Alan Castro got involved in the car scene through his dad. "He builds and modifies Hondas," mentions Castro. He bought his 1992 Nissan Laurel from Japan, and his inspiration to customize it comes Japanese D1 street legal cars from the early 2000s. "I decided to modify the Laurel because there aren't a lot of Laurels out (there)," states Casto, "especially one with an RB25DET swapped into it."

His previous builds included a Nissan R32 Skyline, Toyota Celsior, 1992 Nissan 240SX and Subaru BRZ.

The Laurel was built between he and his friends, and with the help of MXPI Tuning, Touge Factory and Stance Suspension.
