Changing the Game // Part.2 // Reg’s Pr5

Roll out the welcome mat for the second feature on one of California’s leaders of the Mazda movement. We last left off in mid-May with Reg eager to build upon his already beautiful PR5 wagon. Reg is no rookie, making a car like this takes more than money, the know-how, and an idea.

To come as far as Reg and his PR5 have, it takes love. It takes a love for the car, a love for the scene, and a love for what it all means. This PR5 is an accurate metaphor of who Reg Rivera is. It’s not often we see PR5’s modified, or for that matter done right; so this car is a refreshing change of pace. We here at Happy Stance believe originality is key; and this ladies and gents, defines just that.

This build was no over-night job. This was a man and his car side by side making moves in the pursuit to perfection. Not a single part of this car was rushed. Patience is truly a virtue; whether it was waiting on the right parts to come in or, perhaps for the right income to afford certain things. It paid off! From his Goodrich clutch line to the custom fiber glass fender flares, this car has what we like to call smart-mods (modifications of purpose).
