Luke Mesiti: 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution

Luke Mesiti found his way into the car world thanks to his family. With grandfathers that did car repairs, and an uncle that built crazy custom machines, it wasn't long before he found himself wanting to get in on the fun. Four years ago a tragic accident took Mesiti's Honda S2000 away, so he picked up a 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution to start fresh. With experience working on cars, he takes pride in doing the work to the car himself, including the body work.
