Michael Fredrick: 2005 Mitsubishi Evolution

Michael Fredrick has always had a soft spot for the the Mitsubishi Evolution. Fredrick went through substance abuse treatment, and when he got out he decided that the 2005 Mitsubishi Evolution 8 was going to be his tool to help stay clean. Within a few months, the Evo 8 has been modified from stock to what it is now. Fredrick is far from complete; plans for a wide body kit, chassis-mount wing, new wheels and fuel modifications are in the near future.
