A car is more than a means of transportation. It represents freedom. Freedom to travel, to go where you want, to do what you want. It’s a freedom of expression. No one can and should, tell you how to modify your car. It’s your possession so you should do with it how you please. The best part of owning a vehicle and modifying them is becoming a part of the automotive culture. It’s here where we meet some of our best friends. It’s here where we learn from one another, and push each other towards building unique and well put together cars. Danny’s Genesis is one of those cars.

danny-red-genesis-durtyI met Danny through this culture I’m talking about. It’s full of people like Danny living the automotive lifestyle. Now I met Danny when I was fairly new to this lifestyle. I’ve always loved cars growing up but didn’t really get into modifying them until my 4th car. It was at a local Subaru meet that I first met Danny.

Everyone generally shares a common interest and loves to ask questions about each other’s projects. So meeting new people is as easy as saying “love your Genesis man”.

In fact if you saw our booth at Imporfest this year you may have noticed these Vertini Drift wheels on Rob’s blue Genny. Danny let Rob borrow them to look all snazzy like for the biggest baddest car show in Canada. He’s a good pal that way, sharing his wheels with Rob and sharing a slice of pizza with me at CSCS.

They were a little too wide for Rob’s Bag over coil set up as they rubbed through the front bags on the way to Ifest. Ouch. Other than that large obstacle they looked great for the day, thanks Danny!

danny-red-genesis-sideThe first time I laid eyes on Danny’s Genny I knew it was a beast. Its ride height is just perfect thanks to HSD Coilovers which Danny puts to the test quite often. There’s been some rough areas on the highways in the GTA and I’ve witnessed this Genesis go through a lot unscathed.

danny-red-genesis-wheelsKudos to Danny for keeping the car so clean yet so functional. I mean what is the point of owning a sick car if you don’t beat the piss out of it once and awhile? What’s the point of a turbo if you don’t shift late enough to feel it push you back in your seat?

danny-red-genesis-staredownYou can make a car look cool, but if it doesn’t get driven then it’s just a pretty paperweight. (if your driveway was made of paper). So let this Genesis be an inspiration to you and go out there and modify your car how you want. It’s a passion every car enthusiasts shares and it’s something you can put a little bit of yourself into. Happy Modding!
