Jon Mateo: 2008 Honda Civic Si

Jon Mateo picked up his 2008 Honda Civic Si knowing that he was going to start changing things up the moment it reached his driveway, and he certainly lived up to that idea. Having a good amount of experience working on Hondas (this is his 5th one), Mateo went into this build with a vision, and has since executed that vision and started looking for more. It's never done after all!
