In partnership with MannyZoom Media and Wrasslin' Kingdom Entertainment, we present to you the Car of The Month! This joint collaboration that will be posted monthly, to you, the reader. Now you are probably asking why is this necessary? Well, I am the common link between all three publications, thus I am trying to steal the spot light, success and the money... Not really, just feel like it is fair to our monthly winner to get as much public exposure as possible to showcase their beautiful builds.
Name: Justin Chong
YouTube: The J Media
MannyZoomMedia (MMM): What made you get this car? What are some of your favorite aspects of it?
Justin: When I first got this car, I was looking for a budget friendly-sporty sedan to use for Uber. It has to be how aggressive the car looks, especially with my mods, which include my custom wide body, Varis front bumper and the TE37SL wheels.
MMM: What is your mod-list? (Brace yourself readers)

MMM: What is your power output? At the Wheel?
Justin: Haven't had it dynoed so I'm not sure.
MMM: Most memorable moment? Any future plans for your beautiful car?
Justin: Winning Best Mitsubishi at Wekfest Texas has definitely been my most memorable moment since I have started this build. I am having a few Defi gauges wired and front splitter by Project Motorsports made soon. I also want a limited edition Vertex steering wheel, turbo the car, big brake kit and possibly wrapping it a different color.
I have been focusing going to car shows around Texas for the past 2 years but would like to have more track seat time this year. I took the Lancer to it's second track day this year and it was a bunch of fun!
MMM: Any sponsors to shout out? Any other shoutouts?
Justin: None at the moment. (If you love his build and would love to sponsor him, click on check out his Instagram page!)
A big thank you to all my friends who have helped me worked on the car. A huge shoutout to my subscribers on YouTube too for watching my build since I bought it brand new in November 2015. I want to inspire other car owners to build their cars! Thank you for the car feature MannyZoom Media!!!!
