well ive driven the car, it....is awesome. had a custom weird ass 2 inch exhaust with mo cats and a 50 series flowmaster built.
high angle drivelines made me a set of very nice drive-lines with way big joints
made custom speaker boxes for the ugly areas in the cargo hold. they turned out great

i have owned LOTS of weird crawlers, ratrods, hot rods, classics, and generally odd cars, nothing has ever garnered the kind of attention this car gets

first driving impressions are good, needs a few bugs worked out, i may go full hydro at some point
it doesnt sound like a subaru anymore and that sucks
but.....overall awesome success

well, the car is done, it drives beautifully, only real issue is the 5 speed shifter is cumbersome and will take some getting used too. but i drove it 55 miles in the last 24 hours, still handles like a car lol. no body roll, no weird braking characteristics, im very happy

Dan has sent me two texts with pictures.  I will try to upload them.   :thumbs:



And I can attest to Dan's photo abilities.  He is a FAR better fabricator than photographer.  And he is one hell of a friend!

That is turning out awsome. There's a big group of subi wheelers up north here in Washington that would love this.
