Fantasy Finds Friday: A real Subaru WRX STI rally rocket

ken block subaru wrx sti fff Last week, I offered up a vintage off-roader as my Fantasy Find for that Friday. An old Toyota Land Cruiser is a wonderful beast that’s built to take down tough terrain. What if you want to handle some of that terrain at speeds a bit higher than 15 miles per hour though? You should opt for a rally car, and that’s just what I’ve found for this week. My FFF for today is a [sc:ebay itemid=”121383381662″ linktext=”Subaru WRX STI C-Spec RA built in 2007″]. This specific car was setup for Ken Block during his time running down in New Zealand. It was used during the winter rally season, and it also participated in a rather spectacular video moment when it was launched off of a snowboard jump. It was also crashed on that jump too, so it looks like someone put in the time and effort to put the car back together. Regardless, the car in the ad appears to be legit, and it would make one hell of a machine for ones winter ski lodge. Remember, this is Fantasy Finds Friday – so yeah, I have a ski house where I can store this thing. subaru wrx sti ken block for sale The [sc:ebay itemid=”121383381662″ linktext=”asking price is $125,000″].
