2. Where are you from?(and ethnicity if you feel comfortable)
Los Angeles, CA

3. What was your first car?
A hand-me-down Toyota 4Runner. First car I purchased on my own was the 2nd Gen Acura CL

4. Why did you pick a 2nd Gen Acura CL as your car
I grew up in a family who loved Hondas and Acuras and naturally I fell in love with these cars. When it was my time to purchase my first car, I looked for three criteria: v6, 6MT and it must be an Acura or Honda. Not a lot of cars fit this criteria that were in my price range, but the CL's rarity was the deciding factor.

5. What motivated you to Mod your Acura and what is your favorite mod up to date.
The CL was rare and unique which meant aftermarket parts were scarce. This didn't prevent me from modding, instead it motivated me to mod it even more because anything I did to the car would be unique. My favorite mod, by far, would be the Custom 99-01 TL lip kit.

6 What is one thing you regret not doing and that you had done for the CL?
Finishing up the supercharger build.

7. Any special thanks that you would like to give (members of the forum, certain shops or individuals that inspired you or helped you)..?
Donald Tran (ll1l2l1l2lll), Kenny Chan(kensukikatayo), Steve Hong(CG2PROJECT), SoCal Acurazine
