Josh Harada purchased a 2004 Lexus IS300 at 17 with his life savings.
He considered a classic 240Z but opted for the IS300 due to restoration costs.
He became interested in JDM cars and found inspiration in a Z-car build featuring a 2JZ swap with individual throttle bodies.
He saved up to have a custom ITB kit built by Daddy Motor Works in Japan.
He searched for and purchased rare OEM-optional Altezza parts from Yahoo Japan auctions.
He upgraded the suspension with 326Power coilovers, adjustable control arms, tie rods, and polyurethane bushings.
He even refurbished the subframe to give the car a brand new underpinning.
Josh's dedication to his passion for cars is evident in his creation of a one-of-a-kind JDM masterpiece.
His IS300 represents the true spirit of JDM culture.
It is a testament to the endless possibilities of automotive customization.
