Colin Bechtel picked up his 2007 Subaru WRX as a daily driver back in 2010, but after a few years of daily driving duty, he started to modify the WRX piece by piece, starting off simple, but eventually snowballing into a full projcet. After a few car shows, he began modifying with competition in mind, transforming the car inside and out to his own vision of the perfect car.
