Different Strokes | Jeff Smith’s Kia Forte 5

Hey guys Keison back again with another fan “Get Featured!” submission. This one comes by way of Columbus Georgia, Jeff Smith, a 29 year old born and raised in Georgia. He spent most of his life restoring, rebuilding, and modifying cars. Jeff got his first motorcycle when he was just 8 and have had several since then. He got his first car at 12, an ’81 Z28 Camaro as a project car for himself and his dad.


“I always tell people there is a very fine line between different and tacky.” – Jeff Smith


“On this car I’ve really been influenced by the American stance scene and just tried to do my best with that. I think it turned out decent…”  -Jeff Smith



Jeff quotes “The less you do, the more you do” – Paul Rudd





 ”If you would’ve told me a few years ago I’d own a Kia I would’ve told you youre crazy.”  - Jeff SmithDSC_0152

“I love this car, drives good, used to ride great…lol, and is super easy to work on. Kia really did an outstanding job designing it.” – Jeff SmithDSC_0137

Jeff’s Shoutouts:

“First and foremost thank God for everything he has done in my life, I’d also like to thank my wife, Casey, who puts up with me and my hobbies. I’d like to give a huge thank you to Angel Lopez of A.L. Photography ( https://www.facebook.com/pages/AL-Photography/584114761598827 ) who has on more than one occasion taken sick pics of my ride. I’d also like to apologize to the guy in the Chevy truck on the way to the photo shoot… my car tore two reflectors off of the road while changing lanes and he took both of them to the grill… sorry bro.”
