David Quang 2006 Honda S2000 TBGLIVE PASMAG lead

David Quang of Winnipeg, Manitoba, has long had a passion for Hondas. He has worked on eight custom cars, including a 2008 Honda Civic Si fa5 and a 2008 Acura RL Elite, but it is clear that this 2006 Honda S2000 is his baby. David comes from a family of mechanics and after completing part of his mechanic apprenticeship, he began to work for Honda as a sales manager. Although he modified and drove other Hondas, it has always been the S2000 that he desired; even at 16, he knew it was the car for him. He's been saving and planning since he started working and, in 2011, he was able to purchase the car of his dreams. He has dedicated the last four years to customizing the S2000, pouring about $70,000 into the car in the process. Along with his brother Donald and friend Benji Tran, everything from the chassis to the suspension has been modified.

The fender flares and wheels, which give the illusion of width, are his favorite parts of the car. Many of the parts David used are difficult to acquire in North America, but he wanted to use only high quality Japanese parts to set this build apart. This attention to detail and desire for perfection made the project time consuming, which was a challenge as David did all the work himself while working full-time. David credits his club, the G106 crew, for providing inspiration throughout the course of the build. They have certainly helped him achieve his goal of turning heads on the road!
