While this build itself is very impressive and highly detailed, it’s the other automotive work that the owner partakes in that will really pique your interest. His car of choice is a 1991 Subaru Legacy RS, a love affair that started while serving an apprenticeship with Subaru, working on race and rally cars for Possum Bourne in New Zealand. This chassis started life as a Legacy Sport, but is now on it’s way to becoming an RS Type RA thanks to a ground-up rebuild and a selection of high-end additions. As for his other work? Well, let’s just say his duties include rebuilding Formula 1 cars, IndyCars, IMSA racers, and exotic road/race cars, so you know his personal car is going to be of a very high caliber. Make sure you head to the bottom of the post to see these bonus images.

Imagine for a second that you just bought a car, but that car was located 1800 miles away, meaning you had to travel that distance to collect the car, and then drive it all the way back home. Now, keep your imagination going, and ponder how you’d feel if that same car got stolen from your driveway less than one week after you bought it. Pretty shattering, right? Well, what if it wasn’t just stolen, but also crashed, flipped, and completely totaled by the theif? I think I’d curl up in a ball and just cry. But not Jeff, the owner of this turbo’d Mazda Miata/MX5. After taking a week to grieve, he sought about buying a replacement car and rebuilding it piece by piece, ensuring no dirty or unpainted/polished product so much as touches the car. It culminates in one of the cleanest MX5’s on the planet, better than when it rolled off the production line.
