I was just chatting with a friend the other day how crazy it would be to see a RWB Porsche just out and about on the highway or normal road. It would stand out like a sore thumb no doubt. Well my dream came true today. I turned on to the freeway and noticed a very white and wide Porsche up ahead. Then I noticed the red wheels and the hoonigan sticker. I knew for sure it was a RWB USA car. I sped up in my STI and right when I caught up with him we passed a Highway patrol car stopped in hiding. Luckily we were able to quickly bring speeds back down to 55. I cruised by him and snapped a pic and gave him a big thumbs up with a smile on my face. These cars are amazing. I’ve seen Mark’s Green RWB in person, and to see one on the streets now is just awesome!
I’ve been taking a break from the Subaru world for a little while now. After I put in a new heavy duty race clutch on my STI last year I told myself I wouldn’t be doing anything for a while to it. I’ve been thinking about what will be the next steps for my car lately. I want to do a few things to the car again. I don’t know exactly what direction I want to go with it right now so I’ve been looking around for a little inspiration. If you ask me there’s nothing better looking than a nicely built track STI with style in mind. I’m hoping to once again step my game up.
The WFC meet was a huge success! I was happy to see tons of my crew that I only get to see a few times a year. This will be one of those days I will not forget. I was surprised at the interest people showed in my E30 project car. Several people throughout the day came up to say how clean it was. The point of the build is for myself, but it was nice to get some recognition on how things are going for it so far! I posted my pics from the event on Fatlace already so check it out.
I’m loving the progress on my E30 project so far. I was able to throw on the door today that I picked up from another E30 guy for an awesome $40. The clearcoat is missing in some places so I worked at it to get it looking clean enough to rock until new paint. It is 100% better than rocking a banged up door that is for sure.
I spent a good portion of yesterday wrenching away on project E30. I did a full suspension overhaul, and I also got the car set up for a lower wider offset wheel with fender rolling and pulling. This car is going to be clean and classy but have race car inspiration from Japan and Europe once things are all done. I’ll be getting some more pics up soon.
Well the project has officially begun. I drove my girlfriend and her E30 from Sacramento to Los Angeles over the weekend. The car is going to be our little project together. I’m excited to make this thing a little more fun to look at and drive. I’ll be posting stuff up as the project goes along. Hopefully it will not take a lifetime, but I am in no hurry with this one. It’s about doing it right the first time.
