Juan “Sicarlos” Juaregui picked up this black beauty in ’07 and the two have been together ever since. How something makes transition from an idea to a reality is amazing, and this is no different. Juan set his sights on a goal, and that was to build a landmark in multiple car scenes in one. “The purpose of this build is to show other enthusiasts & builders that you can build a car that can be street able but still have plenty of appeal.”

When a duet like this comes together, it’s a special thing. Juan purchased this car when it was bone stock, just a rookie to the streets. The irony is that in a way, so was he. He didn’t know what a car meet was or that events were even happening regularly. Some of you may laugh about it, but when a man and his car both learn from one another the way these two have it reminds us in a way why we all enjoy it so much.
Playing the role of both the teacher and the student naturally leads to frustrations somewhere down the line, to some it could mean the end of their build. Luckily that wasn’t the case here. “I have learned a lot this couple of years, I came a long way. I’m so proud of myself and my build.”
As proud as he is, Juan and his ride aren’t done just yet. He still has a few ideas in store for them. “Future plans for this car are, a Bags System, Roll Cage, Bride Seats, Supercharger and, Type R Rear Conversion.” These two are on a journey to create and inspire, and it’s nice to see that they are doing it with originality.
