You may be asking yourself, why are we seeing a car feature in the middle of Spring with golden brown leaves scattered on the scenery? We'll get to that in a minute. 

So, when we first met Trey from Hood Status Clothing, he was already down to collab, and we couldn't be more pleased. I thought it was going to be tough adjusting to NC. Moving away from Florida and being welcomed by the local crews truly made us felt at like we never left. But it wasn't until we began to see all the green and golden leaves change color, to really appreciate this beautiful new chapter in our new home, North Carolina.

Trey, a Greensboro native, showed us around and led us to this nice park with overarching trees sprinkling their brown leaves onto the road. It worked out perfectly. The subtle golden brown hues complimented Trey's custom gold painted Kranze LXZs.

Staying true to the Hood Status quo, it's very visible that Trey daily drives his car every day and isn't afraid to embrace its dents, scratches and bruises. Similarly, when the leaves fall and beautifully cover the ground momentarily upon their death, their remains add more character to the "canvas" and more life to the landscape.

We wish to share with you more of Trey's story and how his build came together in Part 2 of our feature. So stay tuned. As for now, enjoy a look back into last Fall with the following photos of this beast before it goes into hibernation.
