After that, we discuss road trips, Autopia2099, and the upcoming LeMons race at Buttonwillow. Finally, we get to the questions. If you’d prefer the audio-only […]

    In 2013, Vaydor Bodykits began selling heavily customized pieces to turn 3rd-generation Infiniti G35 coupes into something entirely different. There are two versions of the kit.
