AAC: What made you get into the Import Scene?


CV: I've been into imports since the mid nineties. I had a FC Mazda RX-7 and an Mx-3 that I modified lightly, but they were never enough for me.

AAC: The car is very tastefully done, what are your favorite mods on the 350Z?


CV: My favorite mod is definitely the CCFL headlights. I modded them myself, so they have all my blood and tears sealed up in them. I try to make everything I do to my car blend together without ruining the original style of the car. I don't try to change the cars look. I want to enhance it.

AAC: What mods are in the future for the 350Z?


CV: Next up is a 6 piston StopTech Big Brake Kit with yellow calipers. The yellow sounds crazy, but trust me it's gonna look sick! After that comes the APS twins.

AAC: What car would you want to own next and why?


CV: I'd love to see what the G37 or next Z is gonna turn out like, but I'm thinking about doing a 2JZ-GTE twin turbo swap in an Lexus SC300 though. I had a SC400 but the power sucked. I like to keep it interesting when it comes to my cars.
