2005 Subaru Legacy GT - Legacy In The Making

Roger Malla's JDM Hearse Is Killing US

Not many of our features are daily drivers, and not many of them can be that useful on the streets, but Roger Malla has built his Legacy wagon into the ultimate daily driver. Got a hatchback or sedan for a daily driver? Well, he's got a five-door hatchback. Got a turbo on your car? Well, he's got a Deadbolt turbo kit putting down 384whp. I really have to admit it, this car has it all. Everything from brakes to the JDM aero it covers all facets, from audio to performance and even a touch of VIP.

This all started as a daily driver about three years ago. After a few months of lurking the Legacy forums online, Roger was set on building the ultimate Legacy out of his daily driver. His resume of tuned cars include a Honda Civic EF, Celica and the classic Corolla AE86, so he's no newbie to building cars. But this time around, things went a bit differently - audio and wood paneling to name a few things.

The JDM and Zero Sport products already makes this Subaru stand out amongst the rest. To top it all off, my favorite rarities are his Blitz Technospeeds, extremely rare in 5x100, and his Top Secret steering wheel. Roger definitely did his homework when it comes to rare JDM goodies. We don't get to see enough modified Legacys and almost never get to see a Legacy wagon built to this level. Next time you see a wagon driving down the road, think twice about how it would look slammed and boosted.
