Almost Famous

A friend of mine, whose car is in the Reader Rides section, has been selected as a qualifier in Sport Compact Car’s Ultimate Street Car Challenge.

His name is Alan Card, and he’s got a 96 Impreza Brighton with a Legacy Turbo engine swapped in, along with a host of other quality modifications. My contributions to the project were finding the engine, the front calipers and 15″ Turbo wheels for his race rubber.

I honestly doubt that he’ll be chosen as one of the finalists, but to be the only non-WRX Subaru among 5 is pretty cool.

Check out some old pics of his car here.
