Daymon Hoffman - 2013 Scion TC
I originally bought this car because of Toyota's reliability, and fuel mileage, it was a manual and had fairly low miles. When I initially got the car, my mentality was, “This will work,” because I was tired of driving an automatic and was dying for another third pedal.

2013 Scion TC
At the moment, the car is 100% stock, driveline-wise, and has been strictly an aesthetic build. The current goal is just to have a clean, reliable daily driver, but plans to add a boost at a later date aren’t completely off the table.
My name is Daymon Hoffman, I am 30 years old, from the small town of Star, Mississippi. Yes, the same one is mentioned in Faith Hill’s country song. I am currently a technician for Audi. I started this profession to spend time with my uncle a child, who was like a second father to me. He and I were extremely close, and spending time turning wrenches with him strengthened that bond even more.
Then, as I got older, it began turning into a hobby, from there it became an obsession and went on to become a lifestyle. At 18, I decided to turn it into a profession. This journey began as a service writer at a local quick lube establishment. From there, I got a job offer from Global Aviation Services as an Aviation Maintenance Technician working on the ground equipment, which was my first professional automotive job. After roughly 4 months after my initial employment, I was offered a job as a quick lube technician at the local Toyota dealership. It wasn’t ideal, but I saw it as an opportunity to get my foot in the door.
After 14 months there, management made it clear that I wouldn’t be moved up to apprentice technician any time soon, so I decided to pursue other options. After sitting down and speaking with the service manager at Infiniti, we reached an agreement and my employment there began, starting as a lube technician, moving to apprentice technician, and on to full technician within a year and a half. 6 months later, I received a job offer from Audi, which I took and was the best career decision I’ve made to date.
I originally bought this car because of Toyota's reliability, and fuel mileage, it was a manual and had fairly low miles. When I initially got the car, my mentality was, “This will work,” because I was tired of driving an automatic and was dying for another third pedal. Everything lined up to get this one, called my wife and told her we were taking a 7 hour round trip that night after work to go pick it up. Once I actually got the car in my possession, the more I drove it and looked at it, the more I fell in love with it.

I modified this car because in the words of my lovely wife, who for some reason has stuck by me through countless vehicles, build, long nights, and countless dollars spent, “I lack the ability to keep anything I own stock.” The moment I laid eyes on this car, I told my wife, “This is the nicest car I’ve owned, it has no issues whatsoever, has been properly maintained, and I’m going to leave it alone,” to which she replied, “Are you trying to convince me, or yourself?” Of course, it didn’t happen. I began looking at parts on the trip home, and within 24 hours the build began.
The second-generation Scion tC is always been a car that I’ve wanted but hasn’t been very high on the list. I chose to modify this one mainly to be different, as if owning one in my area wasn’t enough, because the second generations are few and far between here. Once I bought mine, I started seeing them here and there, more and more often, so I knew I had to change it up, especially after adding the spoiler and being mistaken for the unsightly one a couple of towns over at least once a week.
