This car was purchased by John and Sharon's son, Jason in June of 2001, bone stock. He began the process of customizing the vehicle and had completed the interior and installed a body kit and air struts, along with some engine work. He had a lot of plans for the car, but passed away August 9, 2004. The couple decided to finish the car as he had planned and show it in his memory. They completed the suicide door installation, the molded one piece front end, turbo charger and polished engine parts. This vehicle has won many "Best of Show" trophies at "Import Face Off" competitions and many other awards.
