Thanks to his father, Joseph Junn's passion and interest in cars started at a young age. "I had a massive love for classic muscle, preferably Camaro, Chevelle, Bel Air and Impala," mentions Junn. It never left but when he saw the first Fast & Furious movie, it introduced him to the import world. "That's where I found home," states Junn. He's owned and built several different imports but he's most proud of his current build, a 2019 Subaru WRX. His previous builds include a 1996 Z24 Cavalier, 1995 Eclipse GS-T, 1999 Eclipse GSX, 

1995 200sx, 

2001 ZR1 Blazer, 

2012 WRX. Currently, Junn is building the WRX along with a 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air in a gasser-style.

"Bone stock with less than 1 mile, I signed the papers and brought her home March 20th, 2019 from West Herr Subaru in Orchard Park, NY," mentions Junn. Within a couple of short weeks, parts started to come in, with more parts being ordered. "It hasn't stopped yet and I'm far from where I personally want it to be," states Junn, "but it's getting there."


All the work on the WRX has been done by Junn and fellow Team Concept members. "I couldn't be more thrilled to have the support that I do."

"The biggest reason for this build is my Nannie," mentions Junn. "She passed away from Stage 4 full-body cancer that no one knew she had until it was too late." She always pushed him to accomplish whatever he set out to do, and she was his best friend. The cancer-theme build started because of her. Additionally, his parents and best friend motivate him to build the WRX. "I'm not sure I would have gotten this far without their support."
