With only a couple weeks until SEMA 2016 we have a Fan Showcase that you can’t miss. Whether you see his ride online or on the show floor you’ll instantly recognize Manny’s Chrysler 300c.
The custom Chrysler 300 is a real head turner, with an impressive list of modifications and showroom performances we couldn’t help ourselves from staring. In fact, we liked Manny’s ride so much that we decided to sponsor him and showcase him at our booth this year for SEMA.
We won’t give away all the details of the blog, but we can tell you that MOPAR fans and people who love their mods will really have a smile on their face while reading this entry.
So without keeping you waiting any longer, here’s our EZ Lip October 2016 Fan Showcase!

About the Build:
My name is Manny Diaz I live in the city of Arleta in the San Fernando Valley in California.
My whole life I always had a passion for working on modifying vehicles and making them to my taste, but when I started this quest with my 300c I would of never thought how far I would have come with it. I’ve been so thankful for all the great opportunities that have presented themselves in front of me. The 300c started off as any other car and as my daily and no set goal for it; but 7 years later it’s a unique car that many have come to like and look up to. This project truly was a family project from my dad helping give input on how to setup my air setup, to my mom helping make my full interior and trunk as well.
The vehicle has been to SEMA back in 2014 and this year once again. I have won numerous trophies from so many shows from Extreme AutoFest, Forbidden Fantasy Show, MOPARS in May, Relaxing in SOCAL, and many other shows. The car has been showcased (booth) in many shows as my sponsors ask for it. It has also been in DUB magazine as first vehicle to have one of one headlights. I was first to have Second gen lights on a first gen 300c. My 300c’s engine is a 5.7L HEMI motor with a 5 speed auto tranny, color is PS2 Bright Silver but I’ve wrapped the vehicle in a flat black from roof, half the sides, door trim, hood and trunk and also a thin flat red pinstripe line running around whole vehicle.
I have made my 300c as unique as possible so wherever I go it gets attention and stands out from the crowd.
