Meeting Our WRX

Update by Tom Suddard to the Subaru Impreza WRX project car
Aug 11, 2012

Our new WRX runs well enough to splash around in.
It only has some slight front-end damage.
The interior is nearly new!
The passenger side fender is not!
The car is stock, which is a plus; and dirty, which is a minus.

This car might be too good to cut up and turn into an 818.

Knowing we’d be receiving one of the first Factory Five 818 kits, which requires a Subaru WRX donor car, we put up a wanted ad on our classifieds forum. A few hours later, we bought a very rough 2002 WRX for $2012.

Long story short, we underpaid by a fair margin. In fact, this car might be too good to cut up and turn into an 818.
