2015 Subaru Legacy
I’m a Car Enthusiast that has been involved with Import Scene since 1998. I follow all types of Motorsports, but WRC has always been my favorite and that’s what pushed me to purchase my First Subaru a 1998 Subaru Impreza 2.5rs which I still have today.
Why did you choose this car?
I’ve been in the Import Tuner Industry doing Car Shows since 2002. When I started Showing Subaru’s they didn’t even have a class to be judged it was always “Import Other”. So to see the Show Scene grow over the years is amazing and to see how Subaru has been represented is great. I chose my Subaru Legacy because it’s different and I’m always looking to push the envelope to be different.
What makes your build unique?
When I purchased my 2015 Subaru Legacy I wanted to bring something different and unique to the Import Show Scene most people are used to seeing Foresters, Wrx/Sti Builds for Show and I’m that kind if guy that thinks outside of the box. I wanted to compete in the VIP Style of Competition and thought the New Generation 6 Subaru Legacy 3.6R had the potential to do that.
How did you get started in the car scene?
After following the WRC for so long and getting involved with a Subaru Club in Seattle Area called “Intrinsic” in 2002 we decided to start participating in the Import Show Scene and thats where it all started I was pretty much hooked on the Tuner/Show Scene ever since. I’ve always felt we introduced the Subaru Brand into the Show Scene because as stated before they didn’t have a category for Subaru so we always had to compete in the “Import Other Class”.
Bio Of Car Crew
When I moved from the Pacific Northwest to San Diego in 2004 I met Freddie the Owner/Friend of Autofashion USA. It was amazing to see his car builds and his direction in the Car Scene I think with his out of the box thinking he introduced the “VIP Style” Market to the Luxury Import Scene. Even though at the time I had a Tuner Car when I met Freddie he didn’t turn me away, but welcomed to his shop and took me under his wing and has supported me in every way. I’m proud to represent Autofashion USA 24/7.
