I wasn’t really into the whole import scene you could say until I met some of my oldest friends; Vincent Gonzalez, Kevin Narine, James Neblett. Between the three’s build, I quickly became hooked with modifying imports, primarily Hondas. It especially inspired me to own a S2000.

With the help of Drew Turner, Brad Brooks, and the rest of Team Deft Motion and NvUS, I quickly began my road of bringing my dream S2000 in my head to real life. It’s been a long journey but at the same time have so much farther I plan to take this car. I one day hope to have one of the most elitist S2000s on the east coast.
John’s Verdict: This is honestly one of the cleanest s2000 builds I’ve seen. I think what really attracts me to this build is the perfect mix of form and function. I’ve been thinking about getting an s2000 in the future, and this just might have made up my mind!
