Brittany Sanderson: 2002 Subaru WRX

Brittany Sanderson was in a terrible accident on her way home from college about five-years ago. She was hit from behind at a red light and her Subaru was totaled. She then purchased a stock 2002 Subaru WRX in its place.

Since her initial purchase, she says the car has gone through many drastic changes. All the work that you see, along with things you may not see from pictures, like the painted sub-frame, was installed by Sanderson, her boyfriend and a few close friends in her garage. She's very proud of her build and the ability to say, "I did that." She particularly enjoys going into detail and explaining her build to other enthusiasts at car shows. She says a lot of time and thought was involved in the direction she chose to go with this build, and decided to make it stand out from the rest to be noticed.

Sanderson's included many different parts and put her own flare into what she's installed, from the powder-coated front-mount intercooler, to the custom suede full interior, as well as some lights to add an effect. While making these decisions, she wanted her WRX to be a show car, but still be able to drive it on nice days and to the shows themselves. She says her car has become just that while exceeding what she ever imagined.

Sanderson says she put her own personality and flare into the car and that's her favorite aspect. It draws people in and doesn't look like any other vehicle on show. She's very proud to say this is her WRX, and says it's a testament to what a person can do when they put their mind to it.
