What Is Perfection?

What comes to your mind when you think of the word “perfect”? For some, it’s what many consider to be the “American Dream.” You know, a house with a loving wife, a couple of kids, and a dog. However, it’s a little different for me. When I hear the word “perfect,” the first thing that pops into my mind is Drew Evans’ one-off Infiniti G37.

Fun fact: Drew originally bought this car for his wife in late 2012, but after upgrading her to a new QX60 (his family is clearly JDM for life), he decided to turn the car into the neck-breaker it has become today. Influenced by Christopher Taylor’s “Layla” G37 build years ago, Drew has taken his G, which is now widely known as “DrewsG37” to a completely new level. The Stillen supercharged Liberty Walk wide-bodied G proves that bags aren’t just for groceries with impressive all wheel power to match the eye candy.

When I first became a SoFresh ambassador, I remember seeing Drew’s car around the Internet. And seeing the progression from where it was just a year ago, to what it has become today, shows me just how passionate Drew is about his car. When he realized that the G was no longer daily-driveable, he bought a Nissan Juke Nismo to kick around in, which he has also tinkered with. From there, his passion and obsession with the G took to a whole new level. To prepare for this season, the G was equipped with a custom fabricated Liberty Walk kit done by APAC (the only sedan in the world with one), a mind blowing custom candy red paint job from BASF, and an interior which is out of this world (literally). His interior is full charcoal alcantara, custom LED lighting, matching red embroidery, and paint matching the body with a starry night headliner. Exact Art Fabrications worked the magic on this piece of the build. Drew ran fiber optics through the headliner to give the car the illusion of a clear night sky. This carries over into the trunk setup which holds his Airrex management and ear rattling Alpine and Hifonics sound system.

This build is certainly unique. From top to bottom, inside and out, there is so much detail in this build. The slew of awards that Drew has won at shows is certainly well deserved.
