That looks terrible.
I do agree it looks very magnum-esque. It was just an idea, and seeing what the verdict was, I'm going to say that it's probably a negative on that build.

I'm sure a lot of people must remember the chop top STi with an 08+ STi front end... it's interesting to say the least.

Never seen that swap before, but it's apparent how those two body lines just don't work.

I think it looks extremely nice. I wonder if someone will cut off their front end and actually do it one day. Would be an interesting project.

I broke my prodrive lip on a massive UNPAINTED speed bump. Feeling like Pencils right now

The chopped roof and extreme drop together looks like you rescued a car from the crusher one second too late

Different idea though

I kinda like it. It's something you don't see everyday and look at all the head room he still has left. Plus it is a race car so I mean I would always be looking for ways to have less drag too.

The blue one in the link, isn't too bad I guess. Growing on me by the minute.... Maybe I'm just biased toward the wagon being chopped.

Maybe I cut the top too much? I took almost 7 inches out the top. I'm thinking a 4" chop would look less squashed..

Pencils brought this up a few months ago.

I shopped this up:


IMO, it's just plain yuck with a wagon.
