Helen is one of those pretty umbrella girls we have seen dressed up in Hankook gear during Formula D events. Finding out she was local to us, we knew it was a must that we got her in for a shoot. The vehicle is Ryne Cunningham’s of Cunningham Motorsports personal C6 Z06 Corvette with one lopey cam.

Let’s talk about…Helen FancikName: Helen Fancik
Hometown: Vista, CA
Hair/Eye Color: blonde/Blue
Occupation: Monster Energy Drink, Hankook Tires
Something you didn’t know about Helen: I live in North County San Diego, and was raised in Coronado and Europe. I am Hungarian and Slovakian, and I speak both languages. I have to say I grew up in a very strict old school style, and I would definitley describe myself as more of a good girl than a bad girl! I’m not easily pressured into things I don’t want to do, but I am very open minded.
Career Aspiration: I want to get into fine arts. I want to design, or basically anything creative.
Likes: I love to go to car shows, the beach, hot tub, watch movies, playing with my dog, drawing and painting.
Things I can’t live without: I love my crazy parents, my pomeranian Ollie bear, my pitbull Greddy boy, cars, Hello Kitty, skateboarding, relaxing by the beach and tanning by the pool. I collect watches and sunglasses.
Current Car: I have a Subaru WRX wagon, with a JDM sti swap, engine rebuilt to a 2.6 liter, Rally Blue. I think its pretty legit, it was on the cover of import tuner back in its day. I am proud to say I can drive stick pretty decently for a girl.
Dream Car: White Mercedes SLK 65
What kind of guy she likes: I like dirty boys! Longer hair, tattoos, tall and tan. Not too muscular, just a little bit. They need to have great style, common interests, and a chill personality.
Something you didn’t know about Ryne’s Z06 Corvette: Ryne bought his Z06 Corvette in 2008 to build a shop car that could be drag raced, road raced, and still a daily driver. This was also intended as a display to the capability of the Z06 through minor modifications.
