Nax’s (@VIPCE0) Nissan Quest on Vossen VFS-1’s is truly a one of a kind build that takes patience, expertise and true vision to make happen. Not to mention some JDM connections! Nax is one of the big names behind the renowned “FortuneMinds” crew in South Florida and has made great waves with his complete VIP LS 430 build that has won countless awards at various shows and events. Nax was looking for his next project and decided to join the “VanKulture” Movement with a significant twist; he purchased a Nissan Quest van and immediately began modifying it himself.

That is correct, this bagged, upgraded interior with all the bells and whistles was built partially by Nax over nearly two years. Not afraid to tackle the biggest of tasks, his first modification was the JDM ELGRAND E52 conversion front end that consists of the following; Fenders, Bumper, Headlights, Front Lip, Fog Lights and custom one off grill by his friends at ProFab.  Well technically his first modification was the van, since he bought the JDM front end before he bought his Quest!

Nax then attacked the rear end which features a custom Lexus LS 460 mash-up with a custom dual exhaust. Huge D2 racing big brakes front and rear were also added in yellow to give the black van some pop and of course additional braking power. Talk about giving your ride some original flavor and style!

The interior was also completely upgraded as well featuring a full custom black and suede interior including the headliner and carpet which was done by E3 Customs. Nax also replaced the stock steering wheel with one from a 2013 Nissan Murano which he also added custom suede too. Black leather isn’t an option with the Quest so this is another original touch done by Nax and we feel it is the way to go over the stock colors.

Finishing things off, the car is bagged on Airtekk custom bags/struts with Viair compressors and gauges with Air Runner manual switches. Also note the custom front splitter, side skirts, and Elgrand door sills and window visors from Japan. There is simply no other Nissan Quest in the world quite like this one and he needed the perfect wheel compliment for his new daily. Enter the Vossen VFS-1.

Measuring 20×10.5 front and rear in our matte graphite finish, the VFS-1 with its open 10 spoke design allows those big D2 brakes to be showcased while added an elegant flair to the black body of this van. Aired out, this vehicle looks mesmerizing in pictures, video and in person. Nax reps everywhere he goes and it was pretty cool to see him winning at shows like Wekfest Miami in his custom van on Vossen’s.

To be completely honest it was an absolute pleasure to work with Nax to feature his Nissan Quest/ElGrand Conversion. He’s always in good spirits and can be seen at multiple meets in South Florida hanging with his crew and making moves.
