Bad weather can be a nuisance to owners of a fully modified ride. Many, in fact, balk at the idea of allowing even a single drop of rain to fall on their pristine canvases.
Garrett Perreira has been a low-rider lover for quite some time, even before high school. Never one to show interest in racing or muscle cars, he’s always preferred the rides that go low and slow. His first car, in fact, was a cut-coil ’84 Buick Regal that he slowly transformed into a proper low-slung machine.
As far back as he can remember, Richard Carvalho has been fabricating automobiles. Growing up, in fact, he would spend hours helping his dad (whose 1932 Roadster was featured in StreetPulse four years ago) on cars while learning everything he could about how they’re put together.
Tevin Agena is a professional gamer who has racked up $10,000 in prize money in his off time. The 24-year-old also bought his first ride and since then, he’s become the proud owner of 36 other rides. Among his fleet are Hondas (both N/A and turbo’d), SRT-4s, GTis, turbo’d 240SXs and a Celica GT. Not bad at all.
Garage-built cars. That’s a sentiment that many automotive enthusiasts can identify with, including Kerfoot Garage owner Ethan Kerfoot. “Everything on my car has been done out of my garage,” he said.
Darrell Delmundo spent a majority of his formative years around old muscle cars in his hometown of Waianae. In high school, he’d pass the weekends with an uncle at the track and with his cousins, who owned just about every type of Honda model. So it seems appropriate to say that he was raised with a love for the modded.
The Shelby GT350 stretches back some 50 years — to a time when Shelby American produced a model that was intended to hit the ground running. Since then, the brand has remained focused on being more than your average Mustang.
Tattoo Rich is an automotive enthusiast who has spent the majority of his time behind the wheel of high-horsepower American muscle cars. In addition to driving Corvettes and Hellcats, he also dabbled in exotics such as the Lotus Evora and Ferrari 360 Spider F1.
The first generation Honda S2000 is known for being a snappy ride — as in, it will snap you right around if you aren’t careful. Dylan Watanabe learned this first hand when his AP1 spun out of control in rainy weather.
The Tokyo Metropolitan Police, known to be one of the largest police forces in the world, are infamous for sporting a string of ubiquitous two-toned, black-and-white vehicles. They range from the pedestrian Toyota Crowns and white shirobai motorcycles to the tiny kei cars suitable for the tight streets of Japan’s capital.
