2014 Hyundai Veloster
Elite White Pearl
1.6L Turbo
Matteson, IL


Purchased brand new in fall of 2013 and I've been Modifying it since week one. Her name is Veronica Vee, a 2014 Hyundai Veloster Turbo with 6sp Manual.

Premium options like full glass sunroof, navigation, heated seats, rear vision camera, bluetooth were all original stock options that gave me what I wanted from a new car. Although I do not daily drive the it she gets a workout. In 2021 I've been to 8 different states. including a 2,000 mile trip to Oklahoma for Import Face Off Tulsa.

My Inspiration for this build came from everywhere using ideas from the lowrider scene, classic cars, hot rods, custom fully built show cars and more. This car has changed my life and given me many reasons to stay focused and work hard. I have personally invested the work on the whole build from designing custom parts to actually fabricating them and installing them. Future plans to do the motor and upgrade from the stock turbo. Otherwise the car is a full bolt on with a modest staged tune from Blood Type Racing inc. Although its only a 1.6L she does make about 255Whp and is really a joy to drive. My goal is a comfortable 350Whp once I finish the rest of my upgrades. For now she's 100% reliable and I could literally drive it across the country without a worry. I daily it back and forth to work a few days a week otherwise all the miles are from traveling to car shows. She's garage kept and doesn't see snow. I've Autocrossed a few times as well as a few short track days for fun and wow what a blast it is to drive. Thanks for checking out my build and feel free to follow the IG @Stevethewoodypeterson
