Hoang Le: 2008 Nissan 350Z

Hoang Le didn't even consider himself a car enthusiast before acquiring his 2008 Nissan 350Z. After a chance accident that left 2 wheels damaged and 2 tires blown on his daily-driven 2013 Honda Accord, he opted-in for a new set of VIP Modular wheels with aftermarket performance tires as replacements. It wasn't until that moment Le realized that the monthly car payments, in addition to the new modifications planned for the Accord, were over his budget. As a result, he gave the Accord to his younger brother.

A Google search for a new car lead Le to photos of the Stardast over-fenders, and it was no surprise that this encouraged him on a path towards a 2008 Nissan 350Z. Currently, the 350Z is body-styled with parts from Stardast, Seibon, APR and Sard Racing, powered by ARC engine goodies, rolling on a beautiful set of Work XSA-04C wheels wrapped in Toyo Proxes 4 Plus tires, and sitting on an Air Lift Performance air suspension kit.

The 350Z is far from complete: "I look forward to working with more people and other companies to aid me in my path and keep my build going," Le states.

"Anything is possible but can be extremely difficult if one is alone on an endless journey."
