Its sport you have to love it

Was there any unusual circumstances around how you acquired your car?
Only unusual circumstance is that this car used to drive around me when I was a child. The car used to belong to our neighbor.

Was there more work on your car than you anticipated? Did you find a bucket of wiring worms, find some secret hidden problems…..
Month or two after I bought this car I had to rebuild the engine. That is the biggest issue so far.

Are there any unique mods on your car? Hyper-rare parts, custom made parts…
Kinda… I made the starlight headliner.
Custom 3D print dashboard vents
Custom made front & rear Splitter

Would you consider your car done in its current form? Or do you have a list of “to dos” still left?
Its not done and never will be, for me sky is the limit. This Winter I’m gonna built a more powerful engine and get bigger brakes and a proper exhaust. I still want to have a more powerful stereo. Maybe widebody some day,  different wheels….. the list is endless.

What is the biggest problem you ran into on your build?
Time and money, other than that, there is nothing I can’t find a way to do it myself.

If you had to do it again, would you build the same car?
Only thing I would change is I would be looking for AWD version.

Are you apart of a club or crew with your car?
I’m the leader of Aezakmicrew. My influence was my friends from the group, which helped me a lot.

Is there any part/mod on your car you had to do a few times, or installed and then removed?
I don’t know if it counts, but I am on my third version of the interior and trunk.


What is your favorite part on your car?
Exhaust and sound system.

What’s the best memory you had in your car?
Wining a first place trophy.
