Dustin lives with his wife Tara for over 20 years, two sons Tanner and Taden, german-shepard Diesel and chihuahua Lola. In his free time, he enjoys anything outdoors on his acreage up in Lawson, working on his personal hot rod, and fishing down in the Ozarks.

When asked the names of his two main cars right now, his '06 Corolla is named "Old Girl" and his '72 Nova is "Side Piece" because "she keeps taking all my money."

Hunter has been working in the industry for over 4 years now and is currently working on his ASE certifications.

Hunter has been with his long-time girlfriend Jami for over 5 years now. He enjoys riding around on his mini-bikes, getting up to shenanigans at the dunes, and catching us flat footed with his dry sense of humor.

When asked what car should have never been produced, he said the PT Cruiser (no offense PT Cruiser owners - he just had to work on 7 in a row one month and he still gets flashbacks)."

When asked what the sexiest vehicle in existence is, he said the 1969 Camero SS (we think we may have gotten his taste in muscle cars from his dad).
