Manny’s Show stoppin & Boosted tC

Scion. United by individuality. That is the slogan we Scion owners live by, some for better and some for worse by the form in which we build our cars from bone stock to fully formed show vehicles. In this very rare case, Scion tc owner Manny, has taken scion pride to the full extent by a combination of precise decision making for parts that the finished product looks as stunning as this. From the very words of Manny himself, he states that his tc was given to him as a present for graduating high school. Blessed much? I think so! I can relate to him in the very same way as my parents bought me my tc for the same reason. His tc was quite frankly the very first one I really got to meet and really kept me inspired to modify mine to this very date. The way the car scene really degrades these cars just because they have a scion badge and the few rotten apples that make us look bad out there should really think twice about this tc. . .
One of the most recent and major change he has done, and which I have had the opportunity to help with, was to mount his SSR Sp3 wheels, a huge step up from a previous Volk evo 3 setup that just scream cleanliness and add fine touches to the body lines of the car.

As tuners, we’ve gone through those times in our modding lives when we have added so many unappealing parts and decals that we forget we may have turned into a true ricer! Manny says he relates to this and adds that, “my car wouldn’t be where it is right now if it wasn’t for the people that supported me in everything I did. I would like to thank my parents, and most importantly my girlfriend who was there for me through thick and thin. “In the scion community there aren’t many tc’s so well executed like Manny’s, and he sure as hell makes me proud to be an owner and better yet a friend.
