Rome Wasn’t Built in a Day

20 Sep

personalities that they bring to the table when executing the build on a project.  I can honestly say one of the nicest guys I’ve met in the 17 years I’ve been involved in this scene is Cheston Chiu.  While we’ve never formally met in person, we’ve spent countless hours back and forth over the phone and IM, pm’s on the message boards, etc.  He’s one of those guys who is no stranger to the game, which makes him easy to work with.  He also is smart enough to know when to ask questions, resourceful enough to know how to discover the right answers.   We’ve featured his car on our site before, and we’re proud to have been involved.  What a pleasant surprise to find that not only was Cheston’s car entered into the Sport Compact Car Ultimate Street Car Challenge, but that he would be one of the featured cover cars!  Congratulations are definitely in order to Cheston – a class act all the way, and someone we’re proud to be involved with.  The car you see is the result of many long hours, many paychecks, and alot of love, dedication, blood sweat and tears.

My favorite thing about the car is it’s ever evolving.  We’ve know him since 2003.  Since that time, we’ve seen alot of Z owners come and go.  Cheston has stuck through it, and the net result is a very well executed, thoughtfully prepared machine that is balanced – something I can appreciate since it’s how I like to approach projects as well.

Congrats one again Cheston and to all parties involved in the project!
