I remember when I first got into cars, Vinh invited me on a caravan cruise to a car meet in West Covina called TAB(Take a Break) Tuesday. This was my first time driving further than 30 miles outside my city and I was scared of getting lost. Luckily, I made it to the meet with the group and I was blown away by the awesome amount of cars that were at the meet. It was hosted at Store 13 and the parking lot was packed! It was my first experience going to a large scale car meet and it blew my mind how many people were into modifying cars. Years later, I would meet the person who started TAB Tuesday, Ron Sino Cruz. He was a super nice guy and was always welcoming to talk to anyone who had time. He was one of those people who had a genuine love for modifying cars, unlike kids today who do it for the internet fame. He was the leader of Team Supastar and I met a lot of cool people through that team when I was going with them to car shows. They made going to car shows fun and that was the vibe that I wanted for Royal Origin. Sadly, Ron passed away two years ago, last week his wife, Celine hosted a TAB Tuesday on his birthday at Speed Zone and we had to come out to this meet.
