ROTM Oct/Nov: sonni_kuba

Congrats to Jakub for winning this months ride of the month! It was a good battle between the three contestants so thanks to all who voted.

Check out his Member's Ride Thread to see more about his car.













Interview:

1. Is this your first car?
Nope
2. How did you end up with this car?
Wife's side of family was trying to trade it in at a stealership.
3. When did you first start modifying cars?
Right after getting my driver's license
4. What was your biggest set back/problem while trying to modify your car?
Trying to locate a shop that had the balls to pull off an engine swap AND auto-manual switch.
5. Why do you do it? Why not leave it stock?
These cars have so much potential, and look, sooo much better modded. It would be injustice to leave them running stock.
6. What other mods do you have planned for the car?
A lot ... please see Future Mods section.
7. Any other cars you're tinkering with?
I've learnt that if you want the best parts and service for your car, then this becomes a very expensive hobby very quickly. Therefore, I'm force limiting myself to one car at a time.
8. What's your favorite thing about your car, specifically? Which money do you feel was your best investment?
Hands down, the 6 speed swap, and J32 engine.
9. Is there anybody you would like to credit or thank for helping you along the way?
The online resources, including this forum, have been invaluable. Big props to Defcon Racing for tackling this project, and probably future ones too.

Congrats! You had my vote, but it was such a tough choice. No one can say you haven't put in the work for it, though.

Re: ROTM Oct/Nov: sonni_kuba

I have a weak spot for silver coupes and your car was so perfectly planned out with the mods, it was the obvious choice. Congratulations on the win!
