You either have to LOVE Subaru's, or HATE yourself, to drive that car.

Well I am loathed to put a 911 video, fuck knows you would be lucky to find a track day without one. This owner admitted that it is the Single speed bicycle hipster in tight jeans and glasses of the car custom scene. Essentially taking an 80's 911 SC and made it look like an early model because the 80's were shameful and lack of creature comforts take on a puritanical atonement in the eyes of petrolheads

But I will let that slide as he has found a good way of masking his wheels....
