Trunk builds helped launch the tuning scene in the early '90s, and while there have been ups and downs in popularity, the recent trend at car shows, big and small, have seen car builders return to the back end to create some of the most spectacular trunks we’ve ever seen.
It began with audio, and now, the creative metalsmiths, suspension techs and performance-minded have taken their artistic wares to the same place for your viewing pleasure.
Air tanks, copper tubing, hardwood floors, motorized amp racks, fuel cells and the return to molded fiberglass sub boxes can be found capturing titles and trophies throughout the continent and worldwide. Want a complete build that’ll blow peoples’ minds? It’ll require a new line of thinking beyond interior and exterior modifications; trunks are a blank template where the magic really happens.
