John Botero picked up this 1998 Acura Integra around 8 years ago as a replacement for his wife's car, but as time went on, it wasn't long before the modifications started. The build was a several year long family affair, completed with the help of his brother and two of his three sons. With inspiration being taken from all over, the idea was to show his boys that hard work can achieve your dreams if you take your time and do things right.
