We chose this Evo as ride of the week because its build style screams early 2000’s tuner culture. With the throwback vinyl graphics and manufacturer names running down the side skirt, this car evokes a 2 Fast 2 Furious vibe—a feeling that continues down through its overwhelming list of aftermarket upgrades. This car means business and reminds us of a golden age in tuner culture. For that it definitely deserves a like and follow, so make sure you show Rob and his Evo some love via the link below.

This garage contains two favorites of ours, the YJ Jeep Wrangler and the FC Mazda RX7. Robert has both the trail and the street covered with his collection, which is why we chose to give him garage of the week. He has big plans for his RX7 so make sure to give him a follow for updates on the progress of the build. As always don’t forget to drop him a like while you’re there.

Don’t let the vibrant Hemi orange of this SRT8 fool you, this car is an absolute monster. Under the hood, you’ll find a fully built 405 stroker with a Whipple supercharger. Its aftermarket upgrades more than double the stock wheel horsepower from the high 300s to 814hp to the rear wheels. The increase propels this SRT8 into Hellcat and even Demon territory. You can view the full build list for this beast by visiting Jason’s profile via the link below. Don’t forget to drop him a like and follow while you’re there!
