Cars, to some a piece of metal that gets you from A to B. For others it's a lifestyle, no matter if you like classics, exotics or tuned motors then the common ground is forged in the passion of the combustion engine, smell of fuel and the never ending enjoyment of being entertained by a giant rolling burnout.…Continue
While plodding the interweb I cam across this from the power house that is Sumo Power.
The Sumo Power Subaru Impreza GC8 is yet another example of no expense spared modifying from Sumo Power. It has come a long way since it entered the Sumo Power workshop as a plain white base model. But now, after years of care, we’re letting possibly our most famous car go to make way for our exciting future projects – and you can buy it today.
Managed to get my plate transferred the other day so it now takes pride of place on my daily driver....
