Vinny’s Widebody Integra GSR-t



Written By: Ben Duen

Why did the chicken cross the road? What came first, the chicken or the egg? Is KFC chicken really made from mutated alien looking chicken that they breed themselves? How can Wendy’s sell their exquisite chicken nuggets for just 99 cents and still make a profit? Who has one of the tightest integras on the east coast? Regarding the chicken questions, I don’t know much about chickens so you are on your own with the first four questions (try using search engines if you are really curious), but I do have an answer for you on that last one. To say Vinny’s 2000 widebody Integra GS-R turbo is at the top of it’s game would be an understatement. He has been part of the Jade Family for a long time and from what he’s accomplished so far, we can’t quite call him a rookie anymore With several “Best Crew” awards that he’s had a hand in helping us win and several scenes in the backdrop of “The Fast and Furious 2”, he deserves a free order of Wendy’s 99 cents chicken nuggets. Any ordinary person would be thrilled at these accomplishments but Vinny was looking for something more, something crazy, something that will force car show competitors to bypass the car show and just pay for spectator tickets instead. Well he has definitely done something special with this world class widebody Integra. We definitely don’t see anything that looks like a mutated chicken here.
