Randy Riggs

Randy Riggs was about to become a newlywed and wanted to purchase something big to mark the momentous occasion. The year was 2003 and the Infiniti G35 Coupe had just hit the market. The look was cutting edge for its time time so Mr. and Mrs. Riggs decided it was the perfect celebratory gift for the two of them. They picked up a 2003 Inifiniti G35 Coupe the day before their wedding and surprised everybody at the reception.
