The Story

I bought this car in 2008 inspired by the old ClubLexus forum OG's. It has slowly evolved into its current form, mostly over the last 10 years when I started attending meets and shows. It's mostly been a diy build (except paint and body, welding, and hydrodip) and I enjoy the process... mostly. I've met more great people than I ever could've imagined because of this car and hope to bring it outside of the Midwest more in the future.
