Brandon Mcgragh: 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt SS

Brandon Mcgragh has owned a handful of Chevrolet Cobalt SS models, but two years ago he found this 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt SS that needed some work to get back in shape. Mcgragh took it upon himself to rebuild the car, fixing a few mistakes made by the previous owner. Along the way, he saw the potential in the platform, and decided he would modify it as much as possible.
