It's only a small collection here, but i want to share it. Most of it will be body shells only, because i make some that i use on my drifter sometimes.

Let's start with two completely restaured boxart Impreza WRC shells. You can see the making of here .

Subaru Impreza WRC, Colin McRae, Corsica 1997.













Subaru Impreza WRC, Richard Burns, Monte Carlo 1999.











My twin and...
Subaru Impreza WRC, Piero Liatti, Great Brittain 1997.

No Impreza this time and no replica of a real car either.
Here is my Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R drift shell.

Standing next to a friends R32. The same but yet so different.



Going international now. These pictures are taken at the last opening day at Streetjam in the Netherlands.
The license plate comes from NRD in the UK, where i had an amazing drift weekend before.





Every shell used on my drift chassis deserves an action shot. This one is taken at Megadrom in Germany.
It was during a freakin' crazy weekend, when i visited 4 drift tracks on 3 days at 3 countries.
Nice detail on MST chassis are the good looking dummy brakes.



The restauration story can be found in this topic.

1997 was the year when manufacturers could switch from Gr.A rally cars onto the first generation of WRC’s. Subaru was the first brand to come with a well-shaped wide bodied car.

Today, November 9, it is exactly 20 years ago Bruno Thiry won the Condroz Rally ’97 with an Impreza WRC. His strongest opponents were Patrick Snijers and Grégoire de Mévius in their Ford Escort WRC, Freddy Loix, local driver Renaud Verreydt and Danish driver Hendrik Lundgaard in their TTE Celica Gr.A.

Back in the days, Stéphane Prévot was the inseparable co-driver of Thiry. Last weekend they competed the Condroz Rally together again. It was 15 years ago they drove as a team. But as a spectator in 1997, i still remember Thiry’s incredible skills on a very beautifull Impreza with Winfield livery.

Here is my Subaru Impreza WRC Bruno Thiry, Condroz Rally 1997.

Such a great looking car and I love that you have taken the pictures on an actual Winfield flag B)
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem mate :)

Another Scooby is done. I've bought, cleaned and detailed it for the owners of this car.
Now the have their shelf queen. And this oldie has a good new home.













ps: Remark the logo on the first picture and on the fences around the model. Same event, but smaller ;) .

I had one years ago, and since, it is my favourite car. Although i owned two other sportscars after it.
