Car Description:
This s203 is actually a clone of the s203 that I owned while stationed in Japan.

While I was there, I made some friends with some local Japanese car guys. When I was finally allowed to have a Japanese driver's license due to military laws, I connected with my Japanese friends and went searching for a car. Ryo and Kuni. Ryo was fluent in English and loved American Muscle, while Kuni owned an S204 and S206 Nurburgring Edition. Having previous experience with Subaru's I chose to search for a STi. Eventually was persuaded into getting the s203, thus my ownership of #200. I made many memories and stories with my newfound friends going to the local mountains basically every weekend I had off from duty. Those memories meant so much to me that I wanted to keep them, which led me to stripping the car. My time remaining in Japan was running thin not being able to find a way to ship it, stripping it felt like my only option, and rebuilding it on a donor chassis later on. So, A couple of friends and I spent a full weekend stripping it to its bare shell. I was able to keep a vast majority of items in storage before the Navy packed up all my belongings. Fast forward years and changes in my life, I found a running donor and have slowly been putting those pieces back together again. And this is where it's at now.
