The Drivers Image was born in response to a lack of Import tuning in the Chicagoland area. It opened its doors in 1997 in Evanston, Illinois. Drivers Image immediately dominated the local market. The secret was: Fast, well built exciting import cars that dominated the mid-west. In june of 1999, Drivers Image first Show Car was featured in Super Street Magazine. This was the first time a Chicagoland Civic got into a nationally recognized magazine. Since then, the shop has expanded in to a 5000 square foot import tuning mega-facility. Now located in Skokie, Illinois, the staff of the Drivers Image have helped customers time and time again to build outstanding street, race and show cars.
Drivers Image cars have been featured in every Import magazine in the United States. Drivers Image specialized project cars have been seen on ESPN, Speed Channel and HorsePower TV. The last two projects, a 2003 350z coupe and 2004 350z roadster currently featured in a number of TV commercials for automotive products as well as Tuning magazines across the country. The Drivers Image currently has the bragging rights to the Fastest Toyota MR2 in America, driven by Vince F., who is also a part of the experienced Drivers Image staff. Our last project is an amazing ’04 350Z Roadster. The Roadster is sponsored by Tire Co., Stillen, AP Brakes, Dazz Motor Sports, Turtle Wax and many more. The 350Z Roadster was featured in the 2004 Show Circuit.
