Juan Guzman of Corona, California, is a man who likes to walk to the beat of a different drummer and he’s made it a point to do just that. Juan’s “Navidition” is part Ford Expedition, part Lincoln Navigator and part import, utilizing the best of each to come up with a unique blend of LUV (lowrider utility vehicle). Juan is a member of 935 Draggers and blended his Honda experience into this vehicle.
For instance, Juan looked around and noticed that no one else had a set of Lambo door hinges made for the Navi. The fact that the doors are considerably heavier than those on a Honda or Acura made it necessary to have a custom set of hinges built for the Navidition. This one item stepped up Juan’s vehicle a couple of notches above the rest and with the addition of 12 TVs and a custom stitched Louis Vuitton interior, Navidition is riding high on top of the LUV world.

Paint & Body Mods:
After hittin’ up a Lincoln Navigator for its front end, the body received its share of shaving, as in the door handles and emblems. Meanwhile, a roll pan replaced the rear bumper and molded fender flares were done by Javier from Pacific Auto in Chula Vista. Armando from Down South Paint and Audio in Chula Vista painted the Expo in factory Cadillac Escalade burgundy. Dan from GT Factory in Miramar, California, made a custom set of Lambo door hinges for the Expedition’s front doors.
