What led you to buy a Lexus?

The relentless pursuit of perfection was found…..



Interests

Car modding…car modding…oh, and did I mention CAR MODDING! Jokes aside, I have many interests but this one is the most addictive and destructive to the pockets!



Goals

My goal is to keep this car updated with the latest technology offered while still maintaining its timeless stock form.



Why you chose to modify your Lexus?

My vision for my Lexus SC 400 was not fulfilled in any other SC coupe I have seen. Therefore, it was a calling of sorts…My aim was to customize my car utilizing some original ideas to gain the look obtained. After six years of ownership, a change was needed. The attention received and reaction from people when told about the year of the SC is utterly priceless! Long live the first generation Soarer!



Big thanks to those that helped get my car to this point:


  1. DGOT20’s (Derrick) - “ I would never get aftermarket rims...” Does that sound familiar? Thank you for helping keep me on the right track.

  2. aliga (Ali),

  3. Manaray (Mike)

  4. 2000hitechgs -for making my CLK mirror project happen after three years of trying to find the right person to finish it!

  5. O.L.T. (Brian)

  6. Anthracite SC (Mike)

  7. ClubLexus brothers and sisters for the inspiration to help see this project to completion.
