I Mod, therefore I am.
I have never owned a vehicle that I did not MAKE my own in some way or form. I strictly enjoy moding. With a car such as ours, it is almost a form of art as there is much more to it than just throwing a credit card at it and bolting on parts. Most of the things we do, we create/adapt ourselves. Modding makes my car stand out from others. I look at it and appreciate the work that I did, and derive great satisfaction from being able to say that I did all the work myself. I also like it for the puzzle aspect. I want to do "THIS" so "HOW", "WHAT", "WHERE", "WHY does it need to be a certain way", all need to be answered to achieve "THIS". Never much considered the "WHY" to do it in the first place. Might as well ask "why race", "why they make so many different type of vehicles", "why not take the bus", etc .
Modding is a way of life to me.
