Was there any unusual circumstances around how you acquired your car?
I built this car mostly in 2009. I’ve since then sold it twice and bought it back each time. It’s here to stay.

Was there more work on your car than you anticipated? Did you find a bucket of wiring worms, find some secret hidden problems…..
When I bought it back this last time, there was a lot of small issues(fire hazards) that needing fixing.

Are there any unique mods on your car? Hyper-rare parts, custom made parts…
Oem kouki 180sx aero and polished OG TE37 in 17/18 staggered are amongst some of the nicer parts of my car.

Would you consider your car done in its current form? Or do you have a list of “to dos” still left?
I’d say I’m about done with the car. There’s always revisions but I’m content as it is.

I met my then girlfriend, and now wife in this very car.
