Damien Grant: 2006 Subaru WRX STI

Damien Grant and his 2006 Subaru WRX STI started their journey together in Alaska, where he chose the car because of its AWD prowess and performance. It wasn't long before his Subaru underwent a full motor build to make more power. From there, Grant moved to California, where the stance scene got his attention. Today, he has found a way to walk the fine line between form and function with his bagged Subaru STI with a built motor.
