Twenty-seven-year-old Shalmeen Yusuff is passionate about cars. Here is his story.

SUN INTERVIEW

Briefly about yourself?

I work as a Fedex dealer in a respected firm, am 27-years-old and have a lot of passion for cars.

What’s your ride?

1992 AE101 Toyota Corolla (JDM SPEC) – registration DO361.

Engine?

4EFHE with few mods under the hood soon for a turbo engine upgrade.

What’s so special about your vehicle?

It’s just my passion and pride

What’s the maximum speed you have done with your vehicle (on the track I hope)?

Never participated at the tracks, but I have surely tested full potential of my vehicle and driven it to its limit.

How much would you have spent on upgrading the vehicle?

Above $15,000 since I had it for the past six years including the purchase of the vehicle.

 

Why so much passion for your vehicle?

It just excites me and it’s just the way it is.

Your first vehicle?

This is my first vehicle.

Dream vehicle?

I always wanted to own a 93 Toyota Supra 2JZGTE.

Who taught you to drive?

I just learnt it myself.

Prefer manual or automatic?

Most memorable road trip?

It’s always fun to make road trips especially when a long one.

Favourite movie vehicle scene?

Fast and Furious 2, opening scene.

What do you listen to in your vehicle?

Mostly RNB, few raps and also selected Hindi bits at times.

What annoys you the most about other drivers?

Lack of patience, honking, passing comments

One road code rule you would want to change?

None

Traffic in Suva, what’s your take on it?

Early morning and afternoon traffic are the worst and motorists have to be more sensible while driving to avoid these traffic in the first place.

ADDITIONALLY:

I would like to thank all my family and friends including those who are dearest to me and the almighty Allah for all the support given to me always.

Also big thanks to Xtreme Paint Works and Bodykits, Mr Razin and Victor for the fabulous new JDM theme paint job and GMH Autos Fiji for maintaining my car mechanically.
