In this car community, we’re all students, and we’re all teachers… simultaneously. 

There’s no 1 role here. It doesn’t matter your age. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been doing it. 

Inspiration comes from the top-down AND the bottom-up. It’s both dynamic and symbiotic.

So value your value. But be wise to approach this culture with a sense of humility, and a selfless eagerness to help & encourage those around you. We need that. Because compared to most other hobbies, there is A LOT to learn here. Why do it alone? This is Black Keathley’s 2013 Subaru WRX. Blake runs Forged Fitment. Forge Fitment is a brand built around chasing quality & attention to detail, BUT ALSO… built around encouragement over exclusion. Because in the car community, we’re all students & teachers.

“I’ve always had a passion for this, and I’m grateful I get to share it with friends in this scene.”
