Reader Ride: 1BADMKIII

E-mail Print PDF
 
 
We recently had the pleasure of catching up with Cecilio Casablanca, a THMotorsports customer from the Garden State! Cecilio's a tuner with a soft spot in his heart for Toyota Supras (lots of 'em!) as you will see from his BADMKIII 1988 Toyota Supra. Read through our interview with Cecilio to see what keeps him tuning…and what led him to build his 4th (yes, you read that right!) Supra. Toyota's Supra has been around since the late '70 and were hot sellers until 2002. So, take a moment to see what led him to this particular MKIII, what he has in store for future mods...and what his car can do!

We recently caught up with Junior Swift, a THMotorsports customer from the larger-than-life state of Texas! Junior's a tuner with a flair for the dramatic as you will see from his highly modified 1996 Volkswagen Jetta show car. Read through our interview with Junior to see what keeps him tuning…and what led him to create a car that is literally covered from top-to-tires with amazing details, including an engraved under carriage. Volkswagen Jettas are known as small, but powerfully popular cars that first hit the road back in 1979. Since that time more than 14 million Jettas have been sold worldwide making it Volkswagen's top selling model. Junior has been racking up wins on the show sircut for several years. However, his vision for his Jetta is still taking shape and he has warned us that this build is an ongoing project that will continue evolving for many years to come. So, take a moment to see what led him to this car...and what his car can do! 
 

Reader Ride: Extreme EVO

We recently had the opportunity to catch up with Andy Smedegard, a THMotorsports customer from The Badger State. Andy's a technology specialist by day who spends his nights and weekends tuning his 2006 Mitsubishi Evolution IX and tearing up the tracks in and around Wisconsin. Read through our interview with Andy to see what keeps him tuning…and what led him to acquire a race-ready ride that put him on the fast-track to winning. Mitsubishi Evo's are known as small, but powerful, all-wheel drive contenders that are currently on their 10th generation since rolling off the production line for the Japanese markets back in 1992. Although, it wasn't until 2003 that the Evo broke into the American compact market, they have quickly built a strong and loyal following. As you will see, Andy's decision to purchase a race-ready car that he could tweak to his own liking has proven to be a wise move as he has been rapidly making a name for himself on tracks across the upper mid-west. So take a moment to see what led him to this car...and what his car can do! 
 

Reader Ride: Arturo's Sleeper

We recently had the opportunity to catch up with Arturo Hernandez Jr., a THMotorsports customer from The Sunshine State who has a deep resprect for Hondas, Civics to be more specific, to learn a little about what keeps him tuning…and what led him to mod his classic sport compact into a formidable street sleeper. Civics, which are currently on their 9th generation since hitting the U.S. market back in 1984, are among the most stolen cars in America. Which makes a whole lot of sense for guys like Arturo who are Hell bent on driving 'em like they stole them. As you will see, while Arturo isn't willing to give away all of his tuning secrets, he's more than happy to show folks what his car can do! 
 

Reader Ride: '73 Camaro Pro

We recently had the opportunity to catch up with Tony Kirouac, a THMotorsports customer who has a deep resprect for classic American iron to learn a little about what keeps him tuning…and what led him to mod and race his highly customized 1973 Chevy Camaro. Known as the "Super Hugger," these second-generation Camaros were longer, lower, and wider than the earlier models. As you will see, Tony's unique, and race-focused plans for his car have led to an impressive and well-modded car that is sure to remind his fellow tuners that old school iron isn't just for old timers!
