Rogelio Diaz: 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution

Rogelio Diaz was a tech for almost six year, so the car scene had become a part of his daily life between work and his life in his own garage. After building a 1997 Eclipse, he was eventually able to buy his true dream car - the 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. From 2013 to now, the once stock Evo was transformed inside and out into a purpose-built 700+ horsepower weapon, daily driven on the weekends.
