Yup, that was Adam! The car is blue though. I saw it again in November but didn't have my camera. I'll probably see it in mid February and I'll try to remember to bring my camera.

Here's a bug eye that's had the 9-2x rear put on. And Aspen White was never an available color on the 9-2x

He finally did it and painted it to match the WRX blue. It looks factory and pretty neat (well, for a Subaru! ). I didn't have my camera with me when I saw the car but as I remember it has the 9-2X front end (A-pillar forward), wheels, side skirts, and maybe some other stuff too (I don't remember about the interior). The best part is the car only has a few thousand miles on it He lives in Gardner, MA so locals, keep your eyes peeled.
