Gabe Gonzalez: 2014 Scion tC

This 2014 Scion tC 10 Series is a reflection of Gabe Gonzalez. Gonzalez works for the USCG and he always looks for ways to better himself and those around him. Gonzalez modified the tC with daily driving in mind. The Tein SS coilovers enable Gonzalez to lower the tC for everyday road conditions, while the wheel and tire specs stay within that ability as well. Gonzalez continues to work on his vehicle day-to-day, which he says mixes his love to learn and ability to relax. He says the build has been "a roller coaster of emotions," but when push comes to shove, he would do it all over again.
