Default Vigilant Motorsports Bugeye

Hey guys, I'm Dave. I'm a professional photographer (www.davidmullis.net) in the St. Louis, MO area and also work as head of marketing and inventory manager at an exotic car dealership (www.exoticmotorsmidwest.com).

I have been interested in cars and tuning for 10+ years. But it wasn't until I bought my old 2003 sonic yellow wrx wagon that I really got pulled into the car world. Sean Gyles aka Vigilant Motorsports (www.vigilantmotorsports.com) has been a close friend for some time now and has always helped me with anything I have needed with my car. Sean's business has recently picked up and it was time for him to expand his company into a larger market than the fairly limited group of Subaru owners in the St. Louis area. He told me his family was looking at moving out to the Pacific northwest and that some of their personal vehicles would be going up for sale soon. Obviously I couldn't pass up great deals on great cars that I know had been built and maintained correctly. I quickly sold my wagon to purchase his '02 shop car, and my girlfriend picked up their '04 FXT.

The bugeye build as of now:

Looks great, can't tell if it's the quality of the photographs or the car itself. He doesn't happen to have another one for sale does he?
