There is always a point in time where the path to greatness makes itself evident. Christian Islas 2007 Scion tC just might be at that point where it all begins. Islas' interest for cars became clear quite some time ago. His very first project car was displayed at SEMA 2011 in Las Vegas.

He mentioned, "I've always been a big fan of modified cars and my Dad taught me most of what i know." Most can relate to the days grabbing wrenches for your dad while he lay underneath the old project car in the garage.

The tC is a pretty cool looking daily driver thanks to all the performance parts. Islas received his tC as a graduation gift and says, "I've always wanted to make my car stand out from the rest." In between work and school, Islas has certainly transformed this very popular vehicle into something interesting to look at and drive.

His 2007 Scion tC has quite a few modifications like:

We were curious as to how Islas felt about K&N products and this was his response, "I heard from many people that K&N was the best product to have in your car, so naturally i wanted what was best for performance and overall look." K&N offers an intake system as well as an air and oil filter for the 2007 Scion tC.

Beyond the performance side of things the car requires many hours of detailing and up keep getting ready for car shows. This is the first year Islas has attended the SEMA show and he was quite impressed with the whole set up. His goal for the rest year is to add some real power to his show car. He mentioned, "My goals for the year are to hopefully turbocharge or supercharge my car, and maybe even chop the top." This may not be the last time you see Christian Islas so keep an eye for updates made to Islas tC further down the line.
