Since he was born, Taylor Knight has been watching his father modify numerous cars and trucks. "Let me put it this way," said Knight. "My dad had a Cadillac Escalade, Porsche Turbo, BMW M3 and an E55 AMG all at once. Each one had its own unique touch." Modifying vehicles has been in the Knight family for a long time. "My dad got it from his dad," he said. "Now my brother and I are addicted as well."

Taylor Knight owns a unique 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with a 5.3 liter engine. Although his Silverado was in the Off-Road Expo at the Orange County Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa last year, Taylor's truck is more of a practical one than one for exhibition. "It is not a truck with an extreme amount of horsepower nor does it have six 12" subwoofers just for show," said Knight. "I am going for the best looking truck that can be used as a daily driver. And I believe I have accomplished that."

K&N has been a part of the Knight family for generations. "My father, brother and most of my cousins have been using K&N since I can remember," Knight said. His first truck was a lifted GMC Denali C3 Sierra, "I have used K&N since I got my license at 16 years old."

Taylor Knight uses K&N air intake 57-3058 on his 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with a 5.3 liter engine. "My K&N intake performs wonderfully," he said. "I installed it myself, with no previous experience. I can tell my truck runs better with it installed."

Currently, Knight still wants to install a sound system and an AMP Research PowerStep Running Board. For his next car, however, Knight wants something more luxurious like an Escalade or Lexus GS 350. Taylor Knight won't be giving up his passion for modified cars and trucks any time soon. "Customizing cars is in my blood," he said. "And I'll do it until I grow old and die."
