MEET OUR TEAM:

James Wicker

Owner

James is a life long custom car enthusiast. He was a customer of Automotive Addictions a few years before purchasing the company. When Tyler (our GM) owned the company, James was intrigued by everything involved with the company. He had the crew take his standard F-250 FTX and turn it into a monster! After having suspension, performance, interior, audio, and exterior fully customized, James wanted to be more involved.
