Rami Qasem’s S2000 has had its ups and but the results were worth the

Rami Qasem of Baton LA, was chillin’ at home one day when a rolled up to his house in an S2000 he had purchased and told him excitedly he had to take the car for a spin. Initially, didn’t share his friend’s and looked down at the Honda skeptically. Why?

Well, is 6 feet tall and 250 pounds, so easy to understand why this or even this type of hadn’t crossed his mind as one to own and fix up. he owned a ’98 Mazda 626 and a of ’94 Honda Civic entirely different types of when compared to the snug, convertible S2000. Nonetheless, he his friend’s offer and got in the vehicle and it. That one drive changed

The S2000 didn’t seem at all for me but once I sat in it, it hugged me, and I drove it and immediately fell in love. He right then and there he had to have one and immediately began In just two short weeks found an S2000 for a great and although the car had its fair share of decided to make the purchase.

Now that the car was in his possession, Rami begin to modify the vehicle to his The thing was, he wasn’t 100 sure what route to with it. That was, he laid eyes on one S2000 in My true inspiration came an S2000 in Georgia most as Leng’s AP2.

The clean slammed stance, aggressively Work Meister wheels, and Racing rear diffuser all a role in making that car out to Rami, but one aspect of the build resonated with him. The of it is what really took me, and I was quickly steered toward the route. I know, I know, of you are probably rolling your right now and I get it, believe me. That style of modifying cars for everyone, that’s for sure.

And Rami knows that. The is, he likes it and it’s his car, so it doesn’t matter whether you or I for it. Although not for everybody, it’s I like and enjoy.

I love the and workmanship you have to put into it as far as that fitment and look you want, Rami says. I we can all respect that perspective.

decided in the very beginning he was going to build the car as a head-turning driver. All I was trying to achieve was a clean daily driver-not a car or a track car, just a that I could enjoy with the top down, going my business. First was to find a set of that would achieve the of fitment that Rami had so attracted to.

The first set that he went were limited edition black Enkei NT03+M from Touge Factory 18×9.5 +27 all the way around. Trying to fit was a pain especially because no one in we knew was into the fitment So Rami turned to the web. reading various forums, he with a set of 225/40-18 Falken tires to mount on the wheels.

The problem was finding a shop in the willing to stretch and mount of that size onto his Rami ended up being to Sumo Dinh of SuWorks who solved that problem and easily. Putting the wheels on the Rami then realized they poked out from the of the car way too much, so he set out to get an alignment to get the wheels and to fit the body of the car.

Once again, finding a willing to do that type of proved to be an obstacle; a majority of facilities refuse to do this of work. But Rami was referred to Jackson, who took care of the and made the necessary negative settings. With these resources at his disposal, Rami comfortable switching to different setups, which he eventually putting his car on an awesome set of SSR Professor wheels.

The car was now ready to roll and exactly what Rami attending various meets and and just cruising the car around. But one in particular stood out, and for brought about the next of his build.

It was the summer of 2010, and Rami had to Nashville for the ever-popular Import event. It didn’t take before the vehicles at the event had an on him. This event me realize I needed to step my up tremendously. Everything out there was so nicely and I was able to see many that intrigued me. Rami that as soon as he got home modifications would occur.

If the and the cars within weren’t to get him going, the 10-hour commute he and his friends had to get back to their from the event would be. a friend of his leading the caravan ran and kicked up all kinds of debris, in Rami’s OEM AP2 front bumper and lip completely ripped off. It a big deal to Rami, though.

Since I already had my mind set on to a whole new level this was more of an excuse, I guess you say, he says.

Clearly his fair share of problems the course of the build, Rami has to keep his positive, optimistic All I know is that this car has through a bunch of ups and downs and has me along with it.

I can tell you we have had way more ups though, and I enjoyed everything that we been through thus With that attitude, sure that no matter happens, Rami will to modify cars and be a part of the multifaceted import tuner
