Extreme Car Customisation: Vehicles Turned Into Works Of Art

COMM: The Nokturnal Car Club is one of the biggest customised vehicle clubs in the world
with chapters across America, Europe and Asia. 00:23
TONY: You say this is a hobby but it sure don’t feel like no hobby I mean you put in
more hours than you do at work. Y’know we love it but it feels like a full time job. 00:30
COMM: The members spend hundreds of thousands of pounds and countless hours turning their
regular cars into moving, roaring works of art. 00:38
HECTOR: Here you have a 1998 Chevy two-door Tahoe. 00:42
HECTOR: We converted the whole front end as you can see, fenders, we added oversized wheels,
28-inch fully engraved and painted. We added a nice mural on top of the hood. Our candy
paint job, purple paint job and then some pin striping. 01:02
HECTOR: Money wise it’s very hard to pinpoint it but a rough estimate would probably be
ninety thousand to a hundred. I know it sounds like a lot to a lot of people but also it’s
a build that has taken maybe four to four plus years. 01:19
TONY: First I do it for y’know, the girls, why lie? But eventually you do it so long
that’s not why you’re building it, you do it for the builds and the attention the builds
get. Everybody’s reaction is something different. 01:33
TONY: When they first see out rides on the street or anywhere where we’re setting them
up, first thing that comes out of people’s mouths is y’know wow. Second thing is why
would you do that to a new car? Our club is we try to go after the newest stuff and pretty
much mess it up. 01:47
CHARLES: The car is great, it’s fantastic. There’s no part of this car that’s not customised. 01:58
CHARLES: The paint is extraordinary, definitely has show quality. This vehicle is definitely
above the top, and unique. 02:08
TONY: We’ve run out of ideas on cars so why not build a golf cart? 02:12
TONY: We’ve put some 14 inch rims on the golf cart and LEDs all the way along the bottom.
HALO lights it’s got TV’s everywhere. We’ve got an iPad that goes on the dash. XBOX 360
in the back. and actually this damn golf cart weighs probably a much as a car. 02:25
TONY: I’m sitting on a good 12 batteries right now. You spend at least $5,000 just on these
batteries. 02:31
COMM: Despite the incredible amount of time and money involved in being a member of the
club, it’s grown exponentially since it’s inception in 2001. 02:41
HECTOR: We started in Montebello, California. We’ve expanded to 28 chapters including Texas,
Florida uh, St. Louis, Chicago, New York, Arizona, Nevada, Utah and now presently in
Japan as well. 02:56
TONY: Nokturnal as a club, I mean now we’re more like family. I’ve missed to many birthday
parties, parties and we’ve gone everywhere with these guys, with our members y’know sometimes
they do more for you than your own family does. 03:11
HECTOR: Everybody thinks I’m crazy and my family thinks I waste too much money on it.
But my perks are different, my rewards are different. I grew up reading lowrider magazine,
and it always inspired to make me want to come out in the magazine but successfully
we won and I’m a three time champ when it comes to lowrider. 03:31
TONY: You say I’m obsessed with all these vehicles but I don’t call it obsessed, it’s
just know what you love doing.
