Brandon Weaver 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo MR PASMAG TBGLIVE lead

For Brandon, the Evo has long been a dream. It was always his first choice in video games and, even after owning two other Mitsubishis, the Evo was always on his mind. To hear Brandon describe it, the 2013 Evo drew him in. He had gone to the dealer for service on his 2009 Ralliart and the Evo, complete with its new shade of blue, called to him – he knew then that he wasn’t leaving without it.

The Evo’s pull only grew from there. Before purchasing it, Brandon had never significantly modified a car. In fact, when he bought it he promised himself he wasn’t going to modify it – that resolution only lasted about three months. The build process started with little things and grew from there – Brandon likes to think the car itself pulled him into building.

This build, which has been achieved through careful saving and hands-on hard work, has opened Brandon’s eyes to the intricacies of car modification. He wants his Evo to stand apart from others, with a look that is unique. He has certainly achieved his dream!
