Ivan Diaz: 2008 Honda Accord

Ivan Diaz purchased a used 2008 Honda Accord V6 in 2015 with no intentions of modifying it. "I wanted a reliable manual-transmission daily driver," mentions Diaz. Shortly after purchasing the car Diaz ordered coilovers because he wanted a lower profile/stance to the car. "I fell in love with the look," states Diaz, "and decided I needed new wheels." It has been a snowball-effect ever since.

 



His last build was in high school (2004). "I put together a JDM b18c EF hatch," remembers Diaz.

Diaz is a proud member of Team NvUS (Chicago Chapter) and an active car enthusiast. He enjoys working on his vehicle; most of the modifications to the Accord have been done by him or with the help of his team members.

"My favorite part of the car scene is most definitely being able to spend time and creating memories with my NvUS Family."
