This week’s ’07 Scion TC is just oh, so fresh! Simply clean and well built, Gregg Whyte from Sunrise, FL took four years to finally get the look he was going for. “My Scion TC started out pretty basic. I just had lowering springs and some old skill racing Hart wheels. It wasn’t until I saw a group of Scions at a local meet before I got the bug for more parts.” As many of us can agree, finding someone to do honest work isn’t always easy. Whyte quotes, “A major milestone with my car was trying to find a great tuner whom I could trust because I have blown up before on a bad tune. Its hard to find someone that will treat your car as if it’s theirs.”

Figuring out from where to start first, Whyte says, “My first major upgrade was a turbo kit because the car was pretty slow stock. After that I got new wheels, then lowered it and kept going until I found a look I really loved.” Knowing exactly what he wanted, Whyte continued pursuing the build with plenty of inspiration behind it. “The thing about Scion is that it is a a young brand, so a lot of kids will get them and rice them out. I’m more into the simple, OEM look. I have seen a bunch of TC’s around the USA and we all kind of swap ideas and help each other out.”  Being 100% satisfied with the way the car looks today, Whyte has a few future mods, like wrapping the backseats to match the front Bride seats, a bigger turbo with more boost, wider wheels, and a rear lip. Nicely done, Gregg. (:
