I’m John Romanyak, 28 from Columbus Ohio. Was never really into cars much growing up, I raced motocross. About age 24 I got sick of racing and having nothing to show for it so I sold all my bikes and trailer and looked at a Evo, STI and a Genesis Coupe. All I knew is I wanted a turbo’d car. I got a killer deal on my genesis and it was all stock, 1 owner… I originally wanted to make it a ‘fast car’ but learned quickly unless you rebuild the motor you can’t go fast, so stance it was. This is the first car I’ve ever modified, and I didn’t know anything about cars when I got into this scene… I’ve done all the work by myself on my car. Honestly I don’t think I’d ever sell it because it has a special place in my heart and one day I’d like to hand the car down to my son. I’ve met so many cool people in this scene, who I consider family now. Also Shout to the fam in GoonSquad and Battlegang
