The doors of Tony Hopkins Jr.'s white Dodge Charger open Lamborghini-style: They swing up, not out. The white car has four TVs for watching DVDs, exterior speakers mounted on the rear and 24-inch rims. But the 25-year-old Pasadena resident still has about a month's worth of customizing work left to do. This is not a car he'd give up without a fight. So it seemed natural that Hopkins slugged a would-be car thief and took his .380-caliber handgun when two men tried to rob him outside his apartment in the 8100 block of Elmberry Court on Thursday night.
