Seremban: Deep interest in car modification and want to highlight the differences has made the owners of the 2003-2008 edition Proton Saga LMST car willing to spend a lot for their satisfaction.
Muhammad Osman, 36, said, so far he has spent more than RM40,000 to modify the car when he started the activity in 2014.
He said, most specially, the activities were done just side by side and filled free time on weekends and the holidays also raised his spirits when the car won many awards in several competitions and fair car shows or local auto shows before.
“I started to modify and make up this car in 2014, but at that time just changed certain parts in stages like the rim part by changing the sport rim more attractive and stylish.
“After that, I upgraded the audio, radio system and followed by changing the paint on the body parts of the car.
“I chose the theme of Joker and Harley Quinn on the body of the car to give a difference and so far, my car is the only one that uses its own theme in the state,” he said when met by Harian Metro, today.
Muhammad, who lives in Sikamat and works at a private hospital in Senawang, said the theme was chosen spontaneously due to his interest in the Joker character style in the famous film.
However, he said, the modifications made did not cause the original body structure of the vehicle to change.
“The shape of the car body remains the same as the original to comply with the law, instead modifications only in certain parts such as the interior including the seat and audio system, sound with the installation of more sophisticated equipment and looks ‘rare’.
“Previously, I participated in many auto shows not only in Negeri Sembilan but also outside, including in Kuala Lumpur, Melaka, Johor Bahru, Shah Alam and several other places.
“No less than 40 trophies were received in the period of about six years of involvement in the activity from various categories participated,” he said who is still single.
According to him, even though the gift received was not commensurate with the cost, he was still satisfied.
He said, the goal of participating in the auto show is not just to win, but to have fun meeting many friends from various races and ages while exchanging experiences.
“I have won several championships and it is an interesting memory and what is more important, we can create good relationships in the community, especially among car enthusiasts.
“It may be that a few individuals describe the work of modifying and repairing a car to the tune of tens of thousands is futile, but it is up to oneself and one’s interests cannot be restrained.
“I use my own money instead of borrowing or asking with other people or family members,” he said.
Muhammad said, his car is often an attraction for people to take pictures and so on, including for the purpose of celebrating celebrations such as, engagement ceremonies, weddings and official ceremonies of government and private agencies before.
However, he said, following the spread of the Covid-19 epidemic and the enforcement of the Movement Control Order (PKP), the activity continued to decrease, even the auto show program could not be held.
