In the past a Nissan 240sx would come to mind as gutted, LS swapped, and pouring smoke off the rear tires as it slides around the horseshoe at Road Atlanta. A track beast, sure, but not a quite like this. Brian’s S13 completely changed my outlook on modified 240s, taking a different and bold route to turn this car into something unexpected.
There’s something to be said about being able to turn an otherwise unnoticed daily driven grocery getter into a head-turning masterpiece at a car show. Ryan Knittel has achieved just that with his 2004 Subaru WRX wagon. What started off as a simple car purchase with a short list of future modifications, turned into a full-blown build with quite an exhausted list of “goodies”.
“Aysuus,” the front of Jesse Gallegos’ Nissan S13 says it all. Filipino for “Wow!”, Aysuus is exactly how I felt when I first saw Jesse’s Silvia.
This is what surprise looks like. When Bryan Rizzo purchased a bone stock Mitsubishi Evo and brought it home, no one expected it to evolve into what it has become today.

Southern Worthersee is awesome, there is no other way to put it. The people, the cars, and the location in general could not be more perfect. It’s more than just a car show. Though there may be a lot of awesome cars SoWo has become a vacation more than anything. This being the 7th installment of the tribute show to Worthersee SOWO has grown into one of the biggest Euro shows on the east coast. Through the hard work of the staff and the enthusiast in the VW scene the show has taken on a life of it’s own. We all get the privilege to call this tiny mountain city home for five days in May and we always remember why when we take that first glimpse on Helen, GA.
This week we bring you Ashton William’s Nisan Silvia S13 shot by our very own Matt Best.
Hope you northerners are surviving in this cold weather! This Wednesday we warm you up with Jarald Yutadco’s bagged Honda RSX, shot by Jordan Adkins.
