Road to SEMA Gets to Know Clarence Chan

As a copilot on the Road to SEMA, we wanted to get to know Clarence a little better, so we asked him some questions to find out what a road trip would be like with this drifting enthusiast.

What was your favorite road trip and why?

Driving down the coast on Highway 1 in California. Between the stunning views, the breeze from the ocean and the hum of an engine I brought to life, there truly isn't a more Zen feeling than that.

Who would you choose as your road trip co-pilot, alive or dead, to join you on the ultimate road trip and why?

Sun Tzu, the ancient Chinese general, writer, and philosopher. His amazing knowledge and philosophy is inspiring and is easily adaptable to anything you do in life.

What is your favorite vehicle/bike you have owned or built?

Porsche 993 turbo

What is the one vehicle/bike you wish you owned? Or what was one you owned and foolishly sold it?

Viper 97 GTS

What fueled your passion and got you into this industry?

I love working with my hands and building amazing driveable works of art.  My passion for different types of vehicles gives me an open slate to do whatever I want and know that something awesome is going to come out in the end.

Do you have anything coming up between now & SEMA that you would like us to feature?

Right now all I have coming up is SEMA, but we are bringing a badass Overlander Ford F150 that is going to be a MUST SEE for truck enthusiasts.

Tell us about your experience with CTEK product(s).

The CTEK DC/DC is an amazingly versatile product that is very easy to install and makes for the perfect addition to our Overlander build allowing more freedom Off-Road.
