Andrew J. "99' Infinity Q45"
This week we shine the light on a man of humility; a humongous heart and his epically clean Infiniti Q45. The trials of this build were few and far apart. The passion and compassion to execute this car let alone complete it within a short time frame, unscaved, is a merit on its own...I wish I had space to share all the details, but I must captivate you without boring you. EXCLUSIVELY RESERVED for GRIPSET, we were blessed with the task of bringing you it's 1ST FEATURE!! Knowing the owner, and calling him friend is truly a privilege, being the "chosen one" to debut his car virally, here on Gripset is a high honor. Much Love & Respect 'Drew! Big shout out to James Soriano aka FYI James for making this feature possible. He met up with Drew & his Q hours before "Auto Fashion, San Diego," caravan roll-out to do the photoshoot and video on SHORT notice.
The Q45 is a modern classic. Traditionally made famous by the Lyrics of Hip-Hop Genius Nasir Jones. The melody to "If I ruled the world and everything in it, sky's the limit, I'd push the Q45 Infinite," once bumped through tweeters and discmans across the globe back in 96'......Heck, A lot of you wont even know what the heavens I'm talking about, you weren't even born yet! Closely associated with the ever so flamboyant styling of VIP cars Q45's / Y33s have become notorious for their styling cues: Massive body dimensions, lavish interiors, and strikingly beautiful exteriors make them a top contender for that top VIP spot. In elegant white and chrome peep 'Drews white knight as this weeks feature.
I'll keep it short and sweet. I can't say there is a specific motivating force on this build. Just that I was inspired with my new found love of the VIP car scene and tried my best interpreting it into this creation you see before you.
