The first generation of Subaru Impreza has become somewhat of an icon among car enthusiasts, engraved into the minds of those who witnessed the intense battles waged in the stages of world rally with the likes of Colin McRae and Carlos Saintz at the wheel in the Japanese domination era of rally in the 1990s. The first generation shape matured well over its 8 years in production, culminating in arguably some of best looking Imprezas in 22b and rb5 guises; however when the second generation “bug-eye” was launched in 2000 it caused quite a controversy, it looked polarizing to say the least and, if you ask even the Subaru faithful, it has a cult following not universal acclaim.

This past weekend on the island of Hawaii enthusiasts gathered at the Aloha Stadium in hopes of what should be a pretty chill day to relax and just meet new people and show off their flashy rides. Of coarse mother nature had other plans in store and turned this show into a washed out event. Despite the on going rain our photographer Elaine Domingo still managed to get as much coverage as she possibly could, please enjoy these photos by Elaine and stay tuned for more coverage from Brock Hanawahine later today.
They say you can tell a lot about a person based on how they keep their car, well I guess this means Gil is a clean 2000 4Dr Rally Red Honda Civic LX sedan that runs as good as it looks. With that said where do we start? The car is immaculate , the exterior has front and rear bumpers from 96-98 sir as well as a 96-98 sir front lip and folding mirrors.
Hosted at the Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, GA this has been a two day event where enthusiasts came out by the hundreds to meet and greet each other and also enjoy the spring weather. From the looks of things this was a very good turn out and I’m very happy to see everyone coming out and showing their support to the car culture. Sit back and enjoy these photos taken by our very own Brandon Davis and be sure to check back for part 2 of IA.
