Seven Knapp

New to the profesional side of the auto industry, but I've been modifying cars since I got my first one, a 1999 Grand AM GT. Started out by putting in a new stereo and speakers. Then I go a pair of used subwoofers from a friend and built my first subwoofer encloser in woodshop class. Been addicted to stereo equiptment ever since. I was always the go to guy when my friends wanted to upgrade their sound system.

I never had enough money to buy a nice car so I had to learn pretty quick on how to fix them to keep them running. But with every vehicle it always turned from how to keep it running to "how can I make it a race car?". I started buying and selling cars right after high school to make some extra money. At one point I had an entire row filled at the apartments that I lived at with my cars. Some said I had a problem, I called it a passion. That's how I was able to get my first dream car, trading a Chevy pickup for a 1997 Trans AM. I swapped the LT1 for an LS1, sold a bunch of my cars including a 300zx, so I could afford more speed parts for the '97.

I worked at Apple for the last four years learning a lot about the tech industry. That job made my second dream car possible, a 1967 Pontiac Firebird. That's how I met everyone here at Oklahoma Customs. I've build most of the car myself, but there have been many things I've needed some help on. After being their customer for a long while, I knew when I decided to leave Apple that this is where I wanted to work. When I got hired on Johnny said, "We traded our second best customer for 8th best employee". Mark, Johnny and the rest of the crew up here are by the coolest and most helpful shop in Oklahoma.
