The Pursuit, put on by Longo Lexus, Corporate Lexus and Club Lexus of Socal was this pass weekend. While most of the cars were expected from the big vendors of AutoFashion, VIP AutoSalon, and PG Motoring, I walked the parking lot looking for "grass-root" builds. Funny, one of the few cars I was actually excited about was this gen1 IS300 own by "Guillermo" on Club Lexus. First impression goes a long way and when I caught the car in the distance, I knew it was something unique and special. The plasters of stickers obviously caught my eye. This is a common trend in the Honda and VW culture. I've seen old school Bimmers use decals to hold cracked lips together. To me it is a free-form of artistic expression, almost a rebellious state. I found that to be bold and super-trick.
The bumper is actually JDM AirWalker for the IS300 Sportcross. You will notice the smaller opening for the fog lights. The black and white theme is carried throughout the entire car with black housing headlights, tinted taillights, white Buddy Club wheels rocking +23mm offsets and a Big Blue shift knob to break the contrast.
Funny, with all the high-dollar VIP builds, this car had me coming back for more. Perhaps, owning an Altezza long ago may have been influential or the fact that I have been looking more into the "grass-root' builds of Hondas and VWs lately.. I give Guillermo major style points for building a car without any rules.
Just have fun, build it for yourself.
