Gunner Kelley - 2003 Infiniti G35 Coupe


Our latest Gripset Collab, S/O to Evan Verschoore, lending us with his talent all the way from Alabama. When asked to collab with us and shoot Gunner's car he was more then glad and helpful.
Mining for Gold is much like the perfect car build. It may just take traveling through hell and  high water to get there, but the reward is worth the wait. That gleam in your eye, that feeling of despair replaced by triumph as all your dreams have materialized. The defining moments in the details. Stance, Style, Simplicity, with a turbo just makes that dream as fast as it is sexy.  As Gunner graces this weeks second feature, with his audacious G35 we hope it inspires you, and what dream may ensue!


"My love for G35s began long ago, actually when I was 16 with my first car which was a 92' Acura Integra. I remember my friend Andrew owning A G35 Coupe around the same time. I fell in love with these cars immediately. The body lines and overall design is just perfect, to me, they truly are a work of art. Four years later and about ten cars later I finally had my chance to own one. My particular car popped up for sell in Murfreesboro, TN about 2 hours from me. A day later I set up to meet with the previous owner and check the car out. The car wasn’t perfect by any means but it was in good enough shape for me to jump at the deal. I instantly starting dropping money on parts and things I wanted to change like Suspension, wheels, re-tuning, interior mods, etc. I’m currently about a year and a half into the build and I'm enjoying it as much as day one. Owning a car that truly makes you happy is a great feeling, and I love every second of it!"

"The car will be getting an Upgraded Turbo from Garrett, Injectors, new clutch and re-tune very soon. You might see some Work Equips on it in the near future as well. Things are always changing, and my plans grow everyday.

I have to thank a few people for helping me get the car to the point its at today, Evan Verschoore for all his amazing photography work with my car. Many of my friends for the longs night spent working on suspension, engine bay work, etc. Brett Christensen, Michael Brown, Ben Garrett, and Andrew Cleveland. Z1 Motorsports for their awesome support and tuning on my car. Jon Parham as always is a tuning genius. My bro Cody Dusseau for the crazy tire stretching. Johnny Moreno for building the sick wheels for me. And last but not least Grip-Set for the feature, you guys are awesome!
