What began the build-up of your vehicle?
I bought this car thinking it wouldn’t need many upgrades. I was wrong. I soon realized that the marketplace has opened up to Subarus and then it started. I slowly started with an exhaust and rims, then one thing led to another and now I have a 450 horsepower 4-door monster. One thing I learned through working on my car is nothing is ever good enough, it can always be made better.

Car Club Affiliation:
Obsessive Custom Designs

Are you a member of a car club?
I’ve been a member of Obsessive Custom Designs for about a year and a half now. It’s a local club based out of Peoria, Illinois for a variety of cars and has varied quite a bit since I joined. When I started it was made up of a few Scions, a Charger, a Hummer, an Aztek, a Firebird, and a few other cars. It now consists of a few more highly modified cars including a G8 and a new Camaro. So there’s a nice variety of cars. The club’s site is still being worked on, but information is still accessible through myspace (myspace.com/obsessivecustomdesign)

What events have you competed in?
I’ve competed at quite a few car shows over the past 3 show seasons from local shows, large tours, cruise-ins, charity/benefit shows and scion exclusive shows. Some of these shows include: HIN/Nightshift Chicago, Nightshift Columbus, Slamology, DUB Memphis, DUB Chicago, various Scion shows in Iowa, Missouri Chicago Area and Indy; as well as many, many local shows in the Central Illinois region. I’ve also competed in USACi and IASCA sanctioned stereo competitions and local audio store competitions
