The owner behind the car

Every year the Automotive Networks, Inc team chooses an entrant to follow during the PasMag "Tuner BattleGrounds"
competition. Owners battle it out down to the final two vehicles where they face off head to head at SEMA every year.
Our choice solely isn't decided based on car alone, it has to do with the owner as well. This year we followed a 2001
Honda S2000 owned by Ger Reyes out of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. While the s2000 has an impressive
modifications list, his attitude was equally impressive. It was quickly noted the amount of positive oozing from the
daily posts asking for vote and shares, always ending with many thanks. It became intriguing. There were hopes Ger
would make it to the SEMA finals just to see if this guy was for real. He stood and delivered. Upon our first meeting
he began by thanking for our support in true Ger appreciative fashion. We were then told the story of how he set out
looking for a project car. He wanted a car destined for junkyards to save. One man's vision and persistence restored
from the ground back up a true champion.
