Nicholas Mendoza, 26 of College Place, WA, is the proud owner of this 2002 hot Honda Civic Si. Mendoza, a manager at Schucks Auto Supply, will be graduating from Automotive Technology in June from Walla Walla Community College (WWCC).

“I have been working on import vehicles for quite a few years, and look forward to working in the industry for quite a while before hoping to open my own performance shop,” Mendoza said.


After seeing the performance modifications made to his Civic, the staff at Tomorrow’s Technician feels Mendoza will be successful at his shop. Of course, building a car of this caliber takes time, commitment and support. And Mendoza said he is appreciative of the help he received. “I would just like to thank the guys at CorSport USA for being an awesome sponsor and team, James Haun, Mike Adams (WWCC auto instructors), my friends, my family, Heather and especially my kids for putting up with me.”
