"Subtlety" is a word that you won't find in David Huang's vocabulary. As the owner of the headline vehicle for the 2006 Hot Import Nights tour, David is no stranger to building Lexus IS’s, as he built his IS300 to stand out from the crowd. In June of 2000, the IS300 was purchased with the intent of building a capable street car. For the next 18 months, David enjoyed driving his Lexus after performing the usual bolt-on upgrades. In February of 2002, David became a little too comfortable driving the IS300. On his first canyon racing experience, David lost control and put his IS300 on top of a two-foot retaining wall that kept him and his car from going over the cliff. The car hit with such impact that the bumper, bumper support and radiator were jettisoned down the cliff. Rather than do the sane thing and junk the IS300, David decided to put the IS300 under the knife for some major surgery. Passion took a front seat while reason was put in the back. The frame was pulled back to its original dimensions and the process of rebuilding the IS300 was initiated. His IS300 has been revamped several times to become the top show car it is today. The goal was to build an IS300 that would be the envy of all other IS300 owners. Considering the extent of modifications made to the engine, exterior, interior and electronics, it's safe to say that David accomplished his goal.
