"The Perfect Balance"

Purchasing a car is a personal experience. It involves a purpose as well as it reflects the owner's identity. When Hector Levario of Palmdale, California put together his clean 2007 Honda S2000 his only intention was to purchase a fun daily driver. Believe it or not Hector's first car was actually a foxbody Mustang. Hector's older brothers were into Mustangs and he grew up near LACR (Palmdale). He had driven the Mustang for 6 years and was in the process of an engine and transmission makeover when he went into the market for a daily driver S2K. He then purchased his unmolested S2000 in Vegas without any intentions of modding it. Then the "mod bug" hit him and what we see here is the result of his flawless piece of machinery. Alot of his styling was inspired from watching Japanese Hot Version films. The reason I dub this build story the "Perfect Balance" is because his car is wild enough to give you the wow factor while still being able to be a functional daily driver that can be used on spirited canyon runs and cruises. He still maintains a balancing act by owning both a USDM monster and a JDM touge warrior. When building a car, individuals sometimes overbuild a car to the point where the engine is too illegal to be on the streets and paranoia governs their daily routine. Also sometimes individuals get a bit carried away with the "show factor" and create a car that they don't drive in fear of getting door dings or being stolen. The overbuilding of modded cars often results in the individual parting out or selling the car without actually enjoying it. Hector was able to execute styleability and personal enjoyment catered soley to his needs. Hector's future plans include adding Voltex aero, canards and TE37's which are already on its way but in the meantime let us indulge in his current clean setup. The perfect formula of daily driveability infused with quality functional parts. 2 888 56565 645645 6575675 4 4rf 5 Mod List: Exterior: Factory Oem Ap2 lip.
