Jeffrey Knox - 2016 Hyundai Veloster Turbo
Everybody has Mustangs, Challengers, Chargers, Civics, etc ... I wanted something that wasn't common. I wanted to build something people don't see. I know it's not as fast as other cars, but I built this to be a canyon runner, not a racecar.

2016 Hyundai Veloster Turbo
I’ve been on this Earth for 40 years. Always had a solid interest in cars and photography. The older I get, the more I start to notice more of the little things. I've been in the military for 21 years and have a family of 5. I'm pretty busy most of the time, but allot myself time to take care of myself and my hobbies.
What got you into Cars?
I've always had people around me involved with cars. My dad grew up building and racing Chevelle's and the like. Today, my father in law has an old Nova and GTO. Plus, being in San Diego the car scene is huge as well. I've had 11 cars throughout my life. But this is only the second car I've ever messed around with. I have to say, it's been super fun and I've learned so much from working on a newer car.
Why this Car?
Everybody has Mustangs, Challengers, Chargers, Civics, etc ... I wanted something that wasn't common. I wanted to build something people don't see. I know it's not as fast as other cars, but I built this to be a canyon runner, not a racecar. This car is super fun on curvy roads. It hugs the pavement and has enough boost to accelerate out of a curve straight away. The thrill is great for such an "economical" car. Owning it gives me a sense of pride and accomplishment. People like it. I like what I've done to it and it's still not done.

Don't think you're going to build a supercar out of a Veloster. Go into it by knowing you can make this your own build and you don't have to be like other people. Don't listen to the haters. Use them to encourage and inspire what you want to do with your build.
Modifying this car has been fun and quite easy. Everything I've done has been bolt-on and made to fit. Be careful when modifying the years 2012-2015, as they are known for poor internals. 2016 and above is where it’s at. Have fun with it!

What makes it Unique?
One, it's orange. Haha. I also believe that it's not overly cosmetically modded and more performance-based. To each their own when it comes to modifying. I tried to keep my simple with a couple of cosmetics. I think people look more at the passion when it's not "riced" out.

Who did the work?
I've done all the work myself with a buddy or two to help. The only thing done by a shop was mounting my wheels.
New lighting coming in. Plan on having a newer sound system installed. This is my daily, so not too much more. I'm always changing my vinyl layouts, as I have my own machine to do so.
I am the Vice-President of Unique Visonz here in San Diego. We are about 40 members strong and started to go nationwide.
What do you get from the scene?
These clubs, my club, gave me a great sense of pride. We have given back to our communities by supporting local businesses and running charity donation car shows/meets for underprivileged children and families. The car community can do huge things for their towns/cities as long as they do it right.
