What led you to buy a Lexus?
I received my Lexus as a hand-me-down birthday present from my dad when I was 16. At the time I wasn’t really interested in it, but over time I grew to love my car. So far, I’ve had my ups and downs, but I couldn’t be anymore happier with the way it is right now. The sleek, low profile stature of the coupe gives me a sense of thrill and excitement when I’m driving it.

On my spare time, I like to play tennis and workout. I also like to play the piano and draw occasionally. I like to hangout with my friends and family anytime I could. I enjoy meeting new people and other car enthusiasts.

My overall goal with my car is to build a balance of a show car and driveable street car. I’m still working on getting some performance modifications done, but so far, I’m satisfied with the way my car is turning out. I want to be a firm competitor in the Lexus class and hopefully become exposed. My ultimate goal for my car is to get a feature in a magazine.

Why you chose to modify your Lexus?
The smooth, timeless design of the first-generation SC led me to pursue customizing my car. The overall sleekness and attention I receive gives me a rush and motivation to do more.

I would like to thank everyone from ClubLexus that has helped me out and gave me advice; I would like to thank my brother Allan for helping me with my car; I would like to thank ALL my friends that have helped me and have given me advice through it all. I would like to give a shoutout to Team Illmatic…..we reppin strong!!
