Like a mysterious black night blanketing an azure sea of rolling silver tipped waves, mystified gazers were lured in for closer assessment. Seriously. The 2005 Nissan 2.5L Altima that Tracee Hiler created for the 2010 SEMA show was like poetry for your eyes.
Hiler's Nissan Altima has 22 inch Helos and with the fully adjustable suspension it's able to lay the cross member to the ground.

For those familiar with Hiler's vehicular exploits this latest creation comes as no surprise. While most toddlers are still trying to get the hang of their toddler-walkers, Hiler was already attempting routine maintenance on mom and pop's car.

"I have been into cars since before I could walk," said Hiler. "My parents told me the story that when I was about six months old, I was in my little walker with a wrench in my hand, and I was trying to put it on the lug-nuts of our car. It probably doesn't help when you have a father and grandfather that totally passionate about cars too - so it was completely expected that I would be as well.
The custom paint work is stunning from any angle.

Regarding the work done to the 2005 Nissan Altima SEMA show car Hiler says that it rides on a fully adjustable suspension (air-bags), the cross member is capable of laying on the ground, while the car rolls on four 22 inch Helos.

"I have full custom paint work done, rear suicide doors, full black leather and black suede interior, full custom audio/video system, which includes Fusion components and two 12 inch Subwoofers," adds Hiler.
The car garners attention wherever it parks.

"Also, there's an Alpine DVD/CD deck and a 10.5" monitor in the dash, cross drilled slotted and vented rotors, upper and lower billet grilles from TRex Grilles, and a full cold-air intake system from K&N Engineering."

Hiler says K&N has been the go-to choice for as far back as can be remembered. "Being into the car scene, K&N is everywhere, and that's because it's such a great product. I have had many K&N cold-air intakes on other vehicles over the years. I love the intake system on my Nissan, not only does it sound and look good, its added horsepower."

Over the years Hiler has managed to remain automotively well rounded by refusing to be limited by any one particular style.

"I can appreciate all sorts of cars from the hotrod scene, mini truck scene, import scene, and low-rider scene," explained Hiler. "I have friends that are into each one of those categories. I do have a full-time job that I enjoy, but aside from that, my major hobby is cars."

"I live in Arizona and I would have to say that it is a perfect state to live in for car shows, along with all other things that involve being outdoors. I would like to thank Steven Burkett with Show Cars Inc., if it wasn't for him I wouldn't have gotten in touch with the majority of my current sponsors, such as K&N, which in return made it possible for me to bring my car to SEMA. I had a blast and hope to go to many more in the future!"
