Tell us the story behind your ride. What made you pick this particular one? Where did you find i t?  Well, this was given to me by my lovely parents, bless their hearts.  When I received the vehicle I was overwhelmed by me getting a first car (of course).  Then I began to realize this tC needed some love, so I immediately got myself a job and began putting money into it to make it stand out and live up to my expectations. Describe the modifications you've made. Where did you start, what’s the most recent mod and what motivated it? Nothing crazy on the engine just your standard cold air intake  you know to add that additional +1 hp on the car and of course your standard ricer exhaust.  The first purchase was actually the black OEM spoiler for the car then I swapped the lights out for something more sleek as I had a vision to make the color of the car contrast with black.   Of all the mods you’ve made, which do you think offers the biggest bang for the buck?  I really enjoyed the rims and tires I purchased for the car it really made the car different in my eyes. How did you go about selecting the specific parts for this build? Any installation tips to share?   I had a vision from the moment I laid eyes on her, and for the most part I fulfilled my mission to make the little tC one clean car. What are you planning next? As much as I could continue to improve the car in a infinite amount of ways. I decided to stop and focus on bigger and better things. Don't worry still car related as I plan to purchase a Nissan 370z in the upcoming months.   What’s been the biggest challenge with this build?  The lack of power and drive-train *cough front wheel cough* have been bothering the most to be honest.  What did I expect though the car was not mean't to be fast as the vehicle has given me good fuel economy and great memories with being one reliable beast.  Not ever has it given more a problem and for that I thank the people of Toyota.
