NEW INSTAFAME ELITE ENTRY – Jay Villanueva
805’s Finest/ Team LeGaZy
Vehicle Year, Make, Model
2004 Nissan 350Z
I am 26 years old, born in Philippines, but raised most of my life in the Oxnard, California. Having served 6 years in the U.S Army, which helped me become a better leader/founder of a local car club: 805’s Finest. I totally believe that having a car team is not all about who has the fastest and the nicest car and going car shows, but it’s about being together as a family and supporting each other’s build.
How did you get started in the import scene?
Ever since I bought my dream car in 2011, I told myself I wanted to build my car and be part of import scene. Even though my car isn’t fully built yet. However, since then I’ve been part of the import scene by going to car meets and car show in different locations.
Why did you choose this car?
Choosing a car is difficult, but when I was in high school my dream car was a 350z. However, when I was time to pick out a car to buy I had to choose from an S2000 or a 350z. So the obvious pick was to buy my dream car. The biggest reason why I really was passionate about the 350z was because of the different generation of Z’s and also from watching Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift made me want to have a drift car someday.
What makes your build unique?
What makes my car unique from other 350z, is I’ve used my Army uniform for my interior. I know everyone goes out and buy Recaro, Sparco, and Bride seats, but wanted to be more original buy using my actual military uniform that’s been through the hard times in life.
Bio Of Car Crew
Team805sFinest: As the founder, I wanted to start a local car team from Ventura County area. Our team is looking to put a change to the community by doing charity events such as feeding the homeless, toy drives for children, and etc (anything to help the community). With 25 members on the team we look to build an empire of different variety of cars, but of course it takes time to build a family.
