Rene first came to us in summer of 2020 with a bone stock STI which was dubbed "Casper the STI". It's safe to say that his dream car project has come a very long way since then. Here are some words from Rene himself;
"This car is more than a metal machine to me, it saved my life after a lot of health issues. I wanted to bring the passion for cars back into my everyday life and use my story as a symbol of positivity. Once I found out about the team at Boostbarn I knew Aaron would make all my build dreams come to life.
I went to Aaron with a list and a general idea of what kind of build I wanted ( which changed drastically ) the further and further we went.
I had very little knowledge of Subaru's but Boostbarn took control as we built “ CasperTheSti “ in 2 separate stages. We started with this being a reliable but fun daily driver and that quickly turned into a straight show build being the 1st 2015+WRX/STI in Canada to put on the Pandem Oiram widebody kit. Aaron and his team absolutely made my dreams come true and I am proud to say that because of Boostbarn and their amazing hard work, my car is now a three time 1st place winning car including a 1st place win in all of Canada with over 2000 cars entered.
My build is meant to inspire and spread good vibes and without this Boostbarn team I would never be where I am with this platform today!
Thank you for EVERYTHING !
