Opinions vary. Met her the first time she did DragWeek in 2013 at the age of 16.. It wasnt her dad riding shotgun it was her mom. Her dad has been a builder for years and she feels right at home working on cars.Give her a chance.

I follow her on Instagram, it's been good seeing the Savoy progress. She does seem very hands on.

How she looks is irrelevant, her and her family get up to some cool stuff, which is worth following in my view. There is Onlyfans if I was inclined to see anything saucy

Tony has a sick child. He felt it was best to stay close to home, instead of traveling the country. I don’t blame him one bit for his decision.

Why should it surprise anyone they built a Mopar. Pay them enough they all would. Look at Jeg and Erica a few years ago. Now all she does is talk how bad those years were. There is no loyalty to anything anymore.

I met Alex and Dennis at RMRW 2020. She is very capable, and while yes, Daddy's money, talent, and guidance made her progress possible, she is doing it and quite self sufficient at this point, and more talented than many of us here having this conversation about them. They are very down to earth people. She was neck deep in the front end of Badmaro's engine pulling off an impressive feat of redneck engineering to repair a damaged cam timing system when I met up with them the first time to buy one of their spare fuel pumps to get my own junk running. Yes, she looks pretty and takes pictures with fans because that is a very effective way to build a brand. We all know who she is, right? Mission accomplished. I also spent a bit of time talking to Dennis about what their plans were for the future. This is it, and they're killing it. Tony made the honorable call to take better care of his family. Alex may not have the TV personality (yet) anfd therefore be subject to stupid scripts for a bit, but without a doubt she has the credentials to be there.

It's not a rat rod in my eyes, its a racecar without paint. Paint doesn't many anything more fun!
