VEHICLE STORY

My father bought this car in 2008. He travelled to Maryland from Connecticut just for this magnetic gray metallic Camry with the 2GR-FE engine and JBL premium sound system.

I learned to drive in this car, and in 2011, my dad gave the car to me as a high school graduation gift. The car had approximately 60,000 miles at the time.

During the summer of 2012, I began to learn how to work on cars. With zero knowledge whatsoever, I began to slowly modify the Camry, albeit not in the best taste.

Later that year, I brought the car to Texas, where I was going to school. It was there that I met a friend that introduced me to the JDM and VIP scene. It was then that my VIP inspiration began.

Since then, I have grown. The car now has close to 130,000 miles and has slowly been built over time. As of 2017, the car has won numerous awards, including Best Toyota at StanceNation Texas and Wekfest Texas.

There are still many plans for this car. Some ask, "why a Camry?" But they do not understand the history of this car and I. The car is special to me, and I will not rest until it is completely built out.
