Erik Yacko had been a good friend to many of us during our 501st days and when we started the CT-V he was the first one to say, “I’ll give you a space at my show.” Our first exhibition with our Laser Jeep — a vehicle that no one had ever recreated before — was for ComiCONN 2014 at the Bridgeport Arena. For our nichey little group, this was huge for us.

Erik’s belief in what we do and giving us the exhibition space gave us the confidence to get out there and see that what we were doing was resonating with other fans out there. Fans that we never dreamed were out there in such a large number because no one had ever done this before. As our friend, Erik, we thank you for believing in us and giving us the opportunity to get out there, grow, and reach other fans out there. We couldn’t have done it without you.
