Albany- Tyson Daron and his team took 2nd place in the Nopi National Car show in Atlanta. He says the movie the Fast and Furious gave him the inspiration to fix up his 1994 Honda Accord.

The entire front end of the car is fiberglass. It has custom leather interior and even custom music.

"When we found it took me about 10 times to call my mom because I kept dialing the wrong number, but it was probably the happiest moment of my life. It really was. I was very excited.

Daron says he's already working transforming a Ford Mustang into a show car and plans to enter the Accord in other shows.
