Tuner Evolution has been on our radar for years and for '16, they're celebrating 10 years in the scene! We were stoked to check out their Spring Gathering in SoCal this April but Tuner Evo is better known across the East Coast and the group kicked things off this month with a very successful show in Daytona Beach.
According to organizers, over 320 approved and registered cars were ready to fill the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach. Some rain ended up deterring some rides, but as you can tell from these photos from our friend, Josh Rivera, the show was still crackin' and featured plenty of eye candy. Their mega show is coming up at the end of July in Philly so you can bet we'll have more Tuner Evo coverage as we celebrate their 10-year anniversary.
As a final note, our regular contributor Big Mike was out in Florida as the Master of Ceremonies and to also give us his first-hand account from the show. Enjoy!
"Tuner Evolution is celebrating its 10-year anniversary and its first stop of 2016 was in Daytona Beach, Florida. The show had a great vibe and was very well rounded, displaying an eclectic gathering of builds. Walking through the show I noticed a Lamborghini Huracan, a widened, turbo Miata, a RHD Volkswagen Corrado, an R34 Nissan Skyline, not to mention an array of Porsches from classic to contemporary. A K-swapped ITB Honda, RHD widebody Aristo, turbo'd Dodge Caliber SRT, and a Liberty Walk Challenger are just a few examples of the diverse showing at this Tuner Evolution event.
"Enthusiasts from all over the state, including Orlando, Miami, Tampa, and other areas flocked in to participate and attend the event, but car owners brought their vehicles from surrounding states such as Mississippi, Georgia, and North Carolina. Others came from even further, bringing their cars from Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey, and New York.
"The next stop on the tour is the biggest of them all, the home base Philadelphia show, happening on July 30th. And the final stop on the tour is North Carolina, happening Sept. 17th." - Big Mike
