So most of you all know me and Blair(STIRA) now, and the machines we own and built,so we thought it will be a good idea to showcase what we are doing when we are not working on our own cars, and when we are together we are known as Team Stars and Stripes, between us we have over 15 years of experience with Subarus and offer the people of hawkes bay, mechanical service,diagnostics as well as performance advice. (pays for our race car lol)
as we complete jobs we will showcase our work, and experiences with said jobs.

That blue one should be in the car crimes section, from front bumper to back bumper, some people should not be aloud to own cars, or be anywhere near them!!!

<Shale>: Blighter doesn't really have an accelerator pedal, it's more just a loudness pedal. You can change volume, but you won't go any faster.


<mjlqtown>: (Southern US accent) I'v excised the demon! This car is now clear!


<Reuben>: I feel like when you stomp the throttle in Blighter, it's like you've startled an old man!
