Sherrod Mervin had to do a lot of travelling for work, so his inner big-kid dream of a Ford F-650 just wasn't a practical choice. His next choice was a car that was reliable and low maintenance that he could have fun with and modify, so he chose the 2014 Toyota Camry. With a bit of imagination, he has transformed the Camry into a truly one of a kind vehicle.

FAVORITE MODIFICATION:
"My favorite mod would have to be the remote controlled gun turret with the remote controlled search light. It definitely stands out when driving around town. It's something you don't see everyday. Either you get a thumbs up and a huge excited smile or some sweet little old lady with wide eyes, clutching her pearls, and flooring it to get away. I spent so many sleepless nights trying to figure out how to make my sketches become a reality."

FUTURE MODIFICATIONS:
"I'm retro fitting another set of headlights with even more lighting tricks. I'm finally starting to work on my interior. For my next theme I'm going partial VIP, my audio system will receive a major overhaul. The interior and trunk will finally get upgrades. I'm already sketching the new paint/graphics design for the exterior, which looks sinister, a few engine modifications, (still wishing for a supercharger) and definitely wide body with deep dish wheels. Only time will tell."
