2005 Subaru Impreza - ARA Logbooked Rally Car
Frame VIN: JF1GD70685L517381

Just in time for a Christmas / New Year's gift. Originally built by Steve Czwalga, a podium-proven car in NA4WD class if you've got the guts and the skills. Just recently finished a full repaint in 02C World Rally Blue. Car sounds awesome, get yourself into the 2023 ARA season. Note: I don't have Facebook, if someone can cross-link this to the NA FS/FT group I would appreciate that!
