If you want to check out the Tjin Edition/UTI Ford Focus up close and you live in the so cal area; the car is parked outside of the Cerritos Ford dealership!
Apologies for being dark for the last few days but I was hard at work trying to grab some content for MotorworldHype and a few other clients. Now that I am settled in I want to kick things off with a few fresh shots of Gene Tjin’s 2010 Camaro which won the Facebook fan’s choice award. It looks even better in person than it did in the rendering. I’ll try to update this post later on with some engine bay pics and interior shots.
Earlier today my buddy Neil “The Ninja” Tjin sent me the full rendering of his 2011 Ford Mustang GT show car which will make its debut at SEMA. On the outside it will be flexing a custom body kit designed by Neil himself and produced by Extreme Dimensions, a custom DuPont paint job, and Forgestar C5 wheels at the corners. It will also have a full digital Air Lift system, Baer brakes, and a Vortech supercharger. If you’re going to the SEMA show this year Neil’s Mustang will be in the Air Lift booth (#23533) on the show floor. I can’t wait to see it in person!
The Tjin family is producing another hot Camaro for SEMA this year only this time instead of Neil “The Ninja” at the helm its his brother Gene “Don’t Call Me Napolean Dynamite” Tjin at the helm. Despite my close ties with the family I couldn’t get too many details about what else they have in store for Gene’s Camaro but I would assume some type of boost will be on hand. If you’re feeling the exterior of this car as much as I am you can head over to the Chevy SEMA facebook page and vote for this car to win best Camaro. If you click the thumbnail below you can get a wallpaper sized version of the pic so you can rep Gene’s Camaro on your desktop.
Here on the west coast we’ll be looking forward to the Toyota Grand Prix Of Long Beach this weekend. However down south our good friend Neil Tjin will be kicking off his Tjin Edition RoadShow tour in Memphis Tennessee. His famous Tjin Edition 2010 Camaro will be on hand as well as various innovative displays specifically designed to give show goers a hands on experience with the parts and products used on Neil’s creations. Should be a fun time for all! If you’re in the south or the east coast I highly suggest you head out to the tour’s next stop. Scroll below for a full press release and the first half of the tour schedule.

Neil Tjin’s 2010 Chevy Camaro was easily among the top 5 overall best in the show. In fact General Motors gave this car the award for “best GM” on the show floor and that is saying A LOT because there were some top notch GM’s there. Neil’s style has really come along way from his S14 from way back when to now although some things remain the same in his creation, such as the pin striping and the use of 3-piece forged wheels (iForged on the Camaro). It also seems like he hasn’t gotten tired of the color green yet. I’d bet many people winced when he told them he was going to build a green Camaro but looking at the finished product I don’t think he could have chosen a better color. Nice work Mr. Tjin!
