2003 Volkswagen 20th Anniversary GTI
I bought this car to get back into a MK4 chassis after losing my '04 R32, and quickly fell in love with it. It's number 2,943 out of 4,000 GTI's in North America, and out of 1,000 painted Jazz Blue - she's aptly named Violet. The modifications are enough to make her a very fun daily driver. It's tuned by EuroCustoms with their Stage 2 tune, which includes a two-step, launch control, and no lift shift. Inside the engine bay, she has a velocity stack intake, a/c and secondary air delete, silicone TIP, a Forge Motorsport 007 diverter valve, 2.0T coil packs, and 3-inch turbo back exhaust. She's lowered on WRD coil overs and rocking Audi Ultrasports in the summer.

2012 BMW E92 M3
My dream of being a M3 owner has finally become a reality. Sure, there are faster and better cars out there, but I’ve admired BMW’s M line since I was a teenager. Back in the day I saw an episode of Top Gear where they featured the E46 M3, and I told myself that I needed to have one in my lifetime. Fast-forward a few years to now, and I am lucky enough to have found the one and even luckier to have found a rare Frozen Silver Edition with only one owner. This car puts a smile on my face every time I drive it.

 

Wesley Butcher / Sales Specialist, Diesel
2007 Dodge Ram 2500 5.9 Cummins
This is my daily-driven 670 horsepower 'Money Pit' Cummins. I bought it in West Texas about three years ago, and drove it 1800-plus miles home. Three weeks later, I had a valve seat let go and destroy two pistons, my cylinder head and turbo. I rebuilt the top end with a good friend and have been modifying it ever since. I look forward to this year’s track day to see what it does in the quarter-mile.
Jeremy Sassaman / Sport Compact Sales Manager
2014 Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited Sahara
Although I have owned a couple Jeeps in the past, this is my first Wrangler. It is my daily driver, and is an extremely fun vehicle to drive in the summer. The current upgrades include 18x8.5-inch Enkei ST6 color matched wheels, a Hella LED light bar, DBA 4000 brake rotors, and Hawk LTS brake pads. I plan to add some Bilstein Shocks in the near future.
Mike DeFusco / Accounts Payable Specialist
1992 Mitsubishi 3000GT
My 3000 started out as a base model sporting a non-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine, automatic transmission and front-wheel-drive configuration. After four years of working on it while still going to college, the car was finished in the summer of 2015, and now features a twin turbo V6, 5-speed transmission and all-wheel-drive sourced from a donor front clip imported from Japan. The car has a long list of modifications because I figured it would be easiest to knock everything out while the car was basically down to a bare shell. From the larger 13G turbos to the custom-made RetroSpec front lip, this car was built with the weekend warrior mindset, but to also grab attention at shows.
Mike Malloy / Senior Buyer I
2005 BMW E46 M3
I had very specific requirements for an E46 M3 so it took 14 months to find this car. My target car was a low option 6MT with sunroof delete and cloth interior in either Alpine White or Silver Grey Metallic. Oddly, I found a car that met my exact requirements at a local VW dealer – it was traded on a Tiguan, and 16 hours later it was mine. The car has just two options: bi-xenon headlights and heated seats. No navigation, no parking sensors, no headlight washers or other BS. I quickly handled all preventative maintenance to ensure the car is bulletproof for years to come. The car was bought to be driven year-round, but one white-knuckle snow-filled winter forced me to buy an F31 xDrive wagon and retire the M3 to fair weather use. It’s currently used for spirited drives and occasional track days. Notable mods on my M3 include one of Stoptech's 4 wheel big-brake kits, Advan GT forged wheels, ST XTA coilovers, and DINAN exhaust.
Daryl Sampson / Director of Marketing
2016 BMW F80 M3
I remember the first E30 M3 as a kid and I've always wanted one. The car is my daily driver but also a project car for me. I love the styling, power and practicality of the M3.

1995 Lexus LS400
Since I started getting more serious with my Evo, I needed to get a daily driver. I began purchasing and flipping a few lower-value “beaters” until I was able to accrue enough money to buy this 1995 Lexus LS400. The 1UZ-FE, DOHC 4.0L V8 is an extremely well built and reliable motor; mine has 175,000 miles and still runs smooth enough to balance a nickel on the intake manifold. Being the car enthusiast I am, I still had to mess with a perfectly good vehicle. I found a great deal on some, now discontinued, 19-inch 3-Piece SSR Vienna Dish II wheels. These fit the vehicle's style perfectly, and are nearly “period correct” for the car. Since spec on these wheels were fairly weak, I installed some 15mm spacers up front and 25mm in the rear until I can get them rebuilt for a wider track width. I also lowered the vehicle on a set of coilovers to fit the wheels a bit better. From here, I fixed the fishbowl by wrapping the windows and windshield in ceramic tint film for added aesthetics and heat protection, installed JDM Style clear front side markets, LED tail lights, and removed the rear 2 mufflers because 5 is just way too many... Custom exhaust coming soon, but for now, this “Land Yacht” is the perfect mixture of style, comfort and reliability.

2013 Scion FR-S 10 Series
My 2013 Scion FRS is a 10 Series, the 10 Series celebrates Scion being in North America for 10 years. This package was only available to the North American market and comes with exclusive features. The most notable feature is the color; Silver Ignition. You can’t get this color anywhere else in the world and was limited to only 2500 examples. Even though my FRS is a special edition, it’s no garage queen. I use it primarily as a daily driver, I’ve also had her out for open track days. On the track I can really put to use some of the cars upgrades; Bilstein PSS10 coilovers, Stoptech Trophy BBK, and Gram Light 57C6 wheels wrapped in sticky RE71R rubber. The car was tuned by a customer; Mike at Moto East. I’m also using Moto East’s Flex Fuel Kit so I can run E85. The car is an absolute blast to drive, I feel really blessed to have such a fun car. I’d like to thank to my amazing customers and Turn 14 Distribution for helping me with my build.
Kyle Shelley / Director of Sales
2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat
This is the first non-Subaru I’ve owned since 2002 and I couldn’t be happier. This car is a beast! It's currently unmodified but I plan on getting slicks and a tune for the next track day.
Paul Telesca / Senior Marketing Program Coordinator
2014 Nissan Juke Nismo
Since I spent a large part of my driving career daily driving my project cars, I decided it was time for something more reliable but something I could still be enthused about driving. Being a fanboy of Japanese culture and having built B-Chassis Nissans, the Juke Nismo fit the bill. Though I had to trade the six-speed transmission for the CVT unit in order to get AWD over FWD, the Nismo makes plenty of turbo noise, handles confidently, and is aggressive and quirky enough to turn heads. It is lightly modded with just a Seibon GTR Style Hood, Injen SRI, Injen Exhaust, MassRP Downpipe, Bully Dog tuner, and some Hellas. Until I pick up another project, when I jump in the Juke Nismo and see the red centering stripe while gripping the Alcantara steering wheel, the enthusiast in me gets his fix.
Terrell Smith / Senior Web Development Programmer
2015 VW Golf R with DCC
It is a daily driver, and so far the only mods are Weathertech mats, CQUARTZ Finest coating, and Enkei Raijin wheels held on with WheelMate Mevius wheel bolts. I also have a Recaro booster seat for my daughter!
Jon Williams / Accounts Payable Specialist II
2008 Ford Mustang GT Premium
This car is mainly used as a weekend warrior. It is lowered on Koni Yellow dampers with H&R Super Sport springs and a Whiteline adjustable Panhard rod. The car also has a complete exhaust system from BBK and SLP, along with a short shifter and a C&L intake. I've made occasional trips to the drag strip, and have future plans for a supercharger.
John Conchado / Senior Customer Service Representative
2012 Chevrolet Duramax 2500HD
The truck is used as a weekend warrior mixed with some daily driving and towing. The truck produces over 800 horsepower and 1500 foot pounds of torque to the rear wheels and has run the best time of 11.53 at 119 mph in the quarter mile. Some modifications under the hood are the Fleece Performance S400 turbocharger, Dual CP3’s, Suncoast Built Transmission and Converter, AFE intercooler, Wehrli down pipe, Y bridge and T4 pedestal, Airdog 165, DRP sump, PPE manifolds and up pipes, and Exergy Injectors among others. It’s often spotted towing a trailer full of ATVs to Northern Pennsylvania.

 

Keith Johnson / Customer Service Representative
1995 Mazda Miata
The car began as a daily driver that I purchased with the intent to add performance upgrades for back roads, autocross, and possible track days. I modified the suspension first because handling and balance are important to me. Some more power and chassis bracing soon followed to create a fun, balanced daily driver with attention to detail - what the Miata is all about!
Kyle Crawford / Senior Media Project Coordinator
1990 Honda Civic EF Hatch
It is a 2000-pound ITR-swapped Civic hatchback used for HPDE track days.
Colin Rogerson / Sales Specialist, Sport Compact
2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX MR
My 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX MR is on the fence between a street and track car, and I like it that way. First thing you will see is the custom painted Seibon CWII hood and the 10 mm wider fenders as well as the CSL-Style Trunk lid. The Cusco Front Power Brace and ETS 3.5” FMIC core sits nicely in the grille, accompanied by spot-anodized short route piping for faster spool. The head has been built with GSC R2 Billet cams, beehive springs and Titanium retainers. Some other key points would be the Spoolin’ Up COP for better spark, and the 1450 cc injectors to make sure there will be plenty of fuel once I switch to E85 and a larger turbo in the future. On the hot side, the car is equipped with a straight-through 3-inch Buschur Racing exhaust from the turbo back, exiting under an Evo IX JDM rear bumper. So, sure, it’s 5-speed swapped and lowered on 9.5-inch wide Enkei RS05-RR wheels wrapped in 265 series Achilles rubber. Sure, it’s got a custom bent half cage, Sparco Evo II bucket seats and Sabelt 4-Point harnesses; but it’s still on a stock bottom end and stock turbo making 390 awhp, keeping that punchy response and low boost threshold that is a necessity when it comes to “streetability.” ;)
Chris Candido / Chief Technology Officer
2014 BMW F10 M5 Competition
This car is completely stock except for some IND blackout side grills and is my daily driver. It is not as fast as Jon's E63 AMG Mercedes, but it doesn't need to be because it looks better, like BMW's always do. The fastest pass I have gotten out of this car was a 12.29 in the 120 mph range, but I'm sure it can go faster with the driver mod.
Mohammed Ayad / Senior Buyer II
2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray LT2 Z51
I fell in love with this car at SEMA 2014 and had to have one. The performance and updated look drew me in, especially in white with the Stormtrooper look (black and white). It took me a year to figure out how I could make one my own. I placed an order for my first new car ever spec'd out with, Z51 performance package, magnetic ride, NPP valve exhaust, Kalahari leather interior, carbon flash package, blacked out logos and a performance data recorder. Before the car left the dealership it was tinted, clear bra-ed and ready for a coast to coast adventure from California to PA. Since then the car has been lowered on stock bolts before going out to an auto-x event, track day and the dragstrip. My future plans for the car include some OEM/OEM-plus exterior upgrades, Z06 front splitter, Z06 grill, Z06 Rear Quarter Panel vent scoops and a side skirt. In terms of performance headers and x-pipe are will be in the near future with plans for a supercharger to follow. The car will get some track time and will be my nice-day daily-driver.
Jason Hord / Senior Sales Specialist, Muscle
1996 Ford Mustang Cobra
I bought the car over 12 years ago from the owner of the company I worked for at the time. It was well modified when I got it, so I mostly left it in that form for the first eight or nine years and enjoyed driving it and taking it to shows. In that form, it dyno'd with 298 horsepower and 276 lb-ft of torque at the rear wheels and ran a best of 13.1 at 108 mph in the quarter-mile. After joining Turn 14 Distribution in 2012, I got the bug to modify the car further and found a great deal on a used Vortech supercharger kit. After installing the kit with some accompanying fuel and drivetrain modifications the car made 421 hp and 358 lb-ft of torque on about 7 psi boost pressure. I ran the car this way for about a year until the engine let go at our company drag day and I decided to build a new short block with the help of L&M Engines. I also had the supercharger upgraded and revamped the fuel system to make sure it would last this time.
Andrew Trujillo / Sales Specialist, Sport Compact
2011 Mazda MX-5 Miata Touring
After working professionally on an SCCA race team for 5 years, it became hard to deny the fact that the Miata is easily one of the most versatile and economic track cars a driver can buy. Modifications are limited to what I consider to be the bare necessities; I started by installing 255/40/R17 BFGoodrich Rival tires on 17x9 Enkei RPF1 wheels. After that, I installed Bilstein’s B16 PSS10 coilover kit before I scaled and aligned the car. Next, I added Hawk’s aggressive “Street Race” brake pads and premium Stoptech rotors on all four corners. Power modifications include a PPE Long Tube Header, a Good Win Racing RS-II exhaust, and a re-programmed ECU using ECUTek's RaceRom software on a Dynojet dyno. I use a Hard Dog roll bar to protect myself at track days and an Agency Power antenna for added looks and superior reception for the ride home. Everything, including the dyno tuning and corner balanced alignment was done by me!

2015 Lexus IS350 F Sport
I daily drive the car, not used for any motorsports. It’s lowered on RSR Springs and has an exhaust.
Paul Coffey / Customer Support Supervisor
1980 Triumph TR8 Drop Head Coupe
 My father and I purchased this TR8 in the mid-1990s with around 30,000 original miles on it, from the original owner. At this point we have more than doubled that total. This car is a driver and has been to shows as far as north as Canada and as far south as South Carolina. It has also been autocrossed numerous times in addition to a few trips to the drag strip over the years. Engine modifications have been limited to the top end, with many parts coming from The Wedge Shop in Taunton, Massachusetts. We kept the block stock in the 3.5-liter engine, and we have enhanced the breathing with a Holley 390 four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer intake manifold and air filter.

Internal modifications have been limited to an upgraded custom camshaft. We have also added ceramic-coated Tri-Y headers and a 2.5-inch-diameter dual exhaust system. Other underhood modifications have been limited to air conditioning delete, GM alternator conversion and Wedge Shop alternator bracket. The exterior is very original and sports 15x7-inch Panasport wheels; hiding behind those wheels is a Wilwood four caliper disc-brake conversion. The interior has minimal modifications - a short shifter, modern radio, LED bulb conversion for the gauges and a roll bar. This car will be in our family for the next generations to come. My late sister loved this car and frequently auto crossed it before her passing. She now travels with us to shows and events in spirit.
Jon Pulli / Chief Executive Officer
2014 Mercedes E63 AMG S
This is my first Mercedes, and it is by far the most enjoyable daily driver I’ve owned.  My AMG is lowered with H&R Springs, and sits on black HRE FF15 Wheels.  The car has an AMS Alpha tune, and consistently runs the quarter-mile in 11.4 seconds with 128 mph trap speeds.

 

Matt Floyd / IT & Help Desk Associate
2003 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra
I bought my Cobra in the summer of 2004 when it had 10,000 miles on it. It’s been garage kept ever since and is primarily used as a fun cruising/show vehicle, with a few occasional trips to the dragstrip. It’s run a best time of 12.8 seconds in the quarter mile with the stock Eaton supercharger. The few modifications I have performed are a K&N FIPK, McLeod RXT clutch, custom exhaust and a short throw shifter. It was recently selected as a Celebrity Choice award winner for the 2016 Carlisle All Ford Nationals by Ford Performance celebrity judges.
Daryl Sampson / Director of Marketing
1984 Mazda RX7 GSL-SE
The car has 87,XXX original miles and I'm the 3rd owner. I bought the car completely stock about 5 years ago with the goal of doing a mild restoration as a resto-mod. It's driven about 600 miles a year on Sunday drives.
Mike Fruehauf / Senior Purchasing Assistant
1999 Honda Civic
My car has a B18C engine and transmission, Regamaster EVO wheels, and Tein Monosport suspension. I recently rebuilt the engine with a set of JE Pistons, Manley Rods, Manley Valvetrain and Skunk2 cams. Although I do occasionally drive it on the street, it is mostly used as a track car on the road course.
Jason Reiss / Senior Media Project Coordinator
2011 Ford Mustang GT
My 2011 Mustang GT is the car I've wanted ever since the 5.0-liter Coyote engine was announced to the public; after a few years of lusting away, I was finally able to pull the trigger on this Grabber Blue machine in the spring of 2014. I traveled all the way to Lawrenceburg, Kentucky to pick it up -- a 1,340-mile round trip -- to purchase the one-owner car. Since then, it's been modified with a ProCharger P-1SC-1 supercharger, Baer Eradispeed+2 brake rotors, an MGW Race Spec shifter, and a host of other appearance and performance items. It's never complete, as I'm planning on upgrading the suspension along with the clutch this year. The car is taken to a variety of Philly-area Cars and Coffee events and shows all summer long, with a few dragstrip trips thrown in for good measure.
 
With the supercharger on board, the car spun the dyno roller to 618 horsepower at 7,350 rpm. At the track, the car has knocked down a best elapsed time of 11.15 at 126 mph, with more on tap for the future. I drive it every day to work here at Turn 14, and it's the best car I've ever owned.
