Ohio Technical College to debut a modified 2010 Suzuki Grand Vitara at SEMA

Aug. 4, 2011

Aug. 4, 2011 – Students at Ohio Technical College (OTC) are customizing a 2010 Suzuki Grand Vitara with a nautical inspired theme, reflecting Suzuki’s automotive and marine divisions. The custom SUV will debut in the OTC booth #38111 at the 2011 SEMA Show Nov. 1-4 in Las Vegas, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

With aftermarket accessories provided by Stylin’ Trucks and ARB, modifications include: custom paint; oversized tires and wheels; suspension lift; bull bar bumper; ocean line horn; neon license plate frame; bar side steps; hood scoop; shaved door handle kit and other stylings.

Students will also be cutting off the top of the Grand Vitara and securing two Suzuki outboard boat motors on the back of the vehicle along with other fabricated modifications to make it resemble a boat.

“After a successful project build with the 1957 Chevy Bel Air for industry veteran Vic Edelbrock, we were very excited to start this project vehicle with Suzuki,” said Tom King, director of enrollment management for OTC. “This project will provide OTC students in our Restoration and our Custom Paint and Graphics Programs with another unique learning opportunity in vehicle modification.”

Companies interested in donating items for vehicle restoration/modification projects pleas contact Tim Cole at Ohio Technical College booth at 266.881.1700 or at [email protected].
