Hi, my name is sean,
I'm 34 years old and I'm from The Dallas Oregon and for a living, I'm a maintenance director at a senior home.
So here is a little about how I got into the car scene. I have always been into cars ever since I can remember all I ever wanted was hot wheels, RC cars, and monster trucks. As I got older I went from toys to import magazines like super street and import tuner looking threw them finding what car I wanted when I got older and what I wanted to do to it.
So after a while, I fell in love with the 92 honda Civic hatchback and I started to make parts lists for everything I wanted to do to it from body mods to engine and interior everything. Started playing video games and all I ever wanted to do was modify cars in my video games like need for speed and mid night club.
Around that time which was 2001 the first fast and furious came out and I was hooked went to the movie theatre at least 12 times just to watch that movie and the car that stood out to me in the movie was Hector's 92 hatchback when he pulled up to (the racers edge) in his gold hatchback at that point, I said one day I will own one. I fell in love with that era.
The lights, body kits, outrageous sound systems, and all the customization on every ride, the cars themselves could tell you a story. It was awesome. When I was finally old enough to get my own car I got an 83 Cadillac Eldorado wasn't what I wanted but I was so happy I had my own car I could do something with whatever I wanted to do so I started small with it tinted the windows put a sound system in it but it just wasn't what I wanted so I ended up selling it and getting a truck.
Going to fast forward to the first car I loved and that was an 89 Honda civic hatchback finally was able to start building a ride I was truly interested in so I lowered it put wheels and tires on it, painted it, tinted the windows then I lost interest in it so few more cars went by and I finally ended up with a 92 Civic hatchback that I ended up doing a boosted b18b1 motor swap in it, Tein suspension, wheels and tires, del sol seats, and a sound system well that car was short-lived got in a bad way had to sale it to pay bills.
After that I had a BMW I fixed up and then decided I needed to get back in the Honda game so I sold the BMW and picked up a 96 civic hatchback and that brings me to the car I own now.
It started off as a stock Civic manual doors single-cam y8 auto transmission so I started to modify it the way I wanted to. I started to realize that I stopped being interested in my other cars because I was doing it wrong by making them fast before I made them eye-catching so I did it backwards this time.
So I started with the body mods first did an ITR front end conversion wings west body kit modified as a widebody custom moulded from the front fenders all the way to the rear bumper then painted it yellow. After that, my kids were the ages of 3 and 7 and they said my car looked like a minion and so after that kind of ran with the theme. I converted my doors to power everything and then it took off from there to the mod list I have today which is.

I am the president of the limitless oregon car club. We are a family of car enthusiasts that started in 2018 with one purpose and that is to show the community that the scene isn't just toxic and we don't show hate on any car and want to bring the scene back to its original roots.
My car is definitely not finished yet and I still have plans for it but, is a car really ever finished there is always something new that comes out that is better then what you just put on.
I hope you all enjoy this and my ride
