Brandon Hamid: 2006 Toyota Matrix

Brandon Hamid has been surrounded by the Toyota culture since being a young boy, so it's no surprise he stayed true to that path when purchasing his first car. Although it wasn't until he stepped into the dealership that he found the 2006 Toyota Matrix. “I knew I wanted something different,” Hamid writes, “most people would go and buy an MR2, Celica or Supra. I wanted something that would stand out and draw a different kind of attention.” Attention he’s gained, with over a dozen awards and counting. Hamid’s build is almost complete, with remaining modifications being an air eide suspension and 2JZ engine swap.
