Last month we put up a casting call looking for any car owners in the Southeast who thought they had what it took to make the blog. After a couple weeks of disappointment I logged on to our email and was surprised when I saw a message from Nathan Harris out of Elkin, NC. When Nathan bought this 2004 sunlight silver RX-8 it was completely stock, and in about 1 year he has transformed it into a great looking car. The car shed a few pounds due to the Seibon TS carbon fiber hood and VisRacing trunk lid, these mods also added to the aesthetics of the often overlooked RX-8 platform. A set of Megan Racing lowering springs has this 8 sitting nicely on some Rota Boost wheels ( 18x9 +30 front +20 rear ). Under the hood a K&N Typhoon intake helps the exhaust note heard through the HKS Hi-Power exhaust; and speaking of notes Nathan also has a Kicker 12" Comp sub woofer powered by a Kicker 550 watt 2 way amp inside the car. Nathan is the proud president of 2ND-2-N01 car club based in Elkin and is a great guy who I got nothing but good vibes from when I met him at last weeks ISO meet.
