Something About Yourself
I have experience in fender rolling, bodywork, and paint.

Why did you pick your car?
I didn’t need anything flashy and wanted to save gas. Also, I love wagons.

How did you evolve in the car scene?
2 years ago I worked in retail at Target electronics. Paycheck after paycheck I saved up to buy car parts for my 09 Corolla XRS. After realizing I wasn’t happy with my boring job. I quite my position and started working at my father’s body shop in San Bruno. Eventually people started asking me if we did full paintjobs and custom stuff and sooner or later I became the go-to guy for practically everything cosmetic.

Why or When do you find yourself driving slow?
Ummmm, considering I basically drive a glorified Prius, I think I’ve always been driving pretty slow not because I want to but because my car isn’t fast. I was all about that hypermilage life until after I slammed it on coils. Then my mpgs went down the drain and now I drive slow because I’m static and I hover over asphalt.

Anything YOU want to specify about your vehicle
Absolutely pretty much everything was done by my own two hands on my car including rebuilding my wheels. I give props to anyone who works on they’re own car rather than paying someone else to do it.

Something you want to say to the viewers?
Above all, I appreciate anyone who’s honest and hardworking. It’s all about putting your own tears into your bucket rather than someone else’s tears. I wanted to show the world that it isn’t too bad driving a hybrid and that you can make the most of it by taking the money you save on gas to buy car parts. From not having anyone else for inspiration on this chassis, I practically had to do trial and error on achieving camber and fitment. Thanks to anyone who takes the time to appreciate my build.
