John On: 1998 Lexus LS400

John On purchased a 1998 Lexus LS400 in 2010 from an older woman on Craigslist from Santa Ana, California. On decided to modify the LS400 because there weren't many that were modified in the area. Additionally, On's daughter was about to be born and he had to transfer most of the parts from his other vehicle to the LS to turn it back to a family car. With inspiration from VIPSTYLECARS.COM (the source for VIP cars) and help of LAKustomz, an air suspension kit, wide body, custom paint job, and many other modifications were purchased and installed to achieve its current VIP-themed state.
