Derrick Antes originally needed a car with AWD for Oregon living, so the search was on. He was a huge fan of the R34 GT-R, but since that was well out of the realm of possibility, he began looking at the Subaru STI and Mitsubishi Evo platforms. After finding himself leaning more towards the Subaru, he tracked down "the one", and bought it. Now living in Coral Gables, FL, he has modified the 2012 Subaru WRX STI to new levels.
