I don’t know if I should call Jermaine’s ride “Lava” cause it looks like it oozed out of a Hawaiian volcano where he currently resides. Maybe I should call it “Fiya” since that would be the first word out of people’s mouths in Jersey, where he was born and raised. Either way, check out these pics of one of the finest examples of VIP in the states.

Out in the east coast, the VIP scene has almost been non-existent from 05-09. There were only a few guys doing it during that time period and some of them left the game completely. It almost felt like there was no hope in it ever catching on in this side of the country. One of the first guys to do it out here was Mark with his silver Y34. The car was decked out in Junction Produce everything when people still thought that was the name of a fruit and vegetable store. The car went through many make overs during that time period but it is no longer has his main focus since he also has a Lexus 3GS. It continues to hold its own since there are very little Y34’s out there let alone fully modified versions of the first generation M45.
When ever we have a major car meet or BBQ, he is there with one of his VIP cars showing support. Out of respect for the scene and hopes of it strengthening in our region, we extended an invite to our seasoned vet and he accepted. Welcome aboard.
Here is Mark’s Y34 M45.
