Cory Dahlgren is an unpredictable guy. The sort of unpredictable – where a Honda
is built in the back of a Toyota dealership by a former Subaru and Volkswagen
mechanic. The brand of unpredictable – that dailies a slammed-out S2000… and
keeps the Civic hatch as the show-off car. He has the unexpected appreciation for
all things well built, and the confidence to mismatch an engine bay this close to New
Jersey (just kidding, we love this). Cory has his own rhythm and style. He has his
own way of doing things, and if you don’t like it, well, he’s ok with that….
