Ryan's Fresh New Ride

Ryan's wish to have a car makeover

“ My wish was outstanding... ”


- Ryan

While battling cancer, Ryan found his escape in the comfort of a garage. He loves using tools to fix what is broken, and he found solace working on his 2004 car. Naturally, his one true wish was for it to be customized by professionals that could do the work and provide all the upgrades that he dreamed of having. Make-A-Wish Southern Florida partnered up with Superior Auto Design in Pompano Beach to transform his ride. Workers restored faded paint and fixed dings and scratches on his 2004 Lexus, and added special touches that Ryan never imagined could actually have in his own car. The makeover featured intricate body work, completely new seats, fresh wheels/rims, a new hood, shiny lights and a custom paint wrap. It took months of planning and weeks of hard work, but the smile on Ryan’s face when his car makeover was unveiled was priceless. “My wish was outstanding. Just outstanding, to be honest. Like I said, they went above and beyond with this car. That’s all I can think of,” Ryan said. “I’m more than happy with how it came out… I can’t wait to give back in the future.”
