A souped-up 2010 Chevrolet Camaro built by ToyMakerz and from Hometown Auto Group made its debut at Daytona Bike Week this week.

This car features Magnaflow Exhaust, suspension by KW Suspensions, powder-coating by Aegis Performance Coatings and wheels by HRE Performance Wheels. It also included Rad Performance and Summit Racing Equipment. The car was painted by Joyner Body Shop, based in Reidsville, NC, and owned by Charles Joyner II.

Autobody News reached out to Joyner Body Shop via telephone for more information about the paint work on the 2010 Camaro.

"As far as I'm concerned, Axalta is number one in the market,” Joyner said.

Joyner went on to give more details about the paint work. His shop did a color match on the hood, rear spoiler and lower balance panel.

Daytona Bike Week is a 10-day event filled with high-octane street festivals, concerts, motorcycle races, bike shows, rallies and manufacturer showcases. It has been described as the “World’s Largest Motorcycle Event." More than 500,000 motorcyclists attend every year. The event began more than seven decades ago.

David Ankin is the owner and proprietor of the company, ToyMakerz, Inc. Ankin is a custom vehicle fabricator and a former motorcycle racer and stunt man. David and his team at ToyMakerz satisfy a wide array of demanding customers. Ankin’s team creates lots of “one-off” specialized vehicles, ranging from custom motorcycles to racecars, trucks and unique reverse trikes. ToyMakerz, Inc. is based in Reidsville, NC, and the company was featured in a TV show of the same name beginning in 2016.

The ToyMakerz TV show on the Velocity Network embodies the modern definition of its title, "Unique Toys for Big Boys.” In the fall of 2016, season 1 of ToyMakerz premiered on the network.
