In 1984 when Tommy began a career as a patrol officer patrolling the streets of Tennessee. After a few years on the road, he became a Sergeant over a juvenile unit at a local sheriff's dept. During this time in law enforcement he developed the nickname "Lambo". The nickname "Lambo" stuck with him throughout the years.
After leaving the law enforcement in 1996, he pursued a different career and started his own business handling personal security. This took him all over the globe. During his travels, he visited local speed/hot rod shops all over the world. This developed into the idea of branding Lambo's Chop Shop Apparel Company and Lambo's Social Club was born!
