Eric Guerette: 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX

Children often dream of accomplishments they hope to achieve when becoming an adult. Some aspire to be a firefighter, others dream of being a millionaire — but more often than not, adulthood meets reality and those dreams stay as just that. Eric Guerette’s childhood dream was simple: one day he wanted to own a rally car. The 2002 Subaru WRX wasn’t built overnight, of course, but with over 1,000 hours logged and $150,000 spent, Guerette says he’s gained much more than just a racecar during his time with this project.
