Torch Red Camaro meets HRE 101
Nick T had upgraded from a mustang to the 2017 Torch Red ZL1 early. It was love at first burnout. The color was right, the torque was incredible. Everything seemed to be going as planned for his first few months of ownership.
In a blissful state Nick failed to anticipate one issue that nobody should have to deal with. Thieves. Parking his car in the same spot outside of his house he never would have thought that someone would be plotting to deface his investment.
Up on blocks, wheel-less, and burnt out, Nick had to step up to bat and deal with the issue. After numerous phone calls back and forth with insurance finally the car was released and taken to the local dealership to begin the slow and painful process of rebuilding her. Carrying a positive attitude towards the situation Nick had been plotting his own comeback.
Seeking the silver lining Nicks awesome attitude on the situation brought forth a beautiful rebirth. Nicks 2017 Torch Red ZL1, now nicknamed “Project Phoenix”, was going to be outfitted with, not only locking lug nuts but as well with some some new shoes, Racing shoes.
The “re-birth” of the 2017 Torch Red Camaro
Hayashi Racing Equipment more readily known as HRE is one of the world’s most iconic aftermarket wheel brands. As the second oldest aftermarket wheel manufacturer in the industry starting in 1978. They have become known for their exquisite attention to detail and industry leading manufacturing. HRE has successfully carved a reputation and became the household name worldwide for car lovers young and old.
Nick made it plain and simple quality over quantity was the aim and we were the men tasked with the job. Our goal was the simple rebirth of an american icon and nothing but perfection would due. We called up the boys at HRE and began the process of detailing the build from width to offset and center cap construction to concave profile. Not a single inch of this specially tasked assignment was left untouched. The outcome, well simply amazing, not only did we have the pleasure of doing what we do best and what we love, but ultimately providing Nick his dream setup.
Re-branded, re-born, re-ignited, you’ll try to catch Nick on the street, but probably won’t be able to. Might be easier to come down to the PK headquarters for one of our open houses and check out his car here.
