This year for the ninth annual Scion Tuner Challenge, Scion teamed up with the Editors of Super Street magazine to help with the selection of the three finalists and winners. The three finalists, whose modified 2014 Scions will be displayed at SEMA in Las Vegas Nov. 5-8 are Josh Croll of Mertztown, Pa., Walter Franco of Seattle and Young Tea of Alhambra, Calif. The winner will be announced Nov. 6 during the SEMA, and first place will receive $10,000.

The Scion Tuner Challenge provided the finalists with a stock 2014 Scion tC, a 179 hp vehicle which boasts a 2.5L, four-cylinder engine and is available in dealerships now. The finalists were provided with a $15,000 build budget and given the green light to unleash their creativity by personalizing the vehicle.
