As a great man once said, "a picture is worth a thousand words." In the case of Rudy and Sonia Lopez's 2007 Dodge Magnum, the picture is a large one with many subtle and obvious details. Introduced in 2004 as a 2005 model year, the Magnum name has adorned many different platforms with the most recent being a rear-wheel drive station wagon donning multiple personalities.

Available with the standard V6 or the legendary Hemi V8 motors, consumers have the ability to pick and choose whether to walk on the safe side or drive like a bat out of hell.

For Rudy and Sonia, they chose the 2007 Dodge Magnum R/T equipped with a powerful 5.7 liter Hemi V8. Being "average" car enthusiasts, Rudy and Sonia arrived at the 2012 SEMA show to high accolades with an above average ride, or should we say a low ride. Completed with no donations or sponsorships, save for their hard earned money, these two car enthusiasts had only attended SEMA once previously in 2011 as spectators. Having dabbled slightly in air suspension and bodywork, Rudy is more of a "detail guy making whatever it may be sparkle and shine" and who wanted to build a car with "no theme or special interest ... other than wanting the "wtf" reaction out of people when they see it."

The intricate "ghosted and hologrammed" details of the paint job leave onlookers astonished by what they see and what they possibly didn't see. Plenty of people though see the amount of work and detail that has gone into this Magnum and have given Rudy and Sonia something else to show off:

numerous car show awards, features in Streetseen Magazine, J-Lug Magazine, the 2013 Route 66 Casino Calendar, Piloteando TV, and other social media sites. When asked why they chose K&N, Rudy replied "we have the K&N cold air intake on the vehicle, reason being number one just the quality of the product, and overall performance, appearance, durability and the warranty of the product."

These two newly inducted SEMA veterans are planning on modifying Sonia's 2007 Chevy Avalanche with air bags, 28 inch wheels, a full Coach interior and new paint. Here is a list of the modifications done to the Magnum:

  • Air ride suspension
  • Full leather interior
  • Suede accents
  • Painted interior panels
  • Exterior paint
We asked Rudy what their goals are for the future and he replied "for this upcoming year is more exposure, more magazines, more awards and just keep doing what we love to do fixing up are cars as a hobby, showing at car shows and bringing smiles to people's faces." Sounds like a great plan to us.
