I have always been in to building fast cars, in my younger years I rebuilt muscle cars, and was driving a restored 1972 LT1 380 horsepower Nova SS on March 25th 2004, While sitting at a light, I was hit by a large truck going 45 mph.. Needless to say, the car was destroyed.. And so was my back… After several surgeries, I had the itch to get some speed under me again.. I purchased the Tuscani in January 2005, with no other purpose than to hot rod it. My first purchase was a Injen CAI, and from the moment I put that on and heard the noise.. I had the bug.. This was my first import, and I wanted to give it the muscle car look…



Next step was the supercharger, after a mishap with a belt coming off.. It was time for a new motor… While Hyundai was putting a new motor in the car, I purchased another Delta and began to rebuild it.. With the intentions to make a monster. Once that engine was completed, the stock one was removed and the under hood transformation started.. Over the last year, I have put many hours of blood, sweat and tears in to the car. As well as a ton of cash to make it the way it looks today. I tried as hard as possible to make it race, and not rice.. Future mods to include a Mussa Body Kit, CF hood of some sort, and a full race interior with roll cage and the like.. Of course the boost will be going up, but at 250 horses, it is already scary..




I have gained a lot of friend on NT and a lot of ideas from the members here, thank you for this honor… Special thanks to Tibboy2003 for being a true friend, Sorensilk, Balla and big thanks to DK, for the day to day inspiration to continue to do this to my car… Some day,, my car will look like a Frog On Fire.. bawhahahahaha

Your car is a benchmark for mine. I think that's about as good as any compliment I can give.

Actually, there's one thing I would do to it. 05 Tails, but they're not even necessary. The entire car flows so incredibly well.
