My passion started with lowriders in 1997 and it progressed to Imports in 1999, from than I was fascinated with the tuner community, it has been a never ending fascination with Japanese technology and it still continues til this day. All the cars ive owned have been highly complimented but the ultimate goal is to purchase my NSX. My 2004 S2000 is my current project which I plan to keep! As of now it will stay “Stanced” but I plan to make my NSX a “Track Monster”!!!! I am a very humble person who believes that one must take care of his family before all hobbies. Shoutout to the Violent Clique Fam!!!!

Giulio’s verdict: The Honda S2000 was an instant success from its debut and continues to be a much sought after car. Higher end Honda cars are pretty renowned for keeping their value and the S2000 is definitely no exception. Even for a car that is pushing 20 years old, it still keeps its almost modern day looks compared to a lot of cars on the road these days, if not better looking than a majority of them. With Honda’s reputation for reliability it’s no wonder that these are still a pretty penny for the later models. Nice purchase and Mendoza has kept this clean in my books, I like that carbon roof, rear diffuser and those wheels are just gorgeous. I’d like to see him turbo this rod though.
