Jeff Maldonado wears a few different hats throughout the work week. If he is not at work at Toyota central in down town LA he is managing his clothing line, marketing company or helping out with charity events. When SEMA season comes around, Jeff switches gears again to custom builder. While he has worked on more than a few vehicles, present at SEMA, his Scion tC is the face of his company 742. His Scion has been to SEMA for the last 3 years with a different look and theme every time. Since 2006, Jeff has worked on perfecting his showmanship on vehicles to best represent the companies he show cases.

Scion's have always been a car that owners strive to customize. Jeff went above and beyond this craze by totally hooking up this cars interior. With its fully wrapped, peanut butter colored suede and leather interior, this car stands out on the inside. As you move to the outside of the vehicle you get a complementary two tone paint job by basf custom on a v fiber complete wide body. The hood and the trunk of this vehicle go almost perfectly with the interior and is split up with the vivid color of the body.

The cool thing about Jeff's vehicle, is while it's a show vehicle at SEMA and spends most of the year covered up, you might see it gliding the streets of LA on the weekends. Under the hood of this vehicle you might find brands like Optima, K&N, jet performance and engine modifications from Mishimoto. Since the beginning of his tuning and custom building career there have been a few brands that Jeff has stuck with for performance and K&N is one of those brands. Since the start of his career Jeff has received over 100 awards, been featured in 3 magazines and been presented on TV and webcasts.

Besides having fun and making tricked out custom cars, Jeff hopes to build his marketing company through his work and create a good platform to showcase manufacturers and vendors. With very unique color choices and his own personal style, Jeff plans to stick out from all the other custom builds out there.
