“I have always loved modified cars,” said owner Mike Foxwell. “When I first saw the 350Z I know I had to get one. It took a while for me to get it, but finally pulled the trigger in 2006. It started off slowly and then to mod bug bit, and bit hard. I was only going to do wheels and a spoiler, but then you find it hard to stop.

Beyond the popular two-tone treatment, Andy Wong’s ’05 Infiniti G35 Coupe took a departure from what we typically see around here. Usually, heavy audio builds have no power adders and although this one doesn’t have a twin turbo setup, it does have a supercharger.
