As often as we get caught up on the "bad seeds" of the scene, there are many good people that simply love cars. Last year I met a car loving family man named Mike Davila when he rode out to California for the Annual Eibach meet with his friend Ray Briones. Mike's loyal wife supported his hobby enough to take the 14 hour ride from Texas with them all. Mike and his wife left a lasting impression on me. Mike and I kept in touch over the following year, talking about his build and daily life. During an online conversation Mike told me he was going to finish his car bring it to California for the 2012 Eibach Meet, I honestly wasn't too sure if I'd see him again because the car didn't seem like it would be done in time but to my surprise the guy pulled through and made it to California to visit and attend the meet.
This video is the result of a lot of hard work, dedication, love and support for a hobby that brings people together while living an "AutoLife".
