Abstract: Under the Radar
Sometimes the best-looking subies go less that noticed both in terms of public recognition and actually catching the extra attention to detail that people have put into their cars.
I just came across this bugeye wagon with version 2 STI front lip on a full sedan front swap (needed to directly fit the V2 lip)… and one of the more interesting swaps I’ve seen: full “Saabaru” rear end – with rear lift-gate/hatch, bumper and taillights from a Saab 9-2x (i.e. the Saab-branded WRX).
I’m a bugeye purist, but I have to admit that rear end is gorgeous. The Saab 92X rear actually looks more like a refined/updated version the bugeye wagon rear, than do some of the 04-07 wagon rears.
Oh yeah the RS is pretty damn spectacular too… Just focusing more on the bugeye because it’s in the name of the blog… something : D
