Default can you identify these signatures

Our recently received JDM STI RA had the sun visor signed and I was a bit curious if the sigs ring any bells. Let me know what you know:



It's always fun to learn the history on a car we get in.

The one on the right is Tommi Makinen.

I'm going out on a limb here, but it looks related to Subaru's recent PWRC efforts. I wonder if the one on the left isn't George Donaldson, STi's Group N director? Just a guess.

good stuff. Thank you all for the input. I guess we have some more 'shop flare' to hang up lol.

We also found a photo of what I suspect to be the owner within the car along w/ the entire owners manual. Kind of crazy to think someone once drove this RA and now it is thousands of miles away in 2 pieces.

We 'kind of' of pictures of it. None of the rear end oddly enough.

For your viewing pleasure, you can watch the cars evolution. It used to have some Bronze 17s on there (all bashed up and here at the shop w/ mud flaps (freebies + s/h) too).









to be cont'd.

Life in the US, not so happy as it was for the lil' guy back home in Japan. I stil lhave a photo of what I believe to be the owner here as well as the owners manual. If one of the other guys get a slow moment I'll have them scan them in and post them up.

Now you can own the front clip! Glamerous I know, but it houses an entire right hand drive conversion. See it here or on ebay below

meant to say that the Pink Sti mud flaps are the freebies

CF front markers have sold. Rear badges went w/ our Sti Ginome Gauge set (we have one more Ginome trio gauge cluster to offer).
