Manny Diaz: 2007 Chrysler 300C Hemi

Manny Diaz has always loved the car scene since he was a kid, but he never able to take part in it until he got older. "When I was in my early-mid teens I did my first build, an off-road 1980 Jeep CJ-7, remembers Diaz. "It was a junk build that I had just laying in my backyard." Diaz took it upon himself to paint it, modify the engine and transmission, and change the gearing to handle the new tires he mounted.

"The first vehicle I bought was a 2007 Chrysler 300C," mentions Diaz, "I found it in 2010 and I've never looked back since. I've only kept moving it forward and tried to be the best." After some time with the car, Diaz came to the decision of start modifying it. He saw many other Chrysler owners highly modifying their car, and started to think of his own ideas and style. "I wanted to go with it, and so far it has worked out great for me every time. People see the 300C and they love it. I get great compliments."

Diaz decided to modify the 300C because he wanted to build something for the years to come that he could be proud of. "I want to continue to love [it[ as the years go by. The people that have helped with his build have been his family and sponsors throughout the years. "My dad inspires me and my build. He has always been an amazing artist when it came to painting and designing, and I wanted to leave something behind, like him, that people can say I was great [in]. Diaz believes his ideas and visions for all his builds have always come out great.
