With the image of a Rally Blue car on Gold Wheels airborne over a crest, many have set out to build their WRX STIs into machines that would emulate the image burned into their heads.
I’ve been long waiting for this opportunity, a chance to share a full feature on RX-7s with our readers here on TUNED.
