All the way from Tampa, FL, we bring you a double-feature! Alex Laverde is the proud owner of this 2001 Acura Integra and 2004 Honda Ruckus.

Alex is the original owner of the Integra and has operated on this beauty several times. Installing 3 different nitrous kits, 2 turbo manifolds, and a handful of intakes and exhausts, his work has been beautifully executed. Alex took his inspiration for the Integra and invested in building the Ruckus identically over a course of 4 months. His favorite sites for parts are Honda-Tech.com Market Place and Totalruckus.com Grand Bazaar.

From the beginning, Alex faced obstacles – even while purchasing his Integra. When arriving to the dealership, it seemed like he had arrived at the only dealership where a group of salesmen weren’t waiting for him. Finally, a sales representative saw the look on Alex’s face when he was viewing the Integra and sealed the deal.

Alex plans to freshen up the interior of his Integra and install a brake kit, bigger cams, and shoot for 500hp.

Alex’s dream car is a 1963 Chevy Impala with an Ls1 motor. He was always around low riders growing up, but never had the opportunity to own and build his own. Alex hopes that his dreams will become reality and a 1963 Impala will be his next build.
