Alex Ajodhi: 1993 Nissan Skyline GT-R

Ever since Alex Ajodhi was 4 years old, modified cars have been his absolute biggest passion, hobby and motivation in life. His father and older brothers were all huge car enthusiasts and had multiple builds that he was lucky enough to be apart of. Throughout Ajodhi's childhood, he attended countless car shows, meets, cruises, tuning shops, dyno days etc. which taught him more than he can put into words as well as creating a massive network within the entire east coast car scene.

Fast forward to his 16 year-old-self, Alex Ajodhi knew he wanted a nice car to modify. "I got my first job about a week later," remembers Ajodhi, "and within a year I bought my first car, a bone-stock 2010 Honda Civic Si 4 door and I couldn't wait to turn it into a show car." By 18 years old, the car had nearly $20k into the build, and he had multiple magazine features and sponsors. However, Ajodhi has always had a soft spot for right-hand drive tuner cars and JDM cars as a whole.

"As hard as it was, I sold my pride and joy at 20 years old in order to pursue my lifelong dream of owning a Nissan Skyline GT-R," mentions Ajodhi. "I'm so proud to announce that i worked hard enough to buy an insanely clean example of a R32 Nissan GT-R by 21 years old." He imported the vehicle through Garage Defend in Japan in January of 2018 and had the vehicle delivered by May 2018. It has now been a little over a year of owning his dream car and he's never been happier!

Ajodhi decided to modify the Skyline. "Well, it's a Nissan Skyline GT-R! "The main reason I bought it was to turn it into a street legal race car, and I absolutely love the way it's coming together." His father, brothers and several of his closest car friends have all been a huge part of the build, and he's extremely proud of what the car has already turned into compared to stock.

The Japanese car culture has always had his attention and has been a huge inspiration for his build. "In my opinion, some of the coolest and most unique builds in the world have came from Japan, and I have learned a lot from watching how they carefully and precisely build show cars and track cars," he mentions. "I'm in love with my car's current setup, however it's just the beginning," Ajodhi states. He has huge plans for the GT-R.

Ajodhi's new daily-driver, which is his most recent pickup, is one of his favorites. "It's a 1991 Toyota Soarer (JZZ30) imported from Japan as well." He bought the car roughly two months ago from a friend and couldn't possibly be happier to now own 2 right-hand drive vehicles, and more importantly 2 of his favorite motors ever made (RB26DETT & a 1JZ-GTE).

Ajodhi recently created his own YouTube channel to document his builds and their progress. "I never thought I'd see myself make it this far in the car scene but it's really only the beginning."

"I can't wait to see where this journey takes me in life!"
