Ever since Oscar Flores of San Diego can remember, he’s had a passion for cars. He can remember going to car shows when he was in the fourth grade with his friend’s older brother. “I loved the idea of one day having my own sick ride with a beautiful paintjob,” says Oscar. He purchased the Altima in 2008 and wasted no time in adding a sound system and some wheels. “I loved the way it looked and sounded.”
“I slowly started to get into the car club scene when I found out that one of my good friends brother was a member of Nokturnal.” In a little over a years time, Oscar had fully transformed his ride from a nice cruiser to a showstopper. “It’s a great feeling when you see and hear people talking about how they like your car or asking me how much the paint cost. I’d like to thank Candy’s Auto Body for giving me one of the wettest paintjobs in San Diego.”
