088 Jackson Drewes : Owner’s Spotlight
Jackson is of the newest generations of Corolla owners and has owned his converted GTSR5 since he was 17. This guy first caught my attention long ago at one of our first Friday of the month Corolla meets. I casually over heard someone saying there was a new owner in attendance and that he was still in highschool. I’ve since seen Jackson gradually become more a part of the community and I really wanted to hear his story as a new Corolla owner, especially because he is of the newest generation. In this episode we talk about his experiences as a new owner, trying to find knowledge in the digital age, and fun (or not) Rollalife stories.
