John Nguyen once sold his first Acura Integra Type R, and he knew he wanted another one the moment it left his hands. A few years ago, he finally found a stock Acura Integra Type R, albeit in a little bit of a rough shape. He decided he would build this car with no shortcuts taken, and dedicate the build to his friend who passed away in the car scene. Inspired by the top Honda builders out there, Nguyen is motivated to push his build to the next level.
