This month we have a really cool build that we think you’ll enjoy and it goes by the name SONIC.
When we read the story behind the build we couldn’t help but get a case of nostalgia. The combination of retro and new with this car is something we think you’ll all enjoy!
We love when our fans send us photos of their cars and share the stories behind them. This is why we started these Fan Showcase blogs. If you want your ride featured on our website and social media platforms just like SONIC take a few moments and fill out our application
So without further ado we’ll introduce our newest Fan Showcase.

About the Build:
Hi there my name is Roman and I’m 39 years young. I’ve always had an appreciation of unique looking rides although I’ve only been an active molding enthusiast for a couple years now. My car draws inspiration from my love of video games, and specifically the connections with my car’s model name (Genesis) and the video game “Sonic the Hedgehog” which was a game from the early 90’s for the Sega Genesis. Fun fact: Sonic the Hedgehog and I share the same birthday! (June 23)
