    Member Spotlight #3 – October 2007 - cwp_sedan



    1) What is your full name?
    Ryan Franklin
    And like his Uncle Ben Franklin, he is electrifying . . at least that’s what he tells us . . .

    2) Where do you currently work/go to school?
    I am currently employed at PG(e) Marketing Services as a Graphic Designer/Production Artist.
    PG(e) where our product is anything but PG!

    3) What were/was your pervious car(s)?
    1996 Grand Am GT
    1990 Buick Regal GS
    1986 Chrysler New Yorker
    it took him a few tries, but now he is JDM

    4) What was your worst job?
    As bad as this is to say, I have never really had a "bad" job. I enjoy what I am doing now so that's not on the list. My last job was serving in a 4-diamond hotel restaurant and the money was extremely good so that wasn't it either. I guess it would have to be my Arby's job back in high school. I enjoyed the people but the pay and work sucked. I'll never work in fast food again that's for sure.
    Arby’s home of the giant cholesterol filled, quintuple stacked GIANT roast beef sandwich . . . perhaps the most disgusting sandwich on the planet!

    5) What was your best job?
    Probably what I am doing now. I went to school for graphic design and have enjoyed doing it as a career so far.
    Yeah I bet, all that work you do for ‘Hef’ you dawg you!

    6) Tell us something rare and interesting about you.
    I am originally from Niagara Falls. I lived there for 21 or so years of my life. Came to school in Toronto, got a job, and ended up moving here. I've enjoyed the move and probably will stay here for quite a while.
    We said interesting . . . Niagara Falls is not interesting! (LOL)

    7) Do you collect anything?
    I used to collect model cars and hockey cards. I also used to collect pogs...lol. But that was waaaaay back in the day. So currently I don't really collect anything.
    Here’s the clincher, he used to collect Hockey Pogs too! (Shut up, its cool, I did it too!)

    8) If you have been to a meet, please list your fave tm3 events/meets
    I would have to say it was the 2nd Annual Team Slipstream Show n' Shine. It was a fun time with a nice cruise down to Niagara. The Mega Meet is on the list too! I wish I could have made it to Bubba's BBQ but unfortunately I wasn't able to make it out.
    Ryan wrote a fantastic article about the TSS Show n’ Shine . . . if you haven’t seen it, check the TM3 Times September issue.

    9) Please list a member you want to meet that you haven't, and why
    Well there are a lot of people I haven't met. I try to get out to meets when I can but it's hard with work, etc. I am fairly new to the TM3 family so I am looking forward to meeting a lot more people.
    What is this . . . The Vagina Monologues? (LOL)

    Seems like the only reason we haven't met is because you went to the two events I missed this year (otherwise, i was everywhere!)

    Hope to meet you in the future though. You seem like a kewl guy. Good commentary

    Congrats Ryan, Great Pics Matt as always.

    Broli... still a goof.. no need for the comments IMO.

    2 questions or comments I should ask...

    1) New Yorker, Regal..... Pimpin ain't easy?

    2)Pogs... too funny.
    Damn you photobucket.....

    Thanks guys! I definitely have to thank Matt for taking the time to take these pics. The night was awesome for it. Alex, the comments are priceless. Definitely jazzed up my boring bio.

    Hey man, what can you expect when in high school! New Yorker was given to me as my first car. It had a leaky head gasket and ended up overheating not long after I started driving it. The Regal was great! I loved the car, but it was in an accident where the damage was far beyond the value of the vehicle. I actually liked the Regal, just too bad it only had the 3.1 though instead of the 3.8.

    I had to work my way up eventually.

    I work at 404 and 7 and sometimes I was up around Woodbine and 16th. Are you sure it was me?

    This was my old GA

    I hate listing mods because if you ever have anything to expensive or whatever people can find out where you are and get them...if you know what I mean. Fortunately I don't have anything.

    My list is small.

    Stubby antena, 6000k HID lows and fogs, Ind fogs, Axela badge, smoked led 3rd brakelight, chrome dipped signal bulbs, 20% tint, led licence plate bulb. For audio I have 6.5s in the front doors and a 12" sub.

    Nothing special. Seems minor compared to some so there's no need to say all that much.

    My interior looks like yours...it's just black though.

    The Grand Ams had a nice problem with the intake gaskets and I always seemed to have a problem of some sort with mine. I'm definitely glad I went with Mazda this time around.
