Nick: "I have always dreamed of having a car like this since I was
a kid watching the fast and furious and it just developed into a passion. Most people ask me “so which route are you going? Camber and fitment or boosted for speed?” My answer is always the same, why not both? I love the stanced, lowlife look and I also want something fun to drive. By no means the fastest thing around, but it just puts a smile on your face every time you punch it. This car is a fairly new project and is coming along well, however its far from complete."
"Shoutouts to Justin Collins owner at Qfab motorsports @qfabmotorsports for basically helping me with the whole build and Justin Monteith @just10it4thelulz for modifying the fenders to run these wheels. Also my buddy John Owens @johnrowens for the countless nights at his shop. As well as my girlfriend Tori Roberts for all of her support and for putting up with all the shows, meets and all the time and money I’ve put into this never ending hobby.
