Why did you choose this car?
Jake: "I chose this car for the primary purpose that not a lot of people hold for these cars. I see a lot of them being traded away and not well cared for. I wanted to fully resurrect the Del Sol."
What was the main goal when the build started?
Jake: "My main goal was to make it reliable and fun to drive. Looks was not a priority."
Do you have a unique story behind the car or build?
Jake: "I wouldn't say it's unique, but I would certainly say it has been a journey from start to finish. Within the 4 years and 2 months of owning this car, it has gone through so many changed. I have replaced every bushing on the car."
What are your future plans for the car?
Jake: "Future plans would probably be to touch the performance aspect of the car. I definitely want to boost it. Soon enough, it will happen."
Is there anything you would have done differently if you could go back?
Jake: "If I could go back, I would have probably looked for a RHD version or transtop model. Other than that, no regrets."
Do you have any shoutouts?
Jake: "Too many to list but they know who they are. Closest friends and photographers. Beyond grateful to have so many great people around me."
