Welcome enthusiast to issue #26 of Customs, Cruisers, and Classics! Pardon my absence from last weeks issue, I was under the weather, but I think I need to be sick more often as Nero did an amazing job on issue #25! I think we'll be seeing more Nero in the future! For the final edition of the Goon Squad series we have, Slasher!

pleasure enjoyment joy! The photos will always be work safe but put in spoiler tags so you may have the option of viewing them whenever you choose; or don't click it because y'no, you just wanted to strictly see cars !
This weeks pin-up girl is:
Sarah Sinclair 💋
Each week I will feature a video clip of the pure sound of some of the best sounding cars/bikes to ever grace this planet! The videos will always be put in spoiler tags so you may view at your own time and to avoid mobile users from accidentally clicking the play button when scrolling. Time to tickle your brain with the vibrations of
The Song of my People!
Last but certainly not least, we have Slasher, another excellent vehicle photographer seen regularly in the Custom Rides thread and also a regular with their snaps featured in many CC&C!
What is your favorite part about being in Goon Squad?
The members for sure, they're all a bunch of dope motherf*ckers.
How long have you been a part of GS?
A little more than 2 years.
Which members of Goon Squad do you hang out with the most?
Exqlusive, Lok Dog and TK are the ones I keep in touch with the most on other social media platforms.
GTAO got really stale for me after the trainer we used got detected, so for the past year I've only messed around in director mode.
What platform do you primarily play on?
What got you interested in cars/bikes?
I've been interested in cars my whole life. My dad and I always went to car meets and events like A-Bombers when I was younger so I guess he's partly to blame.
How long have you been into the GTA series games?
Since San Andreas, copped myself a copy launch week then shortly after I bought Vice City.
I did have GTA for the PSOne but I rarely played it.
If you could coordinate the perfect Car Meet in GTA Online, what would it look like?
It would be to gather up the Goons and find some filthy place in Sandy Shores; preferably with some old american cars of course.
Do you have a preference in what type of cars/bikes you shoot? (Japanese, American, Euro, etc)
Nah I love 'em all.
What is your favorite vehicle in the GTA series of all time?
That's a tough one. Even though I'm not particularly an Aston fan I'll have to go with the Seven-70, the F12 x One-77 combo looks menacing.
Is there a vehicle from any GTA series that you would want to see return?
What is your favorite car or bike in real life?
57' Chevy 150 and 64' Bel Air
As an enthusiast, what is your biggest automotive pet peeves seen within the car community? ie: I hate really cambered cars! People who call themselves car people but hate on other foreign brands! etc
Euro cars with 21" wheels, stretched tires and "stance works" sticker on the windshield. It's lame.
Can you name your favorite car/racing game of all time?
Midnight Club 3. I actually used to take pics of my cars with a disposable camera, I guess some things never change haha.
Wow, a disposable camera! I used to take photos with my flip phone!
Do you use any vehicle type mods (wheel packs, vstancer, etc)?
I do. Vstancer, Menyoo and MG's wheel pack are the ones I use the most.
Do you use any other type of photo editors or graphic mods for your snaps?
Photoshop; I've tried a few graphic mods in the past but vanilla overall looks better imo.
Do you have any photography tips for the readers?
Don't go overkill with the tilt and zoom feature, it often makes the whole scene look awkward or messy. Find a neat location, get some nice camera angles and give it a sharp edit afterwards to complete your masterpiece.
Is there anything you would like to see be added in GTAF in the future?
Goon Squad certified GTAF crew.
Any other comments or shout outs?
Thanks for having me! Also shoutout to my partner in crime Ted Cruz.
