Today we want to show you really gorgeous example of car tuning. This is 1963 Buick Riviera with tuning by Fesler. The Scottsdsale, Arizona, dweller, co-owner and CEO of toymaker Ronin Syndicate, Tony Diaz, began his pursuit of the dark side a few years ago, combing the country for the perfect candidate for his evil mission. “I had been looking for a Riviera for a long time,” explains Tony. “I wanted it to look thug, but not modern-day thug—more like something from the ’30s,” proclaims Tony. “Like you would expect dudes with tommy guns to jump out of it.” Tony definitely had gangster goals, and thankfully his friend Chris Fesler was up for the task of making Tony’s dreams a reality.
One of the most intriguing aspects of the rapacious Rivi is the exclusive yet abnormal rolling gear. With more than 3,000 watts of power going to the Kicker subwoofers and speakers, not only does it pound pavement, but it casts fear on anyone daring enough to peek inside. Upon unlatching the lid, you witness glowing red Plexiglas with an unforgettable inscription: “Satan’s Sled.” “I know this car is not for everybody. It’s supposed to look mean as hell,” explains Tony. “But you don’t build a car for everybody to like. You build it based on stuff you’re into – and for respect.”
