"Nearly pronounced dead after a barbaric wall-slamming incident at Fontana's drag strip, this R33 Skyline GT-R has been resurrected to realize its full potential. The GT-R, a top-of-the-line V-Spec forged into existence by Nissan and Nismo in 1996, is one of the prized possessions of Alex Shen, chief proprietor of SP Engineering. Like many success stories, Alex started from his home garage with a lot of skill and passion and one influential customer, Ken Henderson. The weapon of choice was Toyota's 2JZ-GTE Supra. As his customer base expanded, Alex moved from his garage to a shop in 1997 and then leap-frogged to his current digs in City of Industry, Calif., in 2000."
