Silvestre Rodriguez has been a Mitsubishi fan for some time. After building a 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer GT a few years ago, he decided it was time to pull the trigger on his dream car - a Mitsubishi Evolution. He picked up a 2004 Mitsubishi Evolution, and started modifying almost immediately, with an emphasis on performance.
