Here at StanceNation we are firm believers of individuality and doing whatever it is that makes you happy. If others are impressed by the way you do things, great, if not, who freaking cares?! When it comes to cars there are no words to express that more clearly. Beatrice Wong of San Jose, California has built her Zenki S14 to meet her wants and needs from the super aggressive Vertex aero down to the Hello Kitty air freshener on the mirror and it is our honor to finally share her stunning build with all of our awesome fan & followers around the world.

The first thing I noticed when I saw this car is that it is literally tucking wheel in the back! While that says a lot for a static car, the wheel specs will say even more! Beatrice’s s14 is hunkered down on an incredibly aggressive set of Work Meister S1R in 18×9.5 -25 F and 19×11.5 -0 R with a set of Dunlop Direzza DZ101 225/40/18 F and 275/30/19 R stretched around them. The double staggered Works with outrageous offsets are torqued to the hubs with a set of Project Kics Leggdura lug nuts that add just a tad of color flow to bring your eyes up to the aggressive body lines.
Being sponsored by Vertex USA would certainly have some benefits, Beatrice’s S14 has a lot of added body parts to give it such an aggressive look and stance. They flow together so nicely that many people would probably not expect what they saw when this car was stock with it’s extremely simple lines. Vertex USA hooked it up with a plethora of goodies that include; Vertex Ridge Front bumper, rear bumper, canards, wide body front fenders, and wide body rear quarter panels, again all in the Vertex Ridge design. Not to leave out the Vertex corner lights, Vertex markers, D-Max hood, and Ganador blue tint aero mirrors. These body mods flow perfectly with the factory lines to make the car appear ready to eat you alive! Just shows you that girls can build them just like us guys can.
Beatrice is also sponsored by Speed Element and Meguiar’s, the company that makes all those excellent car care supplies that we all know and love. With that we know this car will always be clean. The custom paint on the car has a story in itself that adds even more character and life to the car. The color is completely custom made for her, it is called Purple RAINbow made with House of Kolor paints. Beatrice says that the hardest part of the build was stripping out the car for paint and choosing a color. Since she painted the engine bay as well, they had to remove the motor and decided to tuck a lot of things to really clean up the bay. She said she knew she wanted a purple color but not exactly what kind, in fact she didn’t really have an image of the car in her head she just had to wait for it to be completed.
There’s always a story behind a car like this, in Beatrice’s case hers began when she met her husband. He was into cars and had an S13 that he was building and she really fell in love with the car, the build and the scene. She then decided she wanted one of her own and picked up the S14 you see before you around February of 2011. Her goal was to start a sort of “His and Hers” kind of relationship between the two builds. They eventually ended up doing a His/Hers photoshoot to be included in their wedding photos.
The interior of Beatrice’s 240 has been modified just like the exterior of the car and it’s exactly how she wanted it to be. The interior is nothing but quality, and not to mention the condition that it’s in for being almost 20 years old! This thing is LOADED with goodies, Bride Gias II for both driver and passenger seats, Bride seat protectors, Bride seat rails on both sides, Takata harness, NRG steering hub and quick release, Vertex 10 star steering wheel, Vertex shift knob, Vertex shift boot, Vertex Ebrake boot, Vertex custom LHD embroidered floor mats, Yashio factory drift knob, custom splattered gauge cluster, custom bejeweled panels, and pink suede door and rear panels.
While many people would like to disagree and even “hate” on Beatrice’s way of building her car, the simple response to that is that she built the car for herself and not others. Performance parts have been put on hold for now, but this thing is still sporting an APEXi N1 Evolution Exhaust, Koyo radiator, Mishimoto radiator hoses, Blox radiator overflow tank, Blox radiator fans, and a Blox intake to keep the power flowing smoothly and efficiently.
It is fitted with some aesthetic goodies as well including an HKS oil cap, HKS radiator cap, Hellatone horns, Dress up bolts kit in purple, custom painted valve cover and a custom splattered and tucked engine bay. Many may not know the car used to be an automatic and in doing the swap Beatrice added a nice assortment of parts to ensure the car performs to it’s fullest, such as Nismo motor and transmission mounts, a one piece aluminum driveshaft, ACT clutch and Fidanza flywheel with a clutch line tuck.
As mentioned earlier, Beatrice built this car EXACTLY how she wanted to and we have nothing but respect for that. This car is an amazing looking car with nothing but quality added to an already solid chassis. It’s a damn good looking car. Obviously we aren’t the only ones who think this; Beatrice’s S14 has won a ton of awards at several events! Faanadix – Best Nissan, Blox Open House – Best Nissan, Hot Import Nights – Best Female Ride, 2012 Season Awards, Faanadix – Best Female Ride, Hot Import Nights San Mateo – Hottest Female Ride, Hot Import Nights San Mateo – 5th place Mild 2-Door, Hot Summer Dayz – Hottest Car and these are just from the 2013 show season. As always there is much more to come just like all other cars and we can’t wait to see what’s next!
