month for that matter...

So do you have a Focus along with your Volvo? I live in apartments right near the Abbey, with an 03 Silver SVT...you've probably seen me a couple times....
