"People ask me what my drug of choice is because of my name," Junkie says, "beer and fat women, that's what I do."
Ed 'Junkie' Loughary is an extremely hard working individual, but plays just as hard. He spends most of his days at his shop on Mill Street, just off Main Street in Festus, Mo. where he was born and raised. When he's not at his shop, he roams the the highways and back roads throughout Jefferson County changing tires, doing odd jobs, and helping with his partner's bail bond business from time to time.
He is a dedicated father and loving partner, looking for nothing more than to better the life of his youngest son Clayton, 4. Though he dedicates most of his time to work, he doesn't have trouble admitting that he plays just as hard after hours.
Junkie changes a truck's tire along the I-55 at exit 203 on the southern edge of St. Louis, about 30 minutes north of Festus, Mo.
