Feature: Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX

It's no secret that I'm a big Subaru fan. It's also no secret that I love modified cars. I've seen, shot and posted many modified subarus, including yesterdays Stanced WRX. But it's less common around here to see an Evo, let alone one as clean as this. The MSU Racing Club has 2 incredibly clean Evo 9's. I'll be covering the second one soon. Until then, check out this one.

Owned by Colton Sober, who works at Air Lift Performance here in Lansing, built this amazing car. This photo is, obviously, early on in the build. But it's always nice to see the progression of a build.

Colton has been a regular at local events. Many of you have seen the car.

As far as Evo's go, this is one of the cleanest you'll ever see. Lately, I've not seen it much, as he's gotten a new project, which will see a feature soon as well.







If you didn't know any better, you'd swear this car was right off the showroom floor. Colton goes to admirable effort to keep his cars looking as good as possible.

As always, this car draws a crowd wherever it parks. Every thing about the car is, in my opinion, perfect.
