My real Intro

Ok here is my real intro. I guess since Cody did one I will do one also.

My name is Matt Ledford, but I don't think any of my friends knew that.lol Everyone calls me Munchie. It was a nickname my mom gave me at 10 years old, cause I was as large wide as I was tall.lol I'm 25 years old. I'm married to the love of my life. We have 3 kids...Kaylee 5, Abby 3, and Aiden 1. They are my everything.



I first met Samir at a car show. Not sure which one, but I am sure it was either a show or the track. I used to be pretty big in drag racing, both street and strip. I had everything from stock to swapped hondas to a 300hp Jetta. My racing days came to an end one night on the way home from the track when I was messing with a guy on Research Park Blvd. There was a misshap with traffic and I ended up loosing control at around 130mph and t-boned a tree, a gaurd rail and an embankment. My wife and myself walk away from the wreck with nothing more than frazzled nerves and she had a sore back. That Jetta took it like a champ.lol 5 of the 6 airbags deployed and saved our lives.
This was it a few months before:

This is it after the wreck.

Needless to say this was a defining moment in my life. I had an 8 month old child at my moms house that need me to stick around for a while.

This turn of events has made me the man I am today. I AM ADDICTED TO AIR RIDE. I love it with every bit of automotive passion I have. The way it works, the way it moves, the many different ways to be setup, and the constant change in the air ride game is what has drawn me to it. I have owned 6 rides with air. I have installed more than I can count and I continue to grow my knowlegde of this gorgeous modification daily. I won't bore you with pictures of my past vehicles as there are too many and I don't want to mess with the bandwidth.lol I currently own a few rides. My signature pretty much has all of them in it. But these are my toys:




My constant love for car shows has drawn me and my wife into photography also. We have our own side business called Ledford Photography. You can check out some of our stuff on facebook or at www.ledfordphotographyonline.com. We are completely self taught, with help from friends like Samir with panning, framing, etc...and others.
