Version 4.0 - Legacy_Otaku's 2005 Legacy GT (Endless, ARC, Defi, K2, etc.)
It's been a while since I posted, but as a favor to one of my best friends (Legacy_Otaku), I took some pics of his car over the weekend, since he was finally ready to show the Subaru community what he's been up to lately.

Some of you might remember the last thread I posted of his car. It was very nice to begin with at that stage:

But now, have a look at what he's done. I'm just here to post the pictures, and he'll be by shortly to post up the nuts and bolts of what he's accomplished... this is perhaps the sweetest Legacy I've ever seen (and a joy to drive). He built it with lots of blood, sweat, and tears (literally), and everything was carefully researched before making his parts selections.

I think you'll agree that he's done a great job so far. He says he's done, but I don't believe it (nor will I let him stop here :devil:).

Thanks for looking, and despite being really rushed to get these out (work has consumed my life as of late), I do hope that you like the pics.

1st off, all I gotta say is that is one sweet ride. Congrats Ken, you have done a helluva job with your car.

Now track it!!!!!!!!!! :eek: :) :eek:

Mike, why are you working your current job when you clearly have the skillz to be a pro car photog? Seriously, there is big $$$$ in comercial car photography. If I had the shots that you have I would put together a killer portfolio and shop it around. I am truly envious of your shots. I would be your lighting designer any day of the week.
