PROJECT ALPHA BRAVO
INTERPRETED BY TRIBE
PREPARED BY ERNIE MANANSALA
Todays average American spends 2 hours each day to pay for their cars, when it comes to deciding what car to buy, despite the overwhelming amount of options out there people then to get cars that fit their personalities, With the swing for extreme sports and new age media has been the talk of the town, it was only a matter of time before we would start seeing shawn white on youtube at the age of 6 to become the shawn white of today now rallying with BFG.
So as I decided which car to customize for SEMA this year the FIAT really reached out to be because of my media back ground and my childhood of riding BMX. Building a car that is battle read would not only encourage this new style of tuning but would like to also push a new way of thinking .. So naturally “I am in!”
I have been keeping a close eye on off road scene where you have to be prepared for everything, along with new age media technology where anything can go viral, I was able to witness this new batch of consumers who are willing to investing into there hobbies and share it with the world today.
