CupGang is more than camaraderie. It’s thicker than blood. We've taken different roads to become who we are but, at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter where you’ve been, it matters who you’re with and when you’re with us, like it or not- you’re FAMILY. Cars. Unite. People. It’s just that simple. We’re loud, crazy and passionate international car collectors who look out for each other with a brotherly bond that can’t be broken.
We stand united. We stand strong. We stand together.
CupGang’s origin story is that of friendships, cars, and quite honestly just pure luck. It all began one late January night when our dear friend and designated dumb stoner Michael aka “The Golden Jew” had just received news from our lovely friends at The Auto Gallery that Mr. Alejandro Salomondrin’s brand new 918 Spyder had just arrived. This was the catalyst. Alejandro proceeded to call a man with such a questionable reputation that many of us dare not lay a hand on him for fear of getting all diseases known to man and that is Dean from Stickercity or what we like to call “EEEEEEEEEEEESTICKER SHITTY.” He made one more phone call to the Salvadorian LL Cool J, the friend who can't go a day without chap stick, the man with the worst vision even worse than the Asians in the group. The one and only Junior from Fresh Window Tint (yes he does greet people saying “Hi I am Junior from Fresh Window Tint.")
From that blossomed the beginning of what CupGang was to become, a group of friends who came together because of their passion for cars. CupGang started as an inside joke between tight-knit friends, but soon these friends began to see the impact that these cars had on the people around them. They soon began to see the unity that it could bring people of all walks of life together. Cars, Unite, People truly began to unravel in front of their very eyes. Not only could they have fun and enjoy their passion for cars, but they began to see the difference in the communities and the lives of the younger generation by exposing them to the wonders of automobiles while also teaching them great life lessons. On that note, CupGang does not select its members, instead you are the one who decides if you are CupGang. We all are CupGang.
I'm a person who enjoys good people and badass cars. My work is defining people's cars to represent who they are. I love what I do because of the joy it puts on people's faces. Being a part of such an eclectic group of people (CupGang), has given me a new direction and passion in life!
"Never want to be accused of being normal or average. I would take insanity over average any day."
I'm also known as the good looks of the group which I am sure you've noticed from the second you see any of my pictures which in turn gets me anything I want in this life.
Ever since I was a child, I always knew I wanted to be successful. My father reminded me that due to my infatuation with the finer things in life, I would have to work hard for those things, and work even harder for best. Being apart of CUPGANG has given me the opportunity to see how much we as people can accomplish if we work together. The word Unite in CUP rings true with this group- united we will accomplish many things that can, and will, change the car world as we know it. Using our various connections, we have helped every single one of our members and we all strive to see each other excel in all aspects of life.
They say I’m the critic of all critics! I am just a thought-provoking and loyal guy who has passion for cars, an eye for details, and doing adventurous things all while hanging out with my closest friends.

I’m a New Yorker that moved to California in 2003. I jumped into the car business and then the rest was history. I'm an old school person who's about respect and loyalty.
"Life is like a roll of toilet paper, it's a never ending story."
I’m a man of few words, both quiet and reserved, but don't let that fool you- I do my part and help out the fellow CupGang members. I always look out for CupGang’s best interest and make things happen behind the scenes. I’m a serial entrepreneur, working an average of 80 hours a week, but as hard as I work, I play even harder. I love motorsports and enjoy good conversation with fellow enthusiasts.
I'm the guy that makes sh*t happen! Period!
Crazy? Absooolutely! Loud? Absooolutely! Car enthusiast? Absooolutely! Absooolutely, absooolutely!!! I’m nothing without family and look at cars as art. Where smart and wealthy people, like Alejandro, buy paintings, I’m not there yet. Through my endeavors, I’ve been able to travel all over the world. I’m an entrepreneur and an active investor who’s gotten really lucky. I’d like to think I make good decisions. I know becoming apart of CupGang was one of them.
Throw any car at me and I’ll tell you EVERYTHING about it. I’m the Car Google of the group. I’m analytical and, while I pay very close attention to the details, I also have a passion for seeing beyond them. You’ll often see me sporting stunning sunnies while dipped in sartorial necessities. I’m well-educated, straight forward, and honest- but I’ll never shy away from acting a fool when necessary.
I’m a car lover and auto detail aficionado. I really enjoy watching the evolution of cars and seeing the differences in how they were manufactured to how they are today now that I’m old enough to witness that progression. Enhancing the look and feel of a car through the latest products, technology, machinery, and knowledge of auto detailing is a passion of mine. I go crazy over, and become one with, these cars once I learn them during any given stage of the detail or paint correction process. The cars I encounter demand me to operate at a high level! We’re talking about cars you don’t see everyday!

"It's what non-car people don't get. They see all cars as just a ton and a half, two tons of wires, glass, metal, and rubber, and that's all they see. People like you or I know we have an unshakable belief that cars are living entitles... You can develop a relationship with a car and that's what non-car people don't get... When something has foibles and won't handle properly, that gives it a particularly human quality because it makes mistakes and that's how you can build a relationship with a car that other won't get."
