Jamie Stancil: 1989 Honda Prelude Si-4WS

Jamie Stancil first got into cars and turning wrenches at a very younger age. "I always had a knack for being able to take stuff apart and put it back together," mentions Stancil, "and I had my own go-kart that I would drive as hard as I could, break it then fix it." At the age of 9 he managed to learn how to drive manual cars by himself or with the help of his dad.

Stancil has had multiple builds in the past, from Acura Integra, Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX, old school Jeeps and S10 mini trucks. His current build is a 1989 Honda Prelude that he bought in 2011 for $500, and he's done everything to restore it and get it to the level it's currently at.

"My friends and family, and with their support, are my inspiration to keep building my car."
