Team R-Rydes member, and vehicle owner and designer Michael Ramos, has put together a completely custom 2005 Infiniti G35 sedan that pulls out all the stops. Based out of Sunnyvale, California, Ramos and his G35 have been seen last year at shows such as "Hot Import Nights: San Mateo, Pomona and Los Angeles," "Bloxx Open House Auto Gallery in Huntington Beach" and at the "G35 GTG Tanabe."

When asked what the inspiration was for first becoming involved in customizing cars Ramos replied, "I used to play a lot of video games while I was a kid. One of the first games that I got with my PS2 was Gran Tourismo," said Ramos. "Seeing how you can increase power on a car as well as paint etc. I started to want to do it in the real world."

The Infinity G35 is known worldwide as a sleek, stylish and very customizable car, and Ramos has done just that with his daily driver. "I wanted a car that was stylish, grown, sexy, and had enough power for day to day needs. I chose a sedan as I needed the 4 doors," said Ramos, "one thing about this car [was] I saw that the design would be timeless, and I still feel it is."

Ramos has delivered on a unique and timeless look for both the interior and exterior of the vehicle without neglecting performance. With such a powerful motor, airflow and filtration are crucial to ensuring optimum performance, which is why Ramos uses an AEM Dryflow air filter for his turbo. "I chose AEM because they are proven to be number one in the industry, and I can trust their power, reliability, [and] customer service."
