What Events have you competed in?

N/A 1st year car will be in show

+ + +

What will be your next performance modification/upgrade?

Weds SA-70 18x10 +22, Coilovers, Fender work.

“All Show’, “All Go” or Both, Why?

All show for me. The Tiburon does not have enough base horsepower to make it truly a sound investment to seek higher performance gains. However, aesthetically, the Tiburon is a beautifully crafted machine and the modifications I will seek out and add on will only enhance what has been there all along.

Any Shout Outs?

First and foremost, I gotta give it up to the members of Team Xcessive Speedz Car Club for welcoming me in to the family and being patient while Voodoo is getting show ready! And I cannot forget the PNW’ers for the invite to the 4th Annual PNW cruise that we went to in May and especially to Chris Peaslee, Sean Moore, and Floyd and Stacy Wheaton for welcoming me into the group!

To Rob and Brian at Vertical Doors Inc. and Chris at FlyRyde, thank you for providing me with such a great opportunity to not only get some press for me and the Tib, but more importantly to help bring a newer and better kit to the Tiburon community. I always drop your names when people ask about them!

What will be your next performance modification/upgrade?

I think my next upgrade is going to be either seats, new rims, or a turbo kit  because I miss my old turbo- ha-ha!

+ + +

“All Show’, “All Go” or Both, Why?

Right now I am all show. Why you ask? Well, this is my third Scion tC and my first and second one I had a turbo in, but this one I headed in a different direction with my car and just wanted a nice clean ride.  The turbo was definitely fun, I loved it, but to go low and slow and have more money in my pocket, I decided to part ways.

Any Shout Outs?

To my girlfriend Nichole, I love you! And thank you for helping me with all my car crap and putting up with all of my bs! And to Prodigy Motorsports, which is the car club that I am affiliated with because they are my family and friends and I couldn’t ask for better people.

“All Show’, “All Go” or Both, Why?

I am all show!! She’s my daily driver I am not looking to go crazy performance wise. Every mod that’s been done is pretty much for show. I love going to car shows and spending the day hanging out cleaning my car rather than racing.

Any Shout Outs?

My boyfriend who has helped me make my car the way it is today, my dad and his auto body shop (Matt’s Auto) and my car club, Prodigy Motorsports.
