We first laid eyes on this build, a 1971 Penske-Donohue Sunoco Javelin replica, while it sat at Hanksville Hot Rods waiting for the exhaust system to be completed. When we saw it for the second time at the KBPI Rock 'n Roll Car Show at Bandimere Speedway, we knew we needed to spend some one-on-one time with her.
When Subaru first brought the WRX to American shores in 2002, no one could have imagined the impact it would have on the automotive world. Ten years later, the rally-bred Impreza has become almost clichéd - it seems like everyone has a friend with a 500-hp STi. What you don’t see very often is an Impreza that stands out from the crowd. This 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX is not one of those situations.
