When did you begin modding?

-i began modding as soon as i got the car in highschool at 16.

What direction did the car start in and how has it changed?

- I started modding it basically as a car to have fun with, and to try things out on. I admit, it might have started a bit ricey, with the wheel gap and the full fiberglass body kit, but I guess I liked it at that point. It has definitely changed for the better, for some reason I just could never get enough low. Around freshman year in college I changed the front end and started getting more and more obsessed with going lower so I purchased the coil over sleeves, and still wasnt happy with my ride height. So then I looked into modifying the strut, and about a year ago I got introduced to "Hella Flush" and everything changed. haha I'll be getting full coilovers asap.


Where do you see your car going next?

-To the ground. and a repaint, lol Gonna try and clean up the look a bit.
