James Gilliam grew up going to car shows in his dad's 1969 Jaguar E-Type, so the passion for cars runs in his family. A little more than two years ago, Gilliam picked up his 2004 Subaru Forester, and began building it himself with a handful of friends who are working on theor own projects as well. He has taken this time to transform his Forester to match his own style.
