Owner: Joe Dizon
Location: Virginia Beach, VA
Vehicle: 1999 Lexus GS400
Car Club Affiliation: NELOC

 

PAS: Are you part of a car club? Which one? What is the club's website? Explain the club briefly.

Owner: I’m part of NELOC (North East Lexus Owners Club). The website is Clublexus.com/forums/neloc-175. Neloc is a close group of Lexus owners based all over the East coast ranging from NC all the way up to Mass. that get together through out the year and share their enthusiasm and love of owning a Lexus. Some range from pure-ist stock to highly modified show and/or race versions. Our slogan is you come for the cars but you stay for the people.

 

PAS: "All Show", "All Go" or both? Why?

 

Owner: I would say both with more of a bais to "All Show". Its fun to do spirited driving everyone once in a while but Im getting older now.

While trying to do the "GO" extreme you end up breaking things and spending more money. With the show aspect I can enjoy the time that I and the shops put into the car without worrying about it.

 

PAS: Any Shout-outs?

Owner: Many thanks to my family especially my sister Monina who hates my car addiction but has stood by me throughout everything, Samantha my wonderful fiance for all of her support, Jay Belknap my tech advisor, Natchez at Projektphoto, Jaqueline Christine and Ben Atienza as photographers, my other friends, NELOC, Clublexus.com,Vipstylecars.com, insanestanceandoffset.blogspot.com,Ming at Fizz Autosports, Bryan at Sessions USA, Joey and Chad at Stock or Modified Bodyworks, Mike Jones, Rhode Island and Rocky at Botetourt Collision, Roxanne at Sunnybrook Auto Spa, and everyone else that has helped me get the car to this point you are not forgotten, and last but not least my daughter Alexis Marie!
