Christian Garland bought the 2003 Acura RSX Type S in Fargo, North Dakota in July of 2015. At first, Garland thought of the car as an early birthday present to himself, "I heard the VTEC for the first time and I was hooked!" Shortly after, a red AEM CAI was installed, and the decision to add a couple other modifications in the color red proceeded. "I knew that black and red was going to be my color combination," mentions Garland. More additions were installed on the RSX, and Garland found himself going to little meets and shows in Fargo and surrounding areas of North Dakota. "After doing it for a year, I knew that this was one way that I could personally be creative and showcase to the world what I have envisioned in my head."

Garland's inspiration comes from within when it comes to building his car. "Whenever I go on the Internet to look at ideas for the car, I think of even more ideas that I can do with the car. I decide what I want to do with the car, and it usually takes me a few times of 'No, I don't think that I want to do it' and 'Yes, I want to do it now' before I usually pull the trigger on parts." When all is said and done, Garland really likes how the car is currently set up, and he knows that the future is going to be even more insane with his build. Plans for a CX Racing turbo kit, XKGlow underbody glow kit, VIS Terminator carbon fiber hood and many more modifications are in the near future.
