Archie’s 2 Door EVO on

Archie’s 2 Door EVO is blowing up big time. It is all over the place and now it’s on

Archie Concon's Mirage to Evo VI Conversion

Archie’s Evo VI… Sort Of

What can be said about Archie’s car that hasn’t already been written in magazines? It’s a work of art. It’s commitment. It’s dedication. It’s just as much an evo as any other evo out there, but it started off as a Mirage.

Once again I’m doing a feature about an evo. But this one’s a bit different. Archie Concon’s 2000 Mitsubishi Mirage has been breaking necks for years, and for good reason. Popularly known as the two-door Evo, this car went through a full Evo VI conversion and it’s nothing short of amazing.

To the average joe out there this car is nothing more than another modified car. To the enthusiast this is a work of art. This is a perfect example of what can be achieved with passion and time. It’s not about buying all the parts, it’s about buying the right ones.

I don’t have much to write about this build, I really don’t think I can do it justice. I would rather just show the photos I captured and try to give you guys a glimpse into Archie’s work on his two-door Evo. I’m sure this isn’t the first time you’ve seen this car, and I’m sure it won’t be the last!
