Long Tran: 2011 Subaru WRX

Long Tran picked up his 2011 Subaru WRX as its second owner back in 2013, as he was looking for a sporty Subaru with a sunroof. Determined to do almost all modifications by himself, the car has been worked on in his garage with some help from friends over the past 5 years, culminating in a Subaru WRX that is truly one of a kind.
