    ***September COTM....Third Shift Studios***

    2000 Trans Am WS•666
    Over 100,000 miles (just turned it at the end of August).
    I bought this WS•6 in June 2007, it was purchased a few months after having totalled my original Navy Blue WS•6. I named her "the Phoenix Risen" to commemorate my return to the f-body world after the original car's untimely demise. At the time of purchase, the Phoenix had exhaust work and lower springs, plus the black rims; so some work was in place before I started adding mods to make her corner and run better on the street and in the AutoX. The best part about this car is she handles great and looks fantastic doing it. The paint was wet sanded and polished to a orange peal + swirl free finish last year prior to the 09 T/A Nationals by a fellow F-body enthusiast. This instigated me to pursue detailing as a new career and officially launched ts|s Mobile Detailing in Nov 2009. In May 2010, I had enough clientele to leave my "day job" as a web designer and detail cars full time, continuing to develop custom car emblems at night, as third_shift|studios.
