Imported directly from an autonomous region of the European continent commonly known as Finland, this ancestor of Nordic warriors has been directly embedded into the custom car culture through the guidance and tutelage of his equally classically trained predecessor and father, Tom Mangs. Tony is currently our youngest serviceman specializing in 12-volt warfare and a future top 10 installer nationwide just like the decedents before him. His willingness to accept any challenge has earned Tony a nickname of Thor, the Scandinavian God of Thunder. His powers are associated with thunder, lightning, storms, oak trees, strength, and the protection of vital electronics in nearly any automotive installation. At times you can find him clutching to his mighty hammer which allows Tony to break free from most sticky situations.
