‘Very few Im­prezas are stan­dard any more’

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Living With Classics - SI­MON LINES

Ex-Pro­drive guru Si­mon says: ‘Some own­ers want some­thing safe, re­li­able and fast; they’ll do the re­search and spend the money. But many more buy a car on the cheap and try to run it cheaply by turn­ing up the boost be­fore blow­ing it up – and another pro­ject ap­pears for sale. Very few Im­prezas are stan­dard any more; JDM cars are par­tic­u­larly prone to strange mod­i­fi­ca­tions fit­ted in Ja­pan, or the re­sult of abuse from own­ers who don’t un­der­stand that this per­for­mance comes with a price.’
