Jay Romano has been involved in the car scene for more than 20 years, and picked up his 2008 Acura TL as a daily driver while his other car was under construction. Of course, it wasn't long before the new daily turned into something more than he expected, and he dedicated the entire build to his mother who passed away shortly after the build started, adopting a Day of the Dead theme to celebrate her life.
