Boxed Lifestyle Officials
Boxed Lifestyle is a crew of a group of guys that have the same passion. They believe in the same 3 words that Boxed Lifestyle is well know for today. Trust, Honesty & Loyalty. Known as the BL Officials these are the guys behind it all.
Never did I imagine that Boxed Lifestyle would have ever taken off like the way it has. I have made so many friends and met so many box owners through out the years of building my xB. These guys below I met through out the years & have gained my full trust. They believe in the vision of what Boxed Lifestyle is. Trust, Loyalty & Honesty are three words that I live by. These guys have shown me time and time again that they also live by these words. This is why they are my BL Officials.
I grew up in NYC and around cars my whole life . My dad is a mechanic so I always was with him during my teenage years learning and working with him. I bought my first car in 1998, it was a 1985 Honda CRX. After that I have had a Laundry list of cars that I mostly modified for performance speed and drag racing. When I moved to Miami in 2008 I was trying to settle down my need for speed and needed a nice family car. Thats where the Odyssey came in but I told my wife I needed to do a few things to it. Five years later it is what you see now. I met the Boxed Lifestyle group in 2013 and I immediately knew these guys were a genuine group of guys. Boxed Lifestyle is not only about a car crew or show cars... its about Family.

2011 Nissan Cube aka Miku
As long I can remember I've been into cars. Since I was a kid in grade school I was always obsessed with them. From drawing made up cars, to designing cars of the future I was always intrigued with the design aspect of it. Which is probably why I own a Cube now, it's just so weird that I love it! As I grew older I started learning how to fix cars with my uncle and dad. Then through my high school years I persued automotive technology as my profession and have been stuck with it since.
I've owned many cars, way too many to list and keep track of. But each one was always unique and made even more so after I've put my hands on it. Especially my Cube who I fondly named Miku. It was built to express my individuality and who I am. But mostly to honor my dad who passed away in April of 2013. The joke between us was that I could never turn a Cube into a show car. Sadly he never got to see what Miku has turned into.
Boxed Lifestyle is a group that is always supportive of unconventional builds, after all, look at what we drive! They've shown me what it's like to be a part of a true car family that's based on honesty, loyalty and trust. I can't think of a better group of people to call family.

2006 Scion xB aka Fresh Toast

Before joining Boxed Lifestyle, I had never been truly a member of any car club. I had hung out with a few different groups but nothing ever really seemed to stick. Then the opportunity to join Boxed Lifestyle came and I jumped at the chance. It’s not everyday you get the opportunity to join the right crew with the right builds at the right time.
My xB is my first build, she has gone through many changes over the years which some of you may know from my years on clubxb.com. I got my xB used back in 2009 and didn’t start modifying until just before the start of Boxed Lifestyle. A couple years back though I caught the JDM addiction with a touch of VIP styling, which has shaped the current look. As for me I like collecting bB bibles, reading S3 Magazine and taking long walks at a car show.

I'm 305 all day!! Born and raised in the county of Dade, being from Miami you're exposed to alot... ALOT!!!!!. Dunk Ryder's to hangouts at the Sunoco on Okee. My obsession with cars is one of the few constants in my life. From learning to drive stick in a turbo MR2 to Maxima's all the way to DTS's and everything in between. I've had quite a few interesting cars from all over the car spectrum. I love all types and styles of cars, with a soft spot for Towncars and Deville's.
I was introduced to Boxed Lifestyle in 2014 and from there it has grown into a family and brotherhood with the guys above and below. While I'm most likely the "firecracker" of the group, I have learned a lot from these guys and am thankful I found this group of car enthusiasts who share a common bond for Trust, Loyalty & Honesty.

2007 Mazda 5 aka 5hiro
Legit VIP founder

Originally from Boston MA, I moved to Orlando in February of 2013 looking to escape the frigid weather. A new tropical feel to start a new life with my wife and kids. A little over a year later I needed to upgrade my lil protege5 wagon to something more spacious, yet not a full size van. That's where the mazda5 came into play. Like all my previous vehicles I needed to add that special touch and began the mods. I wanted to go with the VIP feel since the Grand Touring had a leather brown interior. I knew it was the right way to go & this led the way to LegitVIP.
As I started attending shows I met some Boxed Lifestyle members & they showed me love from the beginning. One thing lead to another and the start of a new chapter of family and friends began. 2+ years and its been the greatest of times show after show meeting new people. May the adventures continue and the growth of this family grow strong! #boxedlifestyle
