Default Bucky Lasekís YouTube GC build

Hi all,
Iíve made great progress on my build. Feel free to follow along while I try to keep it entertaining

❗️NEW❗️#BuckYeah video is live❗️SUBSCRIBE ❗️
It was about a year ago that I was at a local Subaru show (Subiefest) When a GF wagon with a FA swap first caught my eye. The owner of the car Lance Stewart was one of the nicest people I have ever met introduced me to his friend Brian (iWire) who helped him with the build. Together they offered to help me with what was then just a dream project that who knows when I would ever have the time to build, also keep in mind that Lance's shop (GT Automotive) was located in Utah. Not sure this would ever materialize into an actual build I still kept in touch through the months of hunting for my potential project car. Well I found the car and Brian and Lance both made the time to make this dream a reality. Lance went above and beyond by locating my actual donor car along with coming all the way to Ca. to pick up myself and the car. So I packed my bags for a one of a kind road trip adventure to Utah. Lance you truly are the one that made this build happen and in the awesome fashion that it did, thanks to you and Brian for making this such a special project.

Woah, I knew Bucky had a monster orange Subaru, is this a new project aside from that one? Also, I live in Utah, did he come to Salt Lake to get it? I'll definitely be checking out this video later.

Boy, these western cars are so clean. Out my way in the northeast, those sub frames would look like rust encrusted dinosaurs and removal would involve a variety of torches.

Cool stuff. RallysportDirect must have been like a candy store...

side note: Bucky, it was cool to meet you at X Games last year in Minneapolis. We briefly spoke about WRX's in the athlete's lounge. I had a feeling Bobby B was going to retire...

It was a long time ago, It may have been Travis Pastrana in the video that I watched in all honesty. Now I feel extra dumb because apparently this is really Bucky Lasek and not some promotionaly guy. How'd you like Utah?

I know Ronnie Renner has an Orange caged Hawkeye? He kind of looks as handsome as me

Utah was awesome but we stayed busy in the garage for nearly 3 days straight sleeping a total of about 10hrs
