Reader Ride: Rob's Stylish Sleeper

E-mail Print PDF
 
 
We recently had the pleasure of catching up with Rob Hale a THMotorsports customer from the Garden State who once had a dream of creating a clean looking ride that was both reliable, fun to drive, and would turn heads. His dream is now a reality thanks to his creative vision, wicked wrenching skills, and a healthy selection of parts from Thmotorsports.com. Rob's most recent project is also his daily driver, a 2003 Acura TL, which just so happens to have a little over 206K miles on its odometer -- Proving that your car doesn't have to be a trailer queen to be stylin'. Take a moment and read through our interview with Rob to see what has led build an Acura. Better known as the Acura Vigor in Japan where they first hit the streets back in 1996, the Acura TL was the best-selling model for the company for many, many years before being passed up in units sold by the MDX in 2007. So, take a moment to see what led Rob to begin moding his TL, what he has in mind for future mods (did somone just price a supercharger?)...and what issues he has faced over the past couple of years while building his dream.

We recently had the pleasure of catching up with Carlos Ruiz, a THMotorsports customer from the Bronx who can't resist a good deal when he finds 'em...and just kept coming back to Thmotorsports.com for more as he built his Infiniti G35! Take a moment and read through our interview with Carlos to see what has kept him wrenching and tuning with his dad after all these years. The third generation Infiniti G was unveiled in early 2001 and hit American roads a year later.  Continuing the Infiniti tradition of offering rear-wheel drive cars, the sporty G35 utilized the same powerplant as the contemporary Nissan Z model. So, take a moment to see what led Carlos to begin moding his G35, what he has in store for future mods...and what issues he has faced building his dream car in the Big Apple!

We recently had the pleasure of catching up with Aaron Prahlow, a THMotorsports customer who came for the affordable prices and great customer reviews...and just kept coming back for more as he built out his screamin' Toyota Celica! Read through our interview with Aaron to see what keeps him tuning…and how a popular video game whet his appetite not only for tuning...but for the classic lines of the 90's Celicas. Toyota's Celica has been around since the late '70 and were hot sellers until the ended their run in 2006. While the Celica name was derived from the Latin word coelica which means "heavenly," when you look over Aaron's car it's easy to see the "celestial" influence in his radical choices in parts and mods. So, take a moment to see what led him to this particular model of Celica, what he has in store for future mods...and what his car can do when given the chance to run wild on the back roads where he lives!

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!
