The Story

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 the full glass sunroof, navigation, heated seats, rear vision camera, and bluetooth were all options that gave me what I wanted from a new car. Unique design, and a fun to drive car with a pretty cool interior had me sold. In 2021 I've attended events and shows in eight different states driving round trip. In 2022 you will yet again find me all over the place enjoying cars, friends, and the family I have found along the way.

My Inspiration for this build came from everywhere really. I took my favorite color blue (Illusion Blueberry) and paired it with a beautiful OEM Elite White Pearl. Ideas were created using design ques from the lowrider scene, classic cars, hot rods, custom built award winning show cars and more. Attention to detail is always important.

This car has changed my life in many ways. It has given me many reasons to stay focused, work hard, and explore my passion for cars. I've personally invested my time, countless hours to work on the whole build from designing custom parts, to fabricating them, and installing them. I have future plans to do a full motor as well as upgrade from the stock turbo. Currently the car is a full bolt on build 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 future 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 show. recently rolled 45K miles. She's garage kept and doesn't see snow ever. In the past I Autocrossed a few times a year with the SCCA, as well as some other short track days for fun. Wow, what a blast it is to drive for such a small car. Thanks for checking out my build and reading some of my story. Comments or Questions? Leave them below.
