After a break from Lexus we were in search of our next project! We looked at Cadillac ATSV/CTSV, Ford mustang GT350, Chevy Camaro ZL1, as well as others. We were leaning toward the CTS-V with carbon/Recaro’s. Though when it came time to make our decision we got a call from a friend at Lexus. They were offering us a chance to purchase a new GSF for a price we could not refuse.


Stoked to say the least!!

With such a great platform to start, I have been thinking on how to make this car more me…Stay Tuned!

Liquid platinum is by far the best color for the GS F. It blends so well with the dark carbon fiber and darker wheels. The tri-coat looks brilliant in the sun.

I have a liquid platinum as well.
