Yannick Sire used to spend his days racing in his 1968 Chevy Chevelle and working for Ted Toki at Westside Performance. He developed a passion for hotrodding and all of the wonder that can be found in cars, and decided to open up his own shop in Inglewood, CA called Sire Custom Performance. Time went by and Sire tired of the same old vehicles coming in and out, so he started making plans to build something that would stand out in the crowd. That is when the Yannick Sire Priapism was born.
There’s an old saying that states, "If you want something done right, do it yourself." While the millions of people that have uttered that phrase a time or two mostly do it when co-workers screw something up or when something at home goes array, Yannick Sire of Sire Performance Custom Performance in Inglewood, CA meant it on a much bigger scale. He didn’t want to provide better landscaping or execute a perfect parallel parking job; he wanted to build a car. And not just any car, he wanted to build the perfect hot rod. A few years - and some spare parts and elbow grease - later, Sire had hand built himself a car that he felt earned the name of Priapism.
Priapism is actually a medical condition that was named after the Greek god Priapus who was known for his disproportionately large and permanent erection. Go ahead and look it up; you know you want to. But whatever its name translates into, the Sire Priapism has got some balls in the form of two Chevrolet 350 small block engines producing a total of 1000 HP. Adding that power to a comfortable 2,370 lbs car gave Sire a hot rod worth getting into.
