Kurtis is from Owego, New York, a small town a couple of hours from Syracuse, New York. He served as a mechanic at a dealership for 4 years and a detailer for 1. He was getting sick and tired of working on cars too quickly, so he then moved into the Plumbing industry. Currently doing new construction plumbing.

Kurtis grew up with his Dad in the car scene. He was the biggest influence on Kurtis’ passion for cars. His Dad had a 1990 Dodge Colt Lowrider. They travelled all over for shows. They used to go to Friday night meets and he fell in love with cars. Growing up in an era of the Fast and Furious franchise, that also had a huge impact on his love for imports. Though he will always have a soft spot for US domestic rides. He also spent hours playing Need For Speed Underground 2 after school every day or when he had free time.

So what made Kurtis choose this car specifically? Well at the time all he knew was the prototype for this vehicle. He didn’t know if it would actually be released as it was shown online. But seeing it in person made him love it that much more. The first picture he got of it in his head was it being lowered on wheels.

In high school, he had a ‘97 Honda Civic Hatchback. He did a d16z6 swap with a chipped ECU, lowered it then did the bodywork along with the 99-00 front end swap. His Dad and he painted the whole car and it turned out amazing. Kurtis ended up needing to sell it, unfortunately, moved on to a cheap daily which also ended up getting lowered and wheels. Ever since high school, he’s been needing to modify every car he drives. Stock vehicles will forever be boring to him.

Kurtis built this car for himself and nobody else. When he drives the car he feels happy. Watching kids smile when he drives by makes him beyond happy due to the fact that was him growing up and now he’s that guy that kids look up to around his area. When he sees people taking pictures with his car or of his car it amazes him, they took their time to enjoy and love his car just as much as he does. Kurtis will never forget the day when he was at a meet and a kid’s mom came up to him and asked if her little boy could get a picture sitting inside. He talked Kurtis’ ear off on how he wanted to be like all of us one day. Building his car for his love and passion for cars is the biggest reason he continues to do it. It's an escape from everyday life when he works on it or sits in the driver seat.

When purchasing any car if you plan on modifying it, look into the aftermarket industry. When he first bought the car new, not a lot of parts were out at the time which was very frustrating. Now four and half years later, he’s thankful that parts weren’t out right away. Being able to build the car with every brand name part out was much more pleasing.

The hood is what sets this car apart. It’s what draws people to the car. The clear hood puts this car on another level. People are completely amazed by it. Being able to see the complete engine bay with all the carbon fibre covers. The engine bay has to be his favourite part of the car, to begin with.

He has done most of the work by himself but without the help of Draggin Style Customs, the trunk setup would not be what it is today. It turned out amazing. The shop does crazy work on every single trunk setup that they do. Not one setup that comes out of their garage comes out the same. If you are looking for a killer setup be sure to check him on Instagram @dragginstylecustoms. Also, a special shoutout to Space Related Custom for the custom painted air tank. Using tropical glitz paint and doing crazy old school lowrider designs.

So what’s next for this ride? Future plans include having a complete carbon fibre front end with a carbon fibre wide body. He would like to get a candy colour close to what his Aegean blue is now to keep the true colour of the vehicle. Would love to go to 3 pc wheels when doing the Widebody. He also plans to do a complete interior overhaul this winter. He is going to take the car back to Draggin Style Customs in April for him to do an audio setup in the trunk and upgrade all the speakers. Finally, Kurtis wants to change out the seats to some custom Status Racing seats as well.

Car clubs are like family. You go to shows, meets, have tech days, help each other not only with car-related stuff but oftentimes personal stuff. Team Nv US is that family to Kurtis. He’s been with this club since 2018 is a prospective member, becoming a full-fledged member this past year, and was finally promoted to Sergeant At Arms for the New York Chapter. He loves this team/family. ‘It’s truly home wherever you go to a show with another chapter. The team is very helpful and always there to listen and give advice. Be sure to check us out on Instagram @team_nvus and @nvus_newyork!’

The scene has done more for Kurtis than anything else. Being an escape from reality is the biggest help of all. Creating new friendships at every meet or show you go to. Creating bonds with people that just can’t be broken due to the love of the same things. He couldn’t be more thankful for the Team NvUS New York Chapter, being there for him for breaking down, working on the cars and even personal issues. “At the end of the day, we can all escape the same way. Cruising together all over the states and being what outsiders call us ‘Menace To Society’ all because we are different.”

He has a few dream cars because let's be honest you can’t just have one. The Acura NSX, Toyota Supra, Nissan Skyline R34, and he would love a Honda CRX.
