I was born and raised in Jamaica, moved to united states around 02-03 after high school to West Covina, CA. Spent a little time in Georgia before permanently residing in Florida. I was always into and around cars from my early days in Jamaica but got more in tuned once I moved to Florida. Started watching and playing fast and furious probably one of my biggest influence.
I have modded every single one of my cars but the Aristo is the one you can say I went crazy on.
For this car specifically I wanted something different and that’s exactly what I got a little bit of luxury, power and of course the right hand drive. My biggest issues during the process was probably waiting on parts from japan. This project took me about a year it debut at wekfest palm beach in December 2015.

Giulio’s verdict: Toyota Aristo, a car mainly chosen for either drifting or VIP style. What Jessie has done to this one is almost what I would have done if owned an Aristo, the only thing I would different is add a 326power wing, maybe gone for a different body colour, a little less camber and something a little different with the wheels. These aare things that almost everyone would most definitely has little differences about. Saying that though I do really like this and there’s quite a bit of inspiration here for my car if I decide to keep it long enough.
