Mr. M’s 1972 Impala ’vert is the jade gem of the South Florida streets. With its candy fade, chrome nose and color-matching 26-inch Forgiatos, the aesthetic leaves little to the imagination and oozes flair. In addition to the radiant exterior, the guts are treated with a matching motif and the trunk is full of bang, loaded to the brim with JL Audio. As far as competition goes, Mr. M is solid on his stance—“I don’t compare it to others, because I hand-picked all the parts and shops. It’s so personalized, nothing compares to it.”
