The sheer satisfaction and pride that comes from owning a “rez car” and a “rez dog” is what attracted two more competitors this year.
Then of course there’s the tuning. There isn’t anything the Diné are afraid of doing like repairing components with duct tape, reinforcing components with wires, and doing the unthinkable to cars.
