Candy Ortiz for ShockerRacing GirlsConnecticut native, Candy Ortiz has been around cars her entire life.  When she was just 9 years old she was helping pull motors from cars!  22 years later, Candy is driving a modded 2009 Honda Civic Si that she plans to boost.  Candy also has her own car club along with running a CT Chapter for SI Club.  "I would much rather be in a garage with a beer and wrenching than out at a bar," Candy exclaimed, "If there are car shows or meets going on, you don't have to look hard to find me!"

Candy and her friend Ramhad Fields met up with photographer Sean Evelich at Sherwood Island in Westport, CT.  The crew decided it would be fun to stage a "Break Down" themed photoshoot with Candy busting out the wrenches to save the day.  "I used Ramhad in one of the photos to make it look like he was the damsel in distress!" laughed Ms. Ortiz.   The white Charger in the pics belongs to Ramhad and is a 2013 SXT nicknamed @Panda_Charger.  Ms. Ortiz chose to go with a You Can't Park With Us Crop T-Shirt and a pair of our famous Boyshorts for her feature.

When Candy isn't playing with cars she pays the bills as a Medical Records Analyst but she tells us cars are life!  "What I love about ShockerRacing is that it embodies everything I love about the car scene.  Since I was young I have enjoyed looking at cars, hearing them, working on them, and now modeling with them and SR brings that all together." Candy explained.

The Black Honda Civic Si that Candy drives is a 2009.  So far it features a nice selection of modifications until she can make a decision on whether to go with a Turbo or a Supercharger setup for boost.  If we offered to buy her any mod for the Civic regardless of cost, Candy would do a 2JZ swap into it but for now check out her mod list:

  • Lowered on Coilovers
  • JDM Halos
  • Magen Front and Rear Lips
  • Mishimoto Intake
  • Full Catback Exhaust
  • Bride Interior
  • Hondata
