Chantal Ballo 2011 Chevrolet Cruze PASMAG TBGLIVE 1

Chantal Ballo purchased the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze LS in her effort to change its perception in the aftermarket world. She says it's rare for enthusiasts to modify domestic, economy cars; and while the Cruze is well known on the track, it's scarce in the VIP scene. Ballo says she's not only looking to change the reputation, but set a whole new standard. Essentially, Ballo explains she's looking to inspire other Cruze owners to make modification without the fear of being mocked.
