Hey there everyone,
My name is AriAnna or most of you may know me as @2JZGRL.
I grew up in Chesterfield, MO at Gateway Motorsports Raceway and started driving at the age of 8. My father had a TVR Tuscan (which was my first inline 6 and manual car I learned to drive on), a Pantera along with other fun cars. I was 13 years old when I took my first pass down the track and was hooked..literally and figuratively. Throughout the years I participated in drag racing, then auto cross and finally drifting. At the age of 21 I made the journey to the West Coast to pursue the automotive world. From 2013-2017 I partially owned/managed a performance shop, The Get Nuts Lab. As well as managing the Forrest Wang Formula Drift team for 4 years. I have since managed another Formula Drift team, SCCA team, pursued the exotic world as a specialist for Ferrari/Maserati, and am now entering into the world of commercial and residential real estate and investing. Being quite the entrepreneur, I have a marketing and consulting agency for small businesses such as mine.
In my free time I enjoy business, traveling, eating, and playing with cars. I recently took a month long trip to Europe with Adventure Drives. I raced on the Nürburgring, drove the Autobahn, enjoyed Monaco, Switzerland, Italy, France, Germany, Prague, and London. When I returned to the states I flew straight to Car Week, and participated in the Daily Driven Exotics 'Members Only Rally" where we raced up the coastline to Monterey and Carmel of the Sea. The Quail was absolutely incredible to experience as it showcased over $1 Billion in crazy exotic cars. Otherwise you can usually find me at my desk, eating sushi, steak & lobster, or spontaneously traveling around the world. :) I’ve been called ambitious and driven (get it) a few times ;)
Here’s my lineup below..
1. Black on black 5 speed Lexus IS300 (my first born)
2. S14.5 240sx with an SR20 swap that I drift for fun (street car)
4. TVR Tuscan
7. Daily driver IS250 (changes all the time), and a few other toys.
How Garage Girls came to be:
I had been searching for years for jewelry & accessories for women. I found close to nothing when it came to rings, necklaces, and things like that. So I decide to take it upon myself to make my own line of jewelry & accessories for women and men! I'm proud to say this business (that started out as a personal hobby) has grown into something I never thought possible. I strive to provide the best quality from my manufacturers and set a fair price point as well. Most of my products are hand made by me. I enjoy promoting a healthy, supporting, and uplifting role as a woman in the motorsports community. Also, I thought it was unfair that guys had all the cool stuff! So here it is, enjoy everyone! Thank you so much for supporting my small business. In doing so, you're supporting a dream.
